home design trends for 2018

You found your dream home at a dream price and swooped in before anyone else could buy it. You've lived there for years, making it your own.

Now, for whatever reason, you want to or need to sell it.

How do you convince other buyers that it could be their dream home as well?

Remodel and redesign.

If you want to increase the value of your home, here are four home design trends for 2018.

Using Earth Colors

In recent years, there's been a major movement towards environmental design. Homeowners want to bring nature indoors through the use of natural design and earthy colors.

Add colors that appear in nature to your home, such as light browns and greens. Use accent colors to highlight certain aspects of your design, but be careful: sometimes these colors dominate your design.

Take the earthy look a step further by adding wood pieces and siding to your home. Any environmentally friendly home-buyers will love the look and pay more for a home that appeals to their sensibilities. Millennial buyers are especially fond of this style.

The Statement Ceiling

Adding a statement piece to your ceiling is a great way to make your living space stand out. Had your eye on a chandelier but haven't had a good reason to buy it yet?

Now's your chance.

When selling a home, you want something that will help it stand out. Unique lighting fixtures instantly grab the attention of potential buyers and make your home memorable.

Stainless Steel Fatigue

People are growing tired of seeing kitchens with stainless steel appliances. While it gives off a clean appearance, it also makes some people think they are eating dinner in a hospital.

There's a growing appreciation for appliances that hide behind paneling and disappear from view when not used. Dishwashers and refrigerators that hide behind paneling make kitchens appear larger.

Also, while we're talking about the kitchen, feel free to move away from white and use wood tones when remodeling.

Expect To See More Curves In Home Design Trends For 2019

Gone are rigid lines and sharp edges. When designing your home, choose furniture with curves. It's visually appealing and safer for young children.

Curves give the appearance of elegance and style. Popular in the '80s, this type of furniture is starting to make a comeback in homes. Remember, when using curves, less is more. Keep your living areas clutter free and let each piece speak for itself.
