5 ways to accomplish 2018 Interior Design Trends

This years design trends have been predicted, here are some products to help achieve that desired look.

Last year we published a similar article on how you can accomplish the predicted Interior Design Trends of 2017. With the success of that article, we have decided to go at it again this year.

With an array of online articles and magazines publishing predicted design trends, you are all probably well aware of what is expected to be hot in 2018. So, we thought we would help out a little and provide 5 tips, backed with photo inspiration and example products to help achieve these looks.


1 – Dark, Reddish Brown Wood Finishes

Colour trends for 2018 are expected to see an influx of Reddish Browns timber finished. Camel, Rust, Tabacco and Brown Blacks are expected to take over from the previous years pastels, emerald green and navy blue.

Combining these colours with natural greys, green leafs and blacks can really lift a room to the next level.

2 – Strong, Bold Colour in Bathroom & Kitchens

Designers are looking at making a statement within the key rooms of a residential property, restaurant or office fit out. With these areas traditionally being white and clean in colour, statement pieces can be used to quickly and easily create that wow factor without breaking the budget and refitting these areas.

2018 is set to see plush, padded and comfortable furniture pieces take off. Multi-use furniture will also surge as interiors look to provide agile spaces.

5 – Concrete

Hitting hard in 2017, concrete, whether it be real or concrete looking materials, is expected to continue to surge in 2018. Given it’s plain, greyscale tone, it’s important to use soft furniture and colour to lift the room and remove from a stale impression.
