Spruce Up the Kitchen
Tired of the usual color palette in your kitchen? Wooden cabinets are nice, but white tiles and neutral schemes are finally giving way to a splash of color. Sure, white will always be a classic choice, but greys and blues are taking over.
If you are feeling adventurous, grab a few buckets of paint from your local hardware store and give your walls a makeover. Do not be afraid to experiment with a color you enjoy. The possibilities are endless when creating your own unique space.
Keep It Going
Do not stop with the kitchen! Expand those vibrant colors to the rest of your home this year, too. Rusts, tobacco browns, black, and earthy reds are all being used to make living spaces feel just a little bit warmer.
Inspired by earthy tones of the 1970’s, these colors separate themselves from dated avocado greens or mustards with a richer tone. If you have a free weekend, do not be afraid to paint the town, I mean, house, red.
The days of white and stainless-steel sinks are coming to an end in 2018. As the modern farmhouse style continues to flourish, more homeowners are opting for stones, composites, and darker hues.
These materials employ a simpler feel, making for a more calming environment. Keeping things crafty, you can always match a new sink with a new coat of paint or personalized décor.
Bathroom remodeling is an excellent time to have your plumbing checked by a professional or to have one install your sink in the first place. Skip the usual plumber and head online to a site like Plumbing Fix. Their fast and reliable service is sure to fit your schedule.
Everyone has seen those subway-like tiles in their local hardware store. While they might look nice, homeowners are opting for more contemporary alternatives. Think wood, concrete, resin, and even fabric when adding backsplash to your kitchen or bathroom. Best of all, this is an easy DIY project.
Florals Are In
If you are handy with a brush, then you may want to paint floral patterns overtop of your new chosen paint color. If not, do not worry. Head to your local craft store where you can find everything you will need to create beautiful floral displays in any part of your home.
Retro Meets New Age
Crafty home do-it-yourselfers are getting rid of the modern lighting found in nearly every home. Take those fixtures and spruce them up with some classic textures such as scones, electric lanterns, and pendants.
These distinct lighting fixtures can turn any room into a one-of-a-kind space. Do not be afraid to add a splash of the 60’s or 70’s to your modern rooms in 2018, either.
Sorry marble, concrete is working its way into homes this year. Not only is concrete more affordable, it is also a high impact design element. Homeowners are experimenting with this material in everything from pendant lighting to furniture, so do not be afraid to get a little crazy with it.
These are just a few of the crafty trends taking over 2018. Keep an eye out for millwork detailing, minimal bedroom design, and bucket sinks as the year progresses. With a little DIY know how, you can have your home looking as unique as they come while sticking with the latest in design trends.
