Future Home: How We’ll Be Living in 10 Years (16 photos)
While it’s impossible to truly know the future, interior decorators have a few strong ideas about what’s in store for us within the next ten years, at least in terms of how we set up our homes. One key development that is emerging as millennials increasingly come of age is the decline of long-term property ownership in favor of more nomadic and urban lifestyles. Automation is also coming to define the modern home, and we can expect to see sophisticated smart kitchens and less time spent on tedious household chores in the future. Homes will become increasingly multigenerational as the traditional nuclear family model becomes more and more displaced over time. Homes will also reflect the rise of workers who work from the home rather than commuting. Interior decorators predict that these and other trends will come to define the experience of the average American home over the next ten years.
