3 Most Popular 2021 Home Improvement Trends
Last year saw some significant changes in the way we live, work and socialise. The several national and local lockdowns meant that many of us spent (and are still spending!) more time within our homes and gardens and as a result, homeowners have taken to improving their Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire homes to create living spaces that feel safe, warm, light and comfortable. Spaces where we can work or relax and enjoy the ‘feel-good’ emotions we have inevitably lost as we cannot do some of the things we were used to, such as travelling.
We are transforming our homes into sanctuaries, extending our living spaces with new conservatories and orangeries, making our homes safer with quality composite and uPVC doors and replacing our windows with modern, energy efficient ones to save money on energy bills but also to bring more light inside our homes.
Last year started many new home improvement trends and designers, architects and industry media have been busy making predictions for 2021. Here we have rounded up their big ideas for you!
Trend 1: More Glass, More Light
After we have all spent almost a year confined to our homes, the key trend is for bringing the outside in and flooding our living spaces with natural light and fresh air, enjoying views of our gardens. Bifold doors and sliding patio doors make this connection seamless. They are also incredibly elegant and stylish.
Aluminium bifold doors have slim, yet very sturdy frames and large glazed areas. With many configuration options and a choice of any colour from the RAL chart for the perfect finishing touch, our bifold doors can be customised to a very fine detail to help you create the perfect addition to your home. They are tested to more than 120,000 full opening cycles, providing a super smooth and reliable technology for your home.
Slim-framed sliding patio doors act as a wall of glass that will maximise the light that enters your living space and brighten up rooms. They have an effortless and silent ‘air-glide’ operation through highly durable stainless steel rollers. Large expanses of glass in a sliding patio door can transform an ordinary kitchen or living room into a spectacular and inviting light-filled space that changes with the seasons. An uninspiring dining room can now enjoy panoramic views of your garden and beyond, making it the perfect setting to enjoy a private moment in your own dream space.
Trend 2: Cottagecore Country Living
If you’ve started to see a steady trickle of countryside scenes in your online social media streams, you are not alone. The pandemic has triggered a reappraisal of urban living, with increasing numbers fleeing city confines in search of green space and a country living style.
To achieve the perfect country look opt for timber alternative windows and doors with beautiful heritage colour tones such as our popular Light Ivory, Agate Grey and Pebble Grey.
Flush casement windows are a great alternative for old timber or steel designs. The reason it is called a flush window is the window closes flush into the outer frame, sitting in line with the face of the window. This means there is no visible lip when looking at the window from outside of the property.
Another popular elegant style are vertical sliding windows which combine high-performance modern benefits with all the charm and character of period timber sash windows.
The result is a suite of easy-to-operate, low-maintenance windows that never need painting, but which offer enhanced security, ‘A’ rated thermal efficiency and excellent sound insulation as standard.
Last but not least, aluminium windows are strong, secure and an excellent long-term investment for your property as they will last for decades to come and require very little maintenance. They have super slim sight lines and will allow natural light to flood your home as a result. Ours are made from 100% recyclable aluminium, making it also a great environmentally friendly choice for your home improvement project.
Trend 3: Extended Living Spaces
The working from home trend isn’t coming to an end any time soon. Many of us feel the need for extra space where we can work or relax. There is no better way to bring more space and light to your home than by adding a stunning new conservatory. A conservatory by its very nature is a room with vast expanses of glass which allows natural light to pour into your home, leaving you with the perfect place to relax and recharge your energy.
Whether you prefer contemporary or traditional design, we offer many styles including Victorian, Edwardian, Gable-End, P-shaped, T-shaped or Lean-To, in both uPVC and aluminium materials. With new technology such as energy efficient windows and solar control conservatory roofs, a new conservatory is a great choice as you can now enjoy your added living space all year round. Or consider making the ultimate transformation this year and add a luxurious new orangery to your home. Check out our special offers on conservatories here!
