5 Home Design Trends to Watch in 2018



2017 was a year of massive home designs reinvention thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT). We've seen homes with voice-controlled gadgets, smart security systems, and intelligent home assistants among others. Siri and Hello egg (the smart kitchen assistant), just to mention a few, were welcomed into several homes. But what's in store for 2018? 

Roof Top Decks
The population is growing day by day, and that means less building space. Rooftop decks will now start replacing backyard decks for three major reasons;
  • Rooftops are an excellent way to enjoy unobstructed sunlight.
  • The view is always fantastic up there.
  • Regarding building space, you are not limited vertically.
Modern designers are getting creative with rooftop ideas. In apartment buildings, we've seen rooftop windows and sunrooms, rooftop swimming pools, as well as rooftop lounges. The possibilities are endless. Homeowners will now follow suit. Add a table, patio chairs, and a themed umbrella, and you get the perfect rooftop deck.



Smart Bulbs and Natural Light
Smart bulbs are internet controlled light bulbs that you can switch on and off using your smartphone wherever you are. You can also dim or brighten them. Besides, you can program them to operate at certain times of the day or whichever way you prefer. However, much of their use in the past has been in commercial buildings. This year, homeowners are most likely to start embracing them.

Looking to let the light in? Natural sunlight in the home is an economical and hip way to make your home more functional, inviting and to reduce those energy bills (just be sure to make sure your windows, sunrooms, conservatories and glass doors are Energy Star Certified to offer energy savings year round. 

Wide Glass Doors, Sunrooms and Bright Hallways
To make homes look more spacious, designers are now focusing on the use of broad glass doors and hallways. The glass doors also allow more natural light while wide hallways create a feeling of more living space.



Open Plan Kitchen Shelving
Kitchens make a strong statement in any home. In the past years, kitchen designs have been revamped with the most recent innovation being open kitchen plans which were well received. This year, expect to see open plan kitchen shelving because of two reasons;
  • Kitchen gadgets and equipment are getting sophisticated each day, and homeowners will be looking for an appropriate way to showcase them.
  • Open plan shelves give more storage room and make the kitchen look spacious.
Compact Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are the next big thing. Not only do they save you space, but they are also very energy efficient. They just heat and dispense the exact amount of water you require which means you save water as well as the heating fuel used (electricity or gas).
