Each year, the designs, layouts, and styles in homes continue to change. From paint colors to flooring types to kitchen layouts, it’s important to know what’s in style. While you don’t have to follow every single home trend, it’s always beneficial to know what’s in and what’s out. So to help you make your home look as best as possible, here are a few home trends you can expect to see this year.
Colors and Patterns
In 2018 we saw a lot of greys, neutrals, and accent walls. But this year, we’re expected to see a lot more bold colors and patterns. Instead of having just one wall in the room be bright or covered in textured wallpaper, this is going to be a whole-room design. And it’s not just the walls that are going to be bolder. Experts predict that curtains, bedding, and other room accents will follow suit and be more colorful as well. The bold colors are going to be especially popular in kitchens — while kitchens tend to be more minimalistic, the simple kitchen style is in the past. Colors that are expected to be especially popular are jewel tones with copper accents. Richer color hues can make simple furniture and decor really pop throughout the entire home. And even though geometric patterns have gained popularity in the past few years, those types of patterns are going to continue to be seen throughout homes this year.
There are a lot of different elements of a home that can be changed during a home remodeling project. In fact, more than four out of five homeowners who are renovating choose to replace major bathroom features like flooring, countertops, and sinks. If you’re one of these homeowners, you may want to consider a bucket or trough sink for the bathroom. This style of sink is vintage and making a massive comeback. In the bedroom, modernized canopy beds are expected to be a hit. A minimal canopy bed can add a touch of elegance to any bedroom. As for furnishing finishing, matte is in over high-shine. Matte finishes can offer a relaxed aesthetic but with a flare of high-tech feel. And concrete is slowly making its way into homes as well — concrete countertops, tiles, and other furnishings can give a clean look to any room.
It’s no secret that technology has taken over today’s homes. From Alexa and Google Assistant devices to smart appliances, more and more homeowners are investing in technology for their houses. And with the USPTO receiving more than 500,000 patent applications every year, new technology for homes is continuously being released. Experts predict that home technology will continue to be popular this year. This is especially true when it comes to smart doorbells and home security. In the kitchen, experts predict there will be more cooking app companies work with appliance manufacturers to bring smart features to fridges.
Being an adult gives you a lot to worry about — from insurance and bills to work projects, and with about 77% of cars needing repairs, you probably have to keep that in mind too. But this year, you should focus on improving your home. Keep these 2019 home trends in mind and consider implementing them into your home for a fresh, new feel.
