Interior Design Trends for 2018

Every January, home decor experts weigh in on the trends that will be popular throughout the year. Here are 5 interior design trends that you should be using in 2018.

1. Concrete accents throughout the house

Concrete first made its appearance in interior design a few years ago, and has now become integrated in more unusual places such as furniture, wall coverings and accessories. Materials with a concrete appearance can also be found in various finishes and colours. It’s an alternative that can be quite cost effective.

2. Matte black finishes

Dare to try a matte black finish for your kitchen and bathroom hardware and faucets. While it was once reserved for the high-end market, it is now possible to find more affordable models. Kitchen cabinets in matte black finish will definitely make a statement when paired with rich shades of wood.

3. Fish-scale-patterned tiles

Are you looking for a simple pattern for your backsplash that moves away from the traditional metro style tiles? Why not consider one of this year's trends: a fish-scale-patterned backsplash? It blends in well with different styles of kitchens. Several manufacturers now offer this tile pattern, which you will surely enjoy for many years to come.

4. Photo gallery walls

Whether it’s family photos, pictures with a same theme, or even crafts by your kids, a photo gallery wall allows you to display your images in frames of different shapes and colours. Placing this gallery along a stairwell with a high ceiling gives you many fun and interesting options.
