The new year is quickly approaching and with the turning of the page often comes some goal planning. Are there some changes to your home you wish to make? Maybe it just needs a facelift, or perhaps it’s time for a full overhaul. Not sure where to start? Here’s what the experts are predicting for trends in the home for the upcoming year.
There is a growing appreciation for nature and its calming influence on our lives. Biophilic design incorporates natural elements into the interior space. Think large indoor plants, natural wood finishes, and earthy colour palettes that bring the outdoors inside.
Minimalism has had its moment in the spotlight, and maximalism is making a comeback. Interiors that are bold, eclectic, and vibrant are becoming popular again. Maximalism encourages mixing and matching, consider rich, saturated colours, intricate patterns, and a variety of textures.
Flexible and Multi-functional Spaces
With changes to how many people work, homes have had to adapt as remote work and flexible schedules became more common. Creating multifunctional spaces that, depending on your needs, can serve as offices, gyms, or relaxation areas. Convertible furniture and modular designs are important to achieving this level of flexibility and multi-function.
Homeowners are looking for one-of-a-kind pieces that express their personal story and tastes. Custom furniture, handcrafted decor, and personalized art is in high demand. People are looking to create environments that reflect their unique tastes and preferences.
Sustainable Materials and Eco-Friendly
Furniture that has been recycled or up-cycled, low-volatile organic compound paints, and energy-efficient lighting will be prominent. Homeowners are increasingly looking for furniture and home decor made from reclaimed materials and renewable resources.
Fast and never-ending technological advancements have transformed the way we live. Smart homes are becoming increasingly popular, with integrated technology seamlessly blending into the decor - voice-controlled lighting, automated window treatments, and AI-powered home assistants are becoming standard features.
Textures add depth and visual interest to a space, creating a sensory experience - think tactile materials like plush velvet, rough stone, and smooth metal.
What About Colour?
Believe it or not – experts predict Indigo as the colour you’ll see more of in 2024. It is rich and serene, indigo has always been popular with interior designers – with its moody nature and how it suits all seasons, you can go all in or use it for accents.
Think about what you love, what makes you feel at home, what is cozy and reflects YOU. You can go all in or make small changes over time. Be thoughtful and think about things that are long lasting. It’s time to love where you live in 2024!
