Patio Remodel
One great way to revitalise your home this year is with a patio renovation. Adding new, weather -resistant outdoor furniture can give a new lease of life to your pation. Experiment with different colour paint and look for something that is both functional and comfortable. Outdoor radiant heaters are another great way to spruce up your patio and make it an inviting and comfortable place for you and your family to relax in. 

Add Colour
A fun and fresh way to regenerate your home in 2018 is to add a splash of colour. Hues that are trending currently are both bold and bright as well as subtle. The bold and bright colours making a splash this year are lime green, canary yellow, peacock blue, and citrus orange! These shades would look great on an accent wall. The subtle hues that are popular for 2018 include lilacs and greys, which are both very stress relieving and revitalising. 

Eco-Lighting
Another excellent way to reinvigorate your home this year is to add eco-lighting.

Not only will you reap the benefits of a smaller energy bill, but also your home will have a better value with the addition of the eco-friendly updates if you should ever want to sell.

Voice-Activated Home Features

These gadgets have become increasingly helpful as you can program them to turn on the lights when the voice phrase is spoken. As technology advances so will these devices to where you will be able to turn almost anything on and off in your home just by using voice activated commands.

Go Modern
One way to instil energy into your lifeless kitchen is with a new, sleek look. Open floor plans, as well as a clean line look to the counters and cabinets, will have everyone buzzing about your modern kitchen. While everything is hidden behind closed doors, you invest in a clean and minimalist look that is both decorative and functional. 

Install Solar
