New Year, New Room: 5 ways to update your home in 2022

Brought to you by AIB

It’s time to make your house the home of your dreams.

We’ve all got at least one area of our home that could do with improving, but finding the time and all-important funding can make it seem like an impossible task.

Whether your home is in need of a slight sprucing up or a complete overhaul, 2022 is the year to get things done and an AIB will help you find your footing.

You can find all the information you need to borrow confidently at a repayment schedule that suits you with the help of the AIB loan calculator with either an AIB Personal Loan, or their Green Personal Loan designed to help you make some sustainable changes.

Easily understandable and accessible to all, you could get approval on loans without even having to leave the house! Just head to the AIB App and you can get the ball rolling sooner than you thought.

If you need some inspiration on how you can improve your home in 2022, here are some suggestions…

Go green!

We are all becoming more conscious of our homes' environmental impact, and keeping our carbon footprint as small as possible is a top priority. If you want to be part of the change you want to see in the world, you can make sustainable choices that will reduce emissions and help in the fight against climate change. From installing solar panels to insulating walls, floors and replacing old boilers, an AIB Green Personal Loan will make it possible for less.


Transform your spare room

Has your guest room become something of a dumping ground? Well, there’s no time like the present to create the space you've been dreaming of. You could take simple steps to revive the room, such as getting rid of excess clutter, painting the walls and having new light fixtures fitted, or you could start from scratch. Just think of the possibilities? New flooring and furniture would breathe new life into a spare bedroom, but the options are endless. A home gym, a walk-in wardrobe, a cosy home cinema? The world is your oyster.

Perfect your work from home space

If you’ve been avoiding making your work from home space that little bit more permanent, now's a good time to make some changes. Putting energy into creating an at-home office space that suits your needs is essential. Whether it’s putting up shelves or investing in a second screen, having a designated space for your desk will make life a lot easier. Think outside the box, add some photos or posters that will help get your creative juices flowing throughout the day and make sure you've got all the tools necessary to avoid back and neck pain - your posture will thank you for it!

Switch up your aesthetic with brand new flooring

If you want to start your home improvement journey from the ground up, revamping your flooring is the natural place to start! If you’ve got old dusty carpets, it might be time to swap them out for some sleek and sophisticated hardwood flooring. A rich, dark walnut in the corridor or a bright oak finish in the living area, you could even add a splash of colour with a patterned rug or stylist doormat.

Renovate the kitchen

The heart of any home, we spend far too much time in the kitchen for it not to perfectly fit our needs. We've all got an image of our dream kitchen in our minds, so why not make it a reality? Whether it’s a surface face lift that will allow you to replace the tiles, spruce up the cabinets and rearrange the pantry, or you want to gut the whole space and start from square one, you can make the area work for you.
