HI-TECH STYLE IN INTERIOR
If you enjoy the coldness of shiny metal, glass and plastic, appreciate modern technology, then you're truly a fan of hi-tech style. Interiors in high-tech style are characterized by an abundance of glass, metal, plastic and media/computer devices.
High-tech style is the newest of all. The style in the design of public and residential interiors came into being in the last third of the 20th century. It took its origin from the design of industrial premises. High-tech style is based on the popularity of science fiction cinema and literature and, of course, the emergence of ultra-modern materials.
Characteristics of high-tech style:
• minimalism & rationality
• cold, light colors
• straight lines and angles
• lack of ornaments and floral motifs
• prevalence of concrete, plastic, glass, metal
• inclusion of pipes, valves, air ducts into the interior
• use of metallic colors and finishes with luster
• variety of lighting, LED and concealed lighting
• plenty of modern technology
Textiles, drapery, carved details and an abundance of cushions are out of place in hi-tech interior. Floral motifs are very rarely used in this style.
Although clear shapes and angles dominates, some pieces of furniture and accessories can have smooth, but unusual shapes resembling space or technological/industrial style.
Use of high-tech style
High-tech style is often chosen when a large space is available. But if the room is small, you need to plan the design to visually expand the space. That's why hi-tech style often uses mirrors that "push" the walls. Small, not flat screen TV will look ridiculous in high-tech room. For such space you need a large LCD/ plasma TV or home cinema.
The living room can be combined with home office, because any computer and media devices blend harmoniously with the high-tech interior.
The main colors are cool gray and white. However, bright colors with metallic gloss serve as excellent accents. For these purposes use neon green, orange, red and black.
It is preferably use smooth and glossy floor covering: glossy laminate or linoleum, ceramic tiles.
Avoid wallpaper with floral motifs, checked and stripped patterns. For walls, you can choose plain wallpaper or use glossy mirror panels.
Furniture should be glossy, light and laminated. Compact wall units, shelves, TV stands and cabinets with a glossy sheen fit well the hi-tech interior.
Furniture can be decorated with chrome accents and glass; it may be shelves, coffee tables, TV cabinets, etc.
Upholstered furniture has one-color upholstery. It can be a fabric or leather, but preferably smooth and shiny.
Chairs or armchairs in the dining room can be plastic, including transparent models.
A few pieces of furniture with bizarre shapes will become wonderful decoration of the room. Use unusual and unique chair, original coffee table and more.
Accessories and decor
High-tech style interiors have no use for additional decor. After all, plenty of light, chrome and glossy surfaces perfectly match any interior. But if the room lacks comfort and coziness, you can use the original floor and table lamps, made of metal, glass and plastic. Surrealist paintings, metal statues, original glass decor add extra glamour and urban chic.
