These trends are more popular than ever…
Goodbye 2017, hello 2018. With every new year – comes new trends, especially in the design world. With some help from Houzz, Lionsgate Design is setting its sights on what home decor trends will be big in 2018.
1. If you haven’t yet…Lighten up your space
Add this one to your New Years resolutions list if you haven’t yet because lightening up your space won’t be an “old” trend anytime soon. Curtain-less and floor-to-ceiling windows will become even more desirable as natural light makes a room appear open, fresh, and clean. If the natural light aspect is too large of a task to tackle, try swapping out the dark paint on your walls for something lighter and more inviting.
2. Add a pop of colour to your kitchen
If you’re currently freaking out because you don’t want any drastic changes to your neutral kitchen – don’t worry! We aren’t talking major renovations here (if you aren’t), just small additions. We found that homeowners are shying away from bland hues and injecting rich colours such as warm wood tones and neutrals. This can easily be done by accessorizing with a blast of your favourite colour scheme.
3. Trough & bucket sinks for the win
Another sign that this modern trend isn’t going anywhere soon: Houzz predicts that deep, wide and durable trough and bucket sinks will continue to be popular in 2018. Used commonly in busy laundry rooms and kids’ bathrooms, these long, narrow and low-maintenance sinks can help create a rustic aesthetic and maximise minimal space.
4. Introducing minimalist to your bedroom
Homeowners are running with the “less is more” notion in the master bedroom and opting for more modern and minimalist furnishings. While you’re adding colour to your kitchen, you’re removing it from the bedroom, keeping the colour palette neutral. Soft fabrics and simple furniture pieces also play an important part in keeping the space casual, calm, and modern.
5. Don’t forget the fringe
Last but not least, decorative fringe. This has to be the most exciting trend as we’re used to being limited to fringe decor, but not in 2018. I wouldn’t be surprised if you already have the blankets, pillows, or rugs that fall under this category. Now it’s time to ring in the new year with light fixtures, furniture, and even mirrors that scream, fringe!
