When it comes to remodeling or redecorating, we usually have a pretty good idea of what we want, because we all have our own tastes ; only, will it be next year’s design or so yesterday’s? This is an important decision to make, because design trends will not only generate the “wow factor” but also will make it more appealing in case of a sale.
Decoration: What Will Be Hot?
Interior design shows an inclination towards organic and sustainable materials, such as cork that can be used on many surfaces from walls to floors and accessories.
There is also the touch of sophistication that will come from an unexpected source : jewelry tones of polished nickel, gold, silver, cut quartz, opal, added to silk and sheer fabrics will make your place the most romantic and refined.
2017 Remodeling Trends
In the tiles department, terracotta is making a big comeback. The warm earthy tones, never quite uniform throughout, are adding color and a bit of spanish flair. To avoid mismatch and too many visual breaks, designers recommend to use terracotta flooring for a whole floor.
While an open floor plan is still popular to make the house look more spacious, the trend indicates people want the kitchen almost separate, or at least uncluttered. Design privileges hidden appliances and oversized storage to clear all counters.
