Home Decor Trends You Have to Try in 2019

Posted on December 31, 2018 by Michelle Lefurgey

Home Decor Trends You Have to Try in 2019 Featured ImageIn 2019, several home decor trends will be worth your time and effort. Periodic decor facelifts will help keep your home looking updated at all times. Eco-friendly remains in style, and you'll be glad to see that geometric patterns are also going to be a big deal this year.

Let's take a closer look at the latest decor trends for 2019 and how you can use them in your home!


An eco-friendly look is not only good for the environment but makes your home look great. Furniture made from reclaimed materials can help you get a rustic or even antique look. You want to make the most of these materials, but keep the atmosphere inviting by selecting pieces for their comfort level. 

A wall full of live plants is one way to give your living areas an eco-friendly look. These plants will not only provide a touch of nature but also have other benefits. Live plants help purify the air in your home.

One of the things that stands out the most about geometric patterns is that they never go out of style. Geometric patterns pair nicely with minimalist designs. Living areas usually see the most benefit from this style. 

Decorative pillows with geometric patterns used on a solid-coloured couch are a subtle statement. Throws in these types of patterns are also nice couch and loveseat additions. Consider adding some miniature prints with a lot of geometric shapes in the design to the mix. 

Dome and Mushroom Lamps/Fixtures 

Dome and mushroom-shaped lamps became a major decor feature in 2018 and will become even more of a big deal in 2019. These lights are popular primarily because of both their unique design and colour selections. Sculptural additions give your room a different look without too much effort. 

These lights are ideal for use in bedrooms, as well as living areas. A wall-mounted mushroom light will provide additional soft lighting without taking up a lot of space. An advantage of dome lights is their ability to provide extra light for reading or other activities without causing too much glare. 

Tribal and Ethnic Patterns 

Natural wood and earthy colours are expected to become prominent in 2019, opening the door for another hot trend. Tribal and ethnic designs both fit in beautifully with these types of materials. Caramel, white, and black are also perfect colours for blending in with ethnic designs. 

Furniture with natural wood and cushions with tribal patterns are ideal for living areas. Adding decorative plates or sculptures featuring wildlife that you can display on your shelves and cabinets is one way to get the most out of this look. Also, consider using some throws with cheetah, leopard or zebra patterns for extra emphasis.

Tempered glass makes for a stunning table surface that will be sure to impress everyone who visits your home. Many of these glass pieces are designed with irregular veins similar to those you might find on a marble surface. One of the nicest things about these types of tables is the high-end appearance that they give the room. 

Choosing decor accents that complement these surfaces is a perfect way to get maximum use out of these tables. One of the advantages of a glass table surface is how much extra light the glass seemingly gives to the room. Regardless of whether the table has a functional use or is mostly a decorative piece, you won't regret deciding to pursue this option. 

Bolder Primary Colours 

Over the last few years, both pastel and deeper jewelled tones have had their turn brightening up homes. If you're about ready to see primary colours return, you'll likely get your wish in 2019. Mustard yellow, indigo blue, and rust red are a few variations that are likely to appear in decor items. 

A deeper red used on a living room bench is an excellent way to make use of this bright colour palette option. Indigo pillows provide a little bit of extra contrast, as well as provide some softness. Floral arrangements in yellow tones used on tables in the same room provide an ideal means of pulling the look together. 

When deciding which decor trends you want to incorporate in your home, keep our most popular home styles in mind, along with your decorating tastes. Should you be purchasing your first home, you'll want to make sure you have all kinds of ideas for what to do when you move in.
