Whether you were ready for it or not, 2018 is here and there are some bold new things you can do for your home to make it look fresh, new, and stylish this year. Whether you keep up with the trends in Woodland Hills, CA or not, you can’t go wrong with these signature ideas to refresh your home this year.
Idea 1: Colorful Trim
White on white has been very popular over the years and it’s still a good way to go. But if you’re tired of having all one color in your home, take the easy route and paint the trim in your house a different color. It takes less time and less paint than covering the walls. You can make a real statement with a bold color.
Idea 2: Purple Shades
Lavender and lilac colors are huge on the fashion runway, but they are also making a splash in homes in California. Watch for purple shades in accent stones, throw rugs, pillows, curtains, and artwork. Start with just a little bit and if you like it, go for something larger.
Idea 3: Custom Backsplashes
One way to refresh your kitchen without tearing out counters or flooring is to get a custom cut mosaic tile back splash. The colors and textures that are available are varied and you can get the backsplash of your dreams that can change the whole look of your kitchen without having to renovate the whole room.
Idea 4: Mix Metals
Many homeowners are enjoying a variety of metals, all in one location. You might use a black wire basket for magazines right next to a brass lamp, for example. The mixture allows for a contrast that is pleasing to the eye.
Idea 5: Natural Elements
Choosing natural materials that stand the test of time can make a space both beautiful and durable. Get stone, wood, or other earthy objects that are decorative.
Idea 6: Use Storage as a Statement
There’s a growing desire for high-end organization within a home. Storage pieces are becoming statements that can end up being a large part of the room. Instead of hanging standard shelves, think about how the shelves can become a decoration themselves.
Idea 7: Replacement Windows
