Transparency set to be on-trend for interiors
Tuesday, 4th June 2013, Lucy Mccoy
A transparent look is set to be key for interior design this summer, according to hoteldesigns.co.uk. The style has already been spotted on the catwalks for the clothing industry and is breaking into homes as well.
Perspex heels and jackets have been seen on models and now kitchen and dining areas could be following suit. Seen as an optimum way to maximise the amount of light in a room, the use of Perspex in smaller properties could take off in a big way.
A clean, neat effect with a simple pattern is on-trend for floor tiles and rugs, with colours being kept simple and muted. Black and white accessories complement this look, making granite kitchen worktops an ideal addition to match with Perspex accessories.
Glass teapots and glass-topped dining tables have been spotted in retailers around the country, showing this trend seems to be around for the foreseeable future.
Transparency has been a long-term trend for restaurants, with time.com claiming that the idea of an open-kitchen has been appealing to ensure there are no secrets from customers.
Clear panels separating the kitchen from the dining area is one way of keeping with the transparency trend, while still having a divide between the preparation and eating areas.
