If you’re thinking about renovating in 2019, it’s time to start planning now. Whether you just want to titivate a few rooms or strip everything back to the bare walls and start again, you’ll want to get lots of ideas. To help you, we’ve been having a look at the interior design trends predicted for 2019.
Wall colours are predicted to be warm, almost neutral shades, such as ‘spiced honey’, which Dulux has made its 2019 Colour of the Year. However, in the kitchen, the trending colours will be anything but neutral, with dark cabinets and units – principally in shades of dark blue or matt black – expected to be popular. In fact, matt black is set to be big across all kinds of home and interior products, and we’re already getting a lot of requests for radiators to be finished in matt black.
The industrial look
If you’re thinking about an industrial-style makeover, you’ll be bang on trend. Concrete styling is the next big thing in bathroom design, and living areas will be enhanced with Crittall-style partitioning.
As technology advances, it’s becoming ever easier to make your home a smart one. You’ll be able to check the fridge from the office to see if you need to buy milk on the way home, look at the weather forecast on your smart mirror (which can also be programmed to tell you that you are the fairest of them all!), talk to the person who’s just rung your doorbell no matter where you are in the world, turn the lights on or off remotely and, if you’re going to get home unexpectedly early, you can turn the heating on in advance so it’s nice and cosy when you walk through the door.
We all want to do our bit for the environment, but we still want to be comfortable and have a gorgeous home. Luckily the trend towards sustainability is part of creating a beautiful home. In 2019, LED lighting will become even more popular, saving you money as well as electricity. You can also get taps and showerheads that’ll help you use less water. There is a trend towards using fabrics that have less impact on the environment, and organic cotton is now extremely popular, as well as a move towards sustainable flooring made from eco-friendly tiling and even floors created from reclaimed wood.
Whatever you decide on for your new interior design, make sure you also include a beautiful, functional and efficient radiator as an integral part of it. Take a look at our wide range of products online, then pop into one of our showrooms in North London, South London, St Albans, Brighton or Leamington Spa to see them for yourself and talk to one of our experts about the sizes you’ll need for the best heat output.
