What are the top home design trends for 2019?

Posted on Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Whether you buying, selling or both, home design trends are always of interest to those who are going to move house this year. You might be looking to spruce up your home for viewings, or itching to get the keys to your dream home. Whatever your interest, we’ve found the most popular and interesting interior design trends for 2019.


Painted Ceilings

It seems as though paint has gone where it hasn’t gone for quite a long time – on the ceiling! Whether you fancy yourself as a Michelangelo or just feel like a funky print above your head, decorated ceilings are going to be big this year.

Take advantage of that ‘fifth wall’ and let your imagination run riot. This is particularly good for smaller, more intimate spaces – perhaps your dining room or bedroom.

Cool Colours

Green and yellow have been earmarked as some of the chicest colours of the year. Pinterest searches for the colour yellow were up 45% in 2018, with bold hues coming up trumps. Using this cheery colour as an accent, with statement pieces or painting a wall, can bring a bit of happiness and joy into your room.

A new shade of green, Nightwatch, a ‘moodier alternative to hunter and bottle green’is also gaining popularity. Like yellow, you might not want to go too mad with the colour, but using it in small and significant ways will get your house on trend for the year.


Dark Kitchens

Following on from the rise in green, darker colours such as black and navy blue for kitchen cabinets are becoming more popular. It gives a Scandi vibe and definitely something different from the traditional pine, cream or grey. If you want to make an impact this year it’s worth considering a bold choice in your kitchen.

Mix Your Metals 

Searches on Pinterest suggest a rise in interest in different types of metals. Mixing different materials and bringing in accents with tin and copper is definitely becoming more popular. For example, tin jugs alongside brass taps, gives a great vintage aesthetic and a welcome punch to kitchens or bathrooms.
