Out with the old, in with the new. 2016 had a lot of popular trends pop up, and a few disappear.
In- 2 Tone Kitchens
The newest trend is 2 tone kitchens. Keep it classy, chic, and timeless with upper cabinets that are white, or neutral, and then go bolder with the lower cabinets by going with either a more traditional wood color, or something darker. This new trend will keep your home looking modern, and sleek. There are many different variations to choose from.
In- Colored & Matte Appliances
Redesign your kitchen with black bronze stainless steel appliances. It is still stainless steel so it will match most cabinet styles. Matte finished appliances is also a unique way to make your home stand out, a matte finish is not shiny or glossy which will give your home a high end look at the same time not taking away from the focal points of your kitchen like the countertops or custom cabinets.
In – Subway Tiles
Subway tiles were a quick growing trend not too long ago, and have proven that not all trends grow fast and fade off quickly. Subway tiles can be ordered in different sizes and colors to offset your home from any other design. You can really change the layout of your custom spaces by laying your subway tiles vertically or horizontally. But if you really want to change things up and draw a truly custom look try making an artistic design, like symmetrical patterns throughout your shower or backsplash.
Out – Oversized Furniture
A once popular trend was oversized furniture. Most renovations or custom homes feature an open concept these days, by putting oversized furniture in those spaces you may be defeating the purpose of the open feel. Oversized furniture can make a space feel cluttered, and it can take up too much room. Oversized furniture could limit you from decorating the space the way you want. Smaller furniture and custom pieces are the newest trend. Less in more.
Out- Chalkboard Paint
Chalkboard paint was all the buzz for a few years, and the trend has fizzled out. It is a trend that still works in restaurants when making a drink menu, just not in a home. Solution to this is an accent wall that sparks your attention, whether it is a bold paint color, or a brick wall.
