A new year is upon us and perhaps this is the year you plan on doing some work on your home. If you are looking into a complete overhaul or perhaps something a bit smaller in scale, staying on top of trends can have a great return on investment if you are looking to sell in the near future. And no matter your budget, there is more than one on-trend way to spice up your home to this year. According to Pinterest and HGTV, here is a condensed list of the 10 of the hottest home trends for 2016:

  1. Geometric Tiles – Whether an accent in your kitchen’s backlash or more a more impactful flooring, geometrically shaped tiles in a variety of colors are a hot new trend that really packs a punch.

  2. Grey – Shades of grey are the new neutral. From light to dark, grey walls provide the perfect canvas for brightly colored art and furniture.

  3. Graphic Throw pillows – A great and inexpensive way to quickly upgrade your existing furniture, eclectic throw pillows in bold colors and designs make a statement with little to no effort.

  4. Woven Wall Decor – Hanging cloth on the wall has come a long way since your dorm room days. Chic tapestries offer an easy alternative to framed artwork.

  5. Bold wallpaper – After taking a breather for a few years, wallpaper is back with gusto. Gone are the days of boring floral and tacky prints, the trendiest wallpapers come in bright colors and textures with unique designs.

  6. White Walls with Bold Accents – Take the focus off the walls and put it on your furniture. Lamps, seating, and rugs take center stage while white walls open up your space.

  7. Colored Kitchen Cabinets – Think outside the box with colored kitchen cabinets. Dark navy, red, or forest green cabinetry offers a new and exciting option for those looking to upgrade.

  8. Artistic Fixtures – From lighting to hardware, upgraded fixtures can be works of art in and of themselves.

  9. Indoor/Outdoor Living – Incorporating the outdoors with walls or windows that open up to the outside not only helps us feel closer to nature, but it can also double our living space as the temperatures rise.

  10. Multipurpose Family Spaces – Small office-like nooks in communal areas of the house such as the kitchen or living room allow for both children and adults to take care of work without feeling disconnected from the rest of the family.

Being on-trend this year doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Little things that make a big impact are key if you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck. And don’t forget, these trends are simply that: trends. So it’s important to renovate and decorate your home how you see fit.
