In 2017, there were plenty of design inspirations. With Pinterest on the rise, styles merge and a number of movements swept the country. If you are thinking about making some changes to your home this year, let’s take a look at the past trends and how they might evolve into 2018 in Carlsbad, CA.
Past Trends That Are Timeless:
Mixed Window Finishes
Traditional design rules might state that you need to have things match on your windows, but mixed window finishes is a trend that is here to stay. The popular look is bold and is easy to create by having a window sash contrast in color from the frame. Windows look like they are framing your view when the finishes contrast just right.
Big Doors & Windows
Homeowners want to open their views and add drama to their rooms by placing larger windows and doors into the space. If you have a good view of Carlsbad, CA, putting in larger windows or doors is something you can’t go wrong with style-wise.
Transitions to Outdoor Living Space
Living in Carlsbad, CA means you have nice weather most of the year. You can take advantage of your outdoor living space by enjoying an easy transition between inside and outside. That might mean certain types of doors, picture windows to ease the transition, or any number of other things.
Trends to Watch for 2018:
Warm, Natural Finishes
There are some years that call for bold colors and bright finishes on windows, walls, and other areas. But this year, it’s all about creating a natural home by mixing layers of warm, natural finishes. The warm elements inspire a connection to the natural world right inside the home.
Vanishing Sight Lines
This year, homeowners will likely want narrower frames on their windows and larger glass. Traditional windows can look even more simple and sleek in this manner. People want to minimize and simplify their lives, both with clutter-free living and in style manners. Windows with vanishing sight lines create a sense of calm and openness in a home.
Windows are normally rectangles, but they come in many different shapes and sizes. This year, you might see a trend leaning toward windows with rounded tops. They fit in well for traditional and modern homes and have an elegant, smooth style.
The Art of Lighting
Lighting can make or break the look and feel of a home, and homeowners will consider its contribution this year more than ever before. It’s important to unplug as many lights as possible and get the most natural light as you can in all the right places.
