High-End Renovation Trends for Elevating Your Home's Aesthetic and Value

Redditch Editorial 2nd Jun, 2024   0

Are you updating your home?

Whether you’re planning a revamp so that you can renew your love for your home or thinking of ways to boost its value, there are plenty of ways to renovate the space.

Should I renovate?

Depending on how much you want to change, home renovation can be a costly and time-consuming process. But it can be worth the effort if it means you have a beautiful space to live in when it’s completed.

Or, if you’re thinking of selling your home, you could find that making some astute additions now means you can ask for more when it comes to putting it on the market. This is especially important if you plan on selling in 2024 as property prices are set to fall this year.

Major updates like an extension require careful consideration. This new space can go a long way towards increasing your property’s value. However, it’s worth thinking about what the extension is for. Will you use it as a living space or a kitchen, for instance? For any major updates, having a plan in place will go a long way towards directing other considerations such as materials and accessories.

Ultimately, the decision to make changes around the home depends on your own circumstances and the reasons for the updates. If you are looking for some inspiration, however, here are some luxe looks and ideas to consider.

Premium materials and finishes

You might be updating your kitchen or reimagining your hallway. Consider upscale materials such as marble, granite, and hardwood. These could tie in with the current trend for sustainable materials around the home, especially if you source reclaimed materials from eco-conscious suppliers. Additionally, imported tiles can create a sense of luxury in bathrooms and on flooring.

Oversized, statement pieces are another major trend in 2024. Opting for bombastic designer lighting fixtures adds a high-end feel to a space while tapping into key styles.

Personalised luxury

If you’re considering introducing a custom-built element, such as a wine cellar, home theatre, or spa bathroom, this can enhance your home. You can make this new space totally tailored to you, too.

For instance, if you want to build a games room, you can design this in a way that matches your favourite games and sports. You might want to add a pool table or use the room for computer gaming.

Similarly, if you’ve always longed for a walk-in wardrobe, this is the perfect opportunity to explore your options and work out how you can do this in your home. Within the wardrobe, you can incorporate tailored design solutions to suit your own taste and needs. Do you need extra space for your shoes? Is there space for a chair? This is your chance to make your new addition completely yours.

Add some tech

Smart homes are increasingly becoming our reality. From automated windows to lighting, we have the innovations now to completely update our homes. As well as making things easier and more convenient, many of these smart solutions are energy efficient. For instance, smart heating systems make it possible to switch on the radiators when you need them, all via an app.

While these updates are dependent upon your budget, they can be a worthwhile investment. Weigh up the costs to see where swapping to a more luxurious material or innovative tech can see an ROI. You could be surprised by what you discover.
