Design Trends of 2018


Posted: May 11, 2018 by Step Beyond Media

We are almost halfway through 2018 and the design trends in real estate are now firmly in place. Many people try to keep up on the hottest trends, from clothing to accessories. Why not stay up-to-date on real estate trends also? Keeping your home up to date looking will ensure future buyers hold an interest should you choose to sell it.


Some of the biggest trends of 2018 are trends that are simply making a comeback. Others are trends you may have never seen before. Either way, check them out and see if you find some you like to keep your house looking new and chic!


  • Metallic finishes

While some people added little metallic items throughout their home over the past couple of years to give it a little shine, 2018 is bringing bigger items than the small metallic fringed throw pillow that you can find on people’s couches. We’re talking metallic end and coffee tables. Enough to really brighten up any room.

  • Vintage lighting

Copper pendant lights are very in right now. Utilizing these light fixtures in the kitchen give the kitchen a bit of an industrial feel but mixed with a few silver and gold small appliances your kitchen will become your favorite room in the house.

  • Geometric everywhere

From area rugs, to backsplash or even as small as an accent pillow in the living room, geometric patterns give your home a little texture. If you’re not big in geometric, start small and adjust to the different style. It may grow on you!

  • Patterned flooring

Patterned flooring is making a comeback! Not only are patterns in the floor a hot trend, but some of the colors that are being used are eye-catching. Adding the patterned flooring in bathrooms will change the entire appearance of your bathroom in the best way!

  • Velvet and Suede

Velvet has made a big comeback in furniture. People have begun placing plush velvet sofas in their living rooms, adding a warm and comfortable vibe to a space that maybe wasn’t used as much as it will be with this new trend!

  • Jewel tones

People are keeping their tan and gray couches and adding a touch of color with jewel colored throw pillows and blankets. These colors add the right amount of vibrant color to a once colorless space. Change up the colors based on the season to keep your room looking new and fresh!


While some of these trends may seem off and a bit old-school, pairing them with the furniture and home designs of today will add a spark to your home that will draw people in and increase the appeal of the interior if you end up selling your house.
