Are you thinking about renovating your house or updating it to a completely different style than it currently is? If so, pay close attention to this article. In it, we’ll talk about the leading decoration trends for 2018.
Some of them will likely require renovations, and that means an investment. However, other trends that we mention in this article can be done by investing very little money.
So, if you want to make a change in your home… don’t miss our article with 10 decoration trends for 2018!
1. Geometric textiles
Geometry has long been in style for elements such as lamps, paintings and other items. However, geometry in textiles is one of the leading decoration trends for 2018. This trend can be applied in many details of your home: rugs, cushion covers, bedspreads, etc.
It’s one of the trends that can create very charming spaces with lots of character. From Verdissimo, the leading producer of preserved plants and flowers, we recommend that you use textiles with geometric patterns in soft and cool tones to avoid “overloading the room,” though they may have a slight color accent.
In 2018, plants have become a key element in home decoration. They’re perfect for decorating any room, including bathrooms and kitchens, though they’re typically used to decorate corners of living rooms and interior patios.
Plants are responsible for giving that fresh and natural touch to a home, making it into a cozy space. Also, they provide color accents when the space has been decorated with cool tones such as grays, whites, blues, etc.
Wallpaper is an interior decoration trend that was fashionable many years ago and has gradually come back into style.
Depending on the decorative style, wallpaper uses solid colors, stripes, geometric shapes, two-tones, etc. In 2018, we’ll see wallpaper in many rooms of the home: living rooms, entryways, bedrooms, hallways and even kitchens and bathrooms.
However, it’s a must-have for decorating children’s rooms, as seen in the image below, where you can see geometric wallpaper with gray and white tones.
4. Full color kitchens
2018 decoration leaves behind traditional white and gray kitchens, giving way to color. Every day, more people are daring to decorate their kitchens with vibrant colors, giving them a more vintage look.
The most common colors are green, maroon and blue, as you can see in the image below.
These colors are used both in furniture as well as tiles, and elements such as lamps, vases, etc.
Minimalism has been replaced by other decorative styles over the years, including boho, farmhouse, country-style, etc. Although these styles will keep being popular in 2018, minimalism has gained traction. It’s a clean and fresh decorative style, based on the stripping away of unnecessary elements, with straight lines and under the motto “less is more.”
This decorative style uses colors that bring brightness to spaces, with “cool” tones such as: whites, grays, blues, blacks, etc. These colors, despite trends, are timeless and never go out of style.
6. Antique floors
Years ago, wooden floors were preferred by many people. However, this year mosaic or black-and-white floors are coming back in full force.
More and more often, decorators are betting on restoring old floors in homes instead of removing them, especially if they’re made of antique mosaics.
If you’re thinking of leaving your floor as is, it’s important that your home decoration is clean and, above all, that white is very present in all rooms.
If you want a house with personality… go for an antique floor!
7. Wooden beams
Wooden beams are as trendy as ever, even in urban homes. Before, these elements were used for decorating country homes, but more and more often, people are betting on them for city apartments.
They’re used on the ceiling as a decorative element, and even as shelves.
Wooden beams give a very special touch to homes, and although they usually fit with rustic country-style décor, we’ll see wooden beams this 2018 in decorative projects of various styles.
Who can say no to black? The color black is very fashionable for decorating this season, creating very sophisticated spaces.
We’ll see it in kitchens, dressing rooms, offices, living rooms and bathrooms.
Although there are many people who still believe this color isn’t suitable for decoration, if you know how to combine it with the right elements and colors… the space becomes magical!
In the image below, you can see a bathroom with black tones and white and golden details. Don’t you think it’s a very charming bathroom, with unique character?
9. Carved mandalas
Mandalas carved into wood and other materials have come into style in recent years… and this year, they’re still going strong!
They’re a key element for decorating walls in living rooms or bedrooms, as you can see in the image below.
They come in many colors, though white and brown are trend-setting this season.
10. Exposed brick
Exposed brick is another trend that continues this season. It’s typical of industrial-style decoration, inspired by New York lofts.
Usually, exposed brick only takes up one of the walls in the room, with the aim of keeping the space bright and not too “overloaded.”
