2019 is in full swing, and after a seemingly endless winter, many of us will use the new season to welcome new changes into our homes. Spring is the season of change, and whether it’s the addition of some vintage light bulbs, or a darker kitchen, this gives us all the chance to give our homes a refreshing change.
As such, trying to figure out what is trendy when it comes to interior design can be easier said than done due to this everchanging industry.
However, there are some trends which really stick out this year and which can easily be incorporated into your home. Here are some of the most prominent trends which you can expect to see implemented in homes this year.
Dark kitchens have become popular over the past year or so, with online searches increasing by 90%!
Depending on the size of your kitchen, you can go all out with this trend or just incorporate a little into the space.
Whether you want to fully indulge in dark kitchens and choose all-black or add a touch of dark grey or splashes of navy, this trend can easily be implemented into your home.
Use darker colours on your cabinets, tiles, splashbacks, walls or even your appliances.
Darker colours add a sense of mystery to a room as well as making your interior incredibly unique.
Whether it is through furniture, wallpaper, flooring or even lighting, vintage style interior design has made a return. However, the best examples of vintage interiors are not overworked and can often be easily achieved by adding certain pieces to bring a room to life.
From soft furnishings such as rugs, cushions and curtains to experimenting with vintage light bulbs, the little touches can work a lot better!
Vintage style interiors have become one of the most effortless trends which adds so much character to your home.
We seem to spend more time in our bathrooms than ever before; usually, as we like to treat ourselves to a long bath to escape a manic day at work, this room invites you to unwind and relax.
Recently people have been turning their bathrooms into spa-like rooms with rainfall showers and whirlpool baths. However, it doesn’t stop there, cool greys, whites, golds and even greens are all hot for 2019.
Many are staying away from modern bathrooms and going back to basics with elegant features such as free-standing baths and vintage style sinks.
With the popularity of Hygge continuing, the bathroom is the best place to create a sanctuary just for us.
Spring is the perfect time to experiment with natural elements in your home, from exposed beams, cool metallics and much more.
You can easily incorporate natural accessories into a room. Colours such as white and grey stone work well in minimalist settings, while dark wood can be dressed up or down to suit any theme.
Cool natural browns are really on trend and are worth referring to when shopping for nature-inspired furnishings.
Raw textures such as wood, stone and raw textiles also work extremely well in rooms with a lot of natural light.
These elements can create a comfortable, cosy space that is perfect for relaxing in.
Last year saw the appearance of geometric patterns in wallpaper, flooring and soft furnishings and this trend doesn’t look like it is going anywhere.
Geometric patterns are likely to never to go out of style as the versatility of this offset pattern can easily be introduced to even the most minimal of rooms.
It can really warm up a space when being used on a feature wall or when it is incorporated into materials such as curtains or bedding.
House plants are known for bringing a room to life with a pop of colour and can be easily added to any room!
Plants help you reconnect with nature and help get rid of any stressful vibes. This has led to an increase in indoor to outdoor connections and a rise in rooms having a luscious, jungle-like vibe.
These are just a handful of trends which can be easily incorporated into your home. However, it is important to remember that interior design is all about letting your own personality and taste shine through to make your home feel more personal.
