Furniture trends, color themes or wallpapers are constantly changing with the season so it is hard to keep up with what’s new and what’s not. Fret not, we’ll be refreshing your mind and introducing some of the new trends to consider this year for your new home.
1. Familiar tones
Color palates that consist of same-family hues and tints are going to be a huge hit this year. Already we have a huge following of this trend. You can definitely expect to see this style catch on like fire in the coming months. Instead of using high contrast color schemes, people are definitely going to lean towards same-tones.
2. Artsy pedestals
Step-up or pedestals are a great way to individualize various open zones of your homes. It’s a trend that was especially beloved in the year 2017. However, it is completely evolving in the year of 2018. Pedestals are still going to be a huge part of the design schematics, but they’ll come with a twist. You can expect to see them in various shapes that is going to redefine the open-floor layout aesthetic.
3. Vivacious lighting
Gone are the days of one-dimensional lighting. In today’s coming trend, you will experience a whole new way of accomplishing lighting design. Instead of just a single fixture, you’ll notice a variation of many different fixtures all in one space. All of these can have a unique way to throw light, which makes the space look especially distinctive to the user.
4. Darkly contrasting colors
Another emerging color trend that you’re going to see a lot in 2018 is the use of darkly contrasting colors. Each color has to be from the dull end of the spectrum, yet one of it has to be light enough to contrast the darker color. For example, if one of your colors is slate grey or even black, then the other one can be a dark yet vibrant shade of brown.
5. Statement pieces
What we can see will be the upcoming trend for this year would be the resurgence in the statement art genre. This means only a single, beautiful piece of furniture or art can be used to make a huge statement with the entire room.
