We searched all through the best design trend websites, blogs, articles, and more to find what home design elements you should be looking for in the coming year. If you’re thinking about updating your home in any way, the following trends are some things to keep in mind.

High Contrast Palettes

Saturated colors with a mix of white to balance out the palette are going to be a big hit this coming year. No more accent walls but, rather incorporating dark design elements with a clean mixture of white will give that darker, more jewel and deep toned look that is going to be popular. Sinks will follow suit with darker, more daring designs. We’ll also see this trend being achieved by throwing in concrete and stone styles.

Circle Patterns and Tile Twists
Hard geometric patterns are going to be a big hit. Graphic wallpapers, cool tile backsplashes, and more rounded fixtures will be popular choices and create a cohesive aesthetic experience in your newly remodeled space.

If circle patterns just aren’t your thing, Subway Tiles are another popular choice being used in remodels. There has also been a trend towards using larger format tile that isn’t just an aesthetic choice but also one of function. Larger tile has less grout and is easier to install and maintain. All in all, whether it’s circular patterns and elements or new and more intricate tile designs, these features can add a compelling compositional element to your space.

Natural Elements

In the coming year, it seems to be increasingly more important to homeowners to design a space that fits within the architecture it resides in, while also reflecting the geography of the surrounding location. Choosing natural elements and materials that are long-lasting will result in a beautiful space that truly blends in with it’s surroundings and won’t go out of style. Stone, wooden accents, and other earthy materials are crucial in achieving this look. Bathroom design trends for 2018 are really playing up this natural aesthetic as well. Modern will slowly start to fall to the wayside while rustic bathrooms begin to become a more go-to option. Rustic bathrooms create that spa-like feel that really allows you to love and enjoy the space you’re in. Whether it’s an old claw-foot tub, a shiplap wall, or a stone counter, there are plenty of ways to pull away from or even enhance those modern bathroom designs that really took off over the last few years.

Trough or bucket sinks
These wider sinks are becoming an increasingly popular choice for shared bathrooms or even laundry rooms. These sinks can really add a great accent feature to a room and can even play a part in the more rustic and natural aesthetics we’ll be seeing in 2018.

With more people choosing to stay in their homes in the coming year, homeowners will be looking to make additions and alterations to the spaces they already love and call home. Along with this, some of the most popular areas of the house that we’ve seen people are looking to remodel are kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas of the house that may need to be altered to accommodate a growing family.
