2019 St Albans interiors

What might 2019’s interior design trends bring to your St Albans or Harpenden home? The New Year is the time to make plans for your interior space. Are you ready to embrace the cosmos or maybe consider some more scalloped edges, fish scale tiles, concrete bathrooms, nude colours and dark kitchens?

Constellations and stars are, some say likely to become a popular décor feature. Designers have been searching the skies for inspiration and think sophisticated astronomy and zodiac patterns, star-strewn plates, galaxy murals, galactic surfaces and cosmic tile work could become on trend.

There are also plenty of Scallops and Scales to be seen, some are calling it the ‘Blue Planet effect’ because this season’s interior looks like a dive deep under the sea.  From scalloped furniture to fish scale tiles and all things curved, wavy and ocean-inspired. Mermaid Tiles are part of this trend from fan-shaped fish scale tiles to complex quatrefoils, tiles are taking on more fluid forms with rounded edges and irregular shapes. These can come together to create striking effects in modern St Alban's or Harpenden bathrooms, cloakrooms, kitchens and even hallways.

Concrete is also increasingly becoming a real material for bathrooms. Its functional utilitarian surface gives a strong industrial feel and makes a particularly good choice for bathrooms due to its strength and versatility. New print and staining techniques allow concrete to be used as a blank canvas to have fun with. It can also be polished down into a very smooth surface. 

The latest interiors trend is barely there, warm, earthy neutrals, think fleshy toned earthy jute, canvas, wool, wood and hemp alongside this the trend for darker kitchen cabinetry looks set to take centre stage.  Searches for black and navy blue kitchens are up 93% in the past six months, with matt and powdery finishes. Lots for you to play in 2019 as you reimagine your St Albans and Harpenden home interiors.
