As 2016 approaches, you might be wondering how to freshen up the interior of your home for the new year. Paying attention to home design trends is especially important if you plan to sell your North Scottsdale house any time soon and are preparing to stage it to sell.
But even if you plan on staying in your home and showing it off for years to come, you can still make the most of your interior design by checking out the newest trends for 2016.
If you’ve been yearning to get creative with patterns and shapes in your interior decor, 2016 is the time to do it. Plain patterns are out, and interesting geometric patterns are in big time. Art deco style is especially en vogue, which means hexagons, triangles, and squares are now more popular than ever. You can use these patterns when you lay tile, choose your wallpaper, add a backsplash to your kitchen, or select artwork for your walls.
If you can’t decide on your favorite metallic finish, it’s your lucky day, because mixed metallics are the way to go next year. Metals that have warm tones are particularly popular, which means gold, brass, copper, and bronze will make any North Scottsdale house look stylish. Some of the best ways to incorporate this home design trend into your house include picture frames, end tables, and light fixtures, all in a mix of your favorite metals.
If you’re a fan of shopping local, you’ll love the fact that 2016’s home design trends include buying artisan goods, especially from local vendors. This way, you’ll never have the exact same items in your home as your neighbor does, even if you buy from the same vendor. Consider buying a carefully crafted pot to place on a bookshelf, or a crocheted blanket to toss over your couch. If you can make your own home goods, even better!
Bringing the outside in is another trend for 2016, and this is easy to do when you have lots of natural prints from which to choose. Animal prints and tribal patterns are popular as we enter the new year. You can get in on this trend by adding a few animal-print rugs and throws to your living room, complemented by some tribal-themed pictures or even tribal masks on the wall. Top it all off with some potted plants – either real or fake – to really bring the outdoors in.
