Brief History Of High-Tech Interior Design

‘High-tech’ is also known as advanced technology. High-tech aesthetics originated in the 1970s in the UK. It was inspired by science fiction books and films, as well as the postmodernist cultural context. In the 1980s, the new aesthetics evolved into a very popular style. The defining characteristics of the high-tech style are minimalism, functionality, and pragmatic space planning. Another distinctive features of this style are the prevalence of the latest technologies, as well as the use of metal, steel, glass, and concrete. A spectacular example of a high-tech homespace is Tom Lincoln’s futuristic home in “The Island” (2005).

Tips For Transforming Your Homespace With High-Tech Design Ideas

Create Swift, Straight Lines In Finishing, Ceiling, And Flooring

To incorporate the high-tech aesthetics at home, you should make minimalism come through all the details. It is also relevant for finishing and ceilings. The walls can be brick or concrete. Since the wallpapers add coziness to the interior, you should better replace them with painting, 3D tiles, or mirror panels. The ceiling can be suspended or tensioned by metal panels. The most aesthetically appropriate types of flooring for high-tech interiors are poured flooring, natural stone flooring, vinyl flooring, and concrete flooring. Hardwood flooring won’t play in a sleek interior, or at least one that has a natural rustic look. Parquet floors and tiles are appropriate if they are of black, grey, metallic, or black colors.

Choose The Right Color Palette

Shades of white, gray, and black create the perfect base for the high-tech interior. To create interest and diversity, you can add in your interior some blue, red, yellow, or green fitting accents. However, the minimalist base should remain the same and set the mood. Avoid using too many bright accents, otherwise, your interior may exude strong pop art vibes.

Opt For Glass, Metal And Steel

The minimalistic high-tech style is based on the prevalence of ‘high-tech’ materials. These are materials like glass, metal, steel, and plastic.


The materials that are usually used by designers for high-tech interiors are ultra-modern, sleek, and weightless. A typical ‘tech’ interior has metal glossy surfaces, and decor made of metal and steel. The use of wooden materials is a ‘no-go’.

Think Of Minimalistic And Functional Furniture

High-tech furniture should be as functional, light, and concise as possible. The optimal option would be built-in furniture. Choose one-color materials and neutral colors for upholstered furniture pieces. Opt for glass or plastic shelves, and small coffee tables with a metal surface. All furniture pieces and items should have simple laconic forms. Forget about furniture pieces made of wood, antique armchairs, textiles, and upholstery with floral patterns.

Invest In Electronics

Electronics always pull off sleek high-tech aesthetics. Modern designers implement high-end smart home technologies into the high-tech spaces. These can be automated lighting, smart kitchen appliances, home entertainment systems, smart speakers, and personalized home scenes. When turned off, smart devices with big screens look like sleek black mirrors.

Elevate The Space With Accessories

A decor in accordance with high-tech style has to be interesting yet simple. However, it can add some personality to your space. Elevate rooms with paintings in metal frames, glass or metal statuettes or vases, and suspended light structures.


Choose the statement pieces that create local points but don’t make your homespace look messy and chaotic.

Use Appropriate Lighting

Stylish yet concise lighting can be a part of high-tech decor. Choose bulbs, linear pendant lamps, dimmers instead of quirky chandeliers and floor lamps. Table lamps with lampshades won’t fit in the technological aesthetics.

You can easily create a high-tech interior by following these key tips. Adding some high-tech accents to the existing interior can elevate its design and enhance your living experience.
