5 Interior Design Trends for 2016

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!

Workhorse Islands

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

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!
