While many homeowners tend to go for classic decor and timeless pieces when remodeling, there???s no denying that trends can greatly affect our decisions during the decorating process. The best interior designs reflect the homeowner???s personality while showcasing trendy yet tasteful pieces that make it feel current. Read on as Highland Design + Build, formerly known as CASE Design/Remodeling, the leading remodeling contractor, shares four design trends that we predict will be big in 2018:
- Color. White kitchens are still a popular trend among homeowners, but next year, we are expecting homeowners to be bolder with colors. The calming tones of grays and blues complemented by warm wood furnishings are ideal for a high foot traffic area. This creates an elegant, high-end look that instantly improves your home???s appearance. For the rest of the home, the rich, earthy shades of tobacco and camel make excellent choices.
- Sinks. This key feature will start to veer away from the traditional white or stainless-steel colors and turn to the more dramatic dark hues of natural materials like concrete, stone and copper. With the rise in popularity of modern farmhouse-style kitchens, troughs and bucket sinks could also be in demand. You can turn to an expert home improvement company like us for creative tips on how to incorporate these features into your kitchen.
- Details. Concrete may be used in more ways than one at home, especially through decorative accents, various furniture and tiles. Another rising trend is in millwork walls and detailing. Look for this classic feature in bathrooms and kitchens, as well as bedrooms. Vintage-style lights including aged copper pendants will also be gaining traction.
- Backsplash. Gone are the days of simple, block-colored backsplashes. In 2018, wallpaper-esque materials will be popular choices for homeowners looking to add visual impact to their kitchens. Unique tile that can mimic the look of real wood or fabric will also be in demand.
