Interior Design Trends That Are Going to Be Huge This Year



Show-stopping doors

This is an amazing trend, and one that is that should never really go away. After all, your front door is the grand entryway to your home. It is one of the first things people see when they come to your property and sets the tone for the rest of your house. Therefore, it is only right that your front door should make a massive impact. You can expect to see brighter colours and more unique designs when passing by properties this year. Plus look out for the new metals trend making a statement on front door hardware everywhere. Bigger, bolder and totes instagrammable.


Dark woods

Indiscreet furniture and bleached woods have been popular for quite some time due to the Scandinavian trend. But we are going bolder this year. You can expect leading brands and stores to go for dark wood instead. You only need to look at the furniture by Palazzo Collezioni to see that this is the case. It's a classic, versatile and much-loved option for dining tables, grounding coffee tables and kitchen benchtops. If you want to add some depth to a room, consider looking for textured walnut pieces and mahogany furniture - even better if it's handmade by a local craftsman or rough-hewn to tie in the next trend.

With every year that comes and goes, there are new trends that make their impact. If you want to give your home a bit of a refresh this year, then you need to be aware of the trends that are going to make a major hit. So, let’s take a look at the top interior trends for 2018.



New Metallics

You probably already know that metallics have been a major hit as of late. After all, they have been everywhere, especially yellow gold and rose gold. However, we are set to see metallics have a bit of a makeover in 2018. From nickel to brass, we are going for materials that will add more of an organic element to your home because they have less of a high shine. Look for hammered, textured and matte metals for the perfect mix.

Earthy neutrals

Neutrals always provide the perfect palette for any home and the earthy neutrals trend proves they'll be anything but boring. Slate is the new neutral of choice. This muted green has grey undertones and provides the perfect replacement for any stone, beige, or pure white areas in your property. Plus look for recycled and hand crafted furniture and decor pieces for a cosy, homely vibe all the decor magazines already have you lusting after. Home really is where the heart is this year, so inject some with this layered and textured trend.


Statement ceilings

Last but not least, if you want to make a statement with your interiors this year, you should do it with your ceiling. Statement walls have been way overdone, and it is now time to make an impact with your ceiling instead. According to Pinterest, searches for statement ceilings are up by a massive 310%, and that statistic alone shows that they are set to be a massive hit. (And if you're not convinced much can be done to make a ceiling beautiful...check these out - wallpaper, beams, mirror and dramatic colour oh my! #LOVE
