Here’s what trends will be big on the home front next year…
The new year is less than three months away and we’re beginning to predict what new and old trends will hit the interior design community by storm. We have done our research on what’s hot and what’s not: we’ll be saying goodbye to cool greys, terrazzo tile, and fibre art. Next year will be all about welcoming in the light, appreciating nature, and bold statements.
This past year we witnessed more people taking action on bettering themselves through healthier lifestyle alternatives. Meditation rooms were designed and greenery was incorporated in our offices. Next year we’re expecting to recognize the impact that our actions have on the environment. Leftover materials like marble will be recomposed in smart ways, energy-saving appliances will be used, and live plants will continue to stay on trend.
2. White with a splash of colour
Fashion shows in 2018 showcased new collections built on a foundation of white with a hint of confident hues. Interior design will take on this trend as it offers a fresh, bold, and youthful look. Expect a craving for your bedrooms to be tempered by neutral layers and tons of texture.
3. Light wood
Watch out for your friends, family members, and clients who insist on exposing light wood in their home. We’ll see this trend mainly through flooring, thanks to the homeowner’s growing desire for a more airy and open look and feel. In shades of birch, beachy white and light oak, these floors reflect more light and can transition from casual to luxurious, without sacrificing comfort.
4. Statement ceilings
If Pinterest has seen a 310% increase in saved pins of this decor, then we can promise our readers that this will be on of the biggest trends in 2019. Statement ceilings have the ability to transform a room from top to bottom (literally). These adventurous designs can be achieved with paint, wallpaper, wood, and more.
5. Boldly patterned backsplashes
Simple, monochromatic kitchens have had a good long run, so we predict that making more of an impact in the kitchens will happen next year. We will be gravitating towards bolder colour choices or graphic tiles. Eye-catching bathroom tiles had their time to shine, now it’s the kitchen’s turn!
