While you should base your home renovation only on the year's latest trends, there is nothing wrong with incorporating some of the latest trends in your home renovation. When deciding on which trends to use, you want to think about your personal preferences and design themes that you have in mind. You should also get input from your spouse and children since they have neat ideas on how the home can be renovated.

Bold Colors Are In

According to some interior design insiders, there is the trend to use bold and bright colors for the walls inside the home. Turquoise, lime green, magenta, light yellow, and orange are all colors that are in style for home decorators this year. If you don't want to paint your walls in bold colors, you can put bold colored furniture and accessories in the rooms you're renovating and paint the walls in neutral tones.

Mid Century Design Continues To Be Popular

Another trend among home decorators is the use of mid century themes in designing a home. Mid century is a period of home decorating that ranged from the mid 1930s to the early 1960s and this is characterized by geometric shaped furniture, Formica countertops and vinyl flooring as well as vinyl chairs with metal legs. Mid century design also involves usage of bold colors and simple appliances.

Open Spaced Kitchen and Dining Room

These days more homeowners are getting away from dividing the kitchen and dining room and instead they're opting for open access kitchens and dining room. When you have an open space kitchen and dining room, the space looks more inviting to guests and it creates a better atmosphere.

Antiques Are In Style

Today's homeowners are using vintage furniture and accessories in their homes and this is why more homeowners are using antiques to decorate their homes. These may include vintage lampshades, wrought iron collectibles, Art Deco style furniture and artwork, Persian rugs, African or Asian collectibles and terracotta vases for flowers.

Luxurious Bathrooms

There is a growing trend where homeowners seek to build luxurious bathrooms that are still simplistic in nature. Expect to see more bathrooms with fancy walk in showers, marble tile flooring, pedestal sinks, heated flooring, chandeliers, and jacuzzi style bathtubs. You'll also see a trend in Asian style bathrooms which sometimes include a separation of the tub and the rest of the bathroom.

Sustainable Home Renovation

2014 is also the year of the increase in sustainable home renovation. Some people are renovating their homes in a sustainable way by installing bamboo or cork flooring while others install LED light fixtures in the home. The local and state government offers tax credits to those who go green in home building so this is another reason for the rise in sustainable renovation. Energy efficient appliances are also a part of going green in home renovation.


We have come a long way since previous decades regarding home renovation and today we not only renovate for style purposes but also for functionality and sustainability.
