Find out about the future home trends in furnishing for 2018
The new year 2018 is getting closer and it will definitely bring a lot of new things. What can we expect in the fashion world of furnishings? In a summary we present you the main idea of the current design.
Minimalism is and will remain in trend
Minimalism has established itself in many areas of life within 3 decades, of course also when furnishing your own four walls. It forms the basis of all current living trends. Ordinary everyday life is exhausting enough and even stressful from time to time. As soon as you get home, everyone wants to relax, switch off from stress in peace and quiet and cozy harmony. Modern man now prefers that nothing additional claims his attention. Minimalism helps here. This style is dominated by simple shapes and straight lines. The well-known minimalist motto “less is more” avoids everything superfluous and additional. The main idea is to free the room as much as possible and not make any effort there.

We want to clarify it again: what will be fashionable next year? The colors can be pastel and retro, classic gray, bright green or Dark blue for the new design of your home choose. Trendy materials are still wood and rattan, leather or fur for a natural, rustic country look, stone, ceramic, concrete, granite and Metal for the northern style. You use copper as the metal – this is the new gold. Did you know that or not, walnut, oak and beech are used as wood material. When it comes to modern room lighting, LED lamps are still a huge hit. As a supplement or for a change you can also furnish with interesting lighting fixtures. The underfloor heating is also in. We have liked “living with a system” since last year. Functional shelves are used here, so that everything is well organized and still has more free space. Add a few plants to all of this and you will get the very latest in interior design ideas. We hope you enjoy these trends!
Pastel and retro colors
A pleasant, classic look of pastel and retro colors can be present in every new and modern apartment. A combination between lighter and darker, muted colors is not only possible, but an unusual idea. Sometimes the following happens: what seems impossible as a combination is actually a very successful mix of colors.

The eternal gray
Gray color is the classic in the interior, because gray has a calming effect. This color combines with almost everything. Many leading furniture brands offer furniture in gray. Below you can see some interior design ideas in this color and their nuances.

Olive green – it still looks natural
Green is undoubtedly modern and in a certain shade this color looks very natural. So that everything is in the country house style, we prefer everything that comes from the country as decoration and material. Enjoy the cosiness!

Dark blue … and then comes the maritime style
Why not use the wonderful maritime style at home too? It doesn’t go out of style, just as swimming in the sea is never boring. This style is full of grandeur and looks very aristocratic. Arrange with anything that comes from the sea or its imitation and you will get great results.

2. Intelligent shelves – style “living with a system”
If you have a lot of things in your apartment and you don’t know where to put them, shelves come to the rescue. They only make the minimalist style possible. Choose shelves that can accommodate a lot of items and that only take up a little space in the room. This frees up living space to play with small children or just to relax.

Northern influence – the hygge style
The Scandinavian style “Hygge” comes closest to minimalism. It’s an interesting combination between simplicity and comfort. This design is not as “empty” as the minimalism and not as overloaded as the country style. It can radiate both cold and warmth. That is why it is so necessary in both summer and winter. In a hygge-style room, a modern fireplace, candles and other lighting fixtures are essential.
And so you now know more about the living trends for the coming year. No matter what kind of trend you choose, the main goal is that you feel very comfortable and cozy in your home.
