The new year usually motivates people to change things up, whether it be in their lifestyle or fashion choices. Home design, of course, is no exception. The arrival of a new year signals new trends for interior designers and style-savvy homeowners alike who are on the lookout for new ways to modify homes.
Today, we look at some of the new interior design trends for the year 2018 as suggested by trendsetters and industry experts and how these trends can be applied to your home with Ackworth House’s line of Timber stairs.
Natural, Earth Colours
Contrary to the loud and bold characteristics of the recently announced colour of the year, the interior design industry suggests that 2018 is still the year of natural, earth colours.
Earth colours are desaturated versions of different hues and can be found in the centre of the colour wheel. This lets them provide a good balance of warm and cool tones in home decor. Brown and beige specifically exhibit both warmth and relaxation in a room.
Scandinavian Design Trends
A specific type of design that maximises the use of natural, earthy home decor elements is Scandinavian design. Inspired by the modern style of the Nordic region — Denmark, Sweeden, Finland, Iceland and Norway, Scandinavian design is a minimalistic style that uses neutral or monochromatic colour schemes and organic, natural materials.
Wood is a versatile material in Scandinavian design due to its range of colours. Light brown wood is functional and gives off a light and dainty illusion suitable for small living spaces. Dark wood, on the other hand, gives a subtle touch of luxury due to its rich colour.
Modern Wooden Stairs as a Design Element
Ackworth House’s Timber stairs is a collection that combines subtle strength and timeless appeal with function and durability. Its natural colours meet the recommendations of 2018’s interior design trends.
Apart from being a staple element of Scandinavian home design, wood is a low-maintenance material that lasts for years, is a cost-effective material that also suits the interior design’s movement towards sustainability.
