1. Floral prints
Experts in interior design predict that floral prints are going to make a big comeback in the year 2018. Especially bold floral prints in contrasting colors, on fabrics like curtains, upholstery and throw pillows.
Floral prints can transform a space with the sheer beauty and the cocktail of colors that they bring with them. But what’s important to keep in mind is not going over the top with this hot trend. Moderation is the key, which can be brought on by mixing the florals with enough neutral shades to create the right balance.
2. Statement Wall Art
Another trend as per experts is eye-catching wall art. Bare walls are officially a thing of the past.
What you decide to adorn your walls with, says a lot about who you are. Blank walls can make you feel like you’re living in a hotel, while displaying art on your walls gives the décor a wonderful personality.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to bring out those timeless plates, frames and artwork from the attic and hang them all up.
3. Light Wood Kitchen Cabinets
This year, kitchen cabinets aren’t going to see a lot of white. 2018 will see cabinets in a range of natural shades of wood, from medium to light wood. And we aren’t talking of the same old cherry or oak finish.
Cabinets this year will majorly have flat fronts and clean lines. This wouldn’t just add a natural texture to the setting, but also make the space feel warm and welcoming.
4. Statement Flooring
This year won’t just see wall art making a statement, but also floors, (that get ignored most of the time) whether it’s colorful geometric tiles or light hued hardwood floors. Even the bathroom flooring is going to get quite a bit of attention this year.
Floors that make a statement are a great way to add a touch of glamour and variety to any setting, especially small rooms.
The only thing you may want to remember is to not go overboard on this hot trend, as flooring, unlike upholstery isn’t something that you’ll be able to change once the trend wears out.
5. Patterned Plants
Another trend that’s going to be in vogue this year is patterned plants dotting the home décor. Bedroom plants aren’t just good for your sleep, they are an easy way of adding a little bit of drama to any setting.
6. Statement Ceilings
Close your eyes for a minute and envision the ceiling of your home. We bet you thought of something flat and white!
Well it’s about time you changed that, as 2018 is going to see some very stylish statement ceilings. And as with everything else, moderation is the magic word here, as the ceiling is also something that you’ll have to live with for quite a while.
