We all like to give our home a facelift to adapt it to new tastes or trends. What’s more, restyling our home is necessary from time to time, as it’s a place where we spend a lot of time and it’s important to feel comfortable in it. For that reason, it is very essential that our house reflects that style that we like the most or with which we identify the most.
There are many styles of decoration and sometimes it is difficult to choose one or the other, so here we summarize which are the most fashionable decorative styles that are currently and, at the same time, are more recommended for a home.
Decoration styles: Options to choose from
The industrial style
This decorative style has its origin in the typical architecture of the old industrial warehouses of New York in the 50s and 60s, surfaces that over time were converted into dwellings respecting their architectural lines. It is, therefore, an unpretentious style in which materials such as brick or metals take centre stage. In its most modern version, the industrial style resorts to elements such as copper or steel. The main characteristics of this trend are:
- Use of course materials such as cement or brick, as well as worn and rusty metals that can be achieved with products such as the Oxitem system of Blatem Paints.
- Leaving construction elements such as beams, pipes or pillars visible.
- The predominance of open spaces with high ceilings and large windows.
The Scandinavian style
It is the interior design style par excellence of the 21st century. It is based on the functional and minimalist design of both the homes and the decorative elements that are in them. This trend seeks the welfare of people through the creation of a simple environment that transmits peace and tranquility. This decoration is based on the small details to give the differential touch to a house and create that personalized touch. The Scandinavian style can be defined through the following characteristics:
- The use of uniform colours, predominantly white, grey and beige.
- Use of contemporary and functional decorative elements.
- Predominance of straight lines, simple and soft contours.
Renewed traditional style
This is a revision of the classic style of decoration. Where there used to be noble woods, heavy textiles and opulent decoration, now there is furniture with simpler lines, with smooth fabrics or subtle prints and the use of soft colours. It can be said that the classic style has evolved towards a more contemporary side but maintaining some of the key elements that characterize it. In short, the traditional renewed style is differentiated by the following aspects:
- Presence of traditional construction forms such as moldings or skirting boards.
- Decorative pieces of high quality are used in materials such as glass, shiny metals or noble woods.
- The use of clear paints or paints that create effects on the walls, such as Stucco Palace or Ante Veladura by Blatem.
