At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we know that updating a home can be daunting—after all, not everyone is an interior designer, so it can be challenging to know what sorts of updates to consider. That’s why we’ve put together this list of current trends in the interior design world. You might not follow exactly what’s trending, but perhaps it can inspire some great ideas for you. Read on to learn more!
Art and Décor
One of the quickest ways to spruce up a room or an area is to update the art and décor. Trending these days is artisanal, individualistic art—not the kinds of mass-produced work you can find in a big box store. For example, look toward handmade goods like macramé, woven blankets, or hand-thrown pottery. You might evn find some great handmade furniture. Right now, it’s trendy to have pieces that are curvy or scallop-shaped. On the walls, trends are toward bold, patterned wallpaper or wallpaper with distinctive prints, especially if it’s in mustard yellow.
Nature in the Home
Earth-friendly or nature-inspired materials are the rage. You’ll see reclaimed-wood walls, furniture, shelving, and accent pieces. You could also consider a mini garden—there are some great ways to create vertical gardens right on a wall. Or you can simply have a few herb plants in your kitchen window. For a Southwest flair, try a cactus garden. Or for a feel of the islands, focus on tropical plants. To add a natural look at the window, consider some Hunter Douglas, such as Heritage® Hardwood Shutters, which showcase the individual characteristics of the wood, or Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, which come in natural materials like woven reeds, bamboo, or grasses.
Kitchen and Bath
The kitchen and bathroom are the most visited rooms in the home. For a change in the kitchen, the trend these days is dark—for example, patterned backsplashes in dark tile, and some people are even painting their tile floor to go darker. A quick way to find the look is to paint your cabinets—you’d be amazed at what a little color will do to tired old wood. And in the bath, looks like bigger is better when it comes to the bathroom these days. People are trending toward large soaking tubs—or at the least a tub that’s a showpiece for the room. No matter what you’re looking to update, hopefully these ideas will give you a jumping-off point to start from.
