With all the advancements in Architectural Engineering, quality craftsmanship, and the professional touches of an interior decorator, what was once thought of as futuristic home interior design’s are now quite commonplace. Automatic dishwashers swept in almost as fast as colored T.V. Then along came the microwave, partially replacing the need for an oven. Shuddered wooden window openings were replaced with glass windows. Glass windows are now being replaced with entire glass walls, coated with a reflective material that provides ample sunlight while remaining cost efficient.
Other glass wall applications offer the occupant the availability of viewing the exterior of the residence while simultaneously providing passerby with a mirrored reflection.
Modern home interior design consists of rather bland everyday items we have come to take for granted. Manufacturing companies are increasingly engaging in providing greener, more energy efficient products to the consumers. Engineering ingenuity is bringing cutting edge technology to the home front. Regular everyday household items are becoming capable of multi-tasking, reducing the need for purchasing multiple pieces of equipment to perform different jobs, and creating more available space. Built-in cabinetry is an enormous success, creating the necessary storage space to comfortably enjoy life on the run, while at the same time making any room appear larger with more open space, creating a welcoming atmosphere for all who enter. Considering a built-in cabinet as a seating area, or daybed, can add a novel touch to a living room or Kitchen.
For individuals who live in a tropical climate year round, perhaps an open air approach to Home Interior Design would be more suitable for your needs. Enclosing the corner of the room least susceptible to trade winds in screen allows the occupant to enjoy the warmth and beauty of the surrounding exterior in a more natural setting. Allowing the Living Room to open onto the Lanai by way of removable interlocking wall panels creates a laid back, easy-going atmosphere that lets guest know they are always welcome. Erecting the house around a centrally located Feng Shui garden, offering several access points can create a balanced, relaxing ambience, enjoyable by all those fortunate enough to witness it.
Advancements in acrylic applications allow manufacturers to produce some truly eye catching conversation pieces. It has also provided home builders greater flexibility in achieving customer satisfaction. As far as home interior design is concerned, the use of acrylic offers a new, unique medium for custom construction requests. Visionary home builders could easily construct an acrylic separating wall between adjacent rooms for use as a salt water ecosystem, customizable for any configuration. Acrylic applications can be very appealing in other rooms as well. Transparent pedestal sinks enhance the appearance of any bathroom. Transparent refrigerator doors allow the consumer the opportunity to view what’s inside before deciding whether or not to open it, reducing energy consumption while maintaining cost efficiency. Adding a transparent spiral staircase will definitely create a conversation piece. Acrylic is indeed capable of changing the future of Home Interior Design as we know it.
