With a new year comes new trends. What will be hot this year? While many existing trends are slated to remain popular, a number of new trends are also emerging. Here are some of the predictions for what will be on trend for this year.
Whether on the floor, walls or as accents, the prominent use of tile remains on trend, especially in bathrooms and kitchens.
Wallpaper remains hotter than ever. Whether you choose to use it on an accent wall or to cover surfaces in an entire room, wallpaper provides an opportunity to infuse color and texture into a space.
Tone on tone
Yes, it is still OK to infuse bursts of color, but monochromatic or tone-on-tone interiors remain modern and fresh.
The trend of mixing different cabinets in the same space started roughly a decade ago. This mix of colors and materials remains on trend.
Hygge is still hot as it relates to infusing cozy elements into a home, such as fireplaces.
As society continues to pivot more and more, workers will continue to work from home. The home office trend is predicted to continue to grow.
Black and white
Many people continue to look for a color palette that is timeless yet elegant, and black and white remains a popular choice.
Bronze, brass and copper
While traditional finishes such as chrome and nickel have their appeal, many are opting for more unexpected finishes such as bronze, brass and copper.
Mirrors are back in vogue. Whether you are using them down a hallway or in a series to mimic the look and feel of windows, a generous use of mirrors remains a popular trend.
From red to black, blue and even purple, the trend remains to incorporate color and individuality into social areas such as the kitchen.
