When you decorate a space, you’ll probably want to show it off to anyone who comes into your home. An easy way to make your space look perfect is to make sure that’s it’s consistent with the times and the trends. And there’s no better time to update your home decor than the start of a new year. There are a number of trends that will peak in 2018, and you need to have them in your space.
For starters, the color of this year is blue. At the beginning of each year, paint brands will designate a specific color to be the “color of the year.” So, with this year’s color being blue, you should head out to the fabric store and start shopping. You can replace the fabric on different pieces of furniture to add a pop in an all-white room. You can also search for different blue throw pillows that would work perfectly with your living room sets. If you don’t want to change your furniture but are looking for something bigger, why not paint? Painting your walls a shade of cool blue will add a calming effect to your room. Blueish-green colors will also be extremely popular throughout the year, so finding home decor in that color will look awesome.
Another trend that will keep growing throughout 2018 is blackened floors. Black has been an extremely popular choice in terms of furniture and plumbing fixtures. So, seeing it on floors isn’t surprising. The black flooring adds something to the room that sofas or coffee tables might not be able to. Now, your whole floor doesn’t have to be black. You can spice things up with black tiles or charcoals instead.
This year, it’s time for plants. You can expect to see plants in everyone’s home throughout 2018. They’re a great accessory that, if you buy the right kind, won’t require a lot of care. Shower plants are also becoming popular. And yes, you read that right — plants in your shower.
Unfortunately, a HomeGoods survey found that 14% of respondents said their home furnishings actually make them feel gloomy and stressed. However, this can easily be fixed by keeping up with the trends. Switch up your wall colors, floor styles, and throw pillows, and bring in plants to liven up your area, making you happier.
