Homeowners looking to carry out a new DIY project in the new year may well have been helped by the Orlando Sentinel, which offered some of the trends could become big in British homes in 2010.
According to the publication, Pittsburgh Paints has said to expect splashes of exotic bright and classic neutral colours around properties in the new year, including deep grey-browns and blues, as well as spicy oranges.
In addition, home improvers will start considering energy efficiency more, the NWC Construction’s Nathan Cross told the newspaper, especially with budgeting becoming more of a priority.
Furthermore, minor property upgrades will stay popular, it was revealed, after Realtors Report’s annual Remodelling Cost vs Value Report showed that fitting a wood deck, attic-bedrooms and installing a steel entry-door replacement appealed to DIYers throughout 2009.
Editor of Build It magazine Duncan Hayes recently stated that more Brits who own houses will be expected to carry out home improvement projects in the near future and also perhaps read up and learn new renovation skills in the meantime.
