4 Design Trends to Make Your Property Shine
Showcasing your property can be a daunting proposition. Not only are you hoping for a good financial result, you’re also hoping that people are impressed. The thought of complete strangers walking slowly through your home and meticulously judging every last detail can make anyone feel a little nervous.
That’s why it’s important to adhere to the latest property design trends when showcasing a property. Design, like fashion, is always changing. What worked one year ago won’t necessarily work today.
Showing an awareness of the latest trends can make your property feel fresh and new – and for people looking to buy a new home, that’s an important feeling. When people look to move house, they’re looking for a fresh start, and your property will either promise to provide or fall flat.
Here are the latest design trends for 2017 you should be aware of when showcasing a property:
The idea of being space efficient is becoming increasingly important, and in 2017, properties with fold-up rooms and appliances will be particularly appealing to practical homeowners.
Having abundant fold-up features allows homeowners to have their cake and eat it too – they get to have a range of appliances and functions in their home, but they also have spacious areas to play with.
Cork was especially popular in the 70s, but is making its way back. Cork is created from the bark of cork oak, which can be harvested from the same tree every 7 to 10 years. Because the tree never has to be cut down, cork is an eco-friendly and organic option for home design.
But it’s also incredibly well-suited to the purpose. It insulates sound, heat and electricity, is resistant to moisture and requires a low level of maintenance.
In an age where everything is done on a screen or device, tactile textures help to bring us back to using our sense of touch to interact with the world. As such, they’re all the rage in 2017.
Think velvets, felt, fur and anything else with a tactile appeal.
The Pantone Color of the Year is a bright and vibrant green, bringing a sense of nature back into the home in a digital era.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, says that the colour represents “refreshment, rejuvenation and rebirth” – perfect attributes for homeowners seeking a fresh start in an exciting new home.
