Whether you’re building a new home and looking for design ideas or just remodeling a single room in your 12-year old home; here are some of the latest design trends for 2017 shared by our friends at Floor & Décor in The Colony, TX.
Interior Wall Colors
White on white continues to be a big trend in kitchens and bathrooms for the clean airy feel that it brings. Black and grey are also being mixed in to break up the white or complement non-white pieces in your room.
The new “natural” color for homes is moving towards “greige” which is a soft mixture of grey and beige which you are seeing a lot in remodeling shows like Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines. It’s being used on floors, walls, and even in the furniture. You may also see it being used a lot in beach homes, particularly in flooring which gives a grey weathered look to the browns and tans. It’s been around since the 1980’s in fashion, but has never been so heavily used in home interiors until now.
The new wood-look tiles continues to become more and more popular in a lot of spaces, so expect to see a lot more of that along with other natural appearing textures like fiber in tile format.
An accent wall use to be just a space with another complementary paint color. Accent walls are now moving towards rich textures, uneven surfaces, and all kinds of new materials from glass, to wood, to rough fabric. And now, ceilings are getting the same treatment due to advances in very strong polymer mortars that allow wood and tile to be glued right to the ceiling.
Tiles and Shapes
If going with tile, square is definitely out, unless if used in borders and accent sections. Rectangles and arabesque tile are definitely in style.
Large format tile (LFT) is now the way to go in entry ways and spaces where you want to make the space feel larger. This would be tile where at least one side is 15″ or larger.
