home design trends for 2018

We are nearly a month into the new year, and you may be thinking about what updates to make in your home this year. The design world is here to help with a list of styles that will be big in 2018.

Mitchell Parker, editor and writer, spoke about the conclusions, and why these particular trends are gaining traction.

Although white will always be a classic color for kitchen design, homeowners are shying away from bland hues and injecting rich colors into the space to give it a warm, fresh and unique feel.

Social sites such as Instagram, Pinterest and Houzz have exposed homeowners to “what’s possible, what looks fun and what they can personalize themselves,” Parker said, and have encouraged them to be bigger risk-takers when it comes to color.

Warm grays paired with camel, rust, tobacco and brown-blacks, as well as earthy reds and yellows, are expected to edge out cooler neutrals in the coming year.

“These rich colors are not like the avocado green and mustard colors from the 1970s. They won’t date quickly,” Parker said. “They are rich, moody and work well in home environments where you want a soothing and diverse mix of colors and textures.”

The modern Farmhouse style will continue to flourish in 2018 and spread to the bathroom. Parker predicts that there will be “more concrete, stone, copper and granite composite sinks in darker hues of gray, bronze or black.”

“As people set out to personalize their spaces, they are kind of bored with seeing a white sink all of the time,” Parker said. The rustic home décor trend is “waking people up to trying something new and different. It harkens back to simpler times and that feeling of simplicity can be very calming in a home environment,” he said.
