Happy New Year from all of us at AG Millworks! A new year means new ideas, new styles, and new home design trends. Design pros are predicting what new designs will be big in 2019. From kitchen backsplashes, to flooring, to wall colors, to windows and doors, home design trends are always changing. If you are planning a home remodel, or you work in the home design industry, these are some of the design schemes to include in your projects!
Bold & Beautiful Backsplashes
One home design trend to expect in the new year is boldly patterned kitchen backsplashes. White, neutral kitchens have been one of the biggest trends in the past few years, and designers are predicting a transition to bolder color schemes and graphic backsplashes. Boldly patterned backsplashes can add a unique design element to your kitchen, and a pop of color in what would otherwise be a simple, neutral space!
The indoor-outdoor living trend will grow in 2019. Homeowners want to spend more time enjoying nature and making use of their outdoor living spaces. Eliminating walls to create open-air living is an element that homeowners and designers are gravitating towards. Indoor-outdoor living can be created with Bi-Fold Patio Doors and Multi-Slide Patio Doors, which open up to make large open spaces and expand indoor living spaces to the outdoor entertainment area.
Light Wood Floors
Thanks to the homeowners’ desire for bright open spaces, light wood floors are making a comeback in 2019. Light shades of wood as pictured above reflect more light and can be used in a casual or formal design setting. The light floor coloring isn’t limited to wood—all light-colored floors will increase in popularity this year.
Kitchen Passthrough Windows
Kitchen Passthrough Windows are a growing design trend that will increase in 2019. Passthrough windows are created using Bi-Fold Windows that foldaway and connect kitchen to patio. Additional dining space is created in the form of a breakfast bar and makes for easy outdoor entertainment!
Bold Wall Colors
Bolder, darker color choices will become popular in 2019. Homeowners are more adventurous when it comes to their wall color, and so 2019 will see an increase in new and exciting colors throughout the home! Again, design pros are straying from the typical neutral walls that have flooded the industry for a few years.
Floral Pattern Fun
Floral patterns for wallpapers and fabrics are going to be big in 2019. Florals have been around for a while, but design pros are predicting that we will see floral patterns explode in the new year!
Leafy Indoor House Plants
Indoor house plants are said to never go out of style, and that remains true for 2019. Indoor plants with large, shapely leaves are here to stay for 2019 because they add a natural, fresh, and airy feeling to the space. Besides their aesthetic benefits, most live plants actually improve air quality which is a real health benefit! If you worry about your ability to keep your indoor plants alive, you can opt for high-quality artificial plants that only require an occasional dusting but look as good as the real thing!
