5 Custom Home Trends for 2018

As Home Builders in WA, we understand trends come and go but it’s always good to know what’s ‘in’ this season. If you’re custom building a house, it’s good to know the types of features that are easily available to you. Let’s go through some luxury home trends.

Here’s Five of The Top Design Principles That Are Trending:

1. Earthy colours

There are lots of warm and earthy colours being introduced into new custom home designs. While the white, minimalist look is still popular, colours like rust and tan are being used to add life to bedroom walls, as well as on furniture and décor. These tones aren’t harsh and they add a certain style to a room. In bathrooms, colours like soft plum, dusty blue, dark green, beige, and charcoal are popular.

2. Geometric patterns

To achieve interesting accents, geometric patterns are coming into today’s house designs. This could be in the form of a feature wallpaper or tiles – making up a small part of a big room. Even just a dozen geometric tiles grouped together with plain, white tiles surrounding it can bring a new dimension to a space.

3. Brass & metallic

Flick through home décor magazines and chances are, you’ll see metallic or brass in the design. Think metallic coffee tables, dining room suites, wall art, and even metallic cushion fabric. There’s lots you can do with it. Brass is found in new kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms.

4. Plants

While adding more greenery isn’t necessarily a trend that’s unique to 2018, it’s more popular than ever. Plants have been proven to increase positivity and help keep air fresh, so the greener the better. Add a vase or two in your kitchen, bathrooms and living room. Hanging plants add a stylish touch, especially to kitchens and entertaining areas.

5. Wood

While the rise in technology has opened up a world of possibilities when it comes to house design, it also has us craving for what once was. There’s a resurgence of wood, in its most natural form. We’re starting to see wood in unexpected places such as accent walls and ceilings. And it’s in the finer details, too. Instead of plastic fruit bowls, you’ll see hand-carved wood bowls.
