As a Langley REALTOR®, I understand that, whether you are selling your Langley home or are thinking about buying a home in the area, keeping up with the latest interior design trends for 2018can help create a space that appeals to a wider audience. If you are looking to update your space, here are some of the upcoming interior design trends that will make it big in 2018.
1. Shapely Furniture
This year is all about embracing curves and taking inspiration from the 1970’s. Furniture pieces will start to pull away sharp boxy lines in favour of more quirky curves and softer edges. Items that are shapely or even circular, such as swivel chairs, round cushions, and sloped mirrors, will be extremely popular this year, especially when paired with a punch of pigment or a funky pattern.
2. Dark, Cozy Colours
While 2017 interior design trends were all about creating a classic yet modern look by using white-on-white pieces, 2018 will take the opposite stance in favour of darker colours, especially jewel tones. This year’s colour palette is all about using dark, lush colours to create a cozy and comfortable environment in any room of your Langley home. Some of the most popular colours for this year will include violet, sapphire, and emerald green. While these colours can make a statement in any room, there will be a huge swing toward using these colours in kitchens, along with lighter stained cabinets that feel more raw or natural.
3. Storage Spaces
Storage spaces will make a huge splash this year, as the growing desire of organization in personal spaces helps eliminate the sacrificing of storage for style. Storage spaces this year will be all about combining style and function throughout the home. Kitchens will also move away from the once popular trend of open shelving in favour of more cabinetry. New storage spaces should invoke warm grays, blues, creams, and natural wood grain tones in order to pair nicely with the darker tones that will be favoured this year.
4. Natural Elements
Natural wood elements in both accent pieces and furniture will help create a down-to-earth quality that complements a wide range of interior styles. Wood is also an extremely durable material that is perfect for uses in high traffic areas. Other natural elements, such as stones that feature surprising colours and designs, can also be incorporated into a variety of spaces with ease. Some of the most popular stone materials this year will include, marble, onyx, agate, and alabaster.
5. Eclectic Designs
The biggest interior design trend in 2018 will be to create spaces with more personality. This means using different patterned wallpaper or bright floral prints paired with organic textures and neutral palettes to create an appealing elegance. When trying to pick an eclectic design for your Langley home, try thinking about layering furniture from different areas combine with different textures.
