Is a home remodel on your list of new year's goals for 2017? Or, maybe your new year's plan is to update your home to get it ready to sell? Better Homes and Gardens has put out a list of what they predict to be the top ten trends in home design and decor in 2017.
1. Matte Black
Matte black makes a sophisticated statement in the kitchen, and we expect to see a lot more of this bold look on cabinets and appliances everywhere.
2. Intergalatic Spaces
This is a step up from those sticky glow-in-the-dark stars you had in your childhood bedroom. Galaxy-themed accessories are flooding the decor aisles, and we are definitely hyped about it. Let your imagination soar with this cool DIY faux geode that we think looks a bit like intergalactic stone.
3. Copper Accents
tep aside, rose gold. The new metal trend is warm copper. Play it safe by putting your copper pots and pans on display in the kitchen, or go bold with a large copper light fixture in the living room. You'll love this look!
4. Bohemian Style
We used to think kilim rugs and other fabrics were strictly for Bohemian spaces. But we are happy to find out these wild prints can be incorporated anywhere! If you really want to make a statement, hang a kilim rug on the wall that'll be a pop of color enough for the whole space.
5. Patterned Tile
The new wallpaper is... tile? Indeed, it is! You better get used to this look, because bold, beautiful patterned tiles will be everywhere the coming year. We are seriously crushing on this black and white accented wall made entirely of tiles.
If you're looking to add some warmth to your living room, consider a smooth, velvety couch. This statement piece will have you looking luxurious and cozy all at the same time. Fun pops of color are especially popular in this fabric.
7. Jewel Tones
Instantly bring your walls to life with a fresh coat of deep, rich jewel tones. Dark blues, purples, greens, and gold make the rising pallet this year. If you're not looking to do a total paint job, scatter your home with a few jewel-toned accessories.
8. Faux-Stone Surfaces
Stone walls, granite, and marble will all be making appearances in homes this coming year. We love the look but aren't enthused about the price, so we are determined to find the best faux-stone surface for your home.
Hold onto your succulents, because 2017 is going to see a lot more greenery indoors. Start with small desk plants and work your way up to large houseplants that command attention in a room. Just be sure to do your research on watering and sunlight before committing to a plant!
10. Smart Homes
Get ready to live like it's the year 3000. Smart homes come decked out with all the coolest gadgets including voice-activated bots, hands-free faucets, and more. However, we are most excited about high-tech showers with programmed spray sequences for your relaxing pleasure.
