In 2018, we will see some classic trends coming back in style. The use of dark colours, retro shades in furnishing will return. Below is a list of what we will see as the top trends in home decor and furniture this year.
n Retro colours will be making a comeback. For example, 'millennial pink' in upholstery, use of linen, rich fabrics such as velvet in upholstery rather than leather, will be in vogue next year. The classic black and white combination will be back in the home decor as well as in furniture.
n In metal, Gone are the days of rose gold, copper will shine more than any other metallic shade. Brass had made a comeback in 2016, it is expected to be in trend again.
n Going back to the roots, with a hectic and technologically driven lifestyle, people are trying to reconnect with their roots and prefer natural fabrics and traditional handicrafts. The traditional patterns provide a sense of comfort and security.
n Classic material, furniture with a velvet upholstery will be back in trend, though it was once considered old-fashioned. Th minimal and rustic decor styles that were popular in mid-2017 will stay popular this year.
n For kitchen cabinets and select walls in the room, people will be looking at colours such as 'avocado green', 'forest green', 'teal' and olive green. This year, we expect to see more solid wood fronts rather than a painted finish in cabinets, leading to a display of more sophisticated palettes
n One of the exciting things we expect to see this year is concrete accents, marble finishes in wardrobes, kitchen cabinets, more use of backsplash, making it easy to keep the kitchen tidy and refreshing.
n Two-toned kitchen cabinets can bring a unique life to space and can make a visual impact, adding a variation that adapts well to styles such as traditional and modern.
n 2018 will also see the classic range of kitchens coming back in style with the walnut wood finish being on top of the list for finishes. In the contemporary style, we will see glass fronts, painted shutters and extensive use of glass
n Both in living rooms and in the kitchen, we will see more of open shelves. The skeletal look in shelves will be a major decor trend.
