Home Renovation Trends in 2014



Sometimes, it feels like your quality of life has gone down, despite the fact that everything is just the way it was. It’s a proven fact that the way our homes are designed has a direct effect on our mental wellbeing and the way you feel about your life. For example, if your home has a tropical décor, then you will be more naturally inclined to pursue and accommodate an active lifestyle. If you’re thinking about taking a vacation, why not consider home renovation for a minute?

Home renovation can make you feel comfortable and at peace with your premises again. Even if it fails to achieve that, it does increase the value of your property- so it’s always a win-win situation. Now that we’re in the last quarter of 2014, it’s time we have a look at the most significant home renovation trends for the year.

Décor and Theme

2014 was unofficially (by popular demand) the year of minimal décor and Asian inspired themes. Open floor plans started to become popular in 2013, and as of today, most homeowners seek décor that allows them to make efficient use of space. That being said, tropical décor and western themes remain as popular as ever, if not more. Tropical décor has an ageless richness about it, and Western themes work all so well for the winter months.

Based on what your personal preferences are, choose a décor that suits your lifestyle. This will make you feel more at peace within home, which is the essential of any good décor. On top of that, homes that feature décor are more likely to have greater add-on value than homes that do not.

Remodeled Kitchens and Bathrooms

The whole concept of kitchens and bathrooms has changed significantly over the past couple of years. More and more people today like to spend time in their kitchens and bathrooms as a result of remodeling. Modern kitchens appliances like stove, oven, cutlery spaces, and so on are minimalistic, to allow more room for sitting and recreation.

As for bathrooms, they are getting larger and more luxurious in 2014 than ever. Resort-style bathrooms are becoming trendy, with open floor plans, large bathtubs, chic showers, and themes that compliment the home décor. For example, if you have a rustic décor in your home, then you can incorporate the washroom with the whole theme by installing wooden materials and making room for a spa. If you have limited area to work on in your bathrooms, you can always consider remodeling it to add more space. While it will require some investment, the end result will allow you to relax and unwind in a beautifully set-up bathroom after a good, hard day of work.


Home renovation trends in 2014 are not just limited to the interior. In fact, landscaping your lawn or garden is one of the most popular ways to make your property attractive. By investing in your porch with fountains and foundation stones for instance, you can create a luxurious entry to your magnificent home. When it comes to landscaping, remember to create a look that you will cherish while spending your free time on the porch.
