Home improvement trends are continuously evolving and it’s important that your property evolves too. Don’t worry though if you feel completely out of the loop with current fashionable tendencies as this blog post will get you right up to speed with what’s been causing a stir in home improvements in 2018.

Smart Technology

Almost all of us have Wi-Fi at home and some form of mobile device and the combination of the two enables you to control home appliances at the touch of a button.

People are quickly realising the benefits of using a smart thermostat like Nest to manage energy usage more efficiently when in or out of the house and things like smart fridges that recommend recipes based on the ingredients you have in the kitchen.

Amazon’s digital assistant ‘Alexa’ is similarly finding favour amongst those who love the idea of issuing commands to control products throughout their home. Boiling water taps are also growing in popularity as they supply instant hot water.


We are enjoying one of our best spells of weather in recent memory and you can entice more of that natural light indoors with a skylight. Skylights are a fixed or operational glazed area that you can integrate into available space in the ceiling of a room.

Scientific research has shown that exposure to natural light can improve our overall wellbeing and leave us feeling energised.

The abundance of light that a skylight brings in also somehow helps to make interiors feel more spacious and homeowners are taking full advantage of this.


There’s no let-up in the number of householders choosing to neglect moving and opting to improve their current place with some form of home extension.

A host of conservatory and orangery styles are now available as a result of this continued demand for home extensions – T-shaped, P-Shaped, Tiled Roof, modern, traditional…

Investing in an extension will also leave you on the front foot when selling as it will spark buyer interest and improve the valuation of your property.
