Embrace the Latest Style Trends with Elegant Interior Finishes
Invest in Home Finishes that Enhance Your Interior Design
An eclectic approach to interior design has taken off in 2016 where designers look to match distinct styles throughout Minneapolis, MN homes to give it some added personality. From warm, relaxing tones in the bedroom to eye-popping patterns in the living room, every little detail is taken into account to create a beautiful, livable space. A big part of this design is to have home interior finishes in place that provide stylistic accents or minimize the influence of technology. Read on to see how custom finishes can help you embrace the latest style trends.
Give Your Home Metallic Accents
While the push for metallic walls diminished in 2016, the material is still popular in the form of metal accents. The goal of such accents is to give a pop to your interior design, whether it's in the shape of brass fixtures or a marble finish on your kitchen counters. You can also invest in faux finish marble wall mounts for your light switches, touchpads, or even thermostats. This lets you mask your technology while adding a touch of elegance.
A Living Room Free of Technology
Minimalist trends may also be dying down this year, but not when it comes to your technology. A focus has been placed on removing all technology from the living room. After spending most of the day in front of a computer or attached to a smartphone, families want a calming environment to come together at the end of the day. Of course, that doesn’t mean they have to be entirely devoid of entertainment. Rather, keep the unsightly technology hidden from view by installing invisible speakers in the walls, tucking the TV inside custom cabinetry or a niche on the ceiling, and flush mounting light switches on the wall.
Go Bold with Stylish Wallpaper
Changing the color of your walls will only get you so far, the latest trend in interior design is to go big with luxurious wallpaper. Embrace powerful patterns for your living room, dining room or even the bathroom. Don’t worry about your elegant pattern being interrupted by wall clutter. Invest in beautiful flush finishes for your light switches, outlets, thermostat or HVAC filters that match your wallpaper’s unique pattern.
Warm Finishes for the Bedroom
While there’s a move to go big in your living room, it’s the opposite when it comes to the bedroom. Designers have opted for warmer colors to help you wind down at the end of the day. They’ve also embraced the same minimalist feel with little visible technology. Get rid of unnecessary remotes or switches by investing in a smart home automation system that centralizes control on an elegant touchpad. The touchpad can be stored on a flush mount painted the same color as the surrounding wall.
