6 Exciting Home Renovation Ideas For The New Year

10 Best Home Remodeling Ideas | Home Renovation Ideas | Foyr

The saying goes new year, new you. While January’s arrival does encourage many to begin reinventing themselves or making changes to their daily routine, it is also a time that many begin to rethink their living spaces, with interior designs and renovations being thrust into the spotlight. 

If you are interested in revitalising your home, whether to blow off the cobwebs and begin loving your living space even more or to increase its appeal and, as a result, its market value, then we have six exciting ways that you can take on the task. 

Making Space

Open-plan living spaces have become increasingly popular among homeowners, and for good reason. In addition to generally increasing a property’s value, an open-plan conversion also increases living space while improving natural light and airflow, making a home even more attractive and pleasant to live in.

If you have the potential to merge two or more rooms without compromising a property’s infrastructure, then the new year might just be the opportunity to begin opening up your home and making space for living.

Eco-Friendly Designs

There is, now, a greater awareness of carbon footprints, with homeowners seeking more ways that their own carbon emissions can be minimised. A home can be the ideal place to begin improving your sustainability, with renovation projects like composting systems and solar panels being both easy to take on and remarkably beneficial to the environment.

Garden Extension

There are a number of ways in which a home’s living space can be extended. Some will expand their property into their garden, grow a kitchen or establish a conservatory. Others will choose to create outbuildings, such as log cabins or summer houses. Both options are worthy investments and can create a number of new possibilities for residents.

Fresh Face

Painting a home benefits both residents and a property’s value in a number of ways. Firstly, it helps to revitalise a space, making it feel new. Secondly, it covers blemishes, those associated with wear and tear, essentially repairing living spaces. Finally, with the right colour, it can totally reinvent the ‘feel’ of a room, bringing new life into a lesser-used space.

Smart Living

There are a number of smart features that can be incorporated into a home, from smart boilers to virtual assistants. However, some of these features require rewiring or small renovations. With the opportunity a new year affords, it can be the perfect time to rewire your home and lay the foundations to install car charging points, smart speakers, and even digital security features.

Extra Storey

If your property has the potential for an extra storey, even a room or extension to be established on top of a currently flat and secure part of the home, then you can increase your property’s value with one undertaking. 

Extra storeys can be a much-needed opportunity to repair external facades and walls while also opening up living spaces, bringing in more natural light, and even improving the overall appearance of your property.
