New Year. New you. New looks. New digs.

By Carrie Dawson, Design Specialist, BigSteelBox Structures

At the end of every year we take a look back at the past 12 months and evaluate the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to popular interior design trends. You may find it surprising to read about design trends on our blog, but all aspects of design are very important to us when creating offices, workforce housing and other BigSteelBox Structures products.

From a design mind set, I am always intrigued to see what new and exciting design inspirations will grace the fronts of magazines. Whether it's a shout out to a past design style making its way into the 21st century or incorporating technology in a way that makes you think, "how did I ever live before this?"

Here are my top picks of what's new and exciting once again.

1. Painted trim. There's something about this design trend that will aid in the quest to make any space look grand simply by painting your trim the same colour as your walls.


2. Sculptural Lighting. Portable or fixed, it's an element that is easy to incorporate regardless of room size or type. What room doesn't need light?



3. Oversized Prints. Thinking about an accent wall? Whether it’s canvas, framed, original or print, try a large scale piece of art. Make a statement with very little clean up.


4. Knock-knock. See who's there with this smartphone activated deadbolt lock that is equipped with a motion detector that will send an image when anyone approaches your door.


5. U-socket. Most of us have an electronic device that needs daily charging via USB. Cut out the middle man and have your USB plug direct in the wall.


6. Quality, not quantity. Living simpler yet putting emphasis on what's in the space and how it functions. Below is an example of making the most of a small space, which happens to be a living quarters designed and constructed by BigSteelBox Structures.

Benefits of Building with Steel

BigSteelBoxes are built for ocean shipping and withstanding the elements, so they're much more solid, durable and stackable than trailers.
