Feel like your home is starting to look a bit dated? In need of a new project for your house, but don’t exactly feel like committing to months of major renovations?
Perhaps you’ve just realized that your home’s interior decor isn’t really a reflection of your personal style.
No matter the reason, you’re ready to embrace the top interior design trends for 2019.
Ready to transform your home into something right out of the pages of your favorite glossy magazines?
If so, read on to learn how to make it happen.
1. Think Pink
Whether you’re painting your kitchen cabinets, the walls of your bedroom, or even looking for a few accent pillows for your couch, pink is one of the hottest interior design trends for 2019.
To prevent your home from looking like a flock of flamingos, try lighter shades like millennial pink and bright peach.
2. Alpine Style
Another one of this year’s biggest trends in home decor?
Making your home look like a Swiss or Austrian chalet. Think the “Hygge” trend of the past few years with more of a countryside feel to it. Add antlers, accent walls of dark wood paneling, and red and white upholstery.
Enormous bay windows and high ceilings are also a must for those willing to do a more extreme renovation. Even in the summer months, you’ll feel perfectly cozy.
3. Extreme Minimalism
Blame it on Marie Kondo, but one of the newest home trends when it comes to interior design is a seriously sparse home.
Now is the time to evaluate your clutter with a ruthless eye, and eliminate everything that doesn’t “spark joy.”
You’ll find that this makes rooms appear larger and that you can focus on the features of your home’s design that make it so special, like curved walls or arched doorways.
Don’t just toss out your old junk, however. Donate it to a resale shop or call a junk hauling company that will help make sure it goes to a family in need.
After all, just because something doesn’t spark joy for you, doesn’t mean that it won’t for someone else.
4. Wallpaper Is Back
If the “extreme minimalism” trend isn’t quite your style, you’ll be thrilled to know that wallpaper is finally back.
After a few years where solid-colored walls reigned supreme, for those who aren’t afraid to get a bit wild with decor, wallpaper is all the rage.
Think bright bold florals, Chinoiserie prints, and geometric shapes. Can’t make up your mind — or like to change it often?
If so, go with removable wallpaper. It’s much simpler to put up and remove than traditional wallpaper. Plus, you can do it yourself, which means you’ll love the look of your wallpaper even more.
5. Bathroom Fireplaces
Who says that you should only be able to sit in front of a cozy fireplace in your living room?
Now, many homeowners are opting to give their bathroom a little bit more of a luxurious feel by installing fireplaces.
It’s perfect for those who love to spend hours soaking in the tub or those with a walk-in closet attached to their bathroom.
Add a glass of wine, and you’re all set for hours.

6. Patterned Backsplashes
Looking for a way to make a design statement that won’t overwhelm your entire kitchen or bathroom?
If so, then rely on patterned backsplashes to make it happen. They’re one of the hottest trends for 2019 thanks in no small part to the versatility they offer.
You can find backsplashes with florals prints, in the Mediterranean style, tiles adorned with fruit or animals, or with stripes and solid colors.
They’re easy to clean, affordable, and elevate the look of your kitchen or bathroom sink. You can even install them on your own, making them perfect for a weekend project.
7. Grown-Up Gothic
Your phase of wearing all back may be over, but it doesn’t have to be left in the past when it comes to your interior design scheme.
If pink isn’t quite your thing, then perhaps you’d enjoy embracing the grown-up Gothic look instead. Now, it’s all the rage to paint your kitchen cabinets black, or especially use black tiling to line your shower’s walls and floors.
You can also try out deep purples, slate greys, and dark reds to go with more of Gothic vibe.
8. Rough-Edged Furniture
The unfinished, rough-edged look starting to catch on at the end of 2018, and it’s certainly not going anywhere in the new year.
Especially popular are tree-trunk tabletops with a matte finish, or even rough-edged countertops.
Pair these edges with an eclectic decor style (think tons of printed fabrics) in your home for a bohemian look. Put a lantern on top of a rough-edged table to take things to the next level.
Embrace These Interior Design Trends for 2019
From painting your walls pink and black to deciding if you’re more of a minimalist or maximalist, the interior design trends for 2019 give you lots of room to play.
Just remember to focus on comfort and sustainability above all else. After all, you want people to feel like they can relax in your home — not like they’re not allowed to touch anything for fear of damaging it.
