The world of interior design is ever changing, with trends regularly falling in and out of popularity. The key to having a sustainable style is finding those long-term trends that never go out of fashion or, at the very least, using easily replaceable accessories throughout the home.
Mixing up your decor can revitalise any room and give it a whole new look for you to enjoy. If you want to mix up the atmosphere of your home but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. Here are our favourite interior design trends that you can easily adapt to feature in your home.
As the name suggests, minimalism radiates a ‘less is more’ vibe without looking too clinical. We’re talking no clutter and certainly no useless pieces that get in the way.
It’s always tempting to fill a space just to have something there, but this often makes rooms appear smaller and messier. Select essential furniture and a few key pieces rather than overloading a room with clutter.
Don’t get ahead of yourself and start chucking your valuables away though, just to achieve this sleek look. You never know when you may have a change in taste in the future.
Instead, put those items you don’t want to feature in your rooms into storage to enjoy that minimalist look without any risks. You’ll also be able to take it out whenever you wish, so you don’t have to worry about having to replace your belongings should you want to.
Everyone knows that having a statement piece is key to an eye-catching room, particularly if it’s an open space. Rather than picking up another item of furniture, why not go for something more natural?
Think big leafy ferns, aloe vera plants and cacti strategically placed around the room, such as in empty corners or on coffee tables to brighten up the space. Plants clean the air around you and have a plethora of health benefits, so they’re easy on the eye, the body and the mind.
Without accent colours, your rooms may feel a little lacklustre. Give them an instant boost by incorporating small but bold pieces of decor into your rooms, such as block coloured cushions, vases and artwork.
Using bold accents is especially important if you want to brighten up a space that uses more neutral pieces as a base.
Don’t go overboard with the patterns and colours, instead stick to a few key pieces. Put your outdated decor into storage and get to work with filling your space with 2019’s most popular colours. Think mustard yellow, teal, millennial pink and coral tones, all of which are easy to pair with more neutral shades, such as black or grey.
There’s something about a crisp black bathroom that reminds us of a luxury spa. The sultry colour looks incredible in a well-lit space and, while it may not be for everyone, it’s undeniably modern.
You can start by replacing your mirrors, mats and other bathroom accessories with black varieties. If you still want to keep an element of brightness, leave the walls white and keep using accessories to get the same effect. This is the best option for those who like to change up the look of their home every now and again, as you can just put the furniture in a secure unit when you fancy a change.
If you’re committed to the vampy vibe, then give your bathroom a lick of paint. Matte black oozes opulence and modern style, making it a great choice for those who want something trendy.
Bad news for the clumsy among us, but white rooms are undoubtedly on trend. Romantic, fresh and simply striking, there’s something luxurious about a low key colour palette.
It doesn’t have to look overly clinical, either, as this is the perfect opportunity to incorporate some bold accents or statement plants to keep the area cosy.
Just make sure that the base of the room, such as the furniture and bed sheets, are white. This will act as a stunning background for the accent pieces – and will stop you sneaking snacks into bed.
