There is no doubt that many homeowners like to make a statement when it comes to their living space. Whether it is through bright colours, statement wallpaper or simply some cool shapes and designs. When looking at the top trends for 2022 we are definitely seeing a wide range of these statements appearing from various designers. In this blog we look at how colour, texture, shape and design can update a room for minimal spend.
Colour is very personal and can have a real effect on a room. By far the most popular colour trend so far this year is the colour green. This colour comes in all forms from vibrant to a more subtle green that has warming undertones of yellow and orange. Whether you are a lover or a hater of this colour, even just a splash in a bathroom tile or on a cupboard is definitely giving homes that look of style. Our matte green vinyl film is a great option fo covering kitchen counters and cupboards and the metro tiles really brighten up a bathroom splashback!
We are also seeing a lot of contrast in homes which is one of the most important design principles and can really make or break the look you are after. If you're thinking about updating your colour scheme then why not take a look at our range and grab yourself a sample so you can see if the colour and style work in your space. Take a look at this Resene example using a grey palette with a contrast colour on the wall and with the bedding, giving the whole room a beautiful stylish look.
Texture - Concrete Effects
The resurgence of texture and effects in particular, limewashing – has, without question, become one of the hottest trends around. Those wishing to imitate the look of Mediterranean or concrete walls and floors are in luck, because it's a look that's very simple to create and is fabulous. We have a range of concrete products that are perfect for walls, floors and furniture. Get inspired!
Blocks and Lines
Blocks of colour and patterns can really make a statement in a room and often it’s just about visualising the idea and having the courage to do it. Our wallpaper and sticky back plastic are an affordable way to create these blocks of colour and can be removed from a wall quickly so ideal for renting and kid’s bedrooms. For example it could be a block of colour behind a bed to frame the headboard or above a fireplace to make a statement in a room. Wherever you decide, easy to use premium products will not only stand the test of time but are easy to apply and within budget.
Geometric wall designs are ideal for those who like a little more structure and uniformity in their spaces. Squares, triangles, circles, diamonds and hexagons are all up for grabs and often work best when repeated in multiple places and at different scales throughout your space. This is where vinyl film can really come into its own, enabling you to add a splash of your chosen geometric pattern on furniture, table tops and accessories.
With money getting tighter in the household budget it is not always possible to renovate an entire room but with these statement hacks you can really make a difference. Don’t be shy, get some inspiration online and have a play - you never know what you might create!
