The unprecedented increase in demand for housing in Andorra and its relation to interior design

Some of you ask us how to carry out a reform or intervention in the Andorran lands. As you know, the team of architects and interior designers of Molins Design also offers its services in this area surrounded by mountains. For this reason, and due to the increasing demand for housing in the Principality, we have prepared a list with the golden keys to interior design in Andorra.

LIVING IN ANDORRA: YES OR NO?

Andorra is one of the smallest countries in the world, surrounded by beautiful mountains and an idyllic environment for snow and hiking lovers. A country that, in turn, offers one of the best tourist and commercial offers in our surroundings.

Its real estate market has grown exponentially in recent months, especially since the arrival of the pandemic in our lives. Hence, the interest of Spaniards in moving to the next country is greater and, at present, a matter of debate. 

The truth is that the Andorran taxation is nowadays much more competitive than the Spanish one. The tranquility and security offered by the country, as well as the virtues of its health and its schools, both public and private, are sufficient reasons for some families to decide to cross the Pyrenees and establish their home in Andorra.

INTERIOR DESIGN ANDORRA: KEYS TO A RENOVATION

The list we have prepared becomes a perfect guide with the rules to keep in mind before tackling a reform or new construction in the Principality.

Below, we explain in depth some of the keys to interior design in homes and apartments near Andorra la Vella:

1.- PREDILECTION FOR MOUNTAIN ARCHITECTURE

Undoubtedly, the interior design of houses in Andorra is closely linked to mountain architecture. Elements such as natural wood, living rooms with fireplace or rustic style kitchens make sense in the vast majority of interventions in the Principality.

But just because it is a mountain interior design, does not mean that it is a traditional and rustic style. Unlike what we may think, classic and modern can coexist without conflicting. In fact, in our latest architecture and interior design projects for mountain homes, we combine contemporary style with rustic notes. An interior design that, if taken care of to the smallest detail, can be comfortable, practical and cozy. 

2.- COMFORT AND WARMTH HAND IN HAND WITH AESTHETICS

In contemporary style houses we look for an architecture based on modernity and functionality. That is to say, it is opted for the construction or renovation of much more practical housing, while aesthetic. Hence the main objective is to recreate a space of light and timeless lines, with open spaces and adaptable to our daily needs. But, also, with a decoration of the most careful and adapted to our tastes. 

Derived from the health pandemic and generational changes, the comfort and warmth of a home is paramount. In fact, in our latest interventions we try to solve the dichotomy of building a house that is our refuge, but at the same time has open spaces in which we can feel free.

3.- CHOICE OF NATURAL MATERIALS

Stone and wood are the materials that characterize the interior design of any house in Andorra. The truth is that most houses and apartments in the area combine perfectly the use of natural materials, which combine perfectly with the context.

4.- USE OF RUSTIC, COMFORTABLE AND PRACTICAL FURNITURE.

The furniture adopts a traditional and classic style, so that wood is once again the protagonist in the vast majority of accessories and elements. However, the aim is for this furniture to be comfortable, practical and multifunctional. That is to say, that they can be used for more than one task and that we can adapt them according to our needs.

5.- TIMELESS, FRESH AND SIMPLE DECORATIONS

The trend in mountain home decoration tends to be modern-inspired, straight-cut and fresh style. Simplicity takes special importance here, becoming the protagonist in furniture, accessories and textiles. All this, well combined with antique wooden floors, beams on the ceilings or stone or brick cladding. At this point, the important thing is to find a peaceful refuge with a cozy and functional atmosphere.

The chromatic line that is usually chosen for this type of rustic or mountain houses has much to do with the palette of light and neutral colors. The combination of white with earth or ocher tones is always a success.

What is intended here is to achieve a chromatic balance in which we feel comfortable, calm and at peace with ourselves. For this, we can combine the furniture with fabrics such as cotton, leather and linen.
