More Materials For Your Design Creativity
In the past, the materials available for use during interior design were limited to wood, metal and a few other common materials. In 2017 going forward, the number of materials you can use has dramatically increased. This increases the creative freedom one might need when doing interior design. It also makes it possible to mix and match different materials for more personalized designs. These include leather, metallic finishes, crackled resin, reclaimed wood and more.
Kitchens Will Be Featuring More Dark Metal Finishes
Over the past few years, the typical kitchen has featured silver finishes and the use of silver appliances such as fridges, toasters and cookers to match with the design. However, this has seen a shift starting late 2016, and likely to gain momentum in 2017. This shift if seeing people using darker metal finishing for kitchens to give them a more elegant look and feel. Satin brass, matte black and other similar colors end up looking extremely futuristic and elegant, and attract a high demand from customers doing interior design.
