It seems as though anytime you go online these days all you see are homes which have elegant and beautiful décor, and it can be extremely hard not to become envious of such a thing. Many of these homes are often a distant dream, but there are certain ones, that with some compromise and alterations can actually look fantastic in your home.

One thing which is extremely important to remember when re-designing or decorating your home is that you work with the space you have, and not what you could have. This means that you can be fully realistic with what you decide to do with your home, and instead of being left disheartened by what could’ve been, you can look ahead to what you can do! With that in mind, the following trends listed below for 2017, will help you make sure that your decoration plans are up to date with the latest interior themes.


When it comes to adding technology into your home, it can be very easy to become obsessed with the latest gadgets and ‘must haves’, which can actually make your home look worse as it creates clutter and a lack of flow. Therefore, a great way to overcome this is by trying to hide your cables, lay them out as neatly as possible, or hook them up their walls. Whichever method you choose in your home it is important that there is not a lot clutter – as this can ruin the affect that using technology has in your home. So you should try to find clear, or minimalistic cabinets, which are stylish and can hold all your items. Another great trend if you have the money is to build small holes in your walls that can hold the latest tablets.

A Switch in Furniture

Furniture is a piece of décor which certainly isn’t cheap, and it can actually add thousands onto the budget you have set. However, if you look properly for all the best options which are available to you, then you may find yourself in the position where you find something that is worth investing in. A trend which has continued is the fact that leather furniture has continued to grow in popularity going into 2017, which has seen people go for furniture which is attractive and comfortable. However, a big trend this year has seen cane furniture begin to soar in popularity, as they now come with an array of beautiful fabrics and a fashionable design. The important thing with furniture is making sure that it is suitable for your home, offering versatility, which is exactly what rattan furniture gives you. For instance, you wouldn’t want to use a corner sofa if you have a room which is more round rather than flat.

Natural Light

As basic as this sounds, natural light is certainly one of the best ways you can refresh the décor in your home. You can also incorporate a new color scheme into your home and make your home brighter by using a lighter color opposed to using a darker palette. With the colors used, you should aim to be more adventurous and choose to mix and match with the types of colors used, this gives you the option to try to make your home look more modern, so why not try it? This allows you to use the natural light to better effect, as it combines with these brighter colors to instantly make your home glow up.

Bathroom Refurbishments

When it comes to bathrooms, they are often the last space to ever be redecorated as it can be hard to make something of a ‘boring’ toilet and shower. So why not consider adding a spa or open-plan shower into your bathroom? In this modern age, there are a huge number of things you can choose to make your bathroom more luxurious, and it appears that in 2017 there are going to be more ways to do this in all varieties of homes.

  1. I’m in the process of picking new decor for my main bathroom. I feel like it’s an easy room to make big changes to without necessarily having to spend a lot of money!

  2. I added that open shower in my new bathroom and I love it. Next I’m redoing my bedroom and will be taking the natural light into consideration now. I would love to have a bright, elegant bedroom. I’ve neglected it since it isn’t a room that visitors see.

  3. Technology is becoming a huge part of any home. Everything can be controlled through an app these days, from the TV to the fridge to the central heating and more. It’s definitely helpful.

  4. Charging cables are one of the main culprits of clutter in the house. I attached a regular hook on the wall near the outlet to keep things more organized. I am also looking at repainting the ceiling in my bedroom as well as redoing the toilets.

  5. im obsessed with our room light! i think there are 4-6 light bulbs in my room! aside from the lamp and my ring light for make up table lol.

  6. These are all such great home decor ideas, I’ll keep them in mind as I want to refresh the decor in my home. Bringing more natural light would be definitely a good option! Thanks for the suggestions!

  7. I think these are all great tips and I do like having technology play a part in when I am decorating my space
    of living.

  8. I have to step in to do some important makeover to my bathroom and kitchen lately. With technology making a huge impact, it would be interesting what additions could make it worthy!

  9. These are nice ideas and good to think about! I don’t have the budget to do much of anything right now, but I would love to some day!
