2018 Top Design Trends

January 19, 2018

As we usher in 2018, we wanted to give our design forecast for the coming year. Our team at Trinity Surfaces sat down to discuss ideas about 2018 design trends as well as what’s in, and what’s on its way out.

The 2018 Design Trends

1. Polar opposites will attract

On the retro side of things, keep an eye on small, decorative formats. These little beauties are about eight inches or less. Don’t let their size fool you. They’ll pack a punch this year for detail-loving designers. Small designs like this will stay atop the list of must-haves.

Our pick: Equipe

But, on the flip side, the future is big! Literally. Slab size formats that are about 48 inches or more will also be a huge draw for designers. These types of designs will be used for more modern spaces. Our 2018 design trends report says “go big or go home!”

Our pick: Panaria

2. Terazzo will get its groove back

In addition to porcelain’s popularity, terrazzo will be a go-to for a lot of designers. One of the main draws is its longevity. Beyond that, it’s a beautiful option for luxury designers to consider if they’re looking at ways to build a sustainable space.

Our pick: Caesar Autore

3. Dimensional woods will draw attention

Arguably the least surprising in our forecast for 2018 is the attention that dimensional wood designs will get. These wood flooring, shapes, and finishes have always been a favorite, but this year they’ll soar.

4. Value in exterior pavers will go up

As the weather warms up, designers will find a continually rising value in exterior pavers. With made-in-the-USA brands like Delconca and Landmark, the prices are being driven down which makes them even more appealing.

Our pick: Delconca

5. “Greige” will be the new black

Neutral color lovers are moving away from cooler greys and are moving on towards “greiges” and beiges. Grey has had a seriously good run, but warmer tones are heating up and designers want in.

Our pick: Panaria
