Home improvement ideas for 2018

Inspired by the concept of a fresh start, and with the rush of Christmas behind us, the New Year can be the best time to start thinking about home improvement.

If you’ll be sprucing up your home anytime soon, you might want to try one of these popular design trends:

Italia Collection Ancona Composite Door in Red

Splashes of colour

Incorporating accent colours into an otherwise neutral colour scheme has been a popular approach to home design for some time now, with colourful rugs, cushions and other decor items never going out of style.

But in 2018, warm tones are definitely leading the way. Adding bright red decorative items will brighten up the interior of any home, and you can continue this outdoors with a striking composite door in a rich Red finish.


Rich colours

If you like the idea of adding bold colours to your home, without going quite as intense as a bright red, then the emerging trend of deep, luxurious colours could be for you. Whether you opt for Blue, Rich Aubergine or go a little lighter with Peacock Blue, these rich tones will add an element of interest that won’t feel too overbearing.


Dark wood

Whether you combine it with dark coloured walls, or as a standout piece to contrast with lighter shades, dark wood is set to take the lead in 2018. Dark wooden features look right at home in traditional and contemporary properties alike. Solidor colours such as Rosewood, Walnut and Schwarzbraun will help you perfect this timeless trend.


Thornbury Composite Door in Painswick


Scandinavian interiors have been on trend for a few years now, and we can’t see the minimalist design scheme disappearing anytime soon. A Thornbury door in White would complement the crisp, clean lines featured in Scandi design brilliantly, and create a sleek, understated entryway to your home.

Alternatively, if you wanted to add some colour to the front of your home without compromising the overall minimalist theme, pastel shades such as Chartwell Green, Painswick and Duck Egg will liven up white and light neutral interiors without overpowering them.
