New Home Trends for 2012

Sun, 08 Jan 2012 by Polycorp

A new year brings new ways to freshen up the look of your home.  Polycorp suggests these five new home trends for 2012:

Express yourself by transforming the flex space of your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Add a bright color to accentuate the walls, decorate it with vintage or chic furniture, or your favorite trinkets and cool lighting fixtures that represent you.

Large pieces of artwork are in for 2012.  Highlight a room in your home with a painting, family portrait or drawing.

Compared to years past, large and open spaces are in versus formal living and dining rooms.  A new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia at Polycorp’s Ravenscraig community will feature the open concept with the kitchen, great room and dining room open to each other.  These spaces create a much more natural environment for socializing without the inefficiency of formal living and dining rooms which are rarely used.

Though Jacuzzi tubs are still popular, showers are making a come back.  Larger showerheads, steam showers and body jets are in for 2012, so you can feel like you’re at a spa in your own home.

Another trend making a comeback is wallpaper which will look especially good in larger rooms like your bedroom or great room.

Hopefully with these new home trends your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia will look hot with what’s in for 2012.
