Trends in residential interior design can change as often as the season. In fact, this is one of the reasons why homeowners prefer not to follow the trend and choose classic designs for their homes instead. However, if you are browsing home designs in Sydney looking for ideas for your new home, trends are a wonderful place to draw inspiration from. Hoot Homes is a Sydney home builder and the youngest member of the Wisdom Properties Group with over 20 years experience in building, modern, cutting edge home designs with luxury inclusions. Unlike Wisdom Homes, Hoot offers affordable homes with modern designs. To us, an affordable home doesn’t need to compromise on style, with many on trend and timeless materials and colour palettes incorporated into our homes. Here are the top 3 trends circling the interior design world right now:
2019 is all about bold contrast and drama, and what better way to create a sense of drama in your interior than with black details. Black is a mesmerizing shade that can blend into the background, as well as command attention at the same time. It won’t be surprising to see matte black abundantly in homes in the form of anything from homeware and furniture to the walls of a room. Lighting, home decor and sideboards are all great places to introduce black into your interior without being too overwhelming. Because black is a classic shade that goes well with almost everything, this is a trend that will likely be around for a long time, making it a worthwhile investment.
Homeowners with small spaces benefit from the minimalist interior trend, as it helps free up space at home and makes their interior look and feels much larger than it actually is. The minimalist trend led to a demand for a sense of openness in the whole house, especially in areas that are often crowded like the kitchen. Gone are the upper cabinets that clutter your kitchen’s ceiling; instead; items are strategically placed in dual-purpose storage spaces to save space. Because of the less crowded design, you can freely use bold colours in your kitchen through the form of appliances, cabinetry or focal walls to add depth and an eye-catching feature to the space.
The use of natural materials in interiors began in 2018, but in 2019, the trend is expected to grow fully. Bathrooms made entirely in stone give off the feel of ultimate luxury and mimic the atmosphere in spas and saunas. This is a great design option for homeowners that wish to have their own private oasis at home to relax and unwind after a long day. To avoid dullness, mix and match different kinds of stones to achieve a luxury finish without monotony.
Natural fabrics in rugs, upholstered furniture and tapestries are also a big hit for this year. This trend speaks volumes about the desires of individuals to escape the crazy modern life in the city and to create a peaceful retreat at home. The best part about this trend is that there are so many themes you can draw inspiration from such as Hamptons, boho, and French country.
