Latest trends in from the international design industry.

Interzum 2019 presented a wide range of new products and innovations. One of the aspects that were reflected through the entire exhibition was the shift towards new colour schemes and decor finishes.

When considering redesigning your living areas, you need to decide whether you want to create a trendy feel or a look that will last for years to come. Certainly the kitchen or living area of any home is an investment. Taking the necessary time and thought into these aspects can certainly increase the property value.

A gloss finish was and still is one of the more popular choices when it comes to kitchens. It gives a clean and hygienic atmosphere which creates space. White high gloss is always a good starting point when the iconic two tone kitchen is desired.

Combining materials, textures and finishes.

Another new trend was the super satin matte finishes combined with natural colours and textured designs.

The movement is also to use three or four colour combinations with added textures. Darker colours incorporated as accents were also seen in many designs and greatly increases the dynamic of the overall designs.

The flow and layout of a design is also becoming very important. We see the focus being on lifestyle kitchens that is not only functional but makes a statement and reflects the personality of the home owner.

Themes like recycling, green concepts and natural materials are combined with metals and steel in order to create a very interesting design concept, again a reflection of character.

Certain finishes can add a great deal of sophistication when it comes to the overall look of a living space.
