Interior design is always changing. Trends come and go. With today being highly influenced by social media and trends being easier to access, the design world is evolving quicker than ever. It is essential to make sure the investments you put into your home are timeless. Investing in trendy colors, styles, or furniture can quickly make your home outdated. Here are three trends that become popular fast and may fade away as we approach the year 2020:
Terrazzo is a composite material with chips and flakes of marble, granite, and glass. These components make terrazzo extremely durable while giving it a very interesting look. It is a flooring option that is water-resistant and stain-resistant after it has been sealed. While this style became popular in the last couple of years, it is slowly fading out of popularity.
Black and White Primary Neutrals
Neutral colors will always be needed in households. They ground the design without making it too influenced by colors. Throughout time, primary neutral colors have been established. A few years back, beige and tan were put into every home looking to be sold. Recently, over the last decade, black and white have made their way into the market in everything from flooring, paint, countertops, and appliances. While these neutrals are great for creating a hard contrast, the craze is slowly fading out of popularity. Neutral beiges and tans are becoming popular again, while also muted color tones are now accepted as a common substitute for a neutral color choice.
When entering a model home over the last couple of years, minimalism was traditionally the style of choice. It was considered to help make the room feel more open and allow potential buyers to feel themselves moving into the space. The minimalist movement also affected many homes as homeowners loved the clean look in their atmosphere with little clutter. However, this prevented the privilege to express your individuality in your design. Maximalism is slowly becoming more common as minimalism begins to dwindle away in interior design preferences.
Trends come and go. Keep your eyes open for what is trending and what is going out of style. You do not always want to invest in something that is trending. Remember to stick to the classics when it comes to investments.
