The New Year is just around the corner, and your house is a good place to start something new. Are you interested in knowing about some home trends? Even if you are not thinking about a complete makeover, start thinking about simpler options, and start planning now. Here are some ideas from americanhomecontractors.com.
Grow your own produce indoors.
Indoor gardening may not be the first thing that comes to mind in a home upgrade. If you have not heard of it, it’s time to explore the idea, especially if you enjoy cooking. Plus, having fresh produce at arm’s length makes for a healthier lifestyle.
If you live in a place where it is difficult to maintain a small garden throughout the year, then you can study available options for high-tech indoor gardening. You may incorporate zero waste principles by using food waste and other organic wastes as garden fertilizer.
An indoor garden in the kitchen or even a small outdoor plot right outside the door will influence the way you cook and eat. You will be raising a healthier family as well. The choice to eat more fruits and vegetables as well as using more fresh herbs are convenient and better options.
Invest in energy-efficient features.
If you have already found financing support for your home renovation project, how about planning to spend most of it on features for improving energy efficiency? For instance, consider fiberglass attic insulation, which might cost you about $2,000. You get value for your money because your home utility bills will decrease. The future looks bright as well if you wish to sell the house eventually.
Home renovation and improvement trends this year are very likely to be carried over to 2018. Consider an indoor garden and investments to boost energy efficiency.
