As we enter 2024, the world is prioritizing sustainability and comfort, which leaves the majority of us wondering, what design choices will endure and remain timeless for the years ahead?
We caught up with Focal Interiors, a local premier interior design firm with nearly 13 years of experience in Qatar to find out.
Can you share insights on the latest furniture styles and interior designs that are expected to gain popularity in 2024?
In 2024, we’re looking forward to a stronger focus on bringing nature indoors with the Biophilic design trend. Picture indoor gardens and big windows flooding spaces with natural light.
Get ready for the comeback of Maximalism, urging homeowners to get creative with mixing and matching.
Expect furniture with arches, curves, and organic shapes, along with soft lines, to gain popularity in the coming years.
Minimalism and functionality will stay in style, creating a sense of calm and simplicity with clean lines, tidy spaces, and a neutral color palette.
What are the upcoming color trends for 2024, and how can they be incorporated into a home or office space?
Neutral colors are timeless and always fashionable. They can be enhanced by incorporating pastel or blush color palettes, as well as earthy tones and muted palettes, which are expected to become even more popular. Colors inspired by nature, such as saturated, shimmering, or acidic tones, dark shades, bold combinations, blue and contrasts, are also gaining popularity.
Are there any specific materials or finishes that you anticipate being popular in interior design in 2024? How can these be utilized effectively?
In this era where rapid technological advancements are changing the way we live, smart homes and offices will become more and more popular by integrated technology with decor.
Voice-controlled lighting, automated window treatments, and AI-powered home assistants will become modern standard features.
Additionally, eco-friendly materials such as rattan, bamboo, cane, natural stones, reclaimed woods, organic fabric and low environmental impact products will become more popular in interiors.
Are there sustainable and eco-friendly design practices that will be emphasized in 2024? How can clients integrate these into their projects?
With the current awareness on sustainability, the integration of recycled materials, energy-efficient appliances, and durable lighting into new projects is encouraged. To promote indoor air quality, it is advisable to use low-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints and finishes. Additionally, incorporating upcycling, repurposing, and utilizing handmade products can effectively contribute to reducing environmental impact.
What are some innovative storage solutions or space-saving ideas that clients might find beneficial in 2024?
Maximize space efficiently by using multi-functional furniture and integrating hidden rooms or storage spaces. Popular storage solutions include smart installations and creative ideas like utilizing the space under stairs, beds with built-in storage, convertible desks, and benches doubling as bookshelves. Expect a growing popularity of these innovative storage solutions.
