Most people can agree that there’s no better feeling than getting home after a long day of work, right? What could possibly be better than that? Perhaps something better is being proud of the décor you’ve chosen and so your place has a look and style that suits your taste, that would be perfect. With all the advancement that is taking place in every other aspect of our lives, and as such, designers and home decorators have been able to keep up with the fast pace. However, in case you haven’t been able to keep up with the new trends that seem to be coming out on a daily basis – fear not! Plenty of outdated styles are expected to make a big comeback in 2018 and you might already have most of the hottest items stored in your basement somewhere or better yet, they haven’t moved since they were last popular! Whatever the case may be, let’s have a look at what home decor trends are expected to come back in 2018.
THE BIG COMFY COUCH
Many new homeowners have been taking space into consideration more than the actual design of the furniture pieces they choose. The vast spaces have become more significant in the trendiest interior designs, however; having oversized pieces of furniture are expected to comeback big next year. Oversized furniture is comfortable and as well, works to create that elegant antiquely atmosphere that is perfect for all people who are fond of classical themes. If you aren’t fond now, just wait – you will be.
Interior designers tend to create a luxurious look by using lavish furnishings in large decors, and believe it or not; luxury and minimalism go hand-in-hand. Creating a minimalist decor is not overly expensive, hence the idea of being minimal. Minimalism aims to use functional items and de-clutter their rooms by using furniture and storage that doubles as décor and by keeping only the home accessories that you need. HINT: Look for sofas with hidden storage or a bed with drawers underneath.
THE BLACK AND WHITE COOKIE
This trend has always managed to stick around as it is the classic example of the perfect contrast. Having an interior design that is solely in black and white has been around for a very long time, and quite obviously, it is one of the top trends that will never go out of style. It may look “vintage”, but that is the reason that is actually reflecting a sense of sophistication and elegance as well. Bottom line; no matter how the trends of colours fluctuate with time, these two colors, black and white, in particular, will always remain the best classical blend.
Ok, maybe not ALL Christmas colours are in, however; pairing green and gold together creates an appealing design and gives your space a warm, welcoming vibe with its calm and delicate accents. This was a very popular trend during the 1970’s, but it seems it is willing to make a comeback and stay for a while! For those of you that have not updated your home’s décor since then, rejoice now!
ALL THE MARBLES
Layering your walls and floors in marble from head to toe may not be the most cost-effective trend, however, did you know that you can achieve the same look at a fraction of the cost? Did you know that you can buy wallpaper with a marble design? That’s right! Feel free to have some fun with this one by mixing the designs to create a truly realistic look. You can use marble wallpaper in the living room, kitchen, bathroom or hallway – your home is your canvas, create your masterpiece at a fraction of the cost!
IN THE NAVY
Green isn’t the only trending colour on this list. It is expected that many homeowners will select navy blue as an alternative to black as it pairs well with many other colour schemes. Feel free to combine your navy of choice with an existing lighter blue for stunning results without fear. Using navy as an alternative to black is very beneficial as navy blue does not make the room feel smaller.
BRASS IS CLASS
You’ll probably be familiar with those brass stand lamps that your grandparents or your parents had, and they’ve since tried to pawn them off to you, right? Well you should’ve taken them when you had the chance! Brass is a simple piece of metal yet it is capable of making your home shine bright with its lively yellow colour. This “new” trend may be considered as one of the most outdated home décors, but it is expected to make a big comeback once again in 2018! Better get going to those neighbourhood garage sales!
There sure are plenty of reasons to look forward to 2018, and in terms of design and home décor, 2018 definitely promises to bring some eye-catching changes and inspired looks to the table.
