A huge part of our job at as interior designers is awareness of how interior design is evolving. Every year a few new interesting, fun, and quirky trends take the design world by storm. While a trend may feel like a worthy investment, we came up with a few that should stick around for years to come. Here are the 2018 design trends worth investing in.
This look is sleek, sophisticated, and creates a minimal feel in your space. By hiding your appliances into your cabinetry, the rest of your kitchen design will stand out.
Pop of Color in the Kitchens
As designers, we are advocates of color. Even in minimalistic ways, color adds a touch of your personality into your space. Colorful kitchens are coming back into style and can easily be done in a way that adds value to your home. Maybe a minimal change, like painting your kitchen island, is the best way to freshen up your home. If a full kitchen remodel is what you’re after, this is an optimal time to add a pop of color with tile.
We LOVE any opportunity to use wallpaper. It can be traditional and simplistic, fun and quirky, or calm and natural. Wallpaper has received a bad rep over the years from being a focal point in outdated spaces. The beauty of it, wallpaper can be anything you want it to be. It is a great addition to any room in your home that does not have any moisture.
Nature is a continuous source of inspiration for design. This year’s trends are no different: Wood, stone and plant-inspired design are here to stay. This may be through a coffee table with a raw wood base, using more plants in your home, or using butcher block as a countertop in your kitchen. Pulling in natural colors, textures, and patterns is an inexpensive way to give your home a new feel.
A common missed opportunity in design is creating a unique and visually interesting ceiling. There are many ways to achieve this. Wood beams are an architectural feature that creates visual interest and gives your home a rustic feel. Crown molding can come in many shapes and sizes. It can vary from a minimal style to one that is ornate and intricate. Whatever you chose, it immediately draws your eye up to the ceiling and gives your space a polished feel.
