1. STONE EFFECT DECO
“Pieces such as sculptural tables, dramatic countertops, and eye-catching backsplashes made from unconventional stones are making appearances in your favorite interior design magazine,” they said.
All you’ll need to recreate the look on a budget are a few rolls of contact paper with your favorite stone or marble design and stick it wherever you want.
2. ORGANIC CURVES
Experts noted that while in “past years geometric patterns were extremely in,” this year’s trend “shifted in the opposite direction” with curves coming back in people’s houses.
If you’re a fan of the trend, they suggested “painting an arch on a wall for a perfect accent detail,” or if you’re feeling crafty, “building it around an existing doorway.”
3. GRANNY CHIC AND MAXIMALISM
If you’re a fan of gaudy prints and bright colors, then this is your year to shine.
To recreate the style for cheap, they suggested that you add a fresh set of bright tiles to their backsplash or cover your living room and hallway walls with quirky wallpaper.
4. INFLUENCE OF THE NATURAL WORLD
Transforming your house into an indoor garden might make your house look expensive, but “fake plants that look authentic can be quite pricey.”
To make the job a bit easier and to “spread the costs,” experts suggest doing both and hiding cheaper faux plants among the real ones, which will elevate the whole setting.
5. PERFECT LIGHTING
According to Porcelain Superstore, “big, noisy chandeliers” are currently the design trend, but there are cheaper solutions.
First, you might want to hit your local thrift shop in the hope of finding a great piece.
If you’re creative, there are several tutorials online that could help you create your own for a fraction of the price.
