Re-posted from http://www.budgetdumpster.com/blog/home-design-trends/ BY KEVIN ROSSIGNOL ON OCTOBER 5, 2017 Keeping on top of the newest home décor and design trends can be difficult. That’s why we’ve started a list of the five hottest interior design trends so you can stay ahead of the curve without having to thumb through fifteen different magazines. So grab a cup of coffee and get your paintbrush and hammer ready as we take a deep dive into what 2018 has in store. Trend #1: Vibrant Color Schemes Are Coming Back As you’d expect, neutral colors such as gray, beige and everyone’s new favorite paint color, “greige,” are still the trendiest in terms of home design and décor. However, brighter colors are picking up steam. As Amanda Gates of Gates Interior Design explains, “Blush pinks, reds and greens are making a comeback but neutrals still reign supreme.” If you’re tempted by the brightness, consider painting an accent wall instead of going all-in on one color to see if it fits your style. Looking for an even smaller splash of color? Try adding colorful accessories instead. Here are a few ideas to get you started: Lamps Plants Artwork Small chairs Throw rugs Throw pillows Trend #2: Metallic Accents Metallic touches are one of the biggest (and shiniest) home décor trends right now and will continue well into 2018. However, it’s very easy to overdo it when it comes to shiny surfaces. The best way to incorporate this home trend is to keep things basic, such as hanging a silver-accented mirror on a wall or buying some copper end tables. Of course, no one will judge you if you want to go heavy on the metal. If you’re looking for wall-to-wall shine, you can easily find metallic wallpaper on home décor sites such as Wayfair and Houzz, each with a variety of patterns and sheens to choose from. Trend #3: High-Class Kitchen Elements Once again, Amanda Gates lays out the latest home design trends in the kitchen: “Quartz counters, lower and upper cabinets in different finishes, appliances in fun colors, layouts that promote ease of use, cement tile backsplashes.” Quartz is a popular choice for countertops because it goes with so many different styles. Mixing up the finishes on your cabinets makes them stand out more. As for kitchen layouts, HGTV has an article outlining a few designs that will help you move around the room a lot more easily. Of course, if you aren’t ready for a full-on kitchen remodel, you might try your hand at upgrading your backsplash or appliances. You can use virtually any cement tile as a backsplash, just make sure it doesn’t clash with your new oven. Trend #4: Geometric Patterns...
