Gone are the days of cookie-cutter homes and bulk Target decor finds. While there is nothing inherently wrong with either of those things, some younger generations just have new ideas. And one of those younger generations is millennials. This group of individuals has long been known for the desire to break out of any given mold. They march to the beat of their own drum. That inclination toward uniqueness even extends to millennial home design.
There is a unique flair characteristic of millennial aesthetics. And they make sure to make that aesthetic quietly well-known. If you are a millennial looking to revamp your home, you likely already know what you want. However, if you are working on a home for a millennial, you may appreciate a few quick tips. So, we have collected some core basics of millennial home design to help you out.
When it comes to millennial home design, the simpler, the better. Generally, millennials are not fans of the excessive decor many of us know and love. They gravitate more toward a minimalistic decor approach.
Bringing the outside in is key. Well, figuratively, not literally. Millennials appreciate a slight roughness to texture and color. Additionally, muted and naturally inspired colors reign supreme.
Is that cabinet just a cabinet? Or does it have nifty, space-saving pull-outs and drawers? If the latter is the case, then we have a winner. Millennials appreciate making the most out of any space. And if something (like custom cabinetry) can function in a multi-purpose capacity, why not do it?
Playing With Color
Contrasting and bold colors are in. Millennials appreciate playing with color to create vivid and stunning spaces. One way they accomplish this is by pairing dark cabinetry with a lighter countertop. And bonus points if that counter is stone, which has its own particular appeal among millennials.
Additionally, the use of brightly colored mosaic wall tiles is popular in bathrooms and kitchens.
Opt for recycled materials whenever possible. That even goes for countertops. Some viable alternatives here would be quartz or recycled glass countertops. Bonus points if you can combine the ecologically friendly countertop in a lighter color to match the richly colored cabinets.
