Home Design Trends for 2019

1.Pendant Lighting in Single or Multiple Displays

A pendant light is one that hangs down from your ceiling, usually suspended from a cord, chain or metal rod. They are also known as drops or suspenders. This season you will see examples of both single pendant lights and those that are hung in groups, such as the unique examples from Home Bunch above. A popular place for hanging multiple pendant lights is over your kitchen island. This trend is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also has the added advantage of a more even distribution of illumination.

2.Gold and Copper Accents Throughout Your Home

This season you will see plenty of gold and copper accents throughout the trendiest homes. Door knobs, handles, sinks, faucets, curtain rods and other accent pieces will be made from these shiny metals. Not only will you be seeing gold and copper in bathrooms and kitchens, but also living rooms and bedrooms will be shining with these types of accents. We especially love the example above from Superfront, showing how well copper goes with the bottle-green vanity colour and the smooth limestone textured walls.

3.Unique Kitchen Sinks - Unique Materials and Shapes

The farmhouse sink continues to be a popular choice for homeowners this season, but with a twist on materials and shape. These beautiful examples from Rachiele Sinks show how gorgeous a kitchen sink can be. It can actually become the focal point of your room. The first picture shows a variegated copper coloured, drop-in farmhouse sink with a built-in cutting station. The second example goes way outside the box with its unusual yet clever shape and design; perfect for a corner installation.

4.Pops of Colour for Your Living Room

If you love colour, but are worried about choosing a colour scheme that you are going to quickly get tired of, consider using this next great home design trend. Start with a very neutral colour scheme (for example, grey is particularly popular this season) and then go wild with pops of colour in pieces that you can easily change, as seen in the above example from Home of Decor Idea. You can add colour with pillows, stools, drapes, and lamps. These are all accents that are relatively easy to replace or switch up over time without breaking your budget.

5.Matte Finishes for Awesome Floors and Cabinetry

Matte finishes are very popular this season both in flooring and in cabinetry. A matte finish will give your wood a more natural look. Even if you choose an engineered hardwood over traditional hardwood, a matte finish will also look amazing. If you're choosing kitchen cabinets, why not go for a more vintage style and choose wood grain cabinets as opposed to the over-done, all white look. Or, go with a combination of white and wood as in the design above by Style Blueprint

6.Cement Elements that Will Amaze You

The term "cement" doesn't immediately bring to your mind "trendy design element," but homeowners are discovering the beauty of cement this season in many surprising ways, including flooring, countertops, accent tables and planters. You'll also see gorgeous wall coverings made of cement like this one above from Home Dzine. This awesome design was made using cement fibre board with lovely plaster and paint finish techniques; the effect is one-of-a-kind.

7.Adding a Sunroom for More Space and Light

Whether you use your sunroom for entertaining, relaxing, family fun or even as a green space, you will certainly enjoy their versatility and beauty. Check out this lovely design from Home TV Channel.
