Top five home interior trends

Are you planning to redecorate in 2016? If you have moved into a new home or simply want a new look for your current home, we have the top five home interior trends.

Before redecorating it’s important to begin with a declutter. This allows you to get rid of items that are making your home look cluttered and messy. If you don’t want to throw out things like clothes, furniture, or other items, why not consider putting them in storage?

No matter your level of design skills and whether you are an expert or this is your first time, we have the most popular home interior trends for you:


1 Go Neutral

Gone are the days of bright walls and “interesting wallpaper.” Neutrals allow you to be more creative when it comes to furniture carpet and curtains, and since they don’t date like bright colours you can redecorate multiple times without needing to repaint. If you are a fan of splashes of bright colours, consider adding some artwork or even going for a feature wall.

2. Focus on nature

Bringing nature into your home is easier than ever as more and more homes are built with a focus on indoor-outdoor flow. Living walls, plants, and even fountains are increasingly finding their way inside, and horticulture inspired wallpapers and fabrics are on-trend. Natural materials like cork, wood, stone and metals are also becoming more popular.

3. Pattern and texture

There has recently been a move towards the use of quilt-like and geometric patterns in floor tiles, art and splash-backs. We can expect to see even more experimentation with  patterns in 2016 and beyond. A good way to incorporate these patterns is through cushions, rugs and accent chairs- keeping you up with the latest trends without going overboard or needing redecoration when it goes out of style.


4. Large rooms

With the rise of websites like Pinterest we’re seeing a focus on simple uncluttered spaces, and with the popularity of home decoration programs on TV, knocking down walls to turn two smaller rooms into one larger room is becoming the norm. This is why it’s a good idea to get rid of any old furniture that is cluttering up your space, and replace it with simple, comfortable neutrals. This also makes a room look larger and more inviting.

5. Choose flattering lighting

Lighting makes a huge difference in the way your home appears to visitors, and choosing the right lighting can help you draw attention to certain spaces and make your home look more welcoming. There’s no reason why you can’t show your personality through your lightening as well. Whether you like industrial style lighting or prefer unique pieces will depend on the style and atmosphere of your home. Consider visiting flea markets and antique stores to find lighting options that will be a talking point.
