Interior design is something that is constantly changing. New trends emerge every year. A modern interior design can really make a lasting impression on guests, and make you feel proud to live in your home daily. Not to mention, the resale value of your home will be higher if everything is up-to-date.

Here are some interior design trends for 2018 that will give your home the boost it needs.

Matte Black

Black is one of those timeless colors that goes with everything. While shiny black surfaces were in a few years ago, this year is all about matte. It is soft spoken, letting its understated nature come through while not taking away from other elements.

Antibacterial Material

Why not kill two birds with one stone when it comes to the material in your kitchen. Your cutting board can now be killing unsafe germs after you cut up meat for dinner. Or your countertops can have microtextures that actually break up microbial cells to prevent food-borne illnesses from spreading.

More Chopping and Baking Stations

Who doesn’t love to bake or chop up their favorite herbs and veggies for a big meal with the family? More and more homes are coming with chopping stations and baking stations, those being two of the most common activities in the kitchen. Why not get some installed of your own to spruce up your interior design?

Concrete Accents

There is something so modern, sturdy, elegant and beautiful about stone and concrete. It matches anything and allows you to achieve a modern yet rustic look, which is why it is such a popular trend in 2018. Try some concrete accents in your kitchen or living room for the best effect.

Bold Colors

Don’t hold yourself back on colors this year. From bright orange, to green, to everything in-between, you can safely go all out with bold colors this year and be in style. But be sure to space the colors out enough to give them room to shine, and balance with neutrals.

Matching up your interior design to your style and social vibe of the moment can be really fun. However, you want to make sure that you have the right trends in mind and not just fads. I hope the trends above help you decide on home decorations. Show everyone your personality and how in-touch you are with modern style.
