Home design and renovation go hand-in-hand. According to a 2013 Houzz survey, 84% of participants had intentions to redesign their homes, another 40% said that they had some sort of home remodeling project or addition in the works, and 10% were in the process of building a custom home. This enthusiasm to add more, to make homes better, and to reinvigorate home designs does not go unnoticed by contemporary architects and interior designer architects. And that’s why they’ve come together to reveal the hottest design trends of 2015:
1. Tie-Dye Everything
“With the result of different experimental dye processes, new goods are seen embracing this psychedelic, popular ’60s [tie-dye] print,” Design and Trend writes. It’s back. Have fun with it. Manufacturers are selling anything from tie-dye bedding and furniture to tie-dye frames, decor accents, and pottery.
2. Standalone Tubs
Today’s trends focus on creating open, airy spaces for comfortable, but refined interiors. As such, standalone fixtures and appliances, like kitchen islands, waterfall kitchen sinks, and standalone tubs, are the latest home design and renovation trends to catch on. Many homeowners favor standalone tubs for their aesthetics and convenience. Contractors may be able to install the tubs in smaller spaces, opening up the possibility of a walk-in shower and other, roomier bathroom features.
3. All-White Rooms Are Still Going Strong
With designs changing — inevitably and often — many homeowners are looking for ideas that are adaptable. All-white fits the bill. All-white rooms have been stylish for some years now, and they’re not going away. Decorating and remodeling a room in all-white gives it a light and spacious feel. Plus, choosing white decor and white walls makes it relatively easy to switch things up. If you do get bored, adding some accents — a pop of color, patterns, or some prints — isn’t difficult.
What’s the latest in home design? Homeowners are favoring large, open spaces (or features and color schemes that create this illusion) as well as crazy, tie-dye prints.
