We might count history in centuries, but the last 80 years can definitely be divided into individual decades according to the fashions, styles and trends that were rampant during those times. Today, we’ll be looking at some awesome interior design ideas that define these past 10 years, so let’s have a look:
1. Trendy accent walls
Believe it or not, feature walls did not use to be a ‘thing’ – not at least until this decade. Before this, plain painted walls with a frame or two used to suffice as the major attraction. However today, designing a house without a proper feature wall is like eating a burger without a meat patty. It’s become quite a timeless trend – one that is sure to last for a long while.
2. Hyped media walls
Back in the 90s and early 2000s when TV’s used to be large and clunky, and there was no concept of flat-screen LCDs, media walls used to be a thing of imagination. Instead, there used to be unimaginative consoles and TV trolleys that almost always used to have a negative impact on the whole interior. But this decade has given us numerous sleek, stylish media wall designs that are absolutely ageless in aesthetic.
3. Compact spaces
With the dramatic increase in the worlds population we’ve also experienced a distinct lack of real estate shortage – especially on the finite island of Singapore. Therefore, the art of compact layout and designing has become a major trend of this decade. We constantly see stacked beds, foldable furniture and other smart objects that have made it easier to live in small spaces.
4. Walk-in closets
Fashion has always been in fashion no matter what century you live in, but this decade has all been about nurturing it. Everybody has their own peculiar tastes and there has been a distinct outcropping for local and international fashion houses, which is why walk-in closets have become a great addition to contemporary home spaces.
5. Compartmentalized bathrooms
Gone are the days when bathrooms actually used to be lined with shags for maximum appeal. This decade has been all about bringing back the classy. Therefore, beautiful bathrooms that have been sleekly and efficiently compartmentalized are the new norm. It has allowed us to be as ergonomic as possible even in the smallest of spaces.
