Interior Design Trends of 2018

We are officially over halfway through the year, and really starting to see the predicted design trends for 2018 take off! In a recent article from Kitchen & Bath Design News magazine, experts weighed in on their forecasts for what would become popular during 2018. Aside from style, they noted that economically, 2018 was predicted to be one of the strongest and most robust remodeling years since the end of the recession. Baby Boomers are beginning to transition their homes into more retirement-friendly spaces, incorporating aging in place features such as showers with benches and comfort vanity heights. "Gen-Xers" feature second in the realm of remodeling, while Millennials are beginning to enter the renovation world tackling smaller projects that may have more of a focus on health and wellness. With such a strong remodeling year anticipated, listed below are trends we will continue seeing through the rest of 2018:


-Wall hung toilets

-Free standing tubs in a satin/matte finish

-Showers with rain heads and body sprays

-“Wet Zones” including shower, tub and bench together in one area, sometimes enclosed by glass

-Satin nickel finishes for fixtures remain most popular, with polished chrome and brushed brass coming on strong as well


-Refrigerators that are see-through with high tech cameras, or glass “InstaView” doors

-Smartphone compatible appliances, such as ovens controlled via smartphone (timers, temperatures)

- Deep sinks and pull-down faucets with high arcs

-Hands free and motion sensor faucets

-Soft-close cabinetry with deep drawers and custom storage features such rollouts, pullouts, cutlery organizers and spice racks

-Under cabinet lighting

-Quartz countertops

-White and off-white painted shaker style cabinetry with darker stained/painted island

-Wood plank style porcelain tile or luxury vinyl tile
