Naturally, as with anything else having to do with style and home improvement or renovation, in Ottawa, there are certain aspects of design that come in and out of what people are looking for as far as what is trending or what gets the most attention across the board. For example, the popular colours for this year appear to be purple, brown, greens and light blues, and the varying shades and hues associated with these colours.
Accordingly, this year the preferred approach to interior design leans more towards being minimalistic in nature. However, there is a futuristic feel to the materials found in rooms like the kitchen and bathroom such as glass, stainless steel, and chrome accents coupled with uncluttered storage motifs that appear in cleaner and flatter lines presenting an economic use of space. One highly popular shelf design is the use of floating shelves in the bathroom accompanied with rich brown cabinets for the sink basin coupled with soft pastels for contrast.
Furthermore, going green with water and energy saving measures in the bathroom and kitchen has risen in popularity this year, along with combining Eco friendly furniture into a home’s landscape. This gives the appearance of practicality and elegance simultaneously within an Ottawa home.
These trends stem from the move towards sustainable living. This translates into reconditioning old wooden furniture and cabinetry utilizing bold colours as a contrast with pastels to accentuate the redeeming features and style of the interior of your home. Understandably, in the midst or realm of home renovation embracing the present trends is something to ponder while, as a home owner, you play with different ideas for how you wish to revamp your Ottawa home.
