Below are the top design trends for senior living in 2020, according to Studio SIX5 from Austin, Texas.
This is a simple way to incorporate unique biophilic elements into a design, and indoor plants can help to bring life and personality into spaces.
- Artisanal Elements
2020 means more wall coverings, room dividers, light pendants, and furniture that provide a space with a handmade feeling with decorative fringe, rope, cane, and woven textures. There will also be more consideration that is given for artisanal dining experiences and menus.
- Performance Fabrics
Fashion has finally caught up to senior living by using performance fabrics. The options that are going to mimic certain specialty fabrics like woven wool, corduroy, and velvet will increase.
- Age-neutral Designs
Multigenerational and multifunctional spaces provide flexibility. Communities will begin to add design elements that appeal to wide age ranges, with features that will meet the expectations and needs of the staff, residents, and visitors.
- Art Deco-inspired Modernism
The senior-friendly design is going to reflect inspiration from Bauhaus and Art Deco designs with color blocks and bold geometrics. The designs have organic shapes and firm cushions, which are increasing popularity.
- Smart Everything
The integration of smart technology into the design, like furnishings and lights, and health monitoring is going to be expanded on by using wearable technology. There will also be keyless entry locks by using the smartphones of the resident.
- Resimmercial Design
This will be able to incorporate elements of work and live into a design for a senior living community. The caregivers and visitors are already starting to bring commercial needs into residential areas. The operators will be able to support this by providing remote working environments within the community areas and not just inside of the residential units.
- Black and White
This is a timeless dynamic duo. The operators will be able to pair them together to be able to create a high contrasted statement, or they can use it to be a bold neutral backdrop for various spaces.
- Mellow Warmth
The usage of rich colors and hues that just shout warmth like burnt orange, terra cotta, bold, monochromatic palettes, and colored gems will begin to increase.
- Anything Goes
2020 is going to be all about incorporating preferred styles, whatever it may be, and then making it fit into a brand to be distinguished within the marketplace.
