Looking for some home improvement ideas and inspiration in the new year, as you plan out your next project? I’ve put together a short guide with five different home and garden ideas that you might want to try in 2022, including energy-conscious solar panelling, smart tech upgrades, and even the benefits of artificial lawns over traditional gardens. Read on to get started.

Switching to Artificial Grass

Keeping and maintaining a garden all year round can be a difficult task, and many working people simply don’t have the time to allocate to gardening regularly. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have an impressive, inviting outdoor space to unwind and relax in – something particularly important in 2022 when people are spending increasing amounts of time outdoors.

Rising in popularity throughout the UK, artificial grass is a modern, easy garden solution for those wanting that ‘freshly-cut’ grass look, at all times. Leading UK supplier Grass Warehouse state that fake grass rolls remove the need for pesticides and chemicals, and also come in numerous pet-friendly varieties – ideal for those sick of cleaning up after their pet’s muddy paws coming in and out of the home after play.

Solar Panelling

Environmentally conscious changes and home improvements are of course popular in 2022. If you have the option and can afford the initial investment, installing solar panelling onto your property can not only provide clean, green energy to your home, but can also be a great way of saving money on electricity bills in the long term.

Smart Home Technology

If you’re looking to make your home feel more modern and forward-thinking as you head into the new year, upgrading to smart home technology can be a great place to start. Better still, it doesn’t have to be an expensive move.  The Amazon Echo smart speaker device gives you everything you need to get started with voice automation, alarms, notifications and more.

It’s estimated that a huge percentage of homes around the country will already have some sort of smart device. If you already have one of these devices, perhaps think about some of the other appliances that you might be able to connect to it, in order to get your home running like a well-oiled machine.

Plants and Greenery

Investing in some potted plants and greenery for different rooms can be a quick and easy way to freshen up a space and breathe a bit more life into it. Aside from the visual benefits, plant life can also have positive health implications, such as improving air quality and aiding concentration.

The Perfect Home Office

Going to be working from home a lot more this year? It might be worth taking a look at your home office space, and seeing if there is anything you can upgrade. Having a clear, good-sized desk space will help you to stay organised, and you should also make sure you have a good quality office chair to prevent back pain or posture issues in the long term.
