Home design trends are always changing, providing new and improved ways to transform your space into something that is exciting and reflective of your personality. The following trends have grown considerably throughout 2017, with people all over the world adopting them as part of their spaces. Take a look at which ones top our list…
Forget glossy finishes or textured walls, it’s all about matte right now. This sleek, sophisticated option has the ability to transform any room into its most stylish self. Whether you paint all your walls in a matte grey or choose to make your kitchen stand out by choosing a matte black finish for your cabinets, you can’t go wrong with this option.
For a few years we’ve seen minimalistic home designs that feature little more than white walls and countertops combined with modern furniture that all sits neatly on one colour scheme. While this is certainly still a popular trend, a more diverse style is coming back; the ‘throw-it-together’ type of design that features bright colours and bold prints. This trend is perfect for those people who want to make their spaces more cosy and comfortable rather than simple and parred back. While both have their merits, there’s no doubt that a room bursting with colour and personality is a great place to be.
Plants aren’t just for the garden anymore. They’re making their way into every corner of our living spaces, from the living room to the bedroom and everything in between. These beautiful additions add life and colour to any room and can look particularly beautiful amongst the clean and crisp backdrops of the kitchen and bathroom. Not only are potted plants a becoming increasingly popular, but terrariums, cacti and other low-maintenance options are making it easier than ever to add some spice with minimal commitment. Try adding one to your space and see how it adds something that no other piece of furniture can!
Gone are the days where everyone would flock to a standard furniture store to buy their couches, TV units and coffee tables. Now, it’s all about taking the old and giving it a new purpose. Reclaimed furniture is great because not only is it an easy way to add personality and flavour to any space, but it can be much cheaper than buying pieces brand new. This style allows you to take old tables, chairs, couches and tables and turn them into exactly what you wish you could find in store. There are also a wide range of stores specialising in this kind of design now too, so you’re bound to find what you’re looking for if you don’t want to do it yourself.
