Now that all the craziness has settled after the holidays, it’s time for a home project!
1. Use repurposed materials
A great example of an easy-to-use repurposed material is wood. You can create big or small projects with reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood is when wood is taken from an original project and dedicated to another use. Reclaimed wood makes for a great headboard in a master bedroom, or can be added to a wall in any room in a cool design.
2. Make your home smarter
There are digital thermostats, lightbulbs that change color by a click on your phone, and speakers that talk back. If you make your home smart, your life will be easier. From Amazon to Google, you’ll be able to turn off that TV you forgot about from the comfort of your bed. Install a digital assistant, like Siri for your house, and take the time to connect everything through like lights, TVs, AC, and you’ll realize that you can save money and time!
3. Marble everything
Forget only using marble for countertops. Think about what you can put on your countertops to bring them to the next level. Marble accents and accessories will pop up throughout the home, and come in all shapes and sizes. Crate & Barrel has an expansive selection of marble accessories ranging from wine coolers to paper towel holders.
4. Mix materials
Mixing materials throughout your home adds a dynamic component to any design concept. By adding some concrete features and stainless appliances to rustic decor, you get a modern rustic flair in any room. In this kitchen on Houzz, you can see the successful use of different materials. Wood and metal make a great combination. Cork, as an accent, is also making it’s way into homes in 2017.
5. Lots of neutrals
Gray was the color in 2016, and it’s not going anywhere in 2017. Add a few more neutrals in, like beiges and tans, to your decor and you’ll be ready to take 2017 by storm. You don’t have to use a bold color as an accent in a room, neutrals can add depth and warmth to any room. Sherwin Williams picked “poised taupe” as the hottest color in 2017. Sherwin – we agree!
