The New Year always ushers in new ideas, goals, styles, and designs. Don’t be left out and miss the upcoming design trends for 2015! Zillow Digs, DIY Network, HGTV, and many more have recently released their opinions for new design trends for 2015. Keep in mind these trends are upcoming trends which means it may take awhile for the public to embrace these trends. So if your home is on the market it is wise not to jump in with both feet into these design trends. Below we will highlight some design tips that are not extreme that would help give your home a fresh look and make it appealing to potential buyers.
BLUE ACCENT COLORS
Finding the perfect color scheme for your living space is always one of the hardest challenges in designing homes. Zillow Digs predicts that blue will be the accent color of 2015. Deep blue and navy colors really pop with the natural earth tones, making it the top color for 2015. If redesigning or renovating your home is on your New Year’s Resolution you may want to find furniture and paints that are natural earth tone colors then look for blue accent pieces. A fresh coat of paint, new furniture, and accent pillows will give your home a fresh look and make it more appealing to potential buyers.
Do you have that old family heirloom that you cannot seem to find a home for because it doesn’t fit with the decor of your home? 2015 is your lucky year, because mid-century items are coming back with a touch of modern influence. That chair that seems to fit nowhere will go great in the living room with a blue accent pillow and an earth tone throw blanket. The key is not to overdo the older elements in your design. Don’t let the older elements take over your home, just let them be little pieces of inspiration included in your design.
Everyone wants open floor plans because they allow for better sight lines in a home, are great for entertaining, and they make small spaces seem larger. Leading design experts predict that compartmentalization will be a big part of home design in 2015. Compartmentalization is so appealing because it gives the home owner all the perks of having an open floor plan but also allows them to have specific space designated for living, dining, and kitchen areas. Compartmentalization is achieved by grouping furniture in pods to encourage conversation. Properly utilizing space in your home can make small spaces seem larger and help your home show better to potential buyers here at the Lake.
STORAGE, STORAGE, STORAGE
Storage is always important to a home buyer because everyone thinks they have too much stuff and not enough space. Of course closets are a must, but you as a seller can make your home appear to have more storage by incorporating storage into the design of your home. For example, instead of having a normal ottoman get one that has storage inside so you can take the pillows and blankets out of the closet (which will make the closet appear to have more space). Using clever placement of furniture and creating designated storage space in a home will be an increasing trend in 2015 that is here to stay.
