2017's Most Popular Home Design Trends


If your business provides homeowners with architectural equipment or services, it's important that you stay up to date on the latest home design and decor trends. It seems that every year, although many aspects of home ownership remain the same, new styles, designs, and trends arise. This year is no exception, so here are a few architectural and home design trends you can expect to see in 2017.

Custom Drawers and Cabinets

Over the last few years, homeowners have continually placed an emphasis on custom aspects of their home. Rarely, however, have drawers and cabinets been the target of these customization plans, until now. People want to customize nearly every aspect of their homes both inside and outside, and sites like Pinterest have been inspiring homeowners to get creative with the often overlooked aspects of their home decor. They want every item in their home to reflect their personal style and individuality, right down to the handles on their kitchen cabinets.

Hardwood Floors

Although hardwood floors have been around for decades, a new popular trend that is gaining traction this year is a modern design on top of clean hardwood floors. Over half -- 54% -- of new homebuyers are actually willing to spend more on a home with hardwood floors. Minimalist design trends ruled in 2016 and that trend's continuing into 2017, but homeowners are incorporating both modern minimalist style and traditional hardwoods to improve the look of their home's interior.

Tropical Prints

Not every homeowner enjoys the simplistic look. Despite the popularity of the minimalist movement in modern home design, that's where tropical wallpaper, fabrics, and other bold prints come in. According to Vogue, this eccentric style of home design has been gaining popularity as well during these first few months of 2017.

"Always buy a plain sofa and change it up with new pillows," said Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, interior designer. "It's just like buying a great piece of classic clothing. You can certainly refresh it with a new bag and shoes."

Some of these home design trends are subtle and some are quite loud, but people are going to like what they like, and it's up to the industry leaders to provide the necessary design assistance they need. Don't miss out on these popular trends as you help your business grow.
