Houzz—a website which offers products, ideas, and the names of contractors for home remodeling and decoration projects—has just named the 10 home design trends it expects to see most frequently in 2018. The trends were chosen based on input from Houzz users and home professionals.
These are the trends that made the list.
More color in kitchens

Increasing the amount of color in your kitchen can give it a warmer, more personal touch while also making cooking-related stains and damage less apparent.
Rich colors throughout the home

Paying attention to color throughout the home can make your furniture and decorative items pop.
No more white or stainless steel sinks

Houzz expects sinks made with materials like stone, copper, concrete, and granite to become popular in 2018.
Florals make a comeback

Floral prints have always been popular, but expect to see more floral designs that use contrasting colors.
Kimberley Bryan / Houzz
Vintage lighting fixtures, like aged copper pendant lights, are making a comeback.
Trough or bucket sinks
Designstorms / Houzz
Trough sinks tend to be wider and deeper than the sinks that are most common today, which makes them a good choice for bathrooms shared between children or laundry rooms.

While concrete is a common building material, it may become more prominent in decorative contexts.
Millwork feature walls and detailing
Michaela Dodd / Houzz
Wooden walls with designs etched into them have been popular in bathrooms and kitchens, but expect to see them in bedrooms more frequently.

Intricate tile designs can add a compelling compositional element to a wall while being more damage-resistant than wallpaper.
Casual and calm modern bedrooms

Minimalist designs and soothing colors will make bedrooms more relaxing and restful spaces.
