After a year as stylish as 2015, it’s hard to imagine that anything could top it. But if Houzz’s predictions of the 25 biggest design trends of the upcoming year turn out to be true, we’re in for a real treat.
Black Stainless Steel
The most popular appliance colors seem to change every few years — remember the days of pastel ovens? — and now it looks like polished stainless steel is on the way out. Instead of gleaming silver appliances, Houzz predicts that sleek black stainless steel is the trend of the future.
Formal Dining Rooms
We are beyond ready for sit-down family meals to make a comeback, and thankfully, Houzz reports that more homeowners are opting to keep their formal dining rooms instead of converting them into media rooms or offices. Here’s hoping they’re all as stylish as the pale purple number here.
Heated Entryway Floors
When you think of heated floors, bathrooms are usually the only room that comes to mind, but bringing that technology into the entryway is beyond brilliant, especially during the winter, according to Houzz. Just imagine the bliss of stepping out of your snowy boots onto a nice toasty floor.
Statement Bathroom Mirrors
A plain rectangular mirror certainly gets the job done, but Houzz predicts that 2016 will be the year of the statement mirror, and we are so on board. There’s no denying how much this singular detail can add to an oft-overlooked space like the bathroom. Don’t believe us? Just check out this before and after.
Bidets have never really caught on in the United States, but now that high tech toilets can come with a bidet feature, they’re slowly rising in popularity. Houzz reports that 5% of master baths now have a bidet, and if their popularity continues to grow, the number could climb even higher throughout the year.
Tech-less Living Rooms
Tech-filled homes certainly aren’t going anywhere, but according to Houzz, more and more families are opting to keep their family rooms unplugged in order to facilitate more family time. This stunning digital-free living room is proof that a house can look smart without being full of gadgets.
