Interior design trends for the new year

With a new year comes a new you, and redecorating your home with the newest trends may be just what you need to feel like you have a fresh start. Your home is where you spend at least half your time, and those who work from home are there even more. You need to feel comfortable and happy with the decor. Freshening it up for the new year can make you feel more comfortable and will match your current style. Here are some of the top interior design trends people are following in the new year.

Funky Barstools

One of the newest trends for the new year is to get funky barstools in different styles and colors than you might traditionally expect. You would be surprised how different the look can be in a room by simply adding a pop of color to the furniture or with a different barstool design.

Update the laundry room

The laundry room is one of the rooms in your house that often gets ignored when it comes to decor. But that is about to change in 2017 when laundry rooms become one of the top areas in your home to decorate. Adding shelving and storage provides functionality. Adding light gives it a more cheery feel. You can even put up decorations that just make it feel more like a place you want to be instead of a place where you do work. Maybe it will even  help you accomplish a new year goal of staying on top of the laundry.

Neutrals are back

Beige and other neutrals were considered too boring and didn’t add enough to a room. But now we are starting to realize neutral colors are perfect for a wall because they make an excellent backdrop for your wall decorations and furniture. In 2017, we’ll see more neutral wall colors like beige again.

Stained cabinetry

In 2016, all white cabinets were big and made a huge splash in kitchens across the country. Well now that trend is fading slightly and we plan to see more wood cabinetry in the future. Cabinets that are stained with a lighter wood color are becoming the next big thing.

Baseboard heater covers

Baseboard radiators were a big thing in homes for a long time, which means you may have to figure out how to deal with the ugly look of them at some point. One amazing way to cover them is with baseboard heater covers, which should be a big design feature in homes for 2017.

Special Vanities

Vanities are so boring, but they don’t have to be if you make your own. Convert an old chest or filing cabinet into a vanity, and you have a fresh new look for your space. This is a big trend for 2017.

Creative flooring

One thing to expect in 2017 is for floors to be part of the decor. Rather than doing a boring wood or carpet floor, people will be doing design on the ground. One example of this is to use a bunch of pennies to cover the floor and be used as a decorate floor.

Change in kitchen tile

While the popular thing in the past has been a backsplash behind the cabinets, in 2017 you’ll start seeing people decorate by doing a whole wall full of tile. Some people are going so far as to completely tile every room in the kitchen.
