6 Trendy Updates You Should Do To Your Home In 2016

January 7, 2016
BOOKMARK

Want to give your home a makeover this New Year? You don’t have to do much, thankfully! We sussed out what we think will be hot trends for 2016 that you can easily try right at home.

Do Away With Traditional Patterned Wallpaper

Patterned wallpaper? So last season. Why not give your home a more sophisticated feel by using natural elements? For example, a wooden panel is a quick option for a calming Nordic vibe as seen in this example. Pick one with grains for a textured feel and a darker shade for a masculine touch when paired with leather.

Go Plush With Rugs

A sure-fire way to add a luxe feel to your home? Decorate with a plush rug that says comfy and expensive all at the same time. Go for a minimalist design – one basic colour that helps unify the entire look in your space. Grey is a great hue to lend that sumptuous look.

Play Up With A Neutral Colour Palette

Bright hues can be quite distracting, which is why the opposite – going neutral – is a more soothing approach, especially in large spaces like the living room. Neutral colours like muted beige, grey and white lend a pleasing appeal that is harmonious. Keep to the same theme in other rooms for a flow throughout.

Pick One Bold Hue

OK – so you really like bold colours. For this to work, the idea is to keep to one complementing hue that blends in with the rest of your space. For example, a reddish orange (a hot colour this season by the way, according to Pantone) sofa that blends in with other warm hues like beige and brown. Pick complementing colours that stand out without creating too much contrast.

Create Space By Being Minimal

Clutter is the first thing that needs to go if you want to give your home a makeover. Plus, a clutter-free room looks more spacious and instantly has that hotel-room feel. So this year, why not clear out the junk to give your home that boutique feel? Best place to start is your bedroom where ideally you want to create a sanctuary, not a storeroom.

Patterned Tiles

A quick way to instantly change the overall look of your bathroom, patterned tiles are not only easy to install but are also a great way to express your style. Give it a single wall treatment for a more elegant feel. Take cue from this bathroom where the use of patterned tiles completely sets the tone of a Mediterranean bathhouse right at home.
