Cookie Cutter – Typical Designs with a Flair
There have been so many variations in design over the centuries – some of them grand, some of them radical, and some of them subtle – that it is hard to pinpoint a design that is not a hybrid these days. What we do know is that we have denoted some of the most prominent features of these styles and made them a permanent feature of our contemporary. These cookie cutter objects now define the interior, flow and activities of our everyday homes – a quintessential piece of modern suburbia. These contemporary objects have become an inherent parts of our homes and apartments without us ever realizing that we’d set a trend. Maybe they will change, maybe they will not, but at this moment, these have become the definition of what we consider conventional. That does not mean that this conventional cannot be highlighted with a flair. So today, we would be looking at a few cookie cutter designs with a flair.
Open floor planning was introduced in the era of modernism. Not only does it establish a firm flow of any homestead, it makes the space seem more capacious than it already is. A partition wall is generally a semi-translucent or see through object that creates a transparent visual barrier that is purely psychological. It works best in apartments and studio homes. The partition wall below is a prime example of this phenomenon.
With the concept of small homes and apartments, open kitchens have been taking the design genre with a storm. Now with these kitchens, there comes a small eating space that is isolated, small and acts as a formal dining area for the residents of that space. How you embellish the details of this space can make or break your interior design. The interior below is a perfect articulation of a typical nook, making it seem grand, yet casual at the same time.
Another roller blading trend that has taken the world by storm. Where before we used to make do with trolleys, the advent in media tech has demanded design innovation. Thus, the concept of media wall was born, and is still going strong and steady. There are uncountable ways you can make your media wall an inspiration and the image below is one of them.
Innovation in construction industry has led to the availability of a plethora of materials that can be used in the design genre. Glazed and glossy products seem to be trending the market charts all over the world, but it is how you interlace these materials into a specific design that can make your interiors unconventional.
Another new concept that is not as commonplace as a media wall or a partition wall, but all the more effective. It is a trick to enhance the aesthetics of any space and make it seem better than it is. Most of the time, it is used on boring elements such as drab walls or common counter spaces.
