The Top Interior Design Trends for 2017

March 22, 2017Kate Anderson

We’re well into the new year and a variety of interior design trends have hit the scene. If you’re looking for ways to refresh your home décor and remain abreast of all the latest interior design features, consider incorporating the following fantastic upgrades into your abode. From hardware upgrades to backsplash ideas, you’ll find tips that work for all budgets and home design preferences.

Bronze Features

Industrial, stainless steel looks are out, and warm bronze finishes are in. Bronze fixtures can warm up any space and add that bit of elegance to every room. One of the easiest ways to incorporate this trend into your home décor is by switching out your hardware. From your faucet in the kitchen to handle pulls on the bathroom cabinets, this is a budget-friendly upgrade you can complete in just a few hours.


Mixing Texture

Modern homeowners are looking for ways to make their homes more sumptuous, and experimenting with texture can help you achieve this goal. Don’t think that texture is subjugated to textiles. You’ll find texture options in virtually any type of interior design object. From brushed metallic finishes on lighting fixtures to textured wallpaper that will make you want to run your hands down the walls, your imagination is the only limitation.

Subway Tile

Watch a single episode of any of HGTV’s popular décor shows and you’ll likely find subway tile featured in a huge way. It seems to be on its way to becoming a kitchen staple, especially when it comes to backsplash design. The clean, white appearance of this interior design trend can bring added brightness to the heart of your home, and serves as a versatile accent that can meld well with any kitchen scheme. If you’re looking for something a little more eye-popping, there are plenty of materials and colors to choose from so you can truly make it all your own.

Jewel Tones

Say farewell to boring beige and usher in one of this year’s most exciting color trends: jewel tones. Give new life to the walls in your home with your favorite jewel tones and make an impression on every guest. From royal purple to emerald green, adding color to your living space has never been so easy and stylish. These hues can bring a whole new element of richness to your home décor, and these saturated colors are easy to incorporate in a variety of ways, from curtains to artwork. Head to your local Sherwin Williams and play with several different hues to decide which works best for your home.

Marvel at Marble

If you haven’t already noticed, marble is back in, and it’s coming in with vengeance to the world of interior design. White marble is becoming particularly popular, and can be found in kitchen countertops, tile options, and even in fabric materials used for textile additions. While you’ll find it as expected in tabletops and flooring, white and grey marble is also making its presence known in decorative objects. From serving trays to vases and everything in between, you’ll find a variety of ways to incorporate this trend into every room in your home.

Going Green

We’re not talking mint walls and sage cabinets. “Greenery” might be Pantone’s color of the year, but going green in your home’s interior design means making a concerted effort to transform your living space into a sustainable paradise. Incorporating green features into your redecorating schemes can help you save in utility costs down the road and complete your vision. Looking to brighten up your home and save energy? Consider replacing your windows with modern, energy efficient glass planes. These types of upgrades present a bit more cost upfront, but the savings down the line more than make up for the investment. If you can’t afford the total cost immediately, PACE initiatives like the HERO Program from Renovate America are designed to help. PACE programs are becoming more popular across the country. PACE was created to provide homeowners with financing for energy efficient home improvements, and can make all the difference in your home this year.
