3 Home Upgrades To Consider in 2020
In a few short weeks, we’ll see the start of a new decade. Time certainly flies, and in that time, a lot has changed. Trends come and go, and for our homes, it could be the time to start thinking about essential upgrades for the coming year. Whether you have an older property or new build, making your home work for your current lifestyle is vital. A house should be somewhere we feel comfortable, secure and happy, and if it’s not sharing these vibes with you, it could be time for a home upgrade.
Some areas in your property might need more urgent attention than others. However, if you’re planning a move in 2020, you’ll also have to consider what could increase the value of your home. So, to give you some inspiration on what you could focus on in 2020, check out our handy tips.
Replace your kitchen
The kitchen is often described as the heart of the home. It’s here you gossip with friends over coffee, make tasty dishes (shoutout to enchiladas for being my new food obsession) for the family and get everyone ready for the day ahead. A kitchen done right can also make you feel refreshed and bring new life to your home. If your current kitchen theme isn’t quite hitting the mark, it could be time for an upgrade. It’s said that this room can help increase the value of your home too, so it’s a win-win all round if you’re thinking of a home upgrade in the new year.

Update the bathroom
Bathrooms are another room we use a lot. It’s also the place where moisture build-up can start to affect the appearance and feel of the space. Having a fresh and clean bathroom is often a top priority for many people, so it could be time for an upgrade. Bathroom renovation can be a significant investment, but if you’re on a budget, there’s plenty of options to update this space. Looking at tiling options, repainting and replacing bathroom furniture can freshen the place up. Plus, thinking about accessories and houseplants is also an affordable way to add interest to the room.
The garden is possibly one of the last places that people think about when it comes to upgrading, especially if you don’t have green fingers. However, it’s a spot that gives you instant curb appeal at the front and offers a great entertaining space at the back. You don’t have to go all-out for landscaping for a great effect, but thinking about how the area works for you and what you want out of it will shape the type of design you could achieve.
Whatever you budget, there are a host of options that could see you transform your property in 2020. Just make a list of your priorities and start making your way through it to bring your home fully refreshed into the new decade.
