Just that really. I know grey has had its moment to shine but just curious to know what people think will be the Next Big Thing or if you could change something about the decoration in your house, what would you go for? Looking for inspiration!

Everyone is getting navy kitchens!

Geometric walls?

halcyondays Mon 07-Sep-20 12:31:37

Don’t know. Personally I would avoid anything overly trendy that will soon date and go for something that I won’t get tired of looking at. It costs too much to keep changing things and isn’t good for the environment.

Dark forest green

Terrazzo table tops and accessories like plant pots, vases etc...
its annoying because I love it but I know that in two years, it'll be everywhere and I will fall out of love with it.

Brass/gold is everywhere also. Especially for lamps.

Navy walls are definitely a thing also.
I expect blush pink to be big as well.

Moving away from just open plan to a reception plus kitchen diner.

Island/ breakfast bars seem on the way out.

Having cycle storage and a home office is a current trend.

Maybe veg gardens will be the Brexit trend?

We have a navy/copper kitchen. It's gorgeous but we're moving so will be embarking on a new project.
I think I'll go for a muted kitchen this time, quite classic!
There won't be any grey in the new house!

I think the grey/white/blush themes are a bit 2018

Brick slip feature walls

Huge family / dining / kitchens with bifolds.
Lots of my friends have them, and confess in whispers that they wish they didn't, they are always messy if you've young dc, and besides you can't seem to get away from anyone to cook in peace. I'm very glad I didn't go down that road.

I’ve seen a big rise in Shaker-style kitchens (which I think are awful) and big single-story extensions out into the garden to turn a small-medium kitchen into a kitchen-dining-living space - which always seem too multi-purpose with everyone getting in everyone else’s way.

If you want inspiration for what might help your house sell (which I assume is what you’re looking for because surely if this inspiration were for your day to day life you’d go with what you actually liked rather than what might be the next “big thing” confused) then stick to neutral and easy to change because one person’s trendy and fashionable is another’s nightmare.

I've still got a dark forest green bread bin from the last time it was fashionable!
I'm coming to the end of our refurb and it's hard to avoid trends unless you can afford custom made bespoke stuff. I've ended up with more grey than I intended, (though it's mainly white and pale wood.) The plan is for a neutral background personalised by pictures and soft furnishings. As recommended by Pinterest!
I've kidded myself that I'm not influenced by fashion but 10 years down the line it will scream 2020 refurb. I'll have to hang on until it come round again like my bread bin! wink

Navy & dark grey kitchens. Gloss & concrete surfaces & cupboards in kitchens (like a mortuary). Spindley legged furniture. mural walls (or murials as my old boss used to call them). Dark Green sofas. house Plants everywhere. Open plan living. Still lots of pale grey and blush pink too. Thankfully, brown and teal has died a death.

I’d avoid any trends if I were you. They date so quickly. Best going for a timeless style imo.

GreenTiles22 Tue 08-Sep-20 18:44:53

New trends coming in.,,, herringbone floor, marble work tops, gold kitchen handles & taps.

Nighttimefreedom Tue 08-Sep-20 18:47:39

Am I the only one who wants coloured bathroom suites to make a comeback? I love them!

Thecazelets Tue 08-Sep-20 18:53:26

Crittal style windows instead of bifolds, and marble all-in one islands with herringbone parquet floors seem to be the thing round here at the moment.

MumUndone Tue 08-Sep-20 19:09:55

I love coloured bathroom suites too!

somewheresorted Tue 08-Sep-20 19:13:10

Panelling, blush pink

IdrisElbow Tue 08-Sep-20 19:16:52

The herringbone floor patterns make me feel queasy when I look at them! It's so strange.

Does anyone have any suggestions for good house accounts on Insta or Pinterest that show just quite neutral, classically done houses? I like the scandi style (though maybe that would also be classed as a trend?!). I follow loads on Insta but they are all so overdone and 'on trend' and samey 😬

Gingernaut Tue 08-Sep-20 19:18:10

Bold monochrome statements are in, but washing the room in the same colour everywhere is out.

Grey on grey, pale monochrome and kitchen islands are out, apparently.


EmilySpinach Tue 08-Sep-20 19:40:06

It doesn’t really matter how bleeding-edge any trends suggested here are; there will be someone who will roll their eyes and declare them ‘dated’.

I think as a general rule, however, people are starting to use colour again after years of grey.

Fundingconundrum Tue 08-Sep-20 19:41:02

Navy is definitely the next big thing

Theradioison Tue 08-Sep-20 19:44:43

Navy is definitely the next big thing I think it's well and truly here tbh.

Be gone please grey everything

BabetteAteOtemeal Tue 08-Sep-20 19:46:33

Navy ain't the next big thing.. its the current thing! Next big kitchen trend will be powder pink units and colour clash I think.

Herringbone flooring
'Railings' painted skirting and door surrounds
A shit ton of indoor plants
Prints that say things like 'YES!' and 'DREAMER' in naice typography
Brass and gold accents, natch
Horizontally half painted walls
Yellow velvet sofa
That fucking la redoute rug
