2018 Luxury Home Trends
With the new year fast approaching, the home design world is fast predicting the latest trends to hit the design world. For anyone in the process of planning their new custom home build, here are our favourite trends, ones that will continue to be major impact makers and popular choices throughout the new year.
You may have heard of the design trend to ‘bring the outdoors in’, and many are attempting to do this by including large, expansive windows in to their home design. You may want to consider large openings that create a cohesive indoor/outdoor feel. It’s a great way to bring the outdoors in.
Open plan living is here to stay. It’s modern, it’s fresh and it’s great for entertaining. However, a new emerging trend is the incorporation of small, cosy, tucked away spaces. Such as an outdoor patio off the master bedroom with space for simply two chairs. Think private morning coffee, or a late-night book. Creating a cosy getaway space – outside of the large open spaces of your home – is becoming a very popular choice among luxury home builders.
Colour of the Year
Every year, new colour trends emerge. Rather than painting a wall a new colour, be innovative about the way you incorporate this latest trend. You can do so merely with accessories and home furnishings, but you can also be creative and bold and create built in features that add a splash of colour to your modern home. This can be done with tiles, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry and more. Think carefully about the pieces being built and designed for your new home build, and get a little daring. For instance, choosepale blue kitchen splashback against an all-white kitchen. A great way of combining the colour of the year and following modern trends is to use plumbing or kitchen fittings smartly. For example, you can opt for chrome, rose gold or black taps to fit in with the theme of your luxury home. It’s a great way of getting the best of both worlds. There are many ways you can go bold here, just remember to be creative and consult with your home builder about what will work and what won’t.
