Winter is most definitely upon us. Which means we’re all craving for a little comfort and cosiness in the home.
And that desire is reflected in current trends, which are all about making the home a little more welcoming and a lot warmer!
Here are the five interiors products and trends currently gaining popularity on the Houzz platform.
Bid farewell to chilly floorboards and cool tiles, warming textures underfoot are what’s required at this time of year.
‘Carpets’ is a rising trend on Houzz – the online community about all things interiors – with searches up by 77 per cent since spring.
When it comes to colour, it will probably come as no surprise that the two most popular shades are those perennial classics – beige and grey (thanks in no small part to Mrs Hinch and her love of all things greyscale). Also up there, more surprisingly, is blue.
Picture this: a roaring fire, a hot cup of cocoa and your all-time favourite book. Has there ever been a cosier scenario?
Which may go some way in explaining why ‘book’ and ‘library’-based search terms are on the rise among Houzz users.
Searches for ‘bookshelves’ have rise 55 per cent since June, while searches for ‘bookcases’ have increased 33% since March. Even the phrase ‘library’ has gone up 36% in the last nine months.
If your home can’t quite stretch to accommodate a library, ‘floating, ‘built-in’ and ‘ladder’ are the most popular search terms when it comes to book cases.
