Interior Design trends – 2019
Each year has its own design trends, and 2019 is no different. The ways you can decorate your home are numerous, and it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on the yearly trends to get even more inspired. The perfect home is different for each and every one of us, so it’s important to experiment with everything that’s offered to you. Interior design is a form of art, and with a little help, you could be the greatest artist your town has ever seen.
1. A surround sound system
Cinemas have simply lost their appeal ever since Netflix became more popular. What’s the point of paying so much for a ticket and going to see a movie when you can catch your favourite show on Netflix from the comfort of your own home?
With a surround sound system, your design will simply flourish. Now you really won’t have a reason to go to the cinema. Your home will match the speaker capabilities and bring you into the world of the movie or show without a problem. As well as that, you have to admit that black speakers in various corners of the room make for elegant finishes touches on the existing design.
2. Find the perfect drapes
The perfect drapes could make or break your design. We all understand that drapes are needed for a sense of privacy, but up to now, people haven’t been paying too much attention to them. A typical home has had a set of blinds clinging from the windows forever, and maybe some white curtains to make the windows seem less empty.
The drapes can tie the whole place together and complete the ambient you’re trying to create. You can experiment with various designs and match them to the rest of your home. As well as that, you don’t have to opt for the typical pair of drapes. Go for the modern roman blinds or try on the honeycomb blinds for size.
3. Go minimalistic
Minimalism isn’t as new as many would believe it to be. This trend started early in the 20th century and is quickly making a comeback in 2019. With capitalism oppressing us so much and with consumerism pressuring us to buy so many things, it’s only natural to fight back. With a minimalistic design, you’ll be showing the world that beauty doesn’t have to come from material things.
Excessive decoration doesn’t have to be the only way to show everyone how amazing your home is. Strip down the furniture to its function and let the bare beauty shine through. In this case, less definitely is more, and everyone who steps into your home will surely see it.
4. Led lights
Regular lights are no longer in style. With their yellow light, short lifespan, and high contribution to the electric bill, it’s about time we replaced them. 2019 is all about being eco-friendly, and led lights are just that. Replace all of your bulbs with the more energy efficient and durable LED bulbs as soon as possible. It’s not just that simple, though.
You can also buy led strip lights and create interesting patterns around your home. These lights usually have many different colours in them, allowing you to create a kind of light show in your own living room and bedroom. They’re also perfect for creating more intimate or party atmospheres and will be a hit at every celebration. The best part is that they can go anywhere in the house, allowing you to customize your design to the very details.
5. Mix and match
It’s no longer about having a uniform design all around the house. Mixing and matching different designs and textures is all 2019 is about. The most famous example of this is the Industrial design, which transforms any room into something remarkable. You can also mix other styles that would otherwise be unmixable and get the most original results.
If you’re not comfortable experimenting on such a high level right away, you can try with mixing different textures. The cushions don’t have to be made out of the same material as the furniture you put them on, for instance. Find textures that complement each other or use complete opposites to highlight the beauty in both decorative items. Mixing and matching is the ideal way to show your creativity to the world.
As you can see, these trends are meant to open up your home to the modern age and give it an edge over all the others in your neighbourhood. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, as 2019 is all about creativity and originality. Your home can be the extension of your quirky and creative side that you’ve been itching to let out. With these trends, your home will look exactly like the most beautiful homes in magazines.
