Interior Design Trends of 2018
With only a few months left in 2018, now is a good opportunity to review some of the most prominent interior trends of 2018. Pulling heavily from minimalism and midcentury modern decor, you can expect to see clean lines, stark color contrasts and a rustic feel throughout these trends. Read on to see some of the most popular in-home choices of 2018.
Bringing Nature Indoors
It’s no surprise that natural materials have made a comeback, especially in an age where lots of people are looking for environmentally friendly home decorating choices. Wood flooring, bed frames, and even countertops as butcher block are all popular ways to bring a bit of nature into your home. Additionally, decorating with plants is definitely in; they provide a nice color contrast to wood and tie together the whole natural feeling. From dark wood floors and plants to stone countertops and reclaimed iron, decorating with nature has never been more popular.
Black and White
In addition to earthy tones of wood and greenery, decorating with black and white is another big trend of 2018. White granite countertops with black farmhouse sink, for example, are great ways to add a pop of contrast to your home. Some of the most popular places to add this opposing colors are in the kitchen and bathrooms, although anywhere you add black and white to your home, you’ll also add a sense of cleanliness and boldness.
Whether you’re thinking about incorporating earthy tones or a black and white color scheme, adding in some accents can help tie everything together. Accents can come in a lot of different forms including rugs, paint colors, materials and more. In 2018, we’ve seen a lot of metallic accents, especially brushed metal or copper in the form of light fixtures, outlet covers, or even the kitchen faucet. With metallic accents, it’s important to keep things consistent, especially when it comes to material and finish. Having too many different kinds of accents can be a bit confusing to the eye, so use them sparingly.
Striking repeating shapes are among the most popular interior trends this year, bringing clean lines and the opportunity to experiment in various rooms of your home. You can see lots of repeating shapes used in kitchens and bathrooms through the use of subway tiles, but you can also use these patters to accentuate your living room or bedroom. Using geometric decor in your home is similar to using accent in the sense that using too much can easily be overwhelming, however tessellated shapes offer up some opportunities to add color and contrast to places like your flooring and ceilings.
There are many other interior design trends that have become popularized over the past year, but these are some of the broader options to look into if you’re thinking about remodeling or redecorating. Whether you’re bringing a bit of nature into your house or adding a pop or color and contrast, these are some trends to keep you eyes on.
