If you’ve been thinking about doing some redecorations or remodeling in your home, then have we got some good news for you! In 2017, there are some awesome home décor trends that you’ve got to think about trying out if you want an awesome home that’s going to be a joy to live in and impressive to those of your friends who come to visit. Keep reading down below to learn more about these trends and how to make them your own this year.

  1. Head Over to The Dark Side for A Change

You might be thinking that it’s best to keep your style on the lighter side to keep up the positivity and brightness in your home. However, in 2017, while you can keep around those pops of bright colors and white, think about adding a bit of moodiness and mystery to your home décor. For example, if you’re redoing your kitchen, a great way to make this happen is by adding in dark cabinets. You may be thinking that this will make your house a bit too moody and dark, but on the contrary. This darker color palette is going to bring some nice contrast to your home and add some depth that you might have been missing with all of those bright colors.

But don’t worry! You can easily keep those bright colors around. For example, you can have a white marble countertop with those dark cabinets. Or some bright light fixtures hanging overhead.

  1. Greenery Is in This Year

If you’re thinking about redoing the color of the walls in your living room or adding some new furniture pieces around the house, you should think about a dark green or emerald. Now, this may not be the first choice in your head, but trust us when we say that this color is seriously on trend this year. That’s because a dark green has been shown to reenergize you as soon as you look at it and can add some nice freshness to your house.

This is especially true if you have a lighter toned house. A dark green can add some depth and contrast that you weren’t achieving before (as mentioned in the last point). Check to see if you can find some furniture to rent or buy that comes in this dark emerald green color.

  1. Corkboards? No, Go for Cork Walls Instead

Chances are high that you’ve seen the trend of using cork as a building material in the last few years. Well, in 2017 this trend is going one step further by transforming entire walls into a cork material. You may not understand this trend at first, but it’s actually pretty great! Imagine an entire wall of cork that looks great, but is also super practical in hanging up pictures and potted plants. In addition to that, cork is a great barrier to sound and is going to ensure that your bedroom or living room is pretty sound proof.

  1. Try to Design an Indoor Tree House

Another big trend in 2017 is creating a nook in your house that’s just yours to go and relax in. Do you remember back in the day when you had that treehouse that you would escape to? That’s the logic behind this trend. Whether it’s a nook in the attic or just part of your living room, you can easily create a tranquil space that anyone in your family can go to when they need some relaxation. Think about adding plenty of cozy pillows, scented candles, and soft bedding when creating this space.

  1. Mix and Match Some of Those Textures

Lastly, you should not be afraid of mixing and matching various textures in 2017. You may find it difficult to choose between one texture and another, but this year, you don’t have to do that! 2017 is all about mixing and matching those things and trying to create something awesome. You can easily do this in the kitchen with hardwood, marble on the countertop, and maybe some cork on the walls. This adds some serious contrast around the room and will ensure that no one gets bored when looking around.

And there you have it! Which one of these home décor trends are you going to try out this year when you’re remaking your home? No matter which one you choose, they are going to seriously impress anyone who comes over to visit.
