The era of technological revolution started in the latter half of the 2000’s. It marked the beginning of styles such as Minimalism, Industrial and Scandinavian. Bit by bit, small aspects of interior designing were evolving into a better and more nuanced counterparts. This revolution leads to an era of advancement that greatly benefits the design and construction industry, which the style is more to sleeker, trendier and more stylistic.
There are a few ways in which this advancement has revolutionized our interior designs, let’s check!
1) Better Lighting
The era of technological revolution gave us a wide array of choices where lighting is concerned. During the previous time, there were only Edison bulbs, tube lights and then fluorescents. Companies like Phillips provide us a whole range of energy efficient LED lights which will not only curb that long electrical bill, but also give us more freedom with design. From strip lights to halogens, there are so many options for our contemporary interior designs.
2) Better Materials
Of course, materials have always seen a gradual change and evolution from time to time. We now have wood composites, laminates, tempered glass, mild density fiber wood, glass boxes, organic concrete and so much more. The material palate is no longer a finite board. It now offers a great amount of choice that has forever revolutionized the interior design industry.
3) More choices in interior structures
With the constant innovation bought in by the technological revolution, we have more choices in how to arrange our interiors and morph the structures accordingly. Domes and arches are not the only long span structures anymore. We have solid beams, inverted beams, T-beams and etc. This especially benefits the commercial and retail interior design.
4) Clean articulation
Nowadays, we have technology which make sure our vision is perfectly articulated in reality. Laser cutting has made it easier to get meticulous and intricate designs in clean and fast ways without ever hurting the construction crew in the process.
5) Cutting edge technological interventions
Automation has become the new norm. We now have motion sensors that control the lights, smoke detectors that go off when the food is burning and water conserving appliances that make sure our carbon footprints are controlled. These innovations have definitely added to our interior designs in a futuristic way.
