    Interior designing: Trend of the 21st century


    The interior design of a place- be it home or office, defines the feel and identity of it. You can take a large downtown apartment and make it look like a posh, lavish working space/office with the correct tools and interior decoration strategies. What should be the approach with the interior decoration for a place depends solely on the purpose of the place and usage of space and most importantly the inherent philosophy of the people residing in that place.


    With clever usage of space, accessories, light projection, ventilation system and interior plantation any space can be turned into a beautiful home or a productive office. Right projection of light and ventilation system is very important for healthy and productive life. Using glass walls and ceilings can solve these problems while making the home or office gorgeous and different.


    While all of these are very important when it comes to interior designing, furniture placement, space allotment and interior plantation cannot be underestimated as these are the factors which develop the unique feel of the place. In an office, the right sitting arrangement and enough space can not only increase productivity for the employees but also send a great message to the clients who are visiting your office.


    Office and home interior designing in the mega cities and business hubs like New York, Chicago, Hong kong, Sydney has dramatically changed and set tones on eco-friendly designs. While it does not only reflects their green gestures but also it increases the aesthetic beauty and productivity. Usage of photovoltaic glasses, advanced cooling systems and interior plantations are pretty common features of this new trend. Interior plantation or landscaping can sound a bit too much to manage but with the natural and artificial flowers and plants combination it gets trendy and easy to manage. While studies show that all these ingenious interior designs can increase the productivity, more and more corporate offices are focusing on them.


    If you take a look at the top architectural marvels that are being built at Chicago, Berlin and Tokyo, you will see that the two major philosophies that embrace today’s interior designing ideas are interaction and natural touch. The primary purpose of life itself is communicating with fellow workers, community members, family members, clients and every other life we come to face every day , no wonder it comes down to interior designs too. While people are getting too busy for living outdoor lives in the outdoors, the line between indoors and outdoors are getting pretty thin.


    The design trends change and it can change fast. What is hip and trendy today, it will definitely not in the coming years, but the true answer lies in the objectives of the designs. In Today’s world, it is productivity, healthy living and over all happy living we are looking for and the interior designs are invested in that.
