3 Great Tips for Futuristic Interior Design
Does your house look like it comes straight out of the 90s? If so, you might be due an upgrade. A good route to go down if you’re looking to freshen up your home and give it a modern edge is to choose a futuristic décor style. After all, what could be more up to date than the future?
Minimalism is a trend that has been growing in popularity over the past decade because of its futuristic image. To recreate it in your own home, start with a blank canvas. Paint all of your walls a bright white, and take out any unnecessary clutter or detail. Don’t give up on colour, however.
For furniture, stick to plain materials such as cotton and leather, and only buy unique set pieces rather than mass-manufactured sofas. A great place to look is David Philips Furniture Limited. Lighting is also crucial in creating your minimalist style. A great, inexpensive way to make your own lighting is to create low-hanging Mason jar lights. These are all the rage on the future-chic of Pinterest. For fixtures and fittings, use shiny stainless steel, aluminium and chrome, which are practical materials, which have the added benefit of looking space-age.
Your home décor won’t truly be of the future unless it’s interactive in some way. A simple way of doing this which won’t cost you a lot of money is to buy a simple projector and connect it to your laptop, turning your walls into a virtual playground.
If rain helps you sleep at night, project a website like Rainy Mood onto one of your bedroom walls, or if you want to learn how to cook your favourite dishes, project YouTube cookery tutorials into your kitchen so that you don’t splash your laptop as you learn.
Character, not Clutter
Although you should keep your space clutter-free and minimal, you don’t necessarily have to give up on colour or ornamentation. Keep your walls plain but choose an accent colour to create splashes of brightness throughout your space. A simple way to do this is to add a colour filter to your lights so that in the evenings, you can add a warm, red glow to your home without losing your simple aesthetic.
So there you have it, 3 great ways to enhance your house with futuristic home décor. So if you’ve been waiting for a style to take your fancy, hopefully this one will do the trick.
