How Home Design Trends Will Change In The Next Decade, According to Interior Designers
Unique Blog’s job is to deliver the truth to its readers, so we won’t sugarcoat it for you: Change is a’coming. We are in a new decade and 2020s continue to be a mystery. The transformation our world is suffering due to the pandemic crisis makes us feel a little scary about forging into the great unknown, nevertheless we’re excited to see that design trends the next decade will bring.
It will take some time before we fully embrace the new design trends, and we’re sure that the living room will be the first area we’ll spot the next big thing. Living rooms are, without a doubt, the most-trafficked rooms of the house. And after the pandemic crisis, this area has been seen as a mental brief vacation where we’re able to gather with friends and family and enjoy an afternoon watching Netflix shows.
Living rooms are going to change in the next ten years, and we’ve selected a handful of predictions from the best design experts and design brands of the world. The answers run the gamut of customization, to maximalism, to the end of living rooms as we know.
CUSTOMIZED DESIGN PIECES
In the next decade, we’ll see custom furniture and lighting pieces become more prevalent as clients will want something unique that reflects them. “You’ve got millennials all thinking they are special snowflakes and this will be their decade to start investing in one-of-a-kind pieces.” —Sara Malek Barney, owner and principal designer of Bandd Design
“I think living rooms will continue to be morphed into the ultimate spaces to relax and lounge with family. Functionality and comfort will be the underlying current of these spaces, but they’ll be realized in modern and stylish way. Don’t expect to see your mom’s family room from the ’90s!” —Alessandra Wood
COMFORT AND WELL-BEING
We will witness a transition to creating areas that promote well-being and emotional comfort. Living rooms will no longer have a museum-look, rather than that, they will be welcoming and relaxing.
Considered the hidden gems of our home, dining rooms are finally getting their recognition! Throughout the years, living spaces have become smaller and many people moved their meals to the kitchen and kitchen islands. For many other reasons, this area of the house has become obsolete. The next decade, we’ll see attention once again toward the dining area and many interior designers believe that they will be more versatile.
FOR EVERY PURPOSE
The pandemic crisis has changed dramatically the concept of home. The house has extra tasks such as home office, home gym, and other daily activities, so rather than creating a formal dining room, in the next decade, they will be a hug of energy for home, buffet, bar, family dinners and beyond.
“I think there will be more plants added to dining rooms. One of my hopes is that plant hangings become the new chandeliers. I think natural elements will be used here, and while mixed-match chairs has been a trend these past few years, I think consistency in seating will be the look in 2020. And these seats will be geometric in shape and natural in material.” —Hilton Carter, interior stylist and founder of Things by H
GRAPHIC AND BOLD
It will be time to think outside the box and create a space with statement pieces that will be the center of attention. Bold design choices will be highlighted by the display of one-of-a-kind chandeliers.
We’re sure that all the design lovers will be surprised with the design experts‘ predictions about how kitchen styleswill evolve in the next decade!
“I predict that the biggest change won’t be in a wood finish or countertop, but with technology,” says Chicago-based designer Caitie Smithe from Walter E. Smithe. “Smart kitchens are the kitchens of the future.” Envision your kitchen as a place where refrigerators can tell us when food is ready to be pitched or specific items are getting low and need to be reordered, “since grocery delivery is the grocery store of the future.”
OPEN FLOOR PLAN
Big kitchens have been covetable over the last decade, but for the next ten years, we’ll see a shift toward smaller and more functional areas.
The thing we love most about interior design is the ability of experts to transform the atmosphere, no matter where we’re located. There is no need to have a farm to enjoy the bygone charisma of one. Nothing says home sweet home betther than a farmhouse-style cooking area. A curated yet raw aesthetic dances creatively between the eclectic and the minimal, having a stylish balance we all want to bring home or to one design project we have in mind. A sleek look that makes industrial aesthetic reel us all the time.
Each person has a different design taste, but one thing a bedroom should always be, though, is cozy. We spend one-third of our lives sleeping, and those of us who love the snooze button even log even more time in bed. Having a comfortable and relaxing bedroom décor isn’t just nice, it’s nonnegotiable. Convenience is key.
“Forget the ‘comforts of home.’ Now it’s about the comforts of my favorite hotel! From the perfect crisp linens to midnight kitchens, there are a lot of lessons about good living that we can learn from the best hotel experiences. Clients experience all of these comforts and luxuries from their travels—why shouldn’t they take them home?” —Christine Gachot, principal and co-founder of Gachot.
Everyone needs a place to unplug. Windowed walls will continue being a strong architecture feature that allows natural light to come in our house.
Classic design pieces will stand the test of time. Bedrooms will be welcoming and relaxing and the color palettes will highlight that. You can select an array of pretty colors or keep it simple by zeroing in on a single hue or color family. At first sight, monochromatic seems to be the easiest way, because there is no worry about mixing various tones, nevertheless, this decision is demanding precision. Curating a collection of similarly colored design pieces, lighting, accessories, etc, is a tough task and deceptively challenging. A little flaw such as one erroneous hue and you can be breaking the balance of the entire room, and creating a not desired focal point. If you’re striking with one color, you have to pick the exact hue and nail it.
