Arlo & Jacob, designers of beautiful modern furniture, have been exploring what future living spaces will look like and how technology will be integrated. They have analysed key predictions on how this technology will transform our homes in the coming years and have illustrated the results.
They highlight the key technologies and changes to home layouts that will become most desirable in the next 20 years.
The findings may well be useful for vendors, buyers and property developers looking to invest in renovations that increase property values over time.
Their research looks at the future of living spaces such as living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms and reveals that by 2030, internal walls will become adjustable to open up spaces for multifunctional living.
Blank canvasses: Clutter will be reduced as spaces will become more minimalistic and neutrally decorated to allow people to personally augment their living space.
Adjustable spaces: As spaces continue to become multifunctional, adjustable and movable structures such as interior walls that fold away will allow spaces to be adapted to your needs.
Customisable decor: Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) will become commonplace with VR artwork, floor to ceiling wall displays, immersive experience furniture and AI assistants all coming into the home.
Timothy Newsome, Marketing Director at Arlo & Jacob says, “Technology is constantly progressing, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Living spaces such as the kitchen and living room are a big aspect of our lives, so it’s only right that AR and VR will become more integrated to improve those spaces. It’s not just entertainment features that are adjusting with the times though, things such as personalised sofas that adapt to their customers’ needs will be available by 2040. It’s really exciting to see what the future of living spaces will look like in years to come.”
