Opening the door to new ideas with textured looks and neutral tones.
From time-honored looks to an avant-garde style, the trends shaping today's residential and resimercial design are a joy for interior designers to explore. Today, we address three key elements of design: color, texture and space.
Textured surfaces provide new dimensions for trailblazing designers looking for innovative ways to amplify their designs. Those with an adventurous bent can revel in the clean canvas offered by beige tones, which invite statement pieces and bold accents. The two pair well together – layering textures and beige tones – and provide the perfect setting for on-trend, textured design.
Wilsonart opens the door to new ideas with the textured looks and neutral tones in our Wilsonart® Interiors collection that set the perfect backdrop for interior kitchen and bath cabinetry, open shelving and closet/wardrobe designs.
Texture is the New Black
Wilsonart® delivers trending textiles
Interior designers and fashion designers will agree. On-trend looks have shifted from patterned designs to textures. Savvy designers are accommodating this style by bringing seamless sensory and natural elements into the home.
Texture determines the feeling of a room from the initial glimpse. It sets the tone and visual weight of each element – and the space as a whole. Because texture can be as subtle as a whisper or bold as a train horn, it has the capability to influence the coziness and depth of a space.
"Even when the design is minimal there is warmth, the connection with the landscape's surroundings brings a sense of unity."
-ZARA HOME, INSIDE OUT COLORS
Swapping clutter with purposeful texture in shelving and cabinet areas elevates spaces and establishes a deliberate design style within any space. Add elegant touches of dimension with linen patterns such as Wilsonart's Wheat Tabby (pictured below) in coordination with a natural woodgrain cabinet to create balance within a neutral color palette. Similarly, incorporating a woven texture like Crisp Linen will help create depth and interest in cabinet interiors.
From linen to flax textile looks, the Interiors Collection offers nearly limitless texture options that add flair, functionality, fashion, craftsmanship, and cleanability to your design.
The Wonder of Walnut.
Walnut TFL helps the kitchen, office space, primary and secondary bathrooms at Fairview Slopes speak a uniform design language. In the kitchen, white upper cabinets pair effortlessly with customized TFL panels that conceal appliances. During broad daylight, the nature-inspired glow of TFL wall panels results in an office that seldom needs indoor lighting.
Beige is Back
Wilsonart® warms up neutrals
Always on trend, Wilsonart is warming up our selection of neutrals from cool whites and greys to warm beiges. Our new colors provide a timely assortment of creamy almost-whites to rich earthy colors. Beige adds a natural ambience and instant warmth, whether it's sunny or loamy. The soft colors can be layered to create a sophisticated tonal look, make a homey space, or create the backdrop for statement pieces, bold colors and accessories.
Use beige to:
Create an all-neutral space
Warm up a room
Add a natural ambiance
Create a clean and versatile canvas for any design
Pull together different design elements
Create an open, airy space with light beiges
Create a comfy, streamlined space with dark beiges
High-end open-closet composition
TFL tone meets texture in fashion-forward design
Fashion-forward designers are creating statement spaces with outward-facing and open-shelving closets. Instead of putting clothes away where no one can see them, homeowners turn a plain wall into a stunning high-fashion and high-design showcase.
They marry form and functionality in spare bedrooms and spacious master suites, and they steal the show in luxuriously large homes. Even homeowners with small spaces are incorporating ergonomic open-closet design for an open look and extra storage.
The popular look for wardrobes uses curated colors and textures that incorporate natural elements into fashion-forward spaces.
When it comes to creative composition, the design and storage possibilities are endless:
- Corner shelving
- Open cupboards
- High and low storage
- Hidden shoe storage
- Floating shelves
- Floating cabinets
- Glass doors
- Wooden crates
- Textile baskets
- Hat Boxes
No matter what arrangement designers use to create bespoke open wardrobes, the beige tones and beautiful textures of Wilsonart's TFL Collection provide the perfect high-end surface for shelving and cabinets.
In this article, we explore how Closet Envy crafted a sophisticated open storage space (pictured above) using the Wilsonart® LUJO® Collection to leverage neutral textured surfaces. The beige tones and beautiful textures of the Interiors Collection also work in harmony to provide the perfect surface for a luxurious walk-in closet.
