10 Top Design Trends for 2018

After reading several articles from HGTV and attending a seminar on new trends for housing, here is a summary of ideas to stimulate your imagination.

10 Design Trends for 2018

  1. Colorful Kitchens, with cabinets that are not gray or white
  2. Bolder saturated colors like deep blues, or softer colors reflective of nature like celadon, birch bark, hyacinth violet, and sky blue.
  3. Rose gold accessories instead of brass
  4. More metallic in wallpaper, tiles, and accessories. Quartz countertops now come with silver in them to reduce the risk of salmonella.
  5. Disappearance of appliances in stainless steel by using paneling to make kitchens look more spacious
  6. More curved and softer lines in furniture
  7. Wallpaper is coming back with more nature-inspired prints and modern geometric patterns
  8. Open plan dining creates a sense of flow and brings socializing back to the dining table
  9. Islands in the kitchen that look like furniture
  10. Walk-in pantries for small appliances, dishes, and “stuff” which clutter kitchen counters and make the “open concept” not as attractive
