Many developers have their own in house interior design team who are in charge of the décor in their show homes. Other developers outsource the interiors to an interior design freelancer or specialist team.
For the developer the show homes are a vital selling tool and it is important to create modern and luxurious surroundings that will hopefully persuade the public to part with their cash and buy a new property.
Of course smaller developers building just a handful of houses may also use this route in order to entice prospects to buy a property in their housing scheme. Even a builder creating a single property to sell on will want to dress the interior of the property in the best way to attract buyers.
While investing in interior design for a build may seem like extra cost that can be avoided, it can in fact be a great investment by helping your homes to sell faster and also helping you to achieve the best price for your property.
So if you're a self builder or house builder looking for ideas and the most up to date interior design trends read on, we have scouted out show homes and raided the major design magazines to bring you the biggest interior design trends ahead in 2015.

However a new modern take on bold wallpaper is back this year with some interesting materials now possible thanks to new manufacturing techniques. Expect to see new intriguing textures and materials such as woven fabric wallpapers plus embossed wallpaper that adds depth and character.
