Another new year is upon us, which means it’s time to take another look at the home and interior design trends that are likely to feature heavily this year. If you want your home to look its best, and to impress your guests, then these are the styles that you most need to pay attention to. As always, you don’t need to completely renovate your home to take advantage of these styles, sometimes the smallest adjustments can make the biggest difference.
Who wouldn’t love a bathroom that resembles the kind of spas you find in the most upmarket hotels? This might seem like something which few people can reasonably achieve, but spa-style bathrooms are falling in price. Combine this with a much-increased rate of uptake and it’s not hard to see why more people are beginning to view a spa bathroom as something that they can realistically add to their homes. Spa bathrooms aren’t just much more comfortable and luxurious; they are also spacious and much better for general relaxation.
The materials that a person’s furniture is made from used to tell you a great deal about their status and economic class. Fortunately (for most of us), this is no longer the case. In the modern world, there are very few materials which the average person can’t afford. As a result, we have seen different combinations of materials being put together in ways that they would never have before. When certain materials were strictly the purview of the rich and famous, they would generally only be found being used, in particular, more traditional ways.
Now that anyone has access to the materials they desire, we can expect to see much more experimentation with combining different textures and colours in order to create never before seen effects.
Offices in the Home
More people than ever before are now performing their jobs remotely, from the comfort of their own homes. As our relationship with jobs changes and our personal and professional lives continue to intertwine and overlap in new ways, it is not uncommon to see space in the home given over to an office. The modern home office consists of more than a room with a computer in it, it is a well designed and thought out space, which is designed to allow the user to clear their mind and truly engage with their work. The type of furniture seen in a home office has also changed. It is no longer simply a desk and chair. Have a look at the range of office furniture available from ROF for an idea of the kind of modern office furniture which is increasingly making its way into the home.
The art of home design has come a long way in the last decade. The relentless march of technology has impacted on just about every aspect of our lives. It has also had a significant effect on the nature of manufacturing. Now that such a wide range of materials and design techniques, which were once difficult to obtain and rarely seen, are trivially easy to bring into the home, home design is becoming more varied and accessible to everyone.
