Hilltop Market Trends: Interior Design Trends For 2017

Whether you are buying or selling a home this year, it’s important to learn about the latest interior design trends. Why? Sellers should know what buyers are looking for so they know how to stage their homes. On the other hand, buyers should also know about design trends so they know how to decorate their new home once they move in. So, what are the Hilltop market trends when it comes to interior design? Here are some of the most popular trends you may see in today’s homes:

Black Appliances
Stainless steel has been the go-to choice for kitchen appliances for decades, but its reign may be coming to an end. This year, interior design experts are predicting that homeowners will lean more towards black stainless steel instead of the traditional silver. Black is sleeker, more sophisticated, and modern, which is why it has increased in popularity over the last several months.

Blue Paint
You should expect to see every shade of blue splashed across the walls in homes across the Hilltop area this year. Some design experts have predicted that navy blue will be the new black for the year 2017, while others believe softer baby blues will be more popular than darker shades. Why is this color making a comeback? It could be because of its soothing properties. Blue tends to evoke a sense of calm in people, so it’s a great choice for the bedroom or living room. Color psychology: does it affect how you feel?

Gold and silver have always been the most popular choices for cabinet pulls, faucets, and other decorative elements in the home. But, they may need to make room for brass. Many industry insiders believe brass will make a splash in the interior design world this year. Brass can come off a bit harder than silver and gold, but it also has an undeniable elegance that will work well in most homes.

Geometric Prints
Wallpaper has become more and more popular over the last few years, and it’s not going anywhere yet. This year, homeowners will fall in love with geometric printed wallpaper that will be sure to make any room come alive. If you don’t want to commit to wallpaper just yet, incorporate geometric prints in other ways. For example, buy a geometric print blanket and display is neatly on your sofa. This is a great way to incorporate the trend in an easy and inexpensive way.

Painted Front Doors
Homeowners will start to make a strong first impression in 2017 with a bright and bold painted front door. If you want to try this trend, choose either a daring red or blue, whichever color complements the rest of your home the best. Be sure to tape the area around your door carefully so the paint job doesn’t look sloppy.
