The backsplash as a focal point

2018 Exterior Design Trends from the Experts

Every year brings new trends and must-have styles that we can’t wait to update our homes with. As you plan renovations for the new year, keep the following design trends in mind!

Use of Multiple Exterior Textures

Consumers are loving the look of multiple textures on the home exterior, which will make this an ongoing design trend in 2018. Multiple exterior surfaces give a home a boost of dimension, visual interest and personality. They can be used to create a focal point or emphasize one part of the home’s elevation. If you are adding texture to an existing home, begin by evaluating its exterior color scheme and then choose siding materials (stone, brick, stucco) that have the same undertones of color. Lap siding, vertical siding and cedar shakes also add texture and can be combined in stunning ways.

Low-Maintenance is King

Low-maintenance exteriors have been a selling point for years.

16 Top Interior Design Trends to Know in 2018 (And What’s on Its Way out)

“Beige interiors are banished, making way for color and pattern, and the forgotten ceiling is now a decorating playground ready to be wallpapered, lacquered, gilded, or plastered with abandon.”
—Martyn Lawrence Bullard

“I predict that classic, traditional design elements will be back in a big way in 2018! They’ve certainly never gone away entirely, but over the past few years, everyone has gone mad for modern. Given the uncertainty of our current political and social climate, it makes sense that people would gravitate to classic, sure-fire favorites to make their homes a true respite from the rest of the world. Get ready for antiques, traditional brown furniture, and printed fabrics such as floral chintzes to make their mark in the new year.”
—Paloma Contreras

“So many cotton velvets are now available, with greater durability and in more colors than ever before. This dates back to the yellow velvet sofa seen

The Top 10 Tired Interior Design Trends to Ditch in 2018

Figuring out what makes for good design is an admittedly subjective exercise: Ask a dozen experts their thoughts on, say, why faux Mid-Century Modern is still popular in American interior design long after “Mad Men” has left us, and you’ll likely get a dozen different opinions.

Nevertheless, some home design trends manage to rise to mass acceptance. Thanks to unstoppable forces like HGTV and Pinterest—which might be single-handedly responsible for the misguided installation of thousands of sliding barn doors over the past few years—these trends tend to take on a life of their own.

And sometimes they just won’t die, even when they absolutely should.

Which are the worst offenders that need to go in 2018? We’ve chatted with experts from coast to coast to get their consensus on the top interior design trends we won’t miss in the new year.

But guess what? Style isn’t static, and your home decor shouldn’t be, either. Even the most beloved design elements can start to feel unbearably stale after a while.

“Some design trends come and go with dizzying speed,” says New York City designer Ellen O’Neill. “Others seem to just hang around long past their sell-by date.”

We won’t tell you to ditch the stuff that speaks to your soul, changing trends be damned. But if you’re itching for a design upgrade and aren’t sure where to start, ask yourself if your home is sporting any of these looks that have worn out their welcome.

These are the design hangers-on the
