Whether you are considering remodeling your existing home or redesigning certain areas of it or you are building and planning out a new home, you probably find yourself looking for inspiration on a regular basis.
Just like fashion trends, home design trends are always changing and there are many different tastes and styles out there. Some people prefer more neutral colors and understated furniture while others like their home to be a warm and inviting space with loud pops of color and unique art on the walls.
Whatever your taste, you should be able to design your home in a way that works for you, and checking out current trends may be able to give you some fresh ideas. Here are 3 current home design trends to help inspire you.
Outdoor Kitchens And Bathrooms
You may be surprised to know that both outdoor kitchens and outdoor showers/baths are trending right now. Of course, this bold design choice isn’t for everyone and probably won’t work as well for people who live in places that experience a lot of inclement weather. It is also good to note that while outdoor kitchens can be entirely functional, it’s smart to also have an indoor kitchen in your home. But building your own outdoor kitchen can be a lot of fun, especially once you see the end result. For pure bliss, once you’re done cooking dinner you can take a nice bath in your outdoor tub!
DIY-ing has become more and more popular over the years with homeowners and renters alike. This may be due in large part to the fact that home design can get expensive and tackling projects on your own can help you save a lot of money. But doing home design projects yourself instead of hiring someone else to do them can be a lot of fun and you may even discover a new talent or passion you didn’t know you had. So before hiring someone to implement your design ideas, try seeing if it’s something you may be able to do on your own.
Water features such as ponds, waterfalls, and even small creeks and rivers have been popping up in home design magazines a lot lately. Some homes even have glass floors with water features underneath so that you can feel like you are walking on water and gaze at the fish without ever even having to step foot outdoors. The great thing about water features is that you can put them indoors or outdoors and you can choose just about whatever size you’d like from small to massive. You may even be able to use the previous tip by creating a water feature yourself using things from your local garden store.
Overall, you should design your home however you want to regardless of what current trends are, but if paying attention to trends helps to inspire you, give it a shot! Hopefully after reading these tips you will be able to picture just what you want your new home to look like.
