Interior design trends are always changing, which is why it is often better to style your home to match the homeowner’s wants, needs, and personality. By creating a bespoke interior design that reflects who you are as a person, while increasing the functionality to cater to your needs, you’ll be creating the ideal home for you and your family. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t take inspiration from current trends!
In the North Shore, the interior design trends are all about minimalistic elegance. More and more homeowners are opting for an open-plan space, knocking down walls and merging their kitchen, dining, and living areas. This creates an airy, light-filled interior, that looks and feels larger and less confined. Homeowners are also using window casings to increase their ventilation and adding more sliding doors to create a streamlined indoor-outdoor flow.
Some homeowners are taking this a step further by creating exterior rooms such as outdoor kitchens. By blurring the lines between inside and outside, your kitchen and your living room, you can achieve a multifunctional space ideal for all occasions.
When it comes to finishings and furnishings, natural timbers and cool colours are all the buzz. Homeowners in the North Shore are staying away from colourful interiors and moving towards single colour kitchen appliances and bathroom fittings, creating a simple yet elegant aesthetic.
Your single-colour bathroom can be given an extra flair by using matte finishes on door handles and tapware, and by creating contrast between your walls and floor tiles. A feature wall is another great way to inject some of your own personality into these rooms.
Whether you are wanting to create some extra space or are wanting to live in an elegant modern home, our experienced North Shore interior designers can help. We know each project is unique and will ensure to provide you with advice to match your personal wants and needs, while taking into consideration the current trends.
As no two interior design projects are exactly the same, there is no fixed rate for interior designers. However, interior designers generally charge an hourly rate that can fluctuate from $100 to $1000, depending on the scope of your project and the amount of detail it requires.
Having completed countless interior renovations in the North Shore and across New Zealand, the Refresh Consultant know the most important thing is to understand exactly what the homeowners are looking for. This is why our interior designers will always start by figuring out what is important to you and why.
Once we are on the same page, our interior designers will create bespoke renderings of your project, providing you with multiple options before you settle on anything. The great thing about the design phase is that you can make as many changes as you want before moving on to build.
These concepts are then developed further into detailed working drawings that will be used to gain council consent if required. Note that Refresh takes care of all of this for you, providing a start-to-finish service, from the very first sketch, to the installation of the final finishing.
When you are ready to turn the interior design into reality, our Renovation Consultants will get started on the build phase. We’ll act as your single point of contact throughout the project, managing all trades on your behalf. Refresh is known for completing projects on time, within budget, and to the highest of standards, and your interior design project will be no different.
