Interior Design 2016: Find About Fresh New Trends

Interior Design 2016: Find About Fresh New Trends

In order to stay in a good mood and to be productive, we need to change our environment from time to time. If you haven’t changed your home style in a while, this could be the best time to do it, because the latest trends of 2016 are simply to die for. The combination of different styles, mixture of materials and cozy rooms are a new trend, so let’s see the must-haves for every room in your house.

1. Kitchen: it’s all about workhorse islands.

At one point it was popular to have bars in the kitchen, and almost every home had one. However, new bars are workhorse islands. They require a spacious kitchen, or one that is a bit bigger, so it isn’t an obstacle to move around your kitchen and cook. As they are supposed to make cooking easier by providing enough space to prepare ingredients, they are a necessity for big families.

The mixture of raw materials, tiles of warm colors and wooden French country workhorse islands with concrete counter tops will make you spend the whole day just sitting in your kitchen. Ditch boring grey colors, especially if your kitchen is open to the dining room. You want to make people feel comfortable, and not like they are in an office.

2. Dining room: formal dining rooms are in again.

Dining rooms are usually used for weekend lunches and dinners, holidays and reunions. As we lead busy lives and rarely have time to eat with our family during work days, weekends are time to bond and find out what’s been happening during the week.

So, create the dining room that will reflect your family’s taste, but give it a formal touch, as you want to provide your family with the best atmosphere during holidays. Moreover, if you are hosting formal cocktail parties, then make sure people don’t feel overdressed at your home.

Formal dining rooms are thankfully again in, so don’t turn your dining room into an office, as it was a trend until recently. Just add some vintage chairs and table, and don’t forget to let some light in your dining room.

3. Living room: tech-free and cozy

Living rooms are the place where you can spend some quality time with your family and friends. However, with different tech trends came PS4, Xbox One, huge TVs, sound systems and other things that only isolate you from the people you love.

It’s perfect to watch some film on a quality TV screen with your friends or family, or play a multiplayer game on PS4 or Xbox One, but as they are pretty addictive, we forget to talk to each other even when we are in the room together. Because of that, the new trend of tech free and cozy living rooms, where we can unplug and kick back, is something we have all been waiting for.

Rest after a busy day spent in front of your computer, and enjoy your silent and comfy living room. After some time spent in a tech-free living room, you’ll notice how you actually bond with your family, so don’t forget to stop scrolling your news feed and leave your phone alone in this new living room.

4. Bedroom: headboards

When we were teenagers, we wanted to have trendy and colorful headboards, and they were usually full of different pictures and quotes. But, they are trendy again, and any style can be upgraded with this simple addition.

If you like simple bedrooms, without many items and colors, headboard can make your bedroom cozier and more comfortable. Let’s say, for example your bedroom is white with some wooden wardrobe and some flowers. If you add wooden headboard, it will take the style of your bedroom to a whole new level.

If you are creative and want to save some money, there are many DIY headboard ideas to choose from. Look for different headboards, and find the right one for you or just search for an idea, so you could make it by yourself.

5. Bathroom: statement mirror

No more boring bathrooms and no more medicine cabinets that take up too much space. We are all happy to know that statement mirrors are a new trend, as this means a variety of mirrors in different styles, shapes and colors. If you like wooden materials, then make sure you take a look at wood-framed statement mirrors.

On the other hand, if you would like to add some vintage touch to your bathroom, then look for vintage statement mirrors with ornate gems. There are many beauties, which will make your bathroom look stylish and beautiful. Just remember that the bathroom should be a place of relaxation, where all of your worries disappear, so don’t use anything with aggressive colors.

These great interior design trends of 2016 have brought back items and styles that promise to bring us closer with our family and allow us to relax. Owing to the great comeback of formal dining rooms and cozy furniture, we are provided with a lot of different items to choose from and different ideas to upgrade our homes. I hope you have a great time coming up with remodeling ideas based n these guidelines.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
