Spruce up your home in time for next year and give it the attention it deserves. Transform your current home into a brand new abode to make it feel good as new – if not better!
When it comes to upgrading your property, it’s never too early to start.
Here are the top five interior design trends for 2016.
1. IN with the OUT
The outdoors are moving into homes in 2016 as more and more residential properties are experimenting with different ways to bring nature into their homes. Home owners, decorators, buyers, etc. can be expected to shop for furniture suitable for use indoors and outdoors. Wall decorations and home accessories are also going to feature nature-inspired themes.
Sustainability is not just a trend – it’s here to stay. In 2016, more homeowners and property builders will embrace sustainable building, living, and decorating by recycling, repurposing, and reusing various items in and out the home. Sustainability will also play a huge factor in the purchases consumers will make in the coming year.
3. Local artisan goods.
Embracing the artisan trend means getting inspired by local finds, something more people are expected to get into next year. Crochet, tassels, basketry, and weaving will create a good mix when combined with vintage pieces around the house. Shoppers will be flocking to buy locally-made and globally-sourced goods for their homes.
4. Mixed metals
Homeowners are going retro with this hot trend in interior design for next year. The combination of metal and metallic finishes is currently a big hit, and this is expected to spill over in 2016. For a nice throwback to the 50s and 70s, get ready to shop for some retro bling.
5. Geometric patterns.
More consumers will drift towards geometric patterns when it comes to tile purchases, countertops, floors, and other elements of the home. 2016 will be all about patterns that feature fluid movement, also known as “fluid geometry.”
