Say goodbye to 2018 and its iconic design benchmarks. If you're planning on remodeling your home in 2019, consider adding these fresh, trendy touches to your design.
Sure, you still need practical light fixtures, but this year, you’ll see an emphasis on lighting design. From brightly colored pendants to antique chandeliers, feature lighting can add a new dimension to your home remodeling project. No matter what room you’re renovating, you’ll definitely need light. Why not have fun with your fixtures?
Nothing makes a room more welcoming than a touch of natural stone, wood, or greenery. Using natural accents in your home remodel will help to balance modern features like stainless steel, clean lines, and techie gadgets. The blend of natural and manufactured elements work together to create a harmonious space.
Funky combinations of shapes, lines, and colors add visual interest to any room in your home. For large walls, try out a fun wallpaper with repeating geometric patterns. If you're not ready to take the leap, consider implementing this trend in your fabrics or upholstery. However you apply it, this trend is a fun way to add life and movement to your interior design.
It’s not just for the outdoors! Concrete will be making a big splash in 2019 as an alternative material for flooring, countertops, and even furniture. With its clean look and robust structure, concrete can add interest to nearly any renovation project.
Delicate and sophisticated, floral drapery, upholstery, and even wallpaper are coming back onto the scene in 2019. A little goes a long way with florals, but you’ll find that using them in your project will elevate the appearance and bring a hint of nostalgia to the idea board.
Matte finishes add a refined and classy touch to furniture, appliances, and fixtures. Combining matte with lacquered and semi-gloss finishes will help to create a more approachable environment while still taking advantage of the hot design trend.
Expect more emerald green, mustard yellow, navy blue, crimson red, and other bold hues in the coming year. Soft greys had their place in 2018, but they’re being replaced by every jewel tone on the spectrum. If you’re not sure how to introduce these intense colors into your remodeling project, start with the accents, like pillows, throws, and books. As you become more comfortable, you might want to introduce larger color planes like walls or rugs.
Reduce, reuse, recycle applies to the remodeling world as well. Cultivate a sustainable design by using materials and pieces that are gentle on the environment. This includes using sustainable natural resources as well as upcycling pieces that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Brass, brushed nickel, soft gold, oh my! It’s the dealer’s choice heading into 2019. Metallics continue to be a hot topic, but this year, it seems like mixing is the way to go. Varying the finishes throughout your home will make transitioning throughout your remodel much more manageable and create a cozy, lived-in feeling.
