The information in this week’s episode comes from an article that was recently posted on Houzz called 32 Home Design Trends That Will Rule in 2019. Houzz chose those 32 design trends after analyzing data from photos and articles that have been saved on the site, plus interviewing professional designers. The trends are those they think you can expect to see a lot in 2019. Many of them are features we’ve seen over the last several years but are still popular in new homes.
Now, To clarify, design features that are on trend can be very different than features that are trendy. A trend is defined as a general direction in which something is developing or changing. A design trend is often classic— something that will look good many years or even decades from now, like white or light colored walls. Something that’s trendy, has faddish appeal. It may look very interesting and current in the next year or two, but it will probably look dated in a decade— think of sponge-painted faux finishes on walls from the early 2000s.
