Home Decor and Storage Trends in 2017

Use neutral colors and lines

Neutral and monochromatic color palettes and styling is popular this year. Use black, white, and grey to create a simpler look with your larger pieces. Then you can add a simple pop of color with décor that stands out.

Using these colors and clean lines makes it easier to customize throughout the year. This design motif also allows your space to flow from room to room and keeps it looking fresh and clean.

With Cook, you can build your own custom shed from scratch and choose any one of the many colors for the shingles and siding to ensure your building fits right in.

Add simplicity with upgrades

To keep costs down make small upgrades in each room to make your home feel like a luxurious retreat. Changing out ceiling fans, chandeliers, moldings, and headboards are smart investments that make a big impact in each space.

You can take the same approach and make simple updates to make your shed feel more homey and comfortable too. Here are 5 of our favorite inexpensive tips!

Bring the outdoors inside

Add succulent plants to your home + Cook Portable Warehouses

Just because the weather is keeping most of us from the garden doesn’t mean you have to hide your green thumb all winter. One of the biggest trends for 2017 is to use indoor houseplants to brighten up the space.

Plants can purify the air inside and remove any toxins. It’s an easy way to improve your health (a common new year’s resolution) for little cost and effort.

Choose plants like succulents or cactuses or any of these other 24 easy to care for houseplants. You can also turn your Cook portable building into your very own greenhouse. Find out how in this blog!

Multi-purpose storage solutions

With space at a premium, it’s very beneficial when pieces of furniture can serve two purposes, to look good and provide additional storage. A good example of this is storage benches, which can be painted or stained to blend in anywhere. You can add one in walk-in closets, home offices, pantries and foyers.

Another good example of a multi-purpose storage solution is our Handyman building, which provides double the space for two purposes in just one building. Check out the virtual tour by clicking here!
