One of the simplest ways to add fresh new style to your home is to embrace a few of the latest decorating ideas for 2019. Sometimes that can mean removing decorating ideas that are ‘out’ or adding a few trends that are coming ‘in’ to their own. Here are some inspirational trends that plan to make it big in 2019.
Let’s see which ones will survive the year!
People are making use of any natural light in their homes and light wood floors make rooms feel more open, fresh and spacious.
Look for shades of beach-colored white and light oak and birch, which reflect more light. Their neutral tones means they can easily go from casual to luxurious.
A trend coming back with a twist, is terrazzo. Used on floors, walls, bathtubs and in kitchens, terrazzo is now used on coffee tables and side tables and the terrazzo tile motif is turning up on wallpaper and even carpets. There are some bright and colorful color combinations on offer along with more neutral gray and white color schemes.
Not sure about terrazzo? For those who love a DIY challenge, painting a terrazzo motif on a pine coffee table is not entirely out of the question.

Secondly, kitchens will look to bolder color choices in both appliances and cabinetry, graphic tiles or terrazzo for an impact. Thirdly, the traditional kitchen design will dominate with closed cabinetry, fine mill work and period hardware.
Finally, raw materials such as wood, stone, shiplap, jute, rice paper and clay will flourish. They are sustainable and grounding elements.
