Planning on revamping your home in the New Year? Now is the perfect time to start planning. Houzz – the world-renowned home renovation and design platform – has recently released their picks for trends in 2018.
Information gathered from homeowners and industry professionals allowed Houzz Editor Mitchell Parker to strategically predict what to expect in 2018. The biggest takeaway? Color – color everywhere! We hand-picked six of our favorites that will absolutely make you the envy of your neighbors.

Rich, Vibrant Color Schemes


Bold, daring, dramatic – these phrases can soon describe your new kitchen or dining room. Could you imagine these rich colors throughout your home? The potential for your furniture or décor to pop will be huge with a splash of deep reds and greens.

So Long, White & Stainless Steel Sinks

The days of steel sinks are no more. Sinks made with materials like granite, stone, or concrete are expected to be seen in more homes, and if it means beautiful kitchens like this, we’re totally on board with the trend.

Vintage Lights? Yes, Please

We’ve actually seen some of these fixtures pop up already in 2017, and we can see why the trend continues. A vintage look mixed with a modern home esthetic can really elevate your home to another level of beauty.

Wallpaper-Like Finishes

Give the impression of wallpaper with your tile to add an extra bit of oomph to your home. Also, tile is so much easier to clean than actual wallpaper. Win-win.

Calming Bedrooms

Via Houzz

Last year had darker colors for the bedroom, but now we’re getting a dose of serene. The bedroom is your sanctuary, so why not make it as peaceful as possible?

Kitchen Flare

The kitchen has been known to be a favorite room for our FMHA-affiliated architects, so adding more color to this space is a trend we fully support. While the bedroom is a place to find your zen, the kitchen is a main guest attraction for vibrancy and fun. Why wouldn’t you want to have a color to complement that energy? Add a little BAM into your home with a tasteful dose of color to your cabinetry or backsplashes.

Overall, 2018 looks to be a beautiful year filled with even more beautiful homes, and we’re itching to start making them happen! Interested in seeing what our members could do for you? Check out our gallery to get inspired.
