Although the groundhog just saw its shadow on Groundhog’s Day, spring is in the air, which means it’s time to consider a new look and presentation for the interior of your home. Nothing feels better than spring cleaning clutter, opening the windows, and really positioning your home to welcome in the warmer and sunnier weather, starting with the composition and design of your rooms.
We know it can be hard to come up with new creative ideas and design inspiration, which is why we’re providing you with the top 5 home design trends that are expected to characterize every showcased home in 2018 design trend magazines this spring season:
- Bold Cabinetry: The kitchen is the favorite room of the home, according to millennial buyers, which means that the biggest trends for 2018 are centered around the cooking space. Heavy cabinetry, with accents, colors, and intense prominence, are big trends heading into the spring. If you’re unhappy with the look of your kitchen, really pouring some effort into the cabinetry can give it an entirely new appearance.
- Clever Storage: According to Anthropologie’s styling director, Christina Fredrick, statement storage is going to be a big 2018 spring design trend. Versatile pieces that are stylish, yet functional, are making their ways into homes, like tamboured buffets and personal organizers that are also artistic in nature.
- Greens: Green has been wholly lacking from interior design trends for the last few years, but that’s about to change. As more stylists are showcasing greenery and plants in homes as staple pieces, so, too, are designers leveraging the color in furniture, wallpaper, and paints. If you want to give your living room a lighter, edgier feel, consider laying down a green coat of painting according to your preference.
- Curved Furniture: We’re going down memory lane and looking at curved couches for 2018 – reminiscent of the 1970s. Whether it’s funky chairs and couches, or kitchen chairs and outdoor furniture, you don’t have to settle for the cookie-cutter furniture that is safe and box-shaped.
- The Outside: Millennials are big into nature and utilizing outdoor space, which is why we’re seeing many homeowners invest funds into the build-out of a veranda or porch platforms, no matter how big the “backyard” might be. Really utilizing what outdoor space you have is something that can totally change your home experience while making it feel significantly bigger.
