2020 has been an exceptional year in which most of us spent the majority of our time self-isolating at home. For many of us, this has lead to a renewed sense of importance assigned to our homes. Home has become the place where work, leisure and relaxation are combined into one. With most of our time spent indoors, we have developed a stronger appreciation for the space that surrounds us. Life in the pandemic is a perfect opportunity to refresh your living space. It is a time for a change. We have compiled 5 new features that will elevate your renovation game. Our choice of natural stone will be sure to bring any architectural vision to life.
If you are looking to create a peaceful vibe in your new space, integrating organic elements is a fantastic idea for 2021!
Bringing Nature into the Home
If you are looking to create a peaceful vibe in your new space, integrating organic elements is a fantastic idea for 2021! A nature-inspired space creates a fresh environment to live and work in and has been rising in popularity over the past few years. Given the extra time we are spending at home, natural elements will be more important than ever over the next couple of years.
We have seen nature incorporated through greenery and house plants; however, the natural touch extends to other areas such as wooden furniture and beautiful stone flooring like our Pietra Grey Slab Marble. Bringing in these natural elements is a breath of fresh air at home, creating a more inviting and inspiring space.
Inspiring Working Spaces
With ‘working from home’ becoming the norm over 2020, a work environment that inspires is more important than ever. While the home office may have been overlooked as a part of renovations in past, the movement towards more flexibility in work means that now is the perfect time to invest in your home working space!
Take your home office to the next level with a natural stone desk, like our Babylon White stone. This white design, with striking grey and light pink tones, is not only elegant and timeless but provides a clean, gorgeous look to your home office or workspace, giving you all the motivation you need to power through your workday!
Incorporating the Kitchen into the Home
Kitchen islands create a perfect central space for cooking and entertaining. By reimagining the typical kitchen layout, these islands allow for the kitchen to be more integrated with the rest of the home. A stunning stone benchtop is not only a beautiful accent to the interior, but is a functional part of the kitchen itself, as it can be used as a space for baking and entertaining, and can even increase the value of your home!
Kitchen islands also create a new openness within central living spaces, which interior designers strive to achieve. By combining living and dining into one, they not only give the appearance of a bigger space but also bring the family together.
Exciting Bathroom Designs
New bathroom renovations are beginning to include fun elements to make the bathroom a more playful, interesting space. We are seeing lots of trends that focus on reinventing the typical bathroom space, including pops of colour and different textures. Taking these new trends as inspiration, you can add some more interesting elements into your bathroom renovations by opting for a stunning grey marble like our Storm Stone for a beautiful contrast to a primarily white bathroom interior. Or experiment with textures and colour with a warm, dimensional wall tile to add some interest.
Outdoor Entertaining is Back!
Heading into the New Year, it is important not to forget the outdoor entertaining areas that really help elevate the home. Elevate your outdoor setting by creating a sophisticated paved entertaining area to house your barbecue or outdoor furniture. A durable Travertine stone adds a refined yet relaxed feel to your outdoor entertaining space, perfect for all your summer BBQs!
