2020 has fundamentally changed the way we live, work and entertain. As a result, it's also changed the way we build our homes.
In contrast to the last few years of interior design trends, the features in high demand now have less to do with aesthetic and more to do with livability. It's about more than your terrazzo flooring, neutral colour palettes, timber cladding or retro homewares — in 2020, true style lies in functional, beautiful homes that are a joy to live in.
To find out the latest design trends and hottest features our customers are selecting in their dream homes right now, we spoke to our very own Metricon design manager Ricky D’Alesio and Studio M manager Marissa Bonacci.
At the beginning of 2020, 61 per cent of our customers told us a separate study was important to them, so you can only imagine how much demand has spiked for the home office following COVID-19 lockdowns.
No longer settling for the study nook or small space, D’Alesio says home buyers across all life stages now want dedicated workspaces.
