The Interior Design industry is always evolving. New trends arise all the time in lifestyles, colors, materials… the list goes on and on. Here are just a few of the things you can expect to see a lot more of in the coming year.
Formal Dining Rooms
While many families opt to eat in the kitchen and convert the dining room into a room they may need more often (such as an office or media room), those who spend a lot of time entertaining have held onto their dining rooms. A designated space for gathering for special meals is important and social butterflies are pouring attention into these rooms!
Kitchen Islands have always been a great way to provide additional work space, but recently they’ve taken on so much more responsibility than that. Adding prep sinks, seating and additional – often deep – storage turns the island into a central feature in modern kitchens.
Tech-Free Living Rooms
With so much screen time in our daily lives, homeowners are looking for a break from technology when they can catch up with their families, read a book or just relax without the distractions technology create. Find a new home for your television and keep the living area alive with family time.
Fireplaces are not a new idea, but new advances help you have all the warmth and ambiance without the hassle of a traditional wood-burning fireplace. Bonus point: Fireplaces make a great focal point in place of a TV screen in your Tech-Free Living Room!
Statement Mirrors in Bathrooms
Say goodbye to your medicine cabinet and say hello to a Statement Mirror! Thick wood frames, gilded gold beauties, back-lit modern marvels… all great ways to add a little style to that bathroom.
