CARMEL, Ind., Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Life today is chaotic, from busy work schedules to being connected 24/7. As a result, the need to disconnect at home has inspired an interior design detox trend, meant to bring an aura of serenity and simplicity to the home. Designers from the six, industry-leading home design brands that makeup the ELEVATE Design Collective, including Delta® Faucet, Formica Corporation, Hunter Fan, JELD-WEN®, KitchenAid® and Schlage®, share insight on how to simplify any room in the home.
"Design Detox is all about creating an environment rooted in simplicity and free from chaos and stress. Your home should provide a sanctuary from our modern hectic lifestyles," said Ted Roberts, Schlage's manager of industrial design. "Minimalist designs and décor can help you achieve this look and feel, and it can be easily accomplished by updating home accents such as door hardware, unique ceiling fans and kitchen items."
A design detox doesn't mean a space turns into something empty and cold; rather it's a way to evaluate current design influences within the home. The ELEVATE Design Collective designers suggest the following:
- Choose furniture, appliances, and even doors dominated by clean lines to help create a calming effect. From KitchenAid's refrigerator, stove and dishwasher options, to pieces like the JELD-WEN® MODA™ Door Collection, whose contemporary wood doors feature sleek lines that accentuate clean, square and rectangular décor.
- Use what would normally be considered an accent piece as a statement piece. Consider one-of-a-kind mirrors, lighting, and unique Hunter Fan designs as a muse. Upgrade fixtures with unique offerings such as the Delta brushed steel finish or the brand's industrial styles with angular silhouettes.
- Let texture take center stage by using monochromatic palettes. When it comes to color, use neutrals that shift away from cooler tones in favor of warmer shades, or off neutrals, like deep earthy tones with Southwest influences. This can easily be incorporated with updated countertops, choosing from Formica Corporation's array of options, or even by easily updating your door hardware with a finish that fits into the color palette, like Schlage's Aged Bronze offerings.
- Bring focal points back to the basics, letting a fireplace reclaim its spot and eschewing flat screen TV's that hang above them.
- Take inspiration from the everyday and bring outdoor elements inside. Create interior green spaces or utilize folding window systems that eliminate the separation between the outdoors and the interior living space.
The art of simplifying has been a part of Japanese culture for decades. As it finally makes its way to the U.S. and infiltrates the home design and décor category, consumers can step into home design retailers and find simplicity woven in throughout. The concept of design detox is something the ELEVATE Design Collective experts expect to continue to see in 2017 and beyond.
The vision to create the ELEVATE Design Collective began with Schlage, a brand of Allegion that has created stylish, innovative door hardware products for more than 95 years. Schlage recognized the opportunity to bring like-minded, home accent brands together to make a larger contribution to the interior design industry and educate influencers and consumers alike on the latest styles and trends in home design.
