These Nine Design Trends are Sure to Shine in the New Year

New year, new trends! From sunshine yellows to statement lighting, take a gander at these inspiring design trends that are sure to make strong statements in 2017.

Mismatched cabinetry has gained traction in kitchen and bathrooms with two tones of colors. Also, be on the lookout for different textures to add contrast to the “mismatched trend.”

EXTRA-LARGE format tiles make a massive push. Whether in bathrooms, flooring or adorning a fireplace surround, these extra-large tiles pack a punch and are low maintenance. Think beyond 12” x 24” and focus on feet, maybe even 3’ x 6’!

Fireplaces take center stage again as we move into fall. New advances in gas and electric options are hassle free, cozy alternatives to wood burning fireplaces.

Large scale lighting is taking statement lighting up a notch. If the scale of the room accommodates, go big and bold with a focal lighting piece that portrays personality.

Moderated modern is taking shape with a return to softer lines with an eclectic, artisan feel. This comfortably, stylish design is an innovative fashion (not fad) that has a broad market attraction and timeless quality.

Architectural elements created by 3D printing give praise to advances in technology. Whether in tiles, or now even in concrete forms, 3D printing creates waves of opportunity to make architectural art.

Dusky blues and sunshine yellows bring accent colors to life, while grays keep gracing paint palettes, accessories and finishes. And, of course, PPG’s color of the year, Violet Verbena, will start making an appearance.

Bathrooms with high design. Accent walls, statement lighting and seamless spa showers turn these spaces into zen-like retreats.  

Black matte finishes keep the matte trend standing strong while adding a clean, confident element to interiors. Keep an eye out for this trend, particularly in lighting as well as kitchen finishes and fixtures.
