When it comes to modern home designs, certain trends capture our hearts momentarily, only to seem out-of-date a few years later. While predicting which current design choices will fall out of favour is not an exact science, examining the patterns and preferences of today can provide valuable insights. In this guide, we explore various modern designs that, while popular now, might not retain their charm in the future.
1. Modern Rustic Style
This style combines natural materials like wood and stone with modern elements. It’s characterized by natural wood cabinets, stone countertops, and backsplashes, but its rustic appeal might not stand the test of time as preferences evolve.
2. Modern Farmhouse Style
A more refined version of the traditional farmhouse style, this trend includes elements like dramatic cabinet colours, oversized range hoods, and slab stone backsplashes. While currently popular, its specific aesthetic might become too associated with this period, leading to a dated look in the future.
3. Modern Spanish Style
This updated approach to Mediterranean elements includes features like terra-cotta floor tiles and hand-painted backsplashes. Although unique, its very distinctiveness might limit its long-term appeal.
4. Warm and Soft Palettes (Beige Craze)
Light woods, beige, greige and off-white paired with warm bronze and brass finishes are currently in vogue. However, as colour trends shift, these choices might soon feel outdated. Although you can’t go wrong with neutrals, an overwhelmingly cream-coloured space will certainly be a mark of the early 2020s.
5. Bright and Quirky Elements
On the flip side, we have maximalists challenging the beige craze with bold colours and patterns. Although cheery and fun, the current adoration of this trend likely won’t last. What’s more, this trend isn’t as universally appealing, even when it is in style.
