Unique Home Accents for 2018

Add these unique elements to your home.

With every new year comes exciting changes. One such change is home decor. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to remodel certain parts of your home or if you’re a first-time homeowner, there are plenty of unique home accents for you to choose from. Here are 7 trends that will soon be sweeping the nation.

Richer Colors

Switch out those cooler neutral colors for warm grays, reds, yellows, greens, browns, and blacks. Unlike rich colors of years past, these won’t age quickly. If you want a diverse mix of texture and color in your home this year, adding rich colors will create a soothing home environment. It can also help decor and other furnishings pop.

Vintage Lighting

Sometimes older is better and this might just be the case with vintage lighting. Customers love the high-quality, one-of-a-kind nature of classic features and they are making a comeback. Lanterns, chandeliers, pendants, and sconces can all be outfitted in copper and brass finishes to add just the right touch.

Bucket Sinks

Farmhouse inspired bucket sinks are all the rage right now. Also known as trough sinks, this vintage design trend is growing rapidly in popularity thanks in large part to the fabulous HGTV show Fixer Upper. Simple but with plenty of space, bucket sinks will add personality and a designer’s touch to any space.

Natural Elements

If you’re looking for something fresh, adding natural elements to your home is just the ticket. Granite, concrete, copper, and stone accents all help bring out an organic and peaceful atmosphere for you, your family, and friends. Also, these don’t have to be big pieces of furniture, they can be small accent or decor accessories.


Beautiful and timeless, floral accents and patterns never get old. This year, there are new ways to look at this design trend. Use eye-catching graphic florals in high-contrast colors all throughout your house and people will love it.

Millwork Feature Wall and Detailing

Wood accents are becoming more and more popular and as such, there are a multitude of options for homeowners to choose from. One great option is millwork due to its availability and ease in designing. You can do anything with it; DIY it and then put it in your bedroom, bathroom, living room, or kitchen.

Color in Kitchens

In order to give your kitchen a warm and unique feel, add in rich colors such as gray and blue neutrals and warm wood mahogany tones in liven up their kitchens. White will alway be a great color as a base, but color will make your cooking area be the place to hang out in your home.
