Do you want to know more? Keep reading to discover the hottest interior design trends of 2019, from hardwood floor colors to furnishings.
Light Hardwood Flooring
While floors may not seem like a decorative element, they make a huge impact on any room. So, you’ll want to choose the right flooring when you update your home.
2019 is all about light hardwood flooring. Light grey and whitewashed hardwood floors are great for modern or sophisticated homes.
If you want to go natural, stick with honey or blonde hardwood floors. They’ll still give your home that warm and inviting feeling while remaining chic and in style.
Do you already have light hardwood flooring? Then you’re ahead of the game! View here for information about floor refinishing, so your hardwood floors will look brand new.
For the past few years, we’ve ignored ceilings and maintained that flat, white ceilings were the only way to go. But that’s changing next year.
In 2019, you can expect to see statement ceilings. Using bold or geometric wallpaper is perhaps the best way to achieve this and add interest to any room.
In the past few years, we’ve seen prints, like marble and Aztec take over the scene. 2019 interior design trends take a little inspiration from the night sky. That’s right – constellation prints will be everywhere.
You can go for patterned throw pillows and coasters to get your feet wet with this new trend or dive head first by going with constellation tiles and murals.
But don’t commit to constellations just yet – there will be another print fighting for the spotlight in 2019. Scales, commonly referred to as mermaid scales or fish scales, will be everywhere next year. We’ve already seen them gaining traction in 2018, and it seems like they aren’t going anywhere.
You can find mermaid scales on mirrors or throw pillows, although a favorite is to get scale tiles for bathrooms and kitchens.
Scales are going to expand in this upcoming year. You don’t have to stick with ocean colors anymore – you’ll be able to find scales in any colors to create a fun, geometric print that can be put on almost anything.
So the choice is yours – will your interior design prints come from the ocean or the night sky?
Fringes have an impressive history – they became mainstream in the classic 20s flapper look and made another comeback with the hippie movement in the 70s. So, it shouldn’t come to much surprise that fringes are back and trendier than ever.
Next year you’ll find them on curtains, pillows, lamps, and even mirrors. Pick up one or two fringy pieces as a simple and affordable way to create a stylish home.
If you’re looking to make a few quick updates to stay trendy, your furniture is the easiest place to start. By just swapping out your couch and chairs, you can create a whole new look for your living room.
Get rid of that sharp, square sofa and replace it with a curved sofa instead. The curved back makes them appear larger and cozier which is an overall theme you’ll find in 2019 furniture trends.
Are you wondering how else you can incorporate this cozy feel into your furniture? Go with velvet furnishings.
Velvet feels soft and luxurious to the touch, so you and your guests will never want to leave your living room. You can take this to the next level by finding big and plush velvet furnishings.
Opting for those light hardwood floors and pairing them with a soft rug will be the perfect final touch to your trendy new living room.
Dark Kitchen Cabinets
Giving your kitchen cabinets a fresh coat of paint is a great way to update your home on a budget. We’ve seen tons of cabinet trends over the years, but for 2019 we’re looking at dark kitchen cabinets.
While black and navy blue seem to be the go-to colors, don’t be afraid to put your own personal spin on this and go with a different dark color.
However, the days of all dark kitchens are in the past. Pair these dark cabinets with a light countertop and trendy light hardwood flooring to help brighten up the room and make it look more welcoming.
We’re pleased to announce that many 2019 interior design trends circulate around the idea of sustainability. You’ll see a lot of green materials being used as eco-friendly flooring, decor, and building materials.
You’ll also see an increased push for green kitchen appliances and upcycled pieces. Getting on board with this trend will help your home look stylish and it’ll help to save the planet, so it’s a win-win!
What better way to accentuate sustainable design trends than by picking the perfect colors to go with it?
Earthy tones in any room will be popular in 2019, with sage green being particularly trendy. If you like this style, consider opting for those light colored, but natural, hardwood floors to create an encompassing design.
Of course, there’s one easy way to incorporate green while further tying in the sustainability trend – houseplants! Plants have been trending for the past few years and they show no signs of slowing. So, get yourself a few large corner plants to bring some more life into your home.
