What better way to welcome 2016 and embrace the change than your home makeover?
Here are some of the top trends to adopt this year.
Family time-boosting living rooms
Oh, yes…It’s elegantly possible! The hot trend this year is the digital-free living rooms where gadgets are replaced with small plants, books and pillows. A personal sanctuary for meaningful conversations and a break away from the connected world.
Kitchens, the star of trends
Let’s start with pastel ovens and shiny silver appliances, so NOT happening! 2016 is the era of the sleek black stainless steel appliances. Kitchens have no longer a “unified predictable look”, it’s now all about mixing a variety of opposing styles with various material, finishes and colors. It’s the year of “texture-on-texture” design.
And the trendiest one is connected with the rest of the house through an integrated kitchen-living room space. And better yet that “barely there”, with a more open kitchen where spatial identifiers no longer exist.
Attention! LED light tape strips below, above and inside cabinets are the new trendsetter.
Nowadays, we spend a lot of time in the bathroom. Well, we would if it’s no longer more like a hospital lavatory. It’s a living space with the graphic wallpaper, furniture-like pieces and homey items. The bathroom is a part of your home, so shouldn’t feel like it? It can also be a themed-bathroom, unleash your imagination.
Fireplaces, whether real or fake
Functioning or not, fireplaces add a certain touch of warmth to your home. It’s increasingly becoming the living room center piece, rather than the television. And with technology on your side, you can have that warmth without the smell or the hassle of a traditional one.
The outdoors is no longer out
Adding that outdoor touch indoor seems hot this year. Bringing nature to the interior with plant life inspired items and outdoor fabrics inside are 2 major trends. Woven textures, intricate and graphic looks, trendy designs … Indoor-outdoor fabric is made of synthetic fibers, such as acrylic and polyolefin.
And the best part is the durability of these fabrics that makes them the perfect choice for heavy duty living and dining rooms furniture.
