Design Trends to Ditch in 2018
Design trends come and go. In 2018, here are the trends that should be ousted.
A basic chevron pattern is a simple zigzag pattern that incorporates two colors. The design has been exploding all over the design scene. However, the pattern can become overbearing and busy. It can look cute in children’s rooms, but it’s time to say goodbye to it for adult rooms or living spaces. If you are still interested in the chevron pattern, consider a different pattern that gives the same effect, such as a herringbone.
Overstated hood fan
Hood fans were never meant to be aesthetically pleasing. They were built for solely utilitarian purposes. In 2018, interior designers expect to see a return to a more simple and clean appearance in the kitchen.
Brass has been used to bring a shiny aspect to your home. However, it can reach “overkill” status fast. If you really like the look of brass, try mixing it with other metals to dial it down or just use it for smaller accents in your home, such as for cabinet knobs.
Geometric tiles started out as a very unique way to add a backsplash to your kitchen or bathroom. However, the design has become overused, to the point where they aren’t unique anymore!
Marble itself is a timeless option for home décor. However, it’s time to get rid of the imitation marble. Imitation marble is often cheap looking and takes away from the overall look of your room.
While white-on-white everything is nice for a streamlined look, it’s a pain for upkeep. Guests, children, food…anything can cause unwanted or unintentional stains to appear. In 2018, expect to see richer shades, such as brown, black, and green.
Tropical prints can add a fun aspect to bohemian-themed rooms. However, the loud patterns are typically only good for the summer season. Unless you live in a tropical climate, these prints can seem out of place for most of the year.
Cement tiles may look nice, but they bring a few issues along with them. The most important of which is their longevity. Cement cracks easily, so you may have to consistently pay for repairs.
