Interior design never sleeps and each year dedicated designers, interior enthusiasts, and people who are simply astonished by the beauty offered by design, can enjoy innovations and exchange new ideas on uprising trends. 2019 will be no exception and the interior design world has already shaped a few commonly preferred patterns in design.

You certainly don’t need to be a professional interior designer to benefit from the creative ideas from the field. Regardless of whether you have decided to spice up your TV lounge with a slick and modern TV stand in a Scandinavian or Minimalist design or you have made a family decision to change the whole atmosphere at home, there is always something for those in search of change when it comes to interior design. It may be difficult to spot the perfect design style to fitting of your preference and style as there is a range of alternatives and combinations available on the market.

However, a look into the interior design trends of 2019 may be useful in creating the ultimate home atmosphere, which will combine functionality, aesthetics, and comfort into one. Let’s look into what the year has in store for us from an interior design perspective!

Black is Well… The New Black

The black color has kept its leading position in the list of top colors to use and will be one of the trending colors of 2019, especially when it comes to designs in the kitchen. Darker cabinets will be especially lucrative from a design perspective, adding an alternative feel to the normally associated with bright colored kitchens. Although it may not be the best choice for a space without an abundance of light, open space and large windows.

For those who appreciate this color for its richness and its promising ability to create a modern setting, the black and white Copenhagen TV stand can be the perfect addition to the living room to create a synchronized style linking the kitchen with your living room. We do however recommend limiting the use of blacks and heavy dark colors that tend to optically shrink living spaces. Darks should be used in moderation and when used strategically can really highlight fine or interesting elements within your home.

Design Going Back to Nature

The natural design tendency is nothing new on the list regarding interior design trends and it is surely here to stay. The comfort that natural products can provide is unmatched, making wood products and furnishings a highly valued gem in the world of design. Wooden floorboards, handmade lounge tables, timber ceilings, and wooden kitchens will all be included in 2019’s interior design trends.

If you are looking for that natural look and you have selected the perfect wooden flooring, try matching it with the simplicity and functionality of the white Copenhagen TV Stand. The clean and minimal style of the TV cabinet is the ideal addition to a natural looking atmosphere, enhanced by the gentle glass shelves and high gloss lacquered front panels.

Functional and Compact Furnishings

Furniture will no longer be looked at purely from an aesthetic perspective. On the contrary, the functionality behind design will be as equally important, putting more pressure on furniture to go through the test of professional designers. Limited spaces are a common issue with new architecture and the furniture of 2019 will be highly adaptive and flexible, having multiple purposes in the living space.

When it comes to choosing the best TV stand considering this new trend, think about functionality in terms of space and storage. One of the most commonly seen drawbacks of standard TV cabinets is the limited storage space provided. The TV stands may be a piece of art themselves but functionality may not be top level. The Roskilde TV stands have been designed with special attention to storage, providing two spacious compartments and a central open area, which can also incorporate additional media and storage.

Marble Accessories and Mini Furniture

Marble will be actively entering the homes of those fond of a luxurious lifestyle. Even if your home is not the ultimate deluxe destination, small marble tables or marble tops can be easily implemented in the interior without breaking the bank. Marble enriches the interior with a sense of sophistication and superiority, while at the same time provides a feel of simplicity. The market provides a range of marble imitations that will create a similar effect without requiring substantial investments for your home renovation project.

Metal Finishings Will be Trending

Metal will be increasingly present in home interiors during 2019, especially in alternative versions, which are likely to be rich in colors such as silver, gold, brass, or copper. Metal accessories will be extremely popular, along with furniture with encrusted metal parts that add a mild reminder of the beauty of the material. The material may be a basic one but once it goes through the prism of the designer, its value can significantly grow.

A great way to add metal to your interior is through the addition of metal handles on your TV stand or kitchen cabinets. An artistic metal accessory placed on top of your TV stand can also work its magic if complemented accordingly with the surroundings.

Ceilings Entering the Design Arena

Rarely do we come across ceilings as a point of focus when it comes to interior design. However, ceilings are making an entrance and are about to burst into colors this year, with statement ceilings becoming the “must have” in design. We will be seeing more and more lacquered, wallpapered, or artistically painted ceilings in 2019, serving as the cherry on the cake from a designer’s perspective. Ceilings are a powerful tool to use in changing the dimensions of a room. Certain ceiling colors can play around with the visualization of a room, making it look smaller, shorter, taller, or larger to the observer.

If you are looking to introduce some diversity in your living space or adopt a certain interior design style, play around with a few points from the list of top 2019 trends in design. You will be surprised to see that little change in design can result in maximum results!
