At Fairland, our teams carry out residential renovations throughout London and the South-East. We work on large-scale extensions, property redevelopments and new builds. Because we’re involved in projects from the ground up through to the final finish, we are fortunate to work with a whole host of talented third parties. These professionals include architects and interior designers. So, we are involved in the implementation of some of the latest interior design trends. In this week’s article, we thought we would share five of our favourite design ideas for 2020 and beyond.
Residential Renovations & Interior Design Trends
Unsurprisingly interior design trends are taking influence from lockdown life. As we all spend more and more time at home, we’ve become aware that a home needs to offer so much more than a space to lay our head.
Paints to help you ‘Keep Calm & Carry On.’
In a world that, this year, has been somewhat chaotic, we all look to seek calm reassurance. And no more so than in the sanctuary of home. So, it stands to reason that the Dulux Paint Colour of the Year does exactly that. Dulux describes ‘Brave Ground‘ as a “bolstering shade that connects back to nature and the simple things. A warm, earthy tone, it creates a feeling of stability, growth and potential.”
An Island Escape
As we yearn for travel bans and quarantine rules to end, we’re embracing distant shores from the comfort of home. Tropical brights and printed soft furnishings combine beautifully with beach-toned subtle pastels and monotones for a fresh modern interior.
Bringing the Outside In & Vice Versa
Houseplants are amazing powerhouses of wellness. They can help to improve the air quality in your home and reduce stress. As many continue to work from home, it’s important to remember the part they play in improving productivity and creativity. So, more and more of us are looking for clever ways to incorporate them into our living spaces.
As hospitality and pub refurbishment specialists, we have often seen the use of vertical gardens in commercial settings. But these are about to become extremely popular in residential settings too, albeit on a smaller scale.
Another trend we’ve seen commercially that is becoming more popular in residential renovations is adapting outside spaces for year-round use. Patios, decks and outside spaces are important extensions of our living areas for socialising with friends and family. So, we’re beginning to see more and more innovative ways of covering, heating and furnishing these spaces.
The Home Bar
As the pandemic continues to limit our ‘going out-out’ options in London and the South-East, the home bar is becoming a thing. These can be incorporated inside the home, think high-end wine fridges or classic cocktail cabinets, or dedicate an area of your outside entertaining area to your home bar.
The joinery workshop we partner with are, at present, working on a range of designs for clients, who want to install a high-end home bars.
Burning it Off
Once you’ve indulged at your home bar, you might like somewhere to burn it off! Home gyms, like home offices, are becoming popular requests as part of a new-build or large-scale residential renovation. But we’re not talking a treadmill in the corner of the garage. Dedicated spaces with mirrors, music, lighting and incorporating suitable materials are becoming as popular as Peloton bikes!
