They are an art and investment that graces the walls of the living space for years.

Incorporation of kitchen islands with seating space into kitchen decoration is one of the most common trends in 2016. Unlike the traditional homes where the kitchen’s sole purpose was cooking, today’s kitchens have many purposes. A well designed and furnished kitchen island not only works as the perfect kitchen décor, but it also provides additional seating space where the family can have breakfast at.


  1. Use of sectional sofas

Homes are now opting to create spaces where the owners can hang out with their friends and family in a comfortable way, unlike in the case of a formal living room.


  1. The use of statement light fixtures

In many cases, light fixtures are known to be exceptional pieces of art. One can have some very simple living space, but the moment an artistic and stylish light fixture is added to it, it automatically boosts the room’s atmosphere and presence.
