Top Home Improvement Trends for 2023

Published 30th May 2023 by Sternfenster Categories: Updates

More and more people are spending a large chunk of their time at home, especially since the pandemic. When you spend a lot of time in one place, you want it to be a comfortable and attractive space. If you are a homeowner thinking about improving your property but are not sure where to start, the experts at Sternfenster have put together this useful guide of the top home improvement trends that are taking the UK by storm.

Home Renovations That Boost Energy Efficiency 

The UK is currently in the midst of a cost of living crisis, and we are seeing many homeowners looking for home improvements that can lower their energy bills. Heat can escape through windows and doors, and if your home is always cold, it is worth investing in double glazing. 

Energy efficient double glazing will trap warm air inside and stop cold draughts from entering your property. When you have windows that provide effective heat retention, you will be less likely to rely on the central heating for warmth. To avoid soaring energy costs, energy efficient windows and doors are becoming increasingly popular. 

We offer several window and door designs that will enhance the appearance of your home and boost energy efficiency. With our designs, you will receive incredible heat retention while simultaneously helping the planet by reducing your property’s carbon footprint.

Increasing Natural Light Inside The Home 

Natural light never goes out of style, and in 2023, renovators continue to find ways to bring as much sunshine into their homes as possible. Patio doors and French doors can flood your living space with natural light without comprising the temperature of your home. 

Attractive Deceuninck French doors have a classic continental look and welcome streams of natural light into your home. Contemporary uPVC patio doors can enhance the appearance of your home, and they are also a popular choice in 2023 – thanks to the large glass panels allowing sunbeams to brighten up indoor spaces.

Seamlessly Connecting Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Blending interior and exterior spaces is a home improvement trend that has been growing in popularity over recent years. One of our favourite ways to seamlessly connect a home and its garden space is to install aluminium bifold doors. 

Unlike a patio or French door, aluminium bifold doors fold open in a concertina fashion, providing homeowners with completely uninterrupted views of their garden and surroundings. Our aluminium bifold doors are available in a wide range of configurations. With these folding doors installed, your living space will feel larger, lighter and more inviting.

Creating a Home Office Space

Following the pandemic in 2020, more people than ever before are working remotely or splitting their time in the office and at home. It can be hard to be productive when sitting at a messy kitchen table or in a room with bad lighting. Creating a separate work environment can help keep you focused and your work life separate. 

A full home extension or conservatory isn’t an option for everyone, but there are many affordable and popular ways to transform an existing room into a home office. On TikTok and Pinterest, there are many trending videos and boards that can help you re-envision an existing space. This includes upcycling furniture, decorating your property with house plants, and designing a statement wall with bold bursts of colour. These touches can really create a stylish and comfortable space for you to work in.
