A new year means a whole new set of trends in interior design, and a lot of those trends have to do with how you decorate your walls. The painting trends will have a big impact in this space, and there are many different designs that have become popular entering the new year. From old favorites making a comeback to new and interesting ideas, there are lots of creative ways you can put the interior of your home en vogue for 2024.
Accent Walls Still Have Impact
Accent walls have been in style for a few years now, and the trend doesn’t look like it’s slowing down – but it may be changing a bit. Accent walls deliver a sharp identity to a space and bring plenty of versatility. However, the impact of one accent wall surrounded by three white walls may be going away.
Many people still use the stark contrast of the accent wall but surround it with other colors in the space. These walls are still a budget-friendly way to change a space, and they allow quick makeovers to the room to adjust to evolving trends. That makes them a timeless alternative as other trends come and go.
Painted Ceilings on the Rise
Painting rooms are no longer confined to the four walls. One of the most unique trends entering 2024 will be painted ceilings. Painting the ceiling the same color as the walls can make the room seem a bit larger. Painting the ceiling a contrasting color will have the same impact as an accent wall – giving the space a focal point, even if people have to look up to see it. These ceilings definitely add personality to the room. This technique can make smaller rooms feel bigger, and darker colors can make a room feel more intimate. Much like accent walls, there are a bunch of different directions you can go when painting a ceiling, depending on what you want from the space.
Natural Materials Are Making a Comeback
While paint can drastically change any space, another style that is making a return is classic, natural finishes. Natural materials like hardwoods are back in, and staining these woods to match your space can give any room a unique look. More natural elements are being incorporated into homes, particularly in the kitchen. Painted kitchens have long been popular, but more and more homes are moving toward the natural wood tones. The natural look of wood and stained wood brings a sense of warmth and coziness. One of our favorite natural wood features is a stained wooden beam to add grandeur to your space.
