Looking to spiff up your home design with a few new renovations, but not sure where to start?
We’ve collated a few of the top trending home features on the market in 2017 to help you out!
Adding Technology to Your Home
As we delve further into the technological future, we are discovering more sophisticated and convenient ways of living.
MyLights is the latest (and might we say, greatest) invention in the home renovations sphere at the moment. Similarly to MyAir, the lights are controlled through a smartphone app that allows homeowners to switch their lights on and off at their disposal, even when not at home!

The Comeback of Cork
Yep, you heard it here first – cork is making its way back into the home design scene. From feature walls to furniture (chairs, desks, coffee tables), to light fittings, cork is a multi-faceted material that mixes style with sustainability.
A bonus feature is that it also works to absorb noises. Save your conversations or footsteps from annoyingly echoing throughout the whole house by adding one or two cork walls.
Back to Nature
In the technological era we live, we are constantly surrounded by electronics and telecommunications of some sort. Adding some natural features to your home can transform your way of thinking and help you feel relaxed and at ease.
Whether it be a bookcase designed from raw timber, a green wall or a bunch of plants and succulents, one or two small natural elements will make a huge difference.
Repurposed / Recycled / Upcycled
“Out with the old and in with the new”? Not anymore! One of the biggest growing trends of 2016 has been the art of repurposing. Doing up an old piece of furniture or recycling old sheets into curtains gives your home a unique feel. Not to mention it saves you money on buying new things!
Spacey Metals and Jewel Tones
Pastels and block colours were so last year – 2017 is the year of metallics and jewels! Think modernised chandeliers, jewelled mirrors and furnishings made from sharp and shiny silver and copper colours.
