Of course, that means keeping up with 2019 has to offer in the way of home trends. So, keep reading for all the latest, from high gloss furniture to environmentally friendly trends, and everything in between.

High Gloss Furniture

The great thing about high gloss furniture is that it creates a nice contrast in your home and helps you get the popular monochromatic effect that is dominating home trends in 2019. At the same time, the glossy nature of the furniture helps to reflect light, creating a brightened space in any room. Try this trend in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.

Jewel Tones

Jewel tones lend an air of elegance and opulence to your space and they are trending in a big way this year. You don’t want to go over the top so stick with classic jewel tones in small doses, such as a couch or pair of drapes on the windows. Then accent them with more toned-down hues to create a regal finish in your sitting room or bedroom.

Sustainability

Less is more this year and you can join the trend by going with sustainable materials and design ideas. Whether that’s paring down what you have or choosing natural materials like bamboo that are renewable, this is a big-time trend and will likely continue to be. This is a great trend to get in on if you like neutral colours and earth tones in your home it’s ideal for just about any room in the house, from the kitchen to the dining room to the bathroom.

Memphis Design

Not since the 1980s has there been such an explosion of primary colours and graphic shapes, often referred to as Memphis design. So bright reds, blues and yellows are having a big moment as are graphic shapes like squares. These are great additions to living rooms and bedrooms but can also be used in bathrooms.

Large Scale Art

Minimalism may never go completely out of style, but this year sees the explosion of maximalist art. That might mean hanging one large, colourful and dramatic piece covering an entire wall or it could mean covering a whole wall with a bunch of artworks to create a gallery wall effect. Either way, this look is ideal for large spaces like your living room.

Floral Wallpaper

Wallpaper waxes and wanes in popularity, but it’s trending big time in 2019. It’s great for spaces both small and large and you’ll see it in bathrooms, bedrooms and offices. Florals are going several ways – either chintz or abstract so you have a lot of options for using this trend in your home.


There are quite a few other 2019 trends you might love, including bold backsplashes, four poster beds, acrylic furniture and mixed metals. Pick and choose the ones you like best to create a trendy home that you love day after day.
