Let’s take a look at the upcoming home design trends of 2018, what’s popular for the latest home styles, and what can work best for your home renovation or redecorating!
Warm and Organic Colors
Warm and organic colors retreated a little in favor of industrial, minimalist styles, but look for them to be back in force this coming year. There will be a lot of focus on wood tones (even if there’s no actual wood), nature-based greens, and sea tones to help make homes feel a little cozier — and sometimes a little wilder.
Reclaimed wood has soared in popularity lately, and that’s not going to change anytime soon. This reclaimed, roughened-up look can be both beautiful and highly customized when done correctly; although, it does tend to be a little more expensive. Furniture and flooring are popular options, but we are also seeing it in the kitchen and bedroom.
A Surprising Amount of Concrete
Concrete is highly affordable and surprisingly innovative, and designers are growing more creative about how it’s used around the home. Move aside countertops — we expect to see concrete moldings, concrete wall coverings, and even concrete furniture. Concrete can easily be colored for a variety of different looks or etched to create unique patterns.
Traditional sinks are basic porcelain, and modern sinks tend to be stainless steel, but both trends will be pushed back by more creative options in 2018. Copper and stone sinks will start to become more popular, allowing for more luxurious bathrooms and more innovative sink shapes. Bucket sinks will also start showing up in more homes, in both rustic and modern styles to suit a variety of needs.
The woven look is starting to become popular in all kinds of homes, and we expect the trend to kick off in 2018. Expect to see a lot more woven baskets, woven furniture, woven art on the walls, and even woven panels used for decoration. It’s a great look if you want more natural elements in your house, and they also work well with a splash of color.
In the past, bedrooms have been dark, floral, festive, and everything in between. In the coming year, we predict there will be a lot more “neutral” bedrooms. In other words, very simple design, not much furniture and a focus on very light colors that simply exist rather than trying to impart a particular feeling. It’s part of an effort to get bedrooms back to basics and make them easier to relax in.
