Loft Conversions in Reading | House & Kitchen Extensions

The Latest Interior Design Trends

When it comes to large-scale home development projects like house extensions and loft conversions, most homeowners have long-held design ideas. At MW Carpentry Ltd, our team of carpenters and builders strive to make these dream projects a reality. From kitchen extensions to new builds, we have a proven track record for delivering outstanding results for clients across Reading.

When you picture your dream extension, loft conversion or new build, we feel confident in presuming you focus on the interior design and decoration rather than the structural elements. After all, it’s the internal space that delivers the wow-factor.

As such, it’s important to have some flexibility when it comes to design and decoration. For example, what you like now might fall out of fashion in a few years. It always pays to track what’s popular while also staying true to your own tastes.

Below, we have looked at some of the current trends influencing projects like kitchen extensions, loft conversions, house extensions and new builds, not just in Reading but across the UK. As time-served carpenters and builders, we can adapt our service to meet any specification.

Current Home Development Design Trends

House Extensions

Loft Conversions

Like kitchen extensions, house extensions and new builds, everything within your converted loft will look and feel new. This isn’t a problem, of course. However, if you own a period property in the Reading area, you may want to create a stronger connection to the rest of the house.

For older homes, there’s a trend for conjuring character inside loft conversions. For example, you can repurpose original features within the new room. A great example is internal doors. You can fit these on to cupboards and wardrobes or bathroom doorways.

In addition, our carpenters and builders are working on designs that embrace unique architectural features with increasing regularity. Be it wooden beams, chimney breasts or quirky windows, homeowners are starting to appreciate the character these features create. As such, we are showing them off, not hiding them.

New Builds

As opposed to kitchen extensions, loft conversions and house extensions, a new build provides a unique opportunity to design an entire home from scratch. Because trends change from one room to the next, we can’t cover them all here.

However, we have listed below a handful of popular trends influencing our new builds in and around Reading.

  • Use large pieces of art as a foundation for a wider colour palette
  • Utilise eye-catching rugs to create interesting floors
  • Exploit spaces in the walls for innovative storage solutions
  • Work with carpenters and builders to maximise natural light
  • Balance staircase intrusiveness by adding bespoke storage beneath it
  • Use light, neutral paint on the walls for easier décor changes in the future
