We’re barely a month into the New Year, so we know many people may be wondering about what interior design trends 2018 holds, as they think about how to make the most of their living space.

We have a feeling these could be big in the months ahead:

• Earthy, bold tones

Think saffron, emerald green and rich rust shades – or perhaps a deep petrol blue. You can do this by adding some great accessories to your conservatory or elsewhere in the shape of soft furnishings such as cushions, blinds or curtains, or perhaps other accessories like pictures, vases or other ornaments. This follows years of domination from grey, neutral tones.

• Terrific terrazzo

This retro trend could be making a comeback! Throughout 2017, marble was extremely popular, but now it may have met its match in this rival. This mixture of marble and polished cement or granite chippings is usually polished to perfection to give it a shiny, smooth finish. It’s versatile to suit your interior scheme however minimalist (or otherwise) it is, and works with a wide range of patterns and colours. Use it as flooring, on walls or even as a kitchen worktop.

• Raw natural materials

This started in 2017, and we think it’s one that’s likely to increase in popularity this year. Think concrete pots and planters, untreated plywood or Oriented Strand Board (OSB). There are many ways to incorporate these raw materials into your home whatever your budget, whether you’re fitting new flooring, updating the outside of your home or adding some fresh finishing touches.

Don’t be afraid to mix textures and styles!

We hope these ideas inspire you. In Britain, we spend nearly £30bn a year on improving our homes, according to the Office for National Statistics. And the start of a fresh 12 months always heralds a flurry of activity. After all, with Christmas and New Year celebrations now all but forgotten, it’s a great time to re-evaluate your property.

Don’t forget about how improving can add value to your home, as well. The National Association of Estate Agents told the Telegraph that improvements which are integrated parts of the structure, and which improve quality of life all year round, such as conservatories, are most likely to enhance a property’s value.

Whether you’re looking for a beautifully spacious new conservatory or double glazing windows, we’ll have the perfect product for your property, and can help to keep your home as warm and as secure as possible.
