Whether you follow the latest trends or want to do your own thing, finding out what is popular is a great way of getting ideas that inspire you. While some trends are focused on the latest popular colors or style, all of them are useful as guides for your home upgrade projects and even if you do not follow a trend exactly, you still get the benefits of that spark of creativity that comes with taking a look.
Here are five home design trends for 2018 that might just inspire you with something unique and personal to your own preferences.
1) Artisan Fixtures
The word artisan means handmade or handcrafted. Artisan fixtures are a great way of supporting your local artist or small business but there is so much more to choosing artisan fixtures such as lighting, sinks, and more. With hand-crafted fixtures, you get something that is unique, high-quality, and made with care and personality. From cluster chandeliers to copper sinks, each item carries a bold statement perfect for upgrading your home’s personality. You will also love the attention to detail and the knowledge that whatever you choose was made with care and quality.
2) Decorative Door Glass
Along with having more privacy, decorative door glass also combines a balance of a decorative look that is stylish, detailed, and adds personality to your doors. There are many styles to choose from so whether you want something a little eclectic with a splash of eye-pleasing hues or something more subtle and elegant – the choices are many and have all the benefits such as panels that are thermally sealed for air- and water-tight performance and a 20 year glass seal warranty. Each one is handcrafted and is as individual as your own aesthetic.
3) Natural Minerals Wallpaper
These styles of wallpaper showcase a representation of the natural elements of geode, jade, agate, rose quartz, agate, and more. With vivid colors and distinctive patterns, your decor will stand out as a bold statement of who you are. Minimalists won’t care for these patterns but if you’re going to make a statement – go big and go bold. These are easy to pair with the colors you like since you have a lot of choices and designs. For instance, a benitoite crystal wallpaper has a lot of white with bold splashes of blue and allows you a bold look yet more subtle than some of the others. Or, if you really want a vivid look then a malachite crystal has plenty of bold green and gold colors that are quite striking.
4) Retractable Screen Doors
Retractable screen doors are a way of adding style along with features you’ll love. The benefits include keeping pests out of your home while still letting in the fresh air but with the retractable ability of these screen doors, you only see it when you want to and it doesn’t look unsightly or cumbersome like a regular screen door. These are an upgrade that makes your home more pleasant and lets you enjoy the weather when it’s at its best.
5) Brass Accents
Using stainless steel or brushed silver in bathrooms, kitchens, and utility rooms is now being considered more pedestrian and the alternative is the warmth of brass accents. Not only is it a warm and welcoming look but it is a look that integrates into any decor or design. You get the advantages of a strong fixture, rust resistance, and low maintenance while having a look that is perfect for any style of home.
