Since 2018 is well on its way, it’s high time we started thinking about making some changes and adding a breath of fresh air into our lives. Redecorating and refurbishing your home is the perfect way to welcome the New Year. Additionally, incorporating some of the latest interior design ideas will make your place the talk of the town. And, in order to help you make the most out of your home decoration project, we have prepared some of the most popular home design trends which will rule the year 2018. Let’s take a look and get inspired.
It's black, it's white
Contrasted colours are going to become an essential part of every home design this year. Therefore, we highly recommend investing in some black and white furniture pieces. For example, you can opt for black chairs for the dining area with white cushions which will add that dramatic touch to it. Additionally, if you want to create an even bolder atmosphere here, you can paint an accent wall in a black shade while leaving the rest in white. We guarantee you that your guests will find this trend absolutely amazing.
Red = Passion
If we take a look at last year’s home design trends, we can see how popular cold colour patterns and minimalistic furniture pieces were. However, this year everyone is going crazy for strong and dramatic shades. For example, if you want to add that sophisticated rustic feel to your bedroom, you can hang some oil paintings on the walls in which red colours dominate and compliment them with some armchairs in the same nuance which will tie the whole room together. This way, your bedroom will feel warm, inviting and most of all, it will reflect how passionate you are.
Go big – go bold
The living room is the place which represents your personality and interests so that’s why it’s important to decorate it with big pieces which will leave a strong impression on everyone who visits your home. Having this in mind, it’s not surprising that big luxurious sofas are considered to be a true craze this year. On top of that, such sofas are uniquely comfortable because they are made of premium materials and possess a classy and elegant design.
One of the most recent additions to interior design trends are definitely geometrical shapes, especially when it comes to the bathroom. This is the part of the house where you come to take a relaxing bath and take your mind off of stress. That’s why opting for dark hexagonal tiles and circle-shaped mirrors is the perfect idea for you since they help create a soothing atmosphere here. And, if you decide to make geometrical shapes a theme, you can complement it with some intricately-patterned floor rugs as well.
Reviving the backyard
The backyard is not just a dull place where you can keep your pet and let the barbeque collect dust - it’s actually the part of your house where you can have the most fun. This year, home designers are going crazy for outdoor dining spaces, so we advise you to consider constructing a small patio with a roof where your big dining table, bar and seating area will be. Finally, you should look into some trendy grooming ideas so that you and your guests can truly enjoy the serenity of a modern backyard.
As you can see, there are so many great new trends which will help you add a breath of fresh air into your home, and your life as well. All you need to do is let your imagination run wild and think big, bald and dramatic.
