New Year, New Gear: From Storage To Hardware To Lighting

ProSource | 1/6/2016 | Project Tips

It’s 2016! The new year brings with it new options in interior design. From clever storage ideas to modern hardware and lighting choices, here are our top picks in new gear for your home.

Modern Storage

If we can build the internet and social media platforms that connect people around the globe, surely we can find ways to organize our homes that meet not only our functional requirements, but look good too.

Enter a new series of storage options that clear the counters and work double duty, so that you don’t have to.

  • Foldaway desks that open up to reveal an entire office with enough space for even the most resourceful entrepreneur. When folded, they become a beautiful piece of furniture.
  • Bookcases are not just for the library anymore. The latest trend of incorporating furniture pieces into kitchens and bathrooms lends itself well to additional storage space. Why not bring in a wood bookshelf in a complimentary finish to store cookbooks and display antique pitchers and china.
  • Thanks to Don Draper, rollaway carts have made a comeback. And they work in every room in the house from the kitchen to the patio to the garage, adding extra storage where it’s needed, and removing it when space is of the essence.
  • Ladders are not just for working. And these finished pieces don’t belong stored away in the garage. These are perfect for displaying extra blankets in a living room, scarves or shoes in a bedroom, or towels in the bathroom.
  • Today’s kitchens and bathrooms take advantage of every square inch of space. Fit that skinny space between the fridge and wall with a pull out shelf for storing canned goods.

A Quick Face Lift

Small changes can have a big impact on the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Ditch the stainless steel for a fresh, new look with kitchen cabinet hardware options in oil-rubbed bronze, brushed nickel or chrome faucets, handles and knobs.

All are modern options that can create drama and bring your room up to date for the new year. Try mixing metals, such as brass or copper and chrome, for another modern look.

Light Up The New Year

The latest trends for home interior design include seamless lighting that doesn’t get in the way of your design aesthetic, and more creative lighting that serves as a focal point for your room.

  • Recessed lighting provides ample light while melding seamlessly with whatever design style you’re incorporating, whether traditional or modern. With a mix of other lighting, recessed lights set a bright mood and create a sense of comfort in any zone, whether reading, working, relaxing in front of the TV, or displaying artwork.
  • Chandeliers aren’t just for the dining room anymore. With a little ingenuity and an eye for design, they make unique lighting options for every space from kids rooms to bathrooms. Add crystals or other contemporary details that match the style of your room.
