The home is the main setting of our lives. Since 2020, we spend 62% of our waking time at home — up 12% since before the pandemic. Obviously, work from home also increased considerably, as did education.
With so much time spent in the house, it may be time to think about a redesign. Every corner of our property composes the main settings of our lives: where we play, work, study, and sleep.
Popular trends of the last decade are falling away like poorly applied paint. With open floor plans, all-white everything, and boucle amongst the many styles that have been left by the wayside, here are The 12 Top Trends In Home Redesign:
Use whatever materials you want to add intrigue to a room. Without texture, spaces feel flat. No longer should anyone have to stare at blank, white walls. Feel free to use depth and dimension, resulting in vibrancy and warmth. Mixing material and layering will prove beneficial. Additionally, texture can be used to create accents throughout the overall room.
Redesign tip: Tactile objects can include fabrics, woods, and stone.
Shelved collections showcase treasures or books that tell the story of the individual that reads them. These literary retreats can bolster a space with comfort, personality, and uniqueness. An aesthetic that is immediately colorful and cozy, this elegant focal point boasts the stylishness of a fireplace. Put your favorite values on display, or simply organize spines in a way that matches your study room’s design.
Redesign tip: Yes, they exist. Explore hidden room bookcase doors here.
Bland and bare walls are so yesterday. Light up any interior with LED signage, lamps, wall art, or just general lighting. Anything that comes in a neon tube should be put up!
An expression of American Art Deco, neon lights moved away from advertising design, evolving into a creative medium in its own right. Just avoid turning your entire living space into a nightclub!
Redesign tip: Pick a color complementary to the flooring and accent scheme.
One of the few good things about intermittent quarantine periods: most of us now have a healthy obsession with plants. Having a piece of the great outdoors — potted with soil — made the shelter-at-home period a little more bearable.
The connection with nature continues, transforming the interior into the exterior. Outside of succulents, search for nature-inspired surfaces and objects that resemble natural textures. These could includes crystals, marbles, and other organic materials.
Redesign tip: Muted palettes are always essential for material-driven applications.
Straight lines, boxy edges, and canvas are now in the donation pile. Curved mirrors, circular furniture, and unorthodox art frames create a casual vibe that is far from the drab office space furnishings.
Curves have the ability to soften a room, discouraging the hard and aggressive angles that traditional tables and shelving exhibit.
Redesign tip: Get cozy by purchasing designed decorations with soothing colors.
Rustic has been tossed away in yesterday’s trash, replaced by artisan hype. This design celebrates natural patterns, hues, and organic materials — showcasing the imperfections of interior organization.
These creations are sustainable and crafted by hand.
Redesign tip: Trades shows guarantee handmade and avoid mass-produced goods.
With remote work taking center stage, rooms doubling for other purposes is the most efficient way to organize a house. Most popular are guest rooms fitted with desks; the game room is now repurposed for double duty. These rooms often include
Redesign tip: Line dining room walls with either wine storage or books, providing an adequate background for any remote, virtual meeting.
Some people may say that this design doesn’t exist. We aren’t some people. A stylistic mash-up blending both traditional and contemporary, transitional couples the old with the new to achieve a comfortable interior. Usually, these rooms are outfitted with soft lines, coupled with modern pieces. Textures or tones are present to present contrast.
Redesign tip: Accent chairs from different eras are probably the easiest way to make your transitional space cohesive.
This blog may or may not have been written on an electric standing desk. Design continues to evolve with the technology. Additions include those for comfort (i.e. learning thermostats, keyless door locks, and LED cameras), sustenance (i.e. smart refrigerators, ovens, and coffee makers), and general decor (smart surfaces, medical diagnostic systems, and lighting).
Redesign tip: For those that want to impress guests, everything is voice-powered now.
You can’t hang NFT’s… yet. In the meantime, 3D pieces are the standard. Instead of frames that hold a flat print, anything can be hung — in particular, wall paneling with three-dimensional surface patterns and rectangular shapes. Additionally, these displays can double as soundproofing and insulation, giving your room a uniform and individualistic appearance.
Redesign tip: There are infinite wall sculptures that can be purchased, including several that are handmade. This is an easy way to tap into another popular redesign: up-and-coming artwork.
Blame Marie Kondo and the KonMari method for Minimalism’s staying power. Feel free to dump a ton of your belongings, especially if you haven’t touched them in several months. In their vacant place, put a whole lot… of nothing. This is clutter-free living at its finest, subtracting the necessary excess to keep things simple.
Redesign tip: An exercise in restraint, empty spaces are a focal point that serves as an important element of this style. Anything essential will find a spot on shelving or the wall.
