Whether you’re updating your home to sell or for your own personal enjoyment, knowing the current design trends can help you make your home the envy of the neighborhood. From looking at Houzz and seeing what the experts had to say, we’ve pulled together the five top home design trends for 2015, from top kitchen designs to bathroom trends to make your home a real standout.
- Deep blues, like indigo and navy, are becoming all the rage on Houzz and Pinterest. Whether as an accent color or a room’s primary shade, a highly saturated blue can add a lot of drama to your home. Consider adding this hue to your home as throw pillows to your sofa or repainting your dining room this dramatic tone.
- Rustic furniture, especially when eclectically combined with contemporary and traditional furnishings, is going to be hot this year, too. One of the most fun trends we saw was mixing a modern, bar-height table with more rustic stools, like our winemaster’s tasting stool, to create a playful and eye-catching contrast.
- At the top of many wish lists this year is a vintage-style, freestanding bathtub. The experts are expecting soaking tubs to be huge this year — even beating out rain showers in popularity. When looking for a freestanding soaking tub, consider whether you want a clawfoot tub or a pedestal tub, and then begin to consider the finishes you might want. Whether you go with a bright copper tub — like our Matte Copper Clawfoot Bathtub — or a more subdued white pedestal tub, you’re sure to have a new part of your home that you’ll love.
- Many homeowners are getting excited by bold lighting choices this year. Modern chandeliers that provide plenty of light are really drawing people in for 2015. Look for something eye-catching without being distracting and be sure to think about how it will fit into your space. In some rooms, multiple hanging lights are better than one big one.
- Maybe we’ve been ahead of the curve at Rustic Sinks, but the experts are saying copper is going to be this year’s “It Metal,” as the popularity of stainless steel is waning. From big copper sinks that draw the eye to accents like faucets, light switch covers, towel hooks and even backsplashes, many homeowners are looking for ways to integrate this striking metal into their kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Consider placing larger swaths of copper in rooms like the kitchen or bathroom, and then softer accents of it in bedrooms and living areas to help tie each room in your home together.
