What are our homes of the future?

It is interesting to ponder what the homes of the future will be like? Will we be space conscious,  or in space, and environmentally sensitive? What are the trends that will be shaping our housing patterns. Current trends that are shaping our homes are:

  • Our kids are staying at home longer
  • Our parents are moving into our homes
  • We are all living longer
  • Climate changes are defining how we look at our human footprint

 

Trends I see are:

  • Use of new materials for part ions and walls including wall art and stencils
  • Use of wall paper again as a feature
  • More storage solutions
  • Integration of IT solutions throughout the home and more automation
  • Environmental considerations to materials and running costs of the home
  • Frame less cabinets and and multi-tasking appliances, hand free taps and lights with sensors
  • Reclaimed, re-purposed, bespoke or one of a kind pieces mixed with modern minimalism
  • More consideration of making the home and landscape work together. More vertical gardens
