Interior Design Trends To Make Your Weston Home Shine In 2019
2018 was a fantastic year for home remodeling, but 2019 could be even better. Take Ken’s advice and make the interior designs in your Weston and South Florida home be the best they can be. Here are our five best tips to make your projects this year spectacular.
Keep Track of Current Trends
When planning or working on your next project, always make sure to be aware of what is in style. Being on the forefront of popular interior design movements can make your house stand out from the rest, and there are already several trends that appear to be coming. For instance, Elle Decor reports that gray, cooler tones are being used less by designers, who are currently preferring “stark white and warm neutrals.” Another current trend, interestingly, is four-poster beds, which Amy Sklar of Sklar Design states “provide a feeling of safety.”
Don’t be too Fancy
Even though it is important to keep track of current trends, one must be careful to not to overdo anything. Forbes states that “Over-inspiration is a key factor in home improvement regret.” Although magazines, television shows, and other mediums can be great for finding inspiration and design ideas to use for your project, too much will cause the result to appear cluttered or flashy, and result in clashing colors and textures. Keep your designs focused and balanced.
Look into New Types of Lighting
Several new lighting technologies are becoming popular, and can benefit anyone’s household. For instance, circadian rhythm lighting, which matches natural light in its warmth and shifts throughout the day as light changes outside, can ease the effects of artificial light. Jia Zhao, of the technology company Delos, mentions that “It’s changing the landscape of the smart home and lighting in general.” Research is increasingly showing that moving towards more natural lighting can benefit one’s happiness and sleep.
Smart Homes are on the Rise
In 2018, the idea of a “smart home” grew in popularity, and now the prices of the required devices make it affordable for almost anyone looking to make their home more technologically advanced. First, one chooses a virtual assistant, such as Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, or Google’s Assistant. Then, it comes down to selecting compatible devices for the areas of the home you wish to make “smart.” For instance, lightbulbs like Lifx and thermostats like Nest allow you to change the lighting and the temperature right through your phone, from the comfort of your couch. We definitely recommend checking out these useful pieces of technology.
Update Your Decor
2019 may be a great year to upgrade your home’s decor, whether you are planning to sell or just renovating for yourself, for a couple reasons. One, trends seem to be staying around longer, according to several industry experts. Instead of going out-of-style after a season or two, styles and themes seem to stay popular for over a year. Two, the Danish concept of Hygge, which has grown increasingly popular over the past few years, will become even more sought-after in 2019.
U.S. News & World Report suggests that due to “uncertainties in the world, we are all starting to favor comforting shades and warming colors in the home.” Hygge, which focuses on making the house a place to be cozy and content in, is definitely a concept to research when planning a new project.
