Looking to find great tenants for your monthly rental? Then consider doing an interior makeover. To help attract those high quality renters, here are a few of the fun and exciting 2018 design trends to inspire you:
LIGHTING AND FIXTURES
Design experts forecast that vintage pendant lighting and sconces will big in 2018. Vintage-inspired, locally made fixtures like bucket sinks are also expected to be high demand items.
2018 will also see increased emphasis on natural materials like concrete and granite to enhance interiors. Stone kitchen or bathroom countertops are especially popular. As with artisan lighting/fixtures, the move is very much away from the high-tech and towards the organic.
The watchword for 2018 colors is bold. Why not make the existing decor in your midterm rental home “pop” by adding furnishings or accent pieces in rich reds, bright burnt yellows, or natural greens? A splash of the paint in cheerful millennial pink — a popular carryover from 2017 — could be just the design tonic your kitchen or bathroom needs.
When it comes to metal, design experts see 2018 as the year of brass and copper. The warm tones of both metals mark a welcome change from the expected stainless steel and polished nickel. By updating faucets, door handles and other metallic objects, you add an inviting earthy glow to your mid term rental home.
2018 will be no different from 2017, which was a comeback year for wallpaper. What will be different is the emphasis on prints and especially on agate-inspired designs. With its color variety and natural lines, agate wallpaper is the perfect marriage of the bold and natural trends design experts forecast for 2018.
Many designers are betting that velvet will be a major upholstery trend this year. Why not consider adding a soft, luxurious velvet sofa or loveseat to the living room of your midterm rental? Velvet harkens back to the bohemian 70s, an era experts believe will inform furniture design all through 2018.
Florals and geometrics that exaggerate proportions and use bold, contrasting colors will be big news in 2018. A simple way to add stylishness to your monthly rental home is to add pillows with these types of designs to chairs and sofas.
Interior beautification can be as simple as painting the walls in your home a stylish color, putting a funky fur throw onto your sofa and adding a few brass or copper decorations. Whatever your budget and choices, it’s an investment sure to pay long-term rental dividends.
