Planning on a renovation project for your home? If you’re thinking about remodeling your home next year, whether you’re planning to DIY or will be hiring a pro, now might be a good time to start planning. These are the trends that made the list from the websites that offers home remodeling and decoration projects tips that we expect to see most frequently in 2018.
Trend #1: Vibrant Colors Are Coming Back
As we all expect, neutral colors such as gray, beige and the new favorite paint color “greige,” are still the trendiest colors in terms of home design and décor. The appeal of neutral colours is not going away and is becoming more sophisticated. However, brighter colors are picking up steam in 2018. Paying attention to brighter colors throughout the home can make your furniture and decorative items pop. Floral prints and colors have always been popular as well and expect to see more floral designs that use contrasting colors next year.
Trend #2: Metallic Accents
Another trend that’s ramping up now and is destined to carry over until next year is that of metallic accents anchoring a room. It may take a more dominant role, with furnishings like coffee tables and dining tables. However, it’s very easy to overdo it when it comes to shiny surfaces. The best way is to keep things basic, such as hanging a silver-accented mirror on a wall or buying some copper end tables. Metallic touches are one of the home décor trends right now and will continue well into 2018.
Trend #3: High-Class Kitchen Elements
Today’s quartz truly delivers in style, design, and flair. It’s a popular choice for countertops as well because it goes with so many different styles. Quartz counters, lower and upper cabinets in different finishes, appliances in fun colors, layouts that promote ease of use, cement tile backsplashes will be one of the kitchen trends next year. Vintage lighting fixtures, like aged copper pendant lights, sinks made with materials like stone, copper, concrete, and granite are making a comeback and more likely to become popular in 2018.
Trend #4: Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns are trending up in the interior design space, with fascinating wallpaper prints leading the charge. There are so many ways you can incorporate geometry into your decor; it’s one of the most approachable trends and you can choose from within a price range that will work for most budgets. It can also start small with pillows or throws in geometric prints.
Trend #5: Minimalist Furniture
Minimalism, or at least its spirit, has found its way to the design world. Simple, elegant furniture pieces have been a trending home design feature for years. In 2018, the emphasis is on “clean lines, comfort and ease of use as well as finishes that are easy to care for and use. Minimalism certainly isn’t for everyone. In fact, it probably isn’t for most people. But thinking like a minimalist can be a fun little thought-experiment. For couches and chairs, look for pieces made with vinyl or faux suede fabric.
