It can be tough to stay up-to-date on the latest and greatest home decor and design trends. That’s why, we’ve compiled this list of the four top interior design trends that you’ll notice in 2018. By being aware of these trends, you can figure out which home improvement projects you’d like to tackle this upcoming year.

  1. Contemporary Floor Plans

Contemporary floor plans, which were all the rave in the 1960s, are sure to make a comeback in 2018. These floor plans feature clean lines, open spaces, and large windows that bring in plenty of natural light.

If you opt for this type of floor plan, you’ll find it easy to keep an eye on your children and entertain guests. In addition, you’ll enjoy a wonderful view of your outdoor landscape and the ability to create a connection between the inside and outside of your home.

  1. Short-Term Rental Ready Homes

Thanks to Airbnb, VRBO, and other online marketplaces, you can rent out a room in your home or your entire home for a short period of time to people from across the country and world. 2018 will be the year that people take advantage of this trend and share their luxurious environments with others.

If you’re interested in renting out a room or your entire home, you should focus on transforming your space from personal to guest friendly. You can do so by removing personal items and adding a quality mattress topper, extra blankets and pillows, blackout drapes, a fan, air freshener and anything else that will allow your guests to feel comfortable and pampered.

  1. White Flooring

Although it may be difficult to maintain, you’ll find white flooring everywhere in 2018. If you’re looking to brighten up your home, you should consider adding white tiles to your bathrooms and kitchen and white wood flooring to your family room, living room, and bedrooms. Since white flooring looks great with every color combination, you won’t have to change the colors in your home if you decide to follow this trend.

  1. Geometric Patterns

In 2018, homeowners who are hoping to give their home a modern, yet vintage vibe will go for geometric patterns. If you’d like to try this trend out, you can find some wallpaper, throw pillows, or a rug with these types of patterns. In the event you love it and are ready commit, you should invest in a geometric kitchen backsplash or tiled floor.

  1. Black and White Rooms

Vintage style rooms that were designed in solely black and white have been popular for quite some time and will likely be seen in 2018. If you’re searching for a timeless trend to follow, creating a black and white room is the way to go.

Whether you decide on a contemporary floor plan, set your home up for Airbnb, swap your current flooring for white flooring, add some geometric patterns to your space, design a room in black and white, you can give your home a fresh new look in 2018.
