One thing you should be excited about is new decor trends that will rule 2018. Bold colours, interesting furniture, natural stone, and decorations are here and they are not going anywhere, at least for a year. So, if you’re planning to refresh your home’s decor in 2018, feel free to dive into these trends and give your home a new and trendy look.
1. Curved furniture
We finally have a trendy alternative to the L-shaped sofas inspired by the simple Scandinavian design. Curved furniture inspired by the silhouettes of the 70s is in, and it looks beautiful!
It looks amazing from every angle and it can be used as a perfect room divider, especially in a traditional rectangular room. When it comes to furniture colour and pattern, most designers recommend going neutral with larger items, but more and more people choose to ignore their advice and opt for bold colours and geometric patterns. This trend is especially popular on Instagram and Pinterest, so if that’s your cup of tea, we say go ahead.
2. Bold colours
Fall and winter of 2017 were full of dark colours, and 2018 will be the same. Think bold and deep shades that evoke comfort and richness, like Ultra Violet or bold Oceanside. Both shades are quite lively and refreshing, which marks a great start of the New Year.
If these colours look a bit too much for you, you can introduce them into your home with velvet throws or pillows and make your home look trendy without much investment.
3. Kitchen trend: focus on the cabinets
Bye-bye open shelves, and welcome back cabinets. In 2018, you’ll be able to see a lot of kitchens equipped with a lot of cabinets that are super practical and uncluttered. But, forget about all-white kitchens. Instead, expect to see more warm greys, creams, and wood tones.
4. Worn brass
People either love or hate brass, but no matter how you feel about it, it’s back stronger than ever. Its weathered look will be all over kitchen cabinets, living rooms, and vintage light fixtures, so brass it up!
5. Unusual stones
White marble was all the rage in 2017, but next year, it will get new friends to play with. The stone trend will involve some new and unusual types of stones, such as onyx, agate and alabaster. These natural materials add amazing texture and depth to any space and any design. They are both classic and fresh.
Also, you can expect to see some unusual stone colours, such as grey or green, so everything is possible.
6. Hot bathroom trend: Freestanding baths
After being a bit neglected, baths are finally getting the attention they deserve and they are coming back stronger and more beautiful than ever before. Freestanding baths are especially popular and they are found in all shapes, from square and rectangular to soft oval and round. A high-quality freestanding bath fits any bathroom and serves as a beautiful focal element of the space, especially when installed in the centre of the room.
3D tiles will also be quite popular because of their ability to add depth and texture to a space.
7. Alfresco dining
People with an outdoor dining space have been trying to locate their dining table as close to the house as possible. But now, al fresco dining spaces are moving deeper into the garden. It might be a little less convenient, but the effort is all worth it. It makes a much more luxe dining experience if you have your delicious meal surrounded by lush plants, ambient lighting or a fire pit.
This area will also serve as a perfect place for a romantic date and offer you a private space to enjoy with your partner right in your backyard.
So, these are just some of the trends that will be all the rage in 2018. But as always, you do you and adopt only the trends that you really like and feel comfortable being surrounded with.
