Architecture and design are always a dynamic sector, with trends changing every year. As a homeowner, its good for you to keep up on what’s new in home design. You might not like some design trends, but there are undoubtedly some that you can incorporate if you want to keep things fresh. Here are five design trends that experts say will dominate 2019.
More and Richer Colors in the Home
Designers are predicting that kitchens will be more colorful this year, as homeowners forego white and cream colors in favor of warm wood hues (ex. mahogany) and refreshing neutrals (ex. blue). People are starting to take risks with colors in the kitchen and these tones will give this key area a fresh and warm feel. People are also veering away from neutral colors in the living room and bedrooms. Expect to see pops of rich color like earthy reds and yellows to be paired with black, brown and rust tones.
Vintage Lighting Fixtures
Vintage lighting is making a comeback this year. A lot more people are appreciating the patina and unique quality these fixtures give a room. DIY enthusiasts have already taken to retrofitting vintage chandeliers, lanterns, and sconces with new technology. Online shops like Etsy and 1stDibs are also making it easy for homeowners to score vintage goods.
Calm and Casual Bedrooms
The idea of minimalist bedrooms are also taking hold. Homeowners are choosing modern but minimalist furniture in their personal sanctuary. Unlike the other parts of the house, neutral and calming color palettes will be dominant in bedrooms. Combine it with simple furnishings and soft fabrics and you’ll have a soothing and calm place to rest.
It’s Concrete’s Time to Shine
Concrete has now taken the limelight away from marble. While it has always been used as flooring or for countertops, concrete is now being used in a number of unique and interesting ways. A number of design houses have come out with home accessories, furniture, and even pendant lighting using concrete.
Stylish Sinks are on the Rise
It seems that people are tired of sterile white or stainless steel sinks, which explains the rising popularity of darker hued composite sinks. The Farmhouse style is still going strong, with design experts expecting trough and bucket sinks to remain popular. These deep, wide, and low maintenance sinks are perfect for small spaces and help establish a rustic and bucolic home setting.
