Each year brings new designs, trends, and ideas especially when it comes to home decor. While last year’s trends aren’t out of style homeowners begin to incorporate the must-have looks to keep up with the times. Interestingly enough, we have seen older trends circle back into the light.
For example, we’ve shifted from a modern design to a more Victorian-modern one (check out these great ideas for inspiration). The same applies to this year’s predicted trends, where we see a return of trends with old-school charm at the forefront. Moving away from the modern trend of sharp, straight design to a more relaxed, old-school, soft design. Read on to learn more about 3 unique design trends to add to your home this year.
As old-school, warm, earthy tones are making a comeback there’s no better way to showcase this than through a brick fireplace. Brick fireplaces, typically seen in a farmhouse or traditional-style homes, are perfect for any home. A timeless design that can be curated to any space. You can keep this unique design simple and stick with the original brick or you can modernize it by painting the brick or adding other elements like a framed wooden mantel. Whether you want it to be a focal point in the room, or blend with the rest of the space, updating your fireplace to a brick one is a great unique design.
Curves & Arches
Design trends are moving away from straight edges and bringing back more flowing curves and arches. You can add these in small ways, such as an arch to your new brick fireplace, or you can go all out, updating your doorways and entryways. Such designs create a more natural feel for your home.
Tip: If you don’t want to commit to extensive renovations, there are affordable trends. You can add curved furniture, mirrors, or art prints to emphasize the soft, curved design and feel.
If you’re planning to undergo a bathroom renovation, opt to install a floating vanity. Particularly well suited for smaller bathrooms, floating vanities give the illusion that the space is bigger than it appears. Floating vanities are available in a variety of materials. A stone floating vanity can provide your bathroom with just the decorative flair it needs. Additionally, you can opt for more storage options, with the inclusion of drawers and cabinets, allowing you to store all your bathroom necessities.
