The start of the new year is the best time to let go of the old and to bring in the new. It could mean cleaning out your closets and getting rid of the junk. It could also mean updating your home décor with this year’s hot new styles. Here are 10 design trends of 2018 that will make your home feel fresh, new and exciting again.


Bright and clear colors.

Good news, homeowners: the beige is out! No more beige, grey or greige. Neutral colorless interiors are so 2017. The new year is all about colors. Think rich deep yellows, emerald greens, luscious velvety reds, invigorating violets…There’s nothing wrong with bringing back some color into your life.

Dramatic kitchens.

Everyone loves a classic white kitchen with clean lines and a predictable layout. But predictable can be boring. In 2018 kitchens are elevated to the most memorable room in the house. It can be dark and moody, or it can be sensual and colorful, with handmade ceramic tiles and rustic-looking floors.

Stylish wallpaper.

Wallpaper is in again! It’s available in so many stunning designs, as well as materials and textures. Not to mention, it lasts longer than paint, easy to clean and more cost-efficient in the long run. Best suited for living rooms and bedrooms, wallpaper can give your home character and sophistication it was lacking in 2017.

Organic materials and displays.

 In our fast-paced world of invasive technology and information overload people long for simplicity and warmth. That’s why 2018 is all about reconnecting with nature. In home design terms it means organic sustainable materials, handmade objects, and an abundance of vegetation. Basically, anything that gives your home an outdoor feel.

Traditional design elements.

Forget industrial chic and mid-century modern. These design trends are so yesterday. In 2018 we’re coming back to the basics: clear simple patterns (think: black and white stripes), traditional wood furniture, monochromatic decorations. No clutter. No complications. Just peace and relaxation.

Light wood floors.

Beautiful richness of wood is always in fashion. In 2018 the trend is for lighter, “blonde” varieties of wood, such as maple, white oak, red oak, ash and bamboo. With blonde wood your home will appear larger, lighter and more open. It’s also more forgiving than dark wood to wear and tear, which is important to many homeowners.


Brass is the metal de jour in 2018, but the larger trend is for the eclectic mix of metals. Metallics are always elegant, and they create a layered look that is particularly chic. Try mixing gold and silver, or bronze and copper to create a complex, interesting design.

Around the world

Do you want 2018 to be the year of travel? Then reflect it in your home design. This year we embrace tribal prints, animal designs, antique maps – anything that reminds us of the incredible places that are still on our bucket list.


Wabi-sabi is a Japanese concept of finding beauty in imperfection, and it’s a big trend for 2018. Not everything has to be new and shiny. Some design elements look more beautiful with flaws in them that show age or uniqueness. That means handmade items (especially pottery), antique or vintage items, and items with multiple layers, textures and effects.

Spa-like bathrooms.

Continuing the theme of home as a refuge, spa-like bathrooms take center stage in 2018. To transform your old bathroom into a tranquil and luxurious oasis, consider inexpensive solutions, such as installing matte black fixtures (another 2018 trend), buying new towels, adding candles, art and floral arrangements.
