5 Interior design trends that will disappear this year
Industrial looks are getting overshadowed by natural elements – Interior design trends.
Open-floor plans have proved less functional than divided spaces.
Having one big space for your kitchen and living room isn’t as comfortable anymore as it may have once been.
Open-floor plans once soared in popularity in the interior-design world, however, the trend may taper off.
Many people have learned the hard way during the pandemic that perhaps your kitchen, home office, dining area, great room, and living room should not all be the same.
Ultimately, lack of privacy leads to a lack of functionality.
Those with open spaces may look to find ways to add some separation through wall dividers and other forms of privacy.
Fast furniture will be less of a fad.
People are buying more furniture that’s built to last.
Shopping for cheap, semi quality pieces of furniture that can be built quickly at home won’t be as popular going forward,
We will also be seeing less fast furniture in the coming years. Our rooms now see daily multifunctional use, and people are customising them to provide flexible and adaptive living spaces,
So clients will be opting for better pieces that have a greater purpose beyond quality for the sake of longevity.
Open shelving will likely be replaced.
Open shelving had a major moment, but it might be coming to an end.
Over the past couple of years, people have spent more time at home and really used their kitchens.
It has become painfully obvious that open shelving doesn’t work and just ends up looking cluttered and messy, while also lacking the storage capacity of cabinets.
Instead, a combination of upper cabinets and decorative shelving will pave the way this year.
Exposed kitchen extractors will continue decreasing in popularity.
Beautiful and stylish kitchen extractors have become a staple in many kitchens, but we may start to see less of the trend.
Traditional restaurant-style kitchen hoods will continue to disappear in 2022 as people opt for the cleaner and concealed look,
Kitchen extractors will now be low profile and flushed with the rest of kitchen cabinetry.
Grey is nearing the end of its decade of popularity.
Neutrals like white, beige, and grey have all been popular colours throughout the home. But grey, in particular, seems to be phasing out the quickest.
Colour schemes come and go but typically have a popularity lifeline of about a decade. Gray is coming to the end of its decade,
People are growing tired of neutral colours like white, beige, and grey.
While grey colour schemes were once popular for their universally appealing, modern look — especially in kitchens — we should expect to see more bold and dramatic colours for cabinets and backsplashes this year.
