Since 2017 is coming, it is the perfect time to redecorate your home and start the new year with a change. A new year means a new beginning, so why not give your living areas a fresh start as well. If you like keeping up with trends, here are some you might want to incorporate into your home décor.
When it comes to colours, 2017 will be dressed in playful, vivid and vibrant colours. The most popular are the different shades of pink, especially flesh, red and peach. Navy blue, deep blue and green are popular colours for furniture items and accessories. Dark purple and black with glossy surfaces are a match made in designer heaven. A matte finish will be popular in 2017, adding to the elegance of your home. This will put focus on the form, rather than the surface.
As experts point out, the main characteristics of furniture in 2017 will be:
- Roundedness – Round furniture is the thing of the future. Hard materials, such as marble, with curved edges will give the impression of softness and provide a tactile experience.
- Custom-made furniture – The ongoing trend that will continue into 2017 is creating your own furniture. Many companies encourage their clients to provide their own ideas and thus contribute to the process of making their own furniture. Not only are the customers allowed to customise colour and finishes, but they can also determine the shape and the size.
- Functionality – No useless items will be present in the house. Each item should be functional and useful. Multi-purpose furniture for several purposes will contribute to the stylishness and the spaciousness of your living area.
Kitchen designs in 2017 will include many special features that will make your kitchen stand out. For example, you can include a dining table with casters that will allow you to alter seating arrangement depending on the occasion. However, some classic features, such as open shelves and raw materials, are here to stay. Since minimalism will continue to be big in 2017, many hidden cabinets or pop-out kitchen items will enable a practical use of space.
Bathrooms should no longer resemble cold, sterile areas. Instead, they should have the feel of warm living spaces. By using different ornaments, graphic wallpaper, and even some furniture items that you wouldn’t usually opt for, you can create a unique bathroom in line with the 2017 trends. Another possible look to go for is the one typical of spas, which will transform your bathroom into an area for fit for relaxing. Include some plants, bring in a music player and light up some candles, and you’ll have a spa experince of your own in no time.
The experts suggest that a more eclectic interior design is a way to go, which means that you can include a variety of different styles that are to your liking. You can decorate the living room in a way that will reflect your own personality and interests, and emphasise different details. With the technological advances, you can now incorporate a fireplace into your home without having to worry about the smell and indoor air pollution. In 2017, fireplaces will be the centre of the room, replacing the TVs. If you don’t have any spare room, you can use a corner next to the windows of your living room to create an area drenched in sunlight, since sunrooms are all the rage 2017.
Individuality and uniqueness should prevail in your bedroom, as well. Find a style that works for you the most, whether it’s an elegant matte décor, or a room filled with antique furniture. Patterns are rising in popularity, so if they are to your taste, they’ll be a great choice for 2017. If you are ready, you can try out some bold ideas, such as a contemporary room wrapped in wooden walls and ceiling.
As regards the materials that 2017 is bringing, make room for black metal. This simple, but elegant material will be used in combination with wood, or glass. Some designers even offer entire furniture items made of matte black metal. Natural materials typically used outside will find their way in, so don’t hesitate to use decorative concrete to create an interesting, unique and functional living area.
Waiting for the new year is exciting, and we all like entering it with a change. Instead of buying a new phone that will be outdated in only a couple of months, why not redecorate your home and enjoy it for a longer than that.
