Home Design Trends to Try!

by Tammy Waugh

Home Design Trends change annually....and some years are better than others!  However, this year we see a return to many classic elements that have stood the test of time, while others bring a little edge and glitz to your home.  

If you're considering a home sale, targeting certain rooms for updates will be a key element in the successful sale and price of your home.

Here are the Top Design Trends this year according to Forbes magazine:

1. Satin Brass Hardware & Finishes- This bold and beautiful hardware looks amazing in kitchen and baths and has become a sought after update to many home buyers.  Try this in a variety of new hardware for kitchen cabinets.

2. Conversion Vanities- Looking to update your bathroom but can't seem to locate the perfect vanity for your home decor?  Recycle!  Do you have an old dresser or other piece of like furniture you love?  Repurpose it for a new bathroom vanity!

3. Maximize Kitchen Storage- So many areas of our kitchens end up wasted space. Take advantage of every nook and cranny with great space saving designs!  The interior of the cupboards doors, inside of closet doors, window seats and more.

4. Voice Activated Assistants- This year's consumer electronics show in Las Vegas touted the great voice activated home assistants with Amazon's Alexa leading the way with Google's 'OK Google' runner up.  One caution, these devices are always listening even if they seem dormant.  If you choose to utilize one, make sure you've read all the set-up instructions and use appropriately.

5. Add Green!  That's right, the wonderful green pallette is making a comeback in gorgeous shades...and it's appropriate for any room in the home! Whether you're painting, adding backsplash tiles or creating a new bathroom oasis, this color is the new 'go to'.

6. The Decadent Laundry Room- Laundry rooms are far from basic or overlooked!  Today's families need them to be functional yet luxurious at the same time.  Think fabulous lighting, maximizing counter and cabinet space, ironing boards, drying racks, individual folded laundry areas and more.

7. Creating Entryways that make a splash!  This is the entry point to your home, so spending a little more time and effort to make it look it's best is critical.  Pay attention to flooring, furnishing balance and color to make a dramatic focal point.
