Expected Interior Design Trends of 2018
Interior design is an ever-changing industry. Whether it be a groundbreaking innovation or a new twist on a classic idea, each year brings about a new set of trends. At Ellecor Interior Design, we are excited for what the rest of the year has in store. Here are just a few of the design trends you can expect to see in 2018.
After years of neutral, minimalist color palettes, designers are starting to utilize bright, bold colors. Some of 2018’s most popular colors may include navy blue, shades of green, and deep, rich reds. Interior designers will most likely pair bold colors with neutrals, like white and gray, to create a sense of visual balance. Some designers may keep the walls neutral and utilize bold colors in furniture and accents, while others may pair neutral furniture with painted walls.
Bold colors may become especially popular in the kitchen. For years, kitchen cabinets have stuck to a couple basic color palettes: all-white or natural wood. Now, designers are breaking the mold, painting cabinets bright and unexpected colors.
As another response to minimalist interior design, bold patterns are making a huge comeback. In particular, floral prints are gaining popularity. These bright, bold graphics add a pop of color to a room and connect the interior space with the natural world. Whether it be on wallpaper, pillows, throws, or murals and artwork, floral is sure to dominate 2018.
Though it may surprise some homeowners, concrete is becoming a popular building material for interiors. Sure, it may not be the most obvious choice, but polished concrete makes beautiful floors, countertops, fireplaces, and backsplashes. Neutral, simple, and minimalist, incorporating the use of concrete accents is sure to give your home a modern, luxurious feel. As you browse interior design blogs this year, you are sure to see a lot more concrete.
Mixing Metals and Textures
Interior design’s favorite metal seems to change every year. Polished nickel is all the rage one year and matte black becomes the height of sophistication the next. Homeowners are tired of changing out their metal accent pieces only to see them go out of style. In 2018, designers are choosing to mix and match various metals and textures. A brass lamp here, a nickel door handle there, and a copper sink in the kitchen. Using various metals adds visual interest to your home and creates an eclectic, anything-goes atmosphere.
