Recap Of 2017 Home Improvement Trends And What We Think Is Coming For 2018

2017 has, without a doubt, been a year full of weird and wonderful trends; Unicorns, VR Technology and Beard. However, trends don’t miss the home improvement industry. Here are the top trends from 2017, and our predictions for 2018.

Black Flush Casement Windows

A 2017 Round Up

In 2017, we saw a spike of popularity in the colour grey, across all home improvements. This could have been due to the rise of homeowners wanting modern and contemporary property designs.

Chartwell Green has also been a hugely popular colour for homeowners when buying doors. Eden’s a huge range of replacement doors including UPVC, Composite, Timber, French, Patio & Bi-Folding Doors, all with the option of choosing your colour.

Finally, another trend we observed, was the increase in popularity of the orangery over the conservatory. This is because homeowners are looking for alternative options to a traditional conservatory. At Eden, our orangeries feature immaculate glazing and solid brick walls. They are the perfect choice for your home.


Our 2018 Trend Predictions

As 2017 draws to a close, we predict that there will be a continued popularity of orangeries due to their large glazed areas, that soak up light and create a sense of space.

As well as this, we think that there will be an increase in homeowners wanting their windows and doors to be coloured. This is because of a shift in trends with more and more people diversifying from traditional windows, and going for more contemporary designs, instead.

A colour that we think is going to be popular, is Ultra Violet as it was recently named Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year’ for 2018. We have a window and door colour Rich Aubergine – which matches this colour almost perfectly, we believe this will be a common colour in 2018 for door fronts.

Finally, we think Skylights are going to become the next big thing, in the home improvement industry. A Skylight from Eden will flood your home with natural sunlight and help your living space come alive. Eden Windows is a permitted installer of the Atlas Roof and an Ultraframe Ultra Installer.
