If your New Year’s resolution is to choose a new interior design for your home, 2017 is your year. Interior designers the world over are excited about a bevy of trends that will be gracing the finest homes this year. Whether you are moving into one of the great custom homes in Tampa, Fl., or another part of the country, 2017 promises new “it” colors, styles, and design concepts that will make your abode stand out. 2017 will also be a departure for styles that have run their course, such as open floor plans.
The Tampa custom home builders at Alvarez Homes are well-versed in the latest trends and can infuse them into your home. Here’s a look at what interior designers are excited about in 2017:
For homeowners looking to add a sense of warmth to their interiors, terracotta is a perfect choice. In 2017, terracotta will be used in kitchens and bathrooms as we retreat from cooler colors. Terracotta provides a natural charm that adds character to any interior.
As mentioned earlier, people will be departing from open floor plans, instead opting for closed spaces. The open kitchen/living room concept has been wildly popular for years, but nuisances like noise and food smells are causing people to rethink this. While the kitchen can be a communal space, it’s also a work space. Sometimes, it’s nice to keep it hidden. Also, people are looking for personal spaces to get away from the noise of life. Look for more nooks to be built into homes this year as well.
2017 will be the year that furniture becomes more than just something that’s bought but rather something that’s made for your home. A return to artisan craftsmanship will mean more “one of kind” pieces will be seen in homes. Part of this trend will be seen in our greater interest in antique pieces that are not mass produced.
