Top 5 design trends for 2019

Every year architectural designs evolve to meet consumers needs. Below are the 5 top design trends this year:

  1. Use of Traditional Organic Materials: Organic materials such as Glass, Natural Stone, and Metals are being incorporated into interior and outdoor living spaces. Polished glossy surfaces of these materirals enhance the appearance of an area while not over powering the space. Their timeless nature plus the strength and durability of these materials make them an excellent choice for designers.
  2. Blending Functionality With Luxury: Architects and designers are turning to luxurious as well as functional design elements. Every piece should have a purpose and be cohesive with the overall design concept.
  3. Bringing The Outdoors In: Allowing natural light into an interior space is not only aesthetically pleasing - it also helps to reduce energy costs. “Daylighting” has been shown in studies to improve the well-being and productivity of occupants. Warm natural color tones, increasing the presence of plants in a living areas, and views of the outdoor surroundings can also be employed to bring the serenity of nature indoors.
  4. Elegant Straight Lines and Geometric Shapes: The simplicity of straight lines and geometric shapes add a modern flair to any design. The addition of soft curves are also an appealing touch.
  5. Eco Friendly Products: Green consciousness is definitely important to architects and consumers alike. Materials and resources used need to be environmentally friendly. Being able to repurpose and/or recycle materials is often the objective while keeping in mind energy consumption and the impact on the ecological footprint.
