Whether you’re planning a major renovation or are just looking to spruce up your home with some small updates, you’ll want to check out the interior design trends predicted to be in demand for 2019, ranging from sustainable home design to earthy color palettes.
Sustainable Furniture and Décor
United Airlines has banned the use of plastic straws and this is just one example of an increasing number of corporations placing sustainability as a top priority. This focus will also be seen in home design trends in 2019, with sustainable furniture and décor becoming even more popular.
We’ll see leftover materials (such as marble) being recomposed in smart ways, indoor plants (except for succulents) used more for decorating and cleaning indoor air for various rooms, handmade décor elements and more. All of these interior designs serve the purpose of creating a visually appealing environment, while being produced in a way that leaves very little to no impact on the environment.
PPG’s color experts have announced their 2019 Color of the Year selection: Night Watch. This color is a rich teal that symbolizes community and nature and allows homeowners to create an environment in their homes that feels protective, beautiful, healthy and calm.
A mixture of beige and grey is also coming back, as these neutral tones are a lovely complement to the on-trend, earthy deep blues and warm greens.
Orange and yellow will also be appearing in a lot of 2019 interior designs, particularly in decorative accents, furnishings and paint.
Bold Backsplashes and Wall Colors
If you’ve been wanting a new backsplash for your kitchen or bathroom, now’s the time to do it. There’s no lack of exciting backsplash options to choose from, whether you prefer a bold patterned backsplash or one with a solid, impactful color such as orange or yellow.
Bold colors will also be popular for walls. Since interior design is moving away from the accent wall trend, you’ll want to choose a color you’ll love to use for an entire room.
Terrazzo and Light Wood Flooring
Terrazzo was a popular material choice for flooring, countertops and backsplashes in 2018 and is predicted to continue to be a trendy interior design option in 2019. Made by mixing marble, granite, quartz, or glass chips into a cement binder, this tiling option offers aesthetic appeal, versatility and durability.
However, terrazzo is expected to quickly become outdated. For this reason, we caution against investing in terrazzo to use as flooring for a large space or in floor-to-ceiling designs if you’re not going to love the look a couple of years from now. Instead, you may want to opt for using it in a smaller area, such as a hallway, mudroom or guest bathroom backsplash.
Light wood floors and wood-look floors will still be on trend in 2019. These flooring options, including our Carolina Timber Beige Wood Look Tile, provide a classic look that will remain in style for many years, offering timeless beauty. The other great quality about light wood flooring is that it complements a wide array of colors and décor styles. This means you can change other aspects of your room without having to invest in a new floor.
