Is there a better time to get informed about the upcoming trends that in the first quarter of the year? Trends change rapidly and it’s very hard to keep up with them, which is why we have taken it upon ourselves to put together a list of the most prominent interior design trends that await us this year. If you’re thinking about remodelling and upgrading your home, and are looking for inspiration, you’ve come to the right place.
It doesn’t matter if you live in a small apartment and you need furniture that will allow you to save some space, or you just want to own furniture that can do more, multifunctional furniture is a great idea. It allows you to keep your home clutter-free even if your living space is small. A mirror with hidden shelves, an armchair with a side table, an ottoman with a hidden compartment… This year, even people who have big and spacious homes will not be able to resist some of these amazing multifunctional pieces, especially since the price of this type of furniture is lower than it used to be before.
Fifty Shades of Pink
This year, we’ll be seeing different shades of pink everywhere: on furniture, walls, and cabinets alike! The flowery hue is incredibly popular at the moment and it looks like it will not lose any of its popularity in the following seasons either. The best thing is that isn’t a particular shade and hue that’s popular, but people are free to choose whichever they like. If your walls have been white, it’s going to be easy to paint them pink, but if you had some other colour walls instead, you might need professional help. You should be thorough in preparations of the surfaces you want to paint, state professionals from BJC Painting. Not only will that mean that the colour will look good on walls, but it also means that it will last much longer.
Hidden Drawers and Open Shelves
Kitchen design is going to see some extremes this year: not only are people falling head-over-heels for hidden drawers and inconspicuous cabinets, but open shelves are proving to be a major hit as well. Even though this might sound too strange at first, the idea is to hide those less stylish pieces in your kitchen and display the ones you’re proud of. This is why you can hide all those jars and bottles with oils and spices, and proudly show off your mug collection and colourful kitchen rags. On the other hand, you can even try replacing the upper cabinets in your kitchen with glass, metal or wood shelving and get the look that many hotels and retail spaces have.
We will see the rise of interesting materials and textures in interior design, but the emphasis will be on the ones that evoke the feeling of elegance and luxury. Fortunately, each year we witness the remarkable progress that allows us to use familiar materials in a new way, and today we even have tables made of tempered glass that’s feather-light. Leather has always been a symbol of sophistication and luxury, but with more people embracing cruelty-free philosophy and the view of life, faux and vegan leather are slowly taking over.
Even if you manage to keep an eye on ever-changing interior design trends, you will have a hard time keeping up with them. This is the reason why you should think carefully which trends you wish to embrace and incorporate into your home, otherwise, you risk creating and decorating a space with items and colours that don’t complement each other, but rather clash.
