Hottest Home Design Trends of 2016

Have you started redesigning your home for the New Year yet? If you haven't, now's the right time! Check out all of 2016's hottest home trends that everyone will be gawking over.


1. Glamorous Family Room


No one’s ever said that you can’t have both glamour and functionality in your living area; all you need is the right color palette. Soft greys and metallics work wonders when trying to replicate the living room that only celebrities can afford. Add a little pop of color in a rug and your room is complete! Don’t forget about having multifunctional pieces, though. Ottomans are great for acting as both a coffee table and seat.

2. Layered Bedding


The days of plain white sheets and comforters are officially over! Now it’s in style to make your bed with more than that—a lot more. Layer up your bed with sheets, a comforter, throws, accent pillows, and more. This unique look will be sure to create an eye-catching design that everyone will be envious of.

3. Pretty Pendants

Chandeliers are so 2014. Pendants are one of the hottest home designs of 2016 right now! Simplicity is key when it comes to making this statement, so be sure to choose wisely!

4. Accentuated Accent Tables

Don’t leave your corners empty! Fill it up with an accent table. Use it as a way to highlight a potted plant or your favorite family photo.

5. Home Office

Let’s be real for a minute—how much work do you actually get done by using your laptop in bed? The need for having a traditional home office is becoming more and more apparent. 2016 will be your most productive year yet once you kick your laptop out of your bed and give it its own space.

6. Maintaining Table Settings

Believe it or not, maybe Grandma was right. Showcase your favorite dinnerware on top of your table to keep your dining area looking fabulous. Even the most beautiful of tables look dressed down without the right accessories!

7. Mixed Metals

Adding metallic accents into any room is super trendy right now. From candle holders to accent tables and chests, there are so many different ways to accent with silvers, golds, and bronzes. The best part is, it’s almost impossible to mess up!

8. Bedroom Sanctuary

A bedroom should be more than just a place to sleep—make it your sanctuary. One of the hottest home designs of 2016 is upholstered headboards. Upholstered headboards make bedrooms feel so much more luxurious that you’ll never want to leave again!

9. Using Outdoor Fabric Indoors

Outdoor fabrics, like Sunbrella, are becoming harder and harder to distinguish from traditional indoor fabrics. Using a Sunbrella fabric instead of polyester or other traditional fabrics on a living room couch actually gives it increased durability, making it perfect for a house with pets, kids, or just messy eaters.

10. Sitting Areas



You know that little extra space in your living room that you don’t really know what to do with? Formal sitting areas are finally making a comeback in 2016 and I couldn’t be any more excited about it. It’s the perfect place to sit and sip a cup of tea or relax and read a book on a Sunday afternoon. Or it can just sit there and look pretty for you—whatever you prefer.


So which trendy look of these hottest home designs for 2016 will you be trying? Let me know in the comments!
