8 Hot Home Trends That You Should Definitely Try in 2018
If you are looking to buy a house or condo or just simply want to spruce up your living space, then you need to be on the lookout for the latest trends to try out in 2018.
1. Rich colors throughout the house
Enough with the mustard and avocado green colors that have graced our living spaces from the 1970s. This year is going to see a bit of hue and pomp with warm grays paired with earthy reds and yellows, rust, brown blacks, camel, and tobacco.
2. Out with white and stainless steel sinks
How about a modern farmhouse style for a change? A little bit of concrete here, a little bit of stone there, granite composite sinks in darker hues of black, grey and bronze and copper. Think rustic. Think simplicity with a touch of pomp and color.
3. Causal and calm bedrooms
Heard of the mantra less is more. Well, more and more homeowners are running with the notion and opting for minimalist yet modern furnishings instead of bold and busy colors. After all, you’ll agree that the bedroom needs to be soothing with simple furniture pieces, impartial color pallets, and supple fabrics.
4. Natural elements
If you are designing a home space for yourself, it should not only fit within the architecture but also echo the geography of its locality. This might include taking advantage of the gorgeous views and incorporating natural limestone into the mix.
5. Patterned flooring
Although hardwood floors will always be a classic, homeowners are shying away from that and injecting patterned floors which pull the room together and also add interest to it. This will include anything between soft herringbone style hardwoods to bold colored geometric tiles.
6. Jewel Tones
2018 is making a bold statement with invigorating jewel tones. From jewel-toned sofas, velvet throw pillows and calm colors such as lilac in restful rooms.
7. Faux finishes
More and more homeowners are turning to faux materials for a cheaper and reliable option to legitimate materials. Think faux wood ceiling beams which don’t bow or rot like real wood. Faux foliage. Faux leather counters. Manufactured gray floorings.
2018 is seeing a lot of material manipulation and if you want to keep up with the trends you might have to join in the bandwagon. Think huge stitches made of stunning luxe yarns, pleating and folding in cotton and velvets.
