Give Your Home A Trendy 2014 Makeover!

A lowdown on the latest home décor trends this year.

Another year has arrived and for a fresh start,why don't you think of updating your home with the latest trends? It’s a good step to take if you wish to begin the year on a new note.

Let’s start with the walls. Why not play with bright, ravishing colour palettes? For 2014, there are a few trending color options for you, among which Radiant Orchid seems to be a great pick. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, describes this color thus: “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

There is also a great demand for the navy blue, peacock blue and cobalt shades. Instead of white and beige walls, you can go for a black backdrop to add more drama and glamour to the metallic accessories you have at your home. Mint lime is also a cool colour for the season.

When it comes to designing rooms, focus on one room at a time. The kitchen is the heart of your home so why not give it a makeover this year? Make it a space to eat, entertain and relax. The latest trend in kitchen design is elaborate custom cabinetry painted in rich gemstone colours. Some unusual lighting fixtures can add some glamour to your kitchen. Oaks, walnut and cherry cabinets are outdated and are now mostly used for furniture.

When it comes to furniture like sofa and bed, you can go for the ones with storage spaces inside them. If you have some vintage furniture at your home, make sure to add more detail to it. It’s a piece of furniture that always stands out in a home and never go out of style. Floral designs for room décor are very popular this year as they give your rooms a fresh, blooming effect. Try to find your own style and make a statement; for example, mixing up metals, wood and fabrics, is a great idea.

A thoughtfully designed bathroom can be a great place to relax after a tiring day. Why not create a spa-like environment in your bathroom this year? For this you can get some futuristic bath fixtures like waterfall showers or the ultra-modern touch faucets. You can keep some colourful bath towels and other accessories to bring in a fresh, rejuvenating effect. If you plan to change the flooring, mosaic tiles can be a good option. Mosaic tiles can really give your bathroom a posh look.

So why wait, kickstart this New Year by giving your home a brand new look!
