Out with the old white on white, and in with new bold colors. Get ahead of the game and find out the hottest trends for home decor in 2018.
In an age where all of us are very ‘home proud’, many people may have also come to believe that home should feel home regardless of its decorations. The real deal is that you must take care of every bit of your house, and make sure it looks stunning and welcoming all the time.
Now let’s look at some of the hot new designs and trends you might want to use to give your home a fresh lease on life in 2018.
From splashy color palettes to bright yellow sofas and mixed metal everything, we have something that will be hot in 2018. Here’s what you need to watch:
- Light Textured Wood Flooring
Light-hued woods, including natural tones, blond and whitewashed woods as your newest flooring option for 2018.This will brighten any room of the house and hide imperfections more easily, making them a great choice for families and households with pets. Add some dimension and texture with herringbone-patterned woods to modernize the space and make a subtle statement. Wire-brushed wood pattern flooring offers a vintage appeal with a less aggressive look than a scraped look.But, if you decide to stick with dark flooring, we recommend pairing it with light colored walls and white trim for contrast.
- Concrete Accents
Tired of basic granite in your kitchen and bath? Ditch it in favor of cool concrete, and then take your design up a notch by extending the material elsewhere in your house.
Step aside, white marble –it’s concrete’s time to steal the spotlight. Already used for floors and countertops, the versatile, accessible material is now being utilized in more interesting and unexpected ways, including in-home accessories, such as pendant lighting and furniture.
- Mixed Metallic
To warm up the industrial feel or some metals, pair them with a neutral stone like marble or limestone, and look for unexpected finishes like matte black, satin brass, black nickel, and unlacquered brass. Amp up the visual interest’s another notch by layering your metals across a variety of locations, from faucets to hardware to lighting and furniture. With its red and orange tones and overall earthy hue, copper is a much-needed breath of fresh air this year.
- Natural Materials
Get in touch with nature and add some natural elements to your design scheme this year. In interior designs, there is a strong push towards eco-consciousness looking towards items that are made of sustainable materials and have a natural feel to them. Choosing natural elements and using materials that are long-lasting will result in a beautiful space and longevity that will stand the test of time.
- Vintage Lightning
Vintage light fixtures, including sconces, lanterns, pendants, and chandeliers, are making a comeback as crafty but with new technology. It is a trend that many will be shocked to see making its way back into the New Year. The vintage lights we are expecting to see will be less exposed lightning and more of vintage pendants in brass and copper finishes.
Homeowners are running with the “less is more” notion in the house and opting for more modern and minimalist furnishing. Instead of bold and busy colors, soothing, neutral color palettes are expected to reign supreme, along with soft fabrics and simple furniture pieces.
