Home decor has become quite a trend because it can incorporate your fashion sense and personality in a unique and stylised way. Over the years, has seen a whole range of different trends has popping up, most notably the sixties and seventies trend of bright oranges and purples and zigzag pattern designs. Let’s take a look at the year that was, and see what home decorations have trended over the past twelve months.

Yellow Is The New White

Calm pastel colours, such as lemon, eggshell blue, and mint green, were a hit, and worked well against neutral coloured walls, such as milk cloud (off white), natural white, and Taubmans Martini (stone). These plainer colours allowed the yellow to stand out in a fresh and attractive way.

Timber Features

Timber flooring was one of the biggest trends in floors over the past year. The laminate flooring is an imitation of timber that are cheaper to buy than tiles, look great, and require minimal maintenance. If you like the look of a timber floor, and want to make a statement in your kitchen or dining room, you can always create a stack panel timber feature wall made from small pieces of eco-friendly timber stick together.

Tiles And Mosaics

Digitally printing tiles to replicate the genuine look of heavy stone has become quite popular over 2013. This type of printing works well in a 600X300 mm format and can be laid from floor to ceiling to recreate a luxurious hotel-style bathroom. Tile mosaics have also risen to popularity, and look amazing in a modern and chic bathroom. Chose a style that has multiple textures in one sheet, such as stone, glass, and metallic finishes.

Large Feature Lights

The past year has seen many trends in feature lights, but not as popular as large pendant lights. These lights look fantastic suspended over kitchen benches, beds, and dining room tables, and are incredibly cost-effective. Feature lights have grown in popularity, and are now the preferred choice in lighting overhead kitchen cabinets, as they light up the entire room, even inside the cupboards. .

Space-Saving Cabinets

Suspended vanities cabinets are a great trend in bathrooms, as they not only save a lot of space, but open up the room to make it look bigger. The most popular choice is a vanity cabinet made of composite stone, as it’s more affordable and looks good, too.

Kitchens Got Retro

One of the biggest trends over the past year was coloured bench top appliances, such as orange, green, or yellow retro kettles, toasters, and mixes. Even though white is the most popular colour in a kitchen, bright colours create points of interest that add a little personality into the room.

This past year has seen lots of exiting new home decoration trends, from bright yellow walls to kitchen appliances looking like they’ve stepped out of the sixties.
