The year has turned over a new leaf which means it’s also time to put the past trends in home décor into a faraway place in our garage and brace ourselves with valiant 2018 home décor trends that resonate freedom in every nook and cranny at our humble abode.
Gone are domineering black accents and dispirited white floors and walls! Let’s keep our home decor trends in check and keep up with 2018’s rat raceon house decorations. If designing your beautiful home is underway and you’re still on the fence about which style is in and which ones were over before 2018 even began, read on. Here’s a roundup of the top 5 home décor trends you can try:
1. Go Bold or Go Home (I love puns!)
You’re probably scratching your head, visualizing a brightly-colored ceiling with vibrant walls, and flamboyant furniture! Well, you can do that and go all-out or you can stick with 2018’s bold colors for some of your furniture like dazzling reds, powerful blues or vibrant greens. If you feel it’s too much commitment, you can keep it subtler by using vivid colors on your accessories like throw pillows, rugs or carpets. These colors add a dynamic atmosphere in every room, never leaving you bored and lifeless like the neutral tones last year! We’re so over that!
2. Wooden Floor Planks
I’m going to let you in on a not-so-secret tip, wooden planks never go out of style! I’ve had wooden floor planks since heaven only knows when and I’m telling you, it’s still as sublime as the first day they were installed! This, not only gives your rooms a rustic look but it also exudes a bit of an interesting history and warmth than cold tiled floors. And the natural grain designs are to-die-for!
3. Metallic Finishes and Accents
That’s why precious metals are such good investments because they never lose their value! Especially the value of elegance and a touch of minimalistic design! Even if you pair it with cheap picture frames, integrating metallic accents through your lamps, vases, accessories, and mirrors will leave your guests (even yourself) gawking at the level of sophistication these metallic designs bring! So give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it!
4. Unique Spaces
I don’t know about you but people have been tired of endlessly conforming to society. The same goes fordecorating your home, aren’t you tired of seeing all these traditional kitchens, dining areas, living rooms, and bedrooms? It’s 2018 for crying out loud and it is time to pump up your home décor ideas and think – a workspace in the upstairs balcony, a mini gym in the patio, a standing bar in the living room, you let your imagination run wild! Don’t be afraid to create a room or space which is unorthodox but functional at the same time!
5. More Texture
I’m too tired of velvet and leather, said no one ever. Texture has been in the limelight since God knows when and it will always be in the spotlight, especially now that 2018 has paved the way for more texture usage at home. Living room sofas, bedroom loveseats, upholstered headboards, dining room cushions, throw pillows, and chair pads, these are just a few of the furnishings that you can assimilate with leather and velvet! Add more leather and velvet textures to your soft furnishings too, not only does it scream luxury and lushness, but it’s also very nice to touch!
