This year is all about making a statement, letting your personality shine through and not being afraid to be bold. Yes, minimal white kitchens look beautiful and when accessorised well, can be very striking. But they can also be a pain to keep spotlessly clean, especially if you’re pressed for time or have a family. Don’t be afraid to take a risk with your interior design. If you’re indecisive or can’t bring yourself to make the leap, opt for bold accessories that can be easily changed. Mirrors, wall art, handles, rugs and lighting are all great ways to add personality to a space without long-term commitment.
On the subject of being bold, mix & match is a key trend for 2016. This works particularly well in a kitchen, using one style of cabinet on the walls and a different style for base units, or a statement island. Try mixing colours and textures to create an eye-catching kitchen that will set you apart from the rest.
This year is all about transforming the bathroom from simply a practical space, often overrun with clutter, into a space you can relax, refresh and indulge in. Bathrooms are starting to feel more like living spaces, with the addition of comfortable seating and soft furnishings, like rugs, side tables, fresh flowers and books. Key to this trend is a clever design that incorporates enough storage to hide away clutter, and maximizes available space for comfortable seating. Make your bathroom feel more like a spa with clever zoned lighting and sound system technology.
