While the year is approaching towards its mid, there are good chances that you have started sifting through 2018 resolutions. It might be fine with your personal life but when as far as reinventing your living space is concerned, you need to be little more particular.
As per the report released by Trulia in December, only 6 % of homeowners plan to sell their home in 2018. Also 16% say plan to sell their home in the next two years. Simply, renovations are likely being on the rise in the coming year.
So,whether you are taking up renovation yourself or you choosing an expert handyman in NYC for the same, you need to know what to avoid.
Find out here some trends which seriously need to be kept out of the sight. Have a look:
The industrial trend arrived years back when former industrial buildings were renovated into loft-style living spaces. From ductwork, steel finishes, exposed pipes, to warehouse-style lighting, it has been loved for that really cool effect. But now the trend must go! Welcome the mixture of styles and leave it to the lofts. You can implement industrial style in small doses.
These have been a top choice for few years now. From backsplashes to laundry room, cement tiles have marked their presence everywhere. And now this must be stopped! Certainly, these look great, but you cannot overlook the fact that longevity is an issue. Secondly, the most common patterns are too bold, too graphic, and too bright, which don’t fit well into short spaces.
Pro tip: Even if you still want to go for this trend, prefer well-crafted design with appropriate pattern and color to make it a good choice for years to come.
Homes with neutral palettes have been admired for varying reasons. But now it is time to welcome richer color schemes. People are fed up of grays, whites, and similar shades. You can have them in the background but ensure to incorporate bold colors in the forefront. So even if you have recently invested in neutral hues, you can prefer an easy change.
This is another older style, a simple zigzag pattern which comes in two colors, that has been inescapable for the past few seasons. 2017 has seen the best version of the pattern in everything. From lampshades to backsplashes, it was omnipresent. However, you cannot ignore the fact that these don’t look good in adult living spaces.
This fanciful and exotic trend has made you feel like you are on a vacation. Regardless of this, the style tends to burn out very fast. Having pineapple, the flamingo, or the philodendron leaf, is not recommended. Such fun aesthetic and bohemian-styled interiors cater to be loud patterns, which seems to be good for a season. If you are in a tropical climate, you will gradually feel out of place after summer has passed.
Going green is the theme. But cactus decor was the win-win option for last year. In 2018, say no to spiky succulents in the corners of our living rooms. Being absolutely overdone, these look too edgy. It is hood to appreciate the desert beauty, but kitschy cactus prints aren’t recommended. You can leave the prickly plants to your yard space.
Lastly, you can sit together with your handyman to discuss on what things are good for your space. Being in the industry for years, they are well-versed with the latest trends and practices.
