Design Trends for 2019

Decorating a new house can be both exciting and daunting, so we’ve curated a list of the top design trends happening right now!

1. Fully tiled walls. There are some gorgeous tiles appearing on the scene, so why just relegate them to a small space above your stove. Considering tiling an entire feature wall to show off their pattern, colors and design.
2. Lots of wood. Wood floors meet wood cabinets meet wood countertops. Balance it with metal, steel or polished concrete to achieve a modern and sleek look.
3. Change up the subway tile. Instead of installing these oh-so-traditional tiles in the conventional brick formation, think chevron, herringbone and stacked patterns instead.
4. Black is back. This is a color that can intimidate, but also excite! A wall of confident black cabinets in the kitchen complemented by high-contrast white countertops can be a dynamic look.
5. Spa like bathrooms. Don’t think of your bathroom as a place you need to be…design a place you want to be! Deep soaking tubs, rainforest shower heads and plush towels will have you thinking you’ve checked into a five-star hotel every day of your life!
6. Mix your fabrics. In the same room don’t be afraid to embrace a leather couch, a tartan chair and monogrammed cushions. Mixing up patterns and fabrics gives a room a lived-in and cozy feeling.

Whatever your style and how deep you want to dive into trendy designs is entirely up to you. You can embrace a trendy decor full on or simply incorporate it subtly into your aesthetic. Whatever you do, try to reflect your personality and lifestyle. We don’t mean to brag, but our Brandywine Homes designers do wonderful work in our model homes. Come visit them for inspiration!
