Interior and furniture design trends for 2015
As we welcome in the New Year, we’ve had a little makeover of the digital kind! If you’ve visited our site before then you’ll have noticed we’ve undergone some big changes around here. Our imagery is now larger, our gallery is wider and our clients have kindly helped contribute towards a wonderful testimonials page.
We think our new website shows our projects off to a greater and more detailed extent than ever before, however we’d love to know what you think too. As always, please contact us on Facebook, Google Plus or via the contact form and feel free to share your thoughts.
But enough about our new site, let’s focus on the stunning interiors which we think will be popular in 2015 and timeless for years to come.
We like to remind people that contemporary styles can still transcend time. Beautiful hardwoods and granite surfaces never go out of style and there’s so many stunning options to choose from. Below are some of our favourite examples of popular modern designs which won’t date.
Rustic with a modern touch
This kitchen is a wonderful example of contemporary style mixed with classic farmhouse touches. The traditional ceramic kitchen sink and AGA brings charm to the space, while the black granite worktops and large rectangular floor tiles keep the look modern.
While in this instance the client’s property has beautiful exposed stone, it is also possible to recreate a similar look in a modern property by incorporating a feature brick oven/hob house. Please visit our bespoke kitchens page to see further examples of our contemporary installations.
Create a seamless transition from a food preparation area to dining space with an island crafted from mixed materials. In this kitchen, a stylish teardrop shape helps create an island which suits the proportions of the room, proving that you don’t have to go for a boxy style when choosing a central/off centre island.
Here we have handcrafted an oak semi-circular table and topped with a glass protector to create a classic contrast against the black granite.
Appliances to show your personality
This wonderful curved extractor fan required some quick-thinking during the installation stage (!), however we’re sure you’ll agree the results look stunning. This year we’ll be seeing extractor fans which have real artistic merit of their own. While the hidden ‘pop-up’ extractor fans have been doing the rounds in 2014 (and will continue to do so in 2015), suspended versions are becoming increasingly popular.
Bespoke windows and doors are a must for period and listed properties which often require hardwoods and careful craftsmanship in order to stay in line with the style of the building. If you’re selling your property in 2015, then a handcrafted entrance is a very effective way to appeal to potential buyers – it’s literally the first thing they’ll see!
Hidden media centres
In an age of fantastic American TV series’ (and of course brilliant British dramas too) it’s fair to say we’ve probably all spent the odd night or two staying up too late to finish off a season. If you were always against having a television in the bedroom or kitchen, some of these hit shows might have swayed you!
But that doesn’t mean you have to have your entertainment system in full view when you want to relax or socialise. Domestic media centres have become increasingly popular amongst people who want to keep their spaces multi-purpose and we can see this trend really coming into its own in 2015.
Our new gallery showcases some of our installations (both smaller commissions and large projects), so please take a look and glean inspiration for your own home or business.
If you’ve been inspired to enhance your home or business this year, please get in touch to discuss your ideas and vision for your property.
