1. Goodbye Shower Curtains, Hello Glass Inserts

 

Say goodbye to shower curtains and hello to glass inserts for those tub-shower combos! This trend has been increasing in popularity recently, perhaps because it provides a sleek, open look and often, it makes a small bathroom look even larger than it did before.

3. Reclaiming Wood Accent Walls

 

Shiplap, reclaimed wood, and detailing with millwork for accent walls – particularly in the living room or bedroom – are a major home design trend you have seen and will continue to see throughout 2018. We all know where the shiplap and reclaimed wood trend comes from and how it quickly made its way into homes across America – *wink wink* Chip + Jo.

4. Forget About Muted Colors, Go for Bold

 

Grey, beige, and greige may be the interior paint colors of choice, but bolder statements are being made through furniture choices. Incorporating a bright- or bold-colored couch into your living space creates a bold statement for your interior design and décor. Whether you choose something to accent your home’s color scheme – like navy or you could go all out and choose a red or purple. Whether it’s just for a season or the next five years, in 2018, bold is beautiful.
