Put away your crystal ball because we’ve got the ten home decor trends to watch out for in this new year of 2018. Strong themes of maximalism, terrazzo, and colorful kitchens are only a few of what’s in store for 2018 decor. So whether redesigning your home is on your resolution list or not, take a seat, because these trends are sure to dazzle.
Forget white walls and clear surfaces because 2018 is about adding more texture, color, and patterns into your home. Following Pantone’s color of the year, a vibrant Ultra Violet, it’s expected that people will use home decor as a way to express their eclectic styles. So go ahead and show off your big personality, because more is more in 2018.
The ’70s are making a comeback with this playful terrazzo trend. Known for being one of the most versatile tiling options, terrazzo incorporates chips of granite, marble and glass to create its dimensional and dazzling look. With several different colors and textures, terrazzo gives spaces a contemporary and charming feel.
3. Statement Ceilings
Don’t forget to look up! Relating to the maximalism trend, statement ceilings are going to be huge this year. Wooden beams are a great way to add height to your room, and wallpaper with a decorative print is ideal for creating a bold look. Whatever your style is, statement ceilings are a fresh and dramatic trend that we can’t wait to see more of this year.
4. House Jungle
Greenery decor has remained hot since last year, but in 2018 it’s all about patterns. Plants with ornate patterns and hues are a perfect addition to a boho styled home. From bright stripes, to charming polka dots, these unique plants will give your room an earthy and contemporary feel. And it’s not just about what goes in the pot! Planters with unique textures, prints, and vibrant colors are also a great way to create a global style.
5. Colorful Kitchens
Allow us to reintroduce color back into your kitchen. With minimalism shrinking into the decor background-a common trend for this year-even the kitchen is getting a more maximalism style. By having both painted and wooden cabinets, your kitchen will have a warmer, inviting vibe versus the cold feel of an all-white look.
6. Bone Inlay
Stunning and ornate, furniture with inlay bone tiles add a great sense of texture and dimension to any room. With beautiful designs and a hint of shine, bone inlay furniture adds texture and dimension to any room. With beautiful designs, inlay bone tiles give homes a global and boho chic feel.
7. Matte Metal
Expect to see a lot of matte metal in the upcoming year, especially in the kitchen. The matte finish on metal fixtures, like drawer pulls, complement light wooden cabinets perfectly, creating a soft industrial style. By moving away from shiny metal accents, matte metal creates a sleek and somewhat edgy feel without being too harsh.
8. Coffee Carts
It seems that bar cart’s moment has come to an end, as stylists are all about re-purposing them into a coffee station. Even though the bar cart fad had an extremely classy feel, they are definitely underused and can be a dust collector. Thus this year, we expect to see bar carts turning into coffee carts-which let’s face it, will be used every morning.
9. Large Wall Art
Bigger is better for wall art in 2018. Instead of creating a perfectly curated gallery wall, hang one large, eye-catching piece that has an undeniably cool vibe. But don’t let size intimidate you, large wall art can be both serene and a statement piece at the same time.
10. Spa Bathrooms
Self care has been a huge movement that’s flowed over from last year into 2018, and we can expect to see its influence in bathroom design. People, now more than ever, are searching for a relaxing retreat even if they can’t escape to the Bahamas. With deep bathtubs and dreamy floor tiles, spa inspired bathrooms are the perfect haven in your home.
