Next Year’s Affordable Interior Trends

The end of 2017 is approaching rapidly, and if you feel like your home could do with a bit of sprucing up here and there, we have gathered a few interior trends we anticipate will make waves in the next year.

If you are searching for some home décor inspiration, we have our eye on some of the home interior trends that will be cropping up in 2018 – a little something for everyone from retro 70s furnishings and colour palettes to homes filled with natural, organic materials and textures.

Colour comeback

We’ve enjoyed the paired back, whitewashed ‘Scandi’ style for a while now but it looks like 2018 will bring back a burst of colour. 2017 was all about Millennial Pink’s candy-sweet hues, which is forecast to stay popular, however more subtle, natural shades of peach, terracotta and 70’s inspired burgundy, orange and teal are to become popular in the home this year. As with any colour trend, it’s best to incorporate these by adding a splash here and there with new cushions, curtains, throws and other soft furnishings. Adding a lick of paint in updated shades can also provide an on-trend effect without breaking the budget.

Shiny Metallics

The rise of rose gold has meant it has lost its sheen for many, though classic coppers and brass remain bright and bang-on trend. Golds and silvers are also on the come-back too and are timeless additions to any interior. Incorporate metallic by swapping in new lamps, lighting fixtures and things like statement mirrors and other decorative pieces. You can even add a hint of metallic sheen with wallpaper on statement walls and throws in metallic woven fabrics.

Retro & recycling

Buying new is out, which can be a great thing for updating your interiors on a budget! Strong trends coming through for 2018 include a retro style and the introduction of reused and recycled items. Have a look for a bargain in reclamation, second hand and vintage spots, especially when it comes to suede and velvet upholstered items. Dark wood furniture is also to make a comeback this year, another contrast to the Scandinavian blonde pine, white painted furniture and flooring of more recent years. The upcycled trend continues as another budget-friendly deco idea, whether it be revamping old wardrobes or making coffee tables out of old trunks and cases – get creative!

Naturally inspired

Bring the outdoors in, as the trend for naturally inspired home décor is set to strengthen in 2018 too. Bringing lots of plants into living rooms and bedrooms as well as using organic materials and natural fabrics creates a feeling of simplicity and calm in the home, enhancing a sense of wellbeing. As people are living in a more eco-conscious way, it makes sense that their home interiors reflect this too. Swap plastics for homeware made from wood and ceramics – there are lots of makers and crafters selling unique pieces or you can even have a go at learning to craft items yourself!
