If you’re thinking now’s a good time to give your home a makeover but aren’t sure what you should do, the following hot home trends may inspire you. While some of these trends carry over from years past, some trends are new and exciting. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and prepare to be inspired.
1. Go Neutral
Neutrals have been a going trend for quite some time now, and for good reason. Not only are they calming and relaxing, but they also provide the perfect backdrop for pops of color and pattern. While cool neutrals have always been the way, it’s likely that warm neutral shades will become just as popular in today’s modern home.
2. Velvet Furniture
If your mind automatically goes to the old, ugly red velvet couch of yesteryear, think again. Today’s design trends include a multitude of velvet furnishings, with sofas taking center stage. Imagine a neutral backdrop and a bright blue, pink, orange, or yellow velvet sofa as the room’s main attraction. It’s a match made in heaven; you can count on that.
From one end of the color spectrum to the other, black and white are the yin and yang of the color world. Design trends have always married these two colors, and today, they continue their wedded bliss with combinations such as black furnishings and white throw pillows. Chevron patters and black and white marble are just a couple of the textiles and prints that bring light and dark together.
4. Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns are on everything these days. From coffee cups to wallpaper and everything in between, it’s easy to overdo this design trend. The key to using geometric prints in your home is to choose one aspect you’d like to be the focal point and go geo to your heart’s content.
Remember, less is more, so if you’re geometricizing a wall or some other big area, only apply the pattern to one wall to avoid making the space too busy.
5. Health and Wellbeing
In today’s busy world, it’s becoming more and more important to have a place to relax and rejuvenate. The home is the perfect place to create this oasis. From incorporating wellness amenities in already existing homes to building eco-friendly features into new homes, this trend is meant to fight the everyday stress, pollution, and unhealthy lifestyle practices that have taken over our lives.
To help achieve a healthier home environment, you may want to consider natural lighting options, filtration for better air and water quality, and other design options that contribute to a greener, healthier lifestyle.
6. Pops of Green
Green has always been synonymous with nature. As the trend turns toward health and wellness, so does the inclusion of the color green. A great way to include this vibrant shade in your home is to add live plants here and there. Combined with a neutral backdrop, these additions really pop. Some easy-to-care-for plant options include the rubber plant, the snake plant, and the money plant.
Hopefully, the hot trends listed above give you some inspiration for revamping your own home. There’s nothing quite like a fresh, exciting new look to make you fall in love with your home all over again.
