  • Written by Catherine Collins

If having a home remodel is one of the New Year’s resolutions for 2018, then definitely consider these trends. The year 2018 will encourage experimenting with different styles like never before! Give your walls a unique modern treatment or go in a completely opposite direction with a more traditional rustic design. But, whichever trend you choose, you’ll end up with a home that will make 2018 a happy, prosperous and stylish year.


Unique paint jobs

If you’re used to painting your walls with solid colours, then 2018 has a big surprise for you. Say hello to colour blocks, ombre walls, interesting stencils and other exotic paint effects. Divide your walls into triangles, blocks or lines, and paint them in a trendy combination of muted grey, blue, and pink. These simple yet intriguing shapes will give your walls a fresh sophisticated look and contemporary vibe.

Soft colour scheme

The year 2017 was all about Millennial pink. So, if you still want this recognisable shade of pink to grace your home, by all means, go ahead. However, you can also go for something fresher like lavender or lilac, the trendy shades Millennial pink is slowly morphing into. These soft and relaxing tones go well with accents in deeper colours, so give them a try during your next remodel.

New nautical

If you’ve always been a fan of the coastal trend, then you’re going to be one happy camper (or captain) in 2018. However, this New Year brings us a fresh take on nautical interior design with deeper indigo and traditional seaside hues, as well as marble and big textured finishes. So, if you’ve always dreamed of coastal life, now you can experience it right in your home, even if you live in a continental area.

Circles are the new triangles

Geometric patterns are still going strong, but squares and triangles are slowly getting replaced or accompanied by circles and spheres. You can go small with accent pillows patterned with coloured circles or go big with graphic wallpaper with circle optical illusions. No matter what you choose, your space will instantly come to life.

Cosy rustic

For all people who love the romantic vibe and homey feeling of rustic and vintage interiors, 2018 will come like a breath of fresh air. Mixing different types of weathered and distressed woods, natural and textured materials and earthy tones will make every interior look and feel idyllic. Make sweet tea in your mismatched teacups, fill your sunroom with fresh wildflowers, and enjoy simple pleasures of rustic style.

 


Modern Scandi

The Scandi trend is set to be just as big in 2018. It fits great in any room, from the living space to the bathroom. As a matter of fact, Scandinavian style bathrooms with warm wood and comfy baths will be all the rage this year. Additionally, woven baskets and other accessories made of natural materials will perfectly complement the Scandi space and give it true international feel.

 


Stylish floors

Classic herringbone parquet floor will always be trendy. Herringbone floors will add a bit of pattern to your living space and make it interesting. In 2018, choose oversized boards that will give this traditional look a fresh and modern take. Opt for warm wood with a natural finish that’s super easy to clean and you will be able to maintain it without wasting too much time.

Go crazy with floral prints on everything, from pillows to your kitchenware and bathroom towels.

Start your year on a high note with a little home renovation. Opt for one of these trendy elements and interior design styles, and your home will look fresh all throughout 2018.
