Popular Home-Design Trends for 2019

If you're wondering what's popular this season, check out these five trends as described by Better Homes and Gardens:

Black Trim Is In
People used to go for wood or white when it came to choosing trim, especially around the windows. The style has now shifted to more people selecting deep shades of black. They're not limiting it to the windows either. Doors, shelves, and walls are all good candidates for black trim. Homeowners love the aesthetically pleasing and unique contrast that black trim provides throughout the living space.

Building with Sustainability in Mind
The more environmentally conscious we become as a nation, the more people take personal responsibility for the use of our resources. When it comes to customizing a home, some of the popular choices include selecting reclaimed wood as a building material and designing the home so that it's more efficient at natural heating and cooling.

Home Libraries
Reading on electronic devices may be all the rage, but people still love to collect and display printed books. That is evident in the number of people requesting the addition of a home library to their office or family room. Whether it's a few shelves or an entire wall, it's a good design choice to have an area to display your books.

Home Offices
There's no denying that we live in a gig economy, with more people freelancing or working for an employer from home than at any point in history. This requires a dedicated space for homeowners to get their work done. Even those who don't work from home appreciate having one place in the home to go to pay bills, get caught up on email, and do other personal tasks.

Open Ceilings
An open ceiling gives a room more air, light, and a sense of spaciousness—everyone loves the welcoming appeal of an open ceiling in a dining room. While the open-ceiling trend previously appeared only in two-story homes, it's now shifting to include smaller homes too.
