You are never the trendy house in the neighborhood. You like to keep your design classic and the same every year. Or maybe you are just afraid to step outside your comfort zone. It is true that home design trends don’t last forever, but you can look through some of the ideas that will be coming to the homes in your area in 2016. Maybe one or two of them will strike your fancy and you can surprise your friends with your new found sense of style. Remember, that you shouldn’t tackle everyone. Not only would it cost a bunch of money and take a lot of time, the trends don’t always look good together. Just start to dip your toe in a little. If you have kids, you may want to consider using outdoor fabrics for your indoor furniture and pillows. The fabric tends to be more durable and can stand up to the beating that kids and pets give it. Or if you have ever been envious of Europeans and their bidets, they are starting to make ground in U.S. households as well. It would take your bathroom to a whole new level. Maybe 2016 is the year you start to minimize your home decor. It has become trendy to create an open kitchen, that isn’t filled with utensils, spices and cabinets. Or decorate a living room that isn’t centered around technology. It might seem impossible to do this day and age, but think about the quality time you could spend in the space. The home decor trends for 2016 don’t stop there. Keep reading for more ideas until you find one or two that work for you.
