The New Year has started and you may be considering a little makeover to refresh your home. These particular trends are gaining traction for a reason and they will bring a whole new level of style to your home this year. From the kitchen to the bedroom, here are the home interior trends for 2018!
Dark countertops will take kitchens by storm in 2018. The style is perfect in a modern kitchen by bringing sleek elegance to the room, and even in a traditional kitchen that’s cozy and rustic. If you’re entertaining and have appetizers laid out, the dark counter will make bright plates pop. Countertops sporting a darker hue come in marble, slate, and more!
The statement floor trend can mean enjoying a colored geometric tile to herringbone hardwood. This trend is easily one of the most exciting of 2018 because you have so much creative freedom and can make small rooms stand out. If you decide to tackle this trend and install a fun floor, pick a color that won’t look outdated in a few years.
It’s time to welcome back a style from the past: metal accessories, including brass and gold. This trend works so well with marble. Designers expect brass to even make its way to the shower as metal door frames, creating an industrial feel. Gold and brass tones warmly compliment grey and other natural tones that recently grew in popularity. It also makes hardware, light fixtures, and mirrors stand out.
Adding a different touch to your living room will bring a new dimension to your space. You can express a pattern, or even texture, with tile, fabrics, contemporary 3D wall cladding, and art. These walls will be a popular trend because they can bring so many different elements to a room. Patterns and texture can be added to just one wall and accent your living room, or can be on every wall in the room–be creative and have fun with this trend!
Installing unique and peculiar lighting is an easy way to revamp your bedroom. It’s quick and does not require a lot of renovating. Bring distinct lighting in through side table lamps or pendant lighting above the bed. Use task lighting if you enjoy reading or working in bed, or enhanced ambiance lighting for a soft feel and cozy atmosphere; just don’t forget that in 2018, you can do this all with stylish lighting.
