Add Character to Your Home With These Popular Design Trends

If you've been living in your house for several years, you've probably, at least once, looked around and considered making a few changes to your home. A lot of homeowners like to make a few improvements here and there, but when it comes time for a big change, you should look at what residential design trends are popular at the time. Currently, there are some very unique ways to add a creative touch to your home, making it a space with character. Below are some fun changes you can make to add some personality to your home while sprucing it up a bit.

Non-Matching Cabinets

There was a time when everything had to match, and if it didn't match, it was all wrong. That day is long gone. When it comes to modern kitchens homeowners are going with bold style changes that make their space stand out from the traditional. Non-matching cabinets are one of the most popular, and unique, changes being made to kitchens across the country. So, if your cabinets are looking a bit worn or dull, consider adding some character by trying non-matching cabinets. If you want to follow this trend, it's very easy. Simply use one color for the upper cabinets and another for those below.

Wall Colors

If you're looking for a change that doesn't require a large amount of money and a lot of time, consider changing your wall colors. Painting even one wall, making it an accent wall, can make a huge change to your home. Unique and non-traditional are quite popular choices for paint colors, just like cabinet styles. Homeowners are saying goodbye to boring white and tan walls and opting for brighter greens and blues instead. These colors both draw attention and liven up a room in a very welcoming way. So, if you want to make an easy change, consider adding a blue or green accent wall to your living room, or repainting it completely.

Black Stainless Steel

Shiny silver appliances were extremely popular for a long time. But, just as pastel appliances have faded from popularity, so are the shiny silver appliances everyone once loved. Taking their place is something similar, but still quite different. Black stainless steel adds more of a "wow factor" than silver, while at the same time giving your kitchen an elegant, classy, and modern look. So, if it's time to replace your fridge or dishwasher, consider this new color trend to spruce up your kitchen.

You'd be surprised how just a few changes inside of your home can make a world of difference. So, figure out the rooms or appliances you most want to update, and then consider one of these fun and unique trends to add some unique character to your home.
