If you’re looking for design tips to spruce up your home for 2018, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve listed down 6 design trends that are expected to be big next year, based on feedback from’s network of users and home professionals.

A quick overview: Expect a lot of rustic and farmhouse-inspired themes to work and play with next year.

  1. Rich hues throughout the home

    In 2018, homes will be about warmer and richer tones. It’s all about making your furnishings and décor pop. Popular tones for 2018 will include earthy shades like rust, burnt yellow, tobacco, and brown blacks. Reds and warm grays will also lend a sophisticated feel to your interiors.

  2. Colorful kitchens

    The classic white kitchen will always be timeless, but it can also appear stark or sterile. Liven things up in your kitchen and match the warm, rich overall color scheme of the entire house.

    Bid adieu to stainless steel and go for copper or bronze faucets. Remodel with stone or granite composite countertops and sinks in dark gray or brown hues. You can complement these surfaces by updating your storage cabinets with stained wood doors.

    You can also incorporate Pantone’s 2018 color of the year, which is Ultra Violet, in accents like a sprig of lilacs in a jar, or go all out by replacing your backsplash with Moroccan tiles in patterns that are predominantly violet.

  3. Refreshing floral highlights

    American homes will be as fresh as spring throughout the year with the big return of floral designs. To make this design work in your abode, go bold with high-contrast colors and oversized prints.

  4. Minimalism and millwork in bedrooms

    Houzz sees bedrooms shifting to more casual and minimalist styles in 2018, replacing the bold and dark-themed trends that prevailed in 2017. The switch will welcome a calm and serene vibe that will rejuvenate your precious resting space. Opt for delicate fabrics and simple yet functional fixtures in soft neutral colors to make this change work.

    Another bedroom trend to keep an eye on is the return of shiplap and millwork detailing on walls. The effortlessly homey wood board design is expected to give standard paint and wallpaper walls a run for their money in 2018.

  5. Vintage fixtures

    Retro-styled fixtures are sure to work well with the preceding design ideas. Houzz confirms that homeowner sensibilities are trending toward the vintage aesthetic, favoring aged pendant lights for example as noteworthy additions or upgrades for living rooms or kitchens.

    Even your bathrooms can get a design boost with a vintage-inspired style update. Remodel your vanity with wide and deep trough sinks – a switch that will surely complement a millwork-detailed bedroom wall.

  6. Concrete and stonework accents

    In 2018, concrete will be more than just building material. It will also figure into more creative and decorative applications. Concrete accents work well for framing and reinforcing doorways, windows, and kitchen pass-through windows. You can also apply intricate stonework to create a more artsy feel.
