Top 5 home improvement trends for 2017


Are you thinking that 2017 is the year you will perfect your home? Here are some inspirational ideas for what you can do to make your home look its best this year.

» Open up possibilities with bifold doors

Create a seamless flow between your home and your garden this year with a set of bifold doors. It is becoming more popular to have al fresco dining and make more use of your garden. With bifold doors, you can open up your indoor living space to the outside. Available in timber, aluminium and uPVC, bifold doors are the modern way to enter your garden. Due to their stacking configuration, you save valuable space and open up the whole room. This will open up your home to unlimited possibilities.

» Get creative with bespoke windows

If you have a room that could really benefit from an injection of light have you considered having a bespoke window? These are perfect for rooms which have an awkward space that a traditional window would not fit in. Let your personality shine through your windows. With the high quality uPVC, you will still get the same efficiency and thermal benefits, with a tailor-made design.

» Glimmering glass roofs

If your conservatory looks a little tired, you could give it the lift it needs with a new glass roof. Many older conservatories suffer from the temperature problem. They become too cold in winter and too hot in summer so become abandoned. With a new roof this issue is eradicated. A comfortable temperature is maintained throughout the year, giving you a living space you and your family can enjoy. With the option of self-cleaning and solar control glass, maintenance will not be an issue and the sun’s rays are deflected so you will never overheat. Or perhaps you would like a new glazed extension? If you want extra living space in your home, a conservatory or orangery is an elegant addition.

» Composite doors give you the complete package

The entrance to your home is one of the most important aspects so you need a door that gives a positive image of your home. With a new composite door, you will enjoy high energy efficiency as well as an attractive door with a timber effect aesthetic. With an insulating foam core, draughts will be a thing of the past. Composite doors are known for being exceptionally strong which deters thieves and they are also accredited by Secured by Design. This highlights that the locking mechanisms have been rigorously tested to ensure performance and security.

» Windows for the future

Aluminium windows are the most modern windows on the market and offer a range of benefits to the 21st century homeowners. If you want to modernise your home’s style, these are the best option. Offering attractive slim sightlines and capable of holding larger glass panes, the views they offer are second to none. Naturally thermally efficient and resistant to corrosion, these windows require very little maintenance to keep them at their best.
