When it comes to trends, whether we are referring to fashion trends, home trends, or even food trends, it is important to be able to distinguish the difference between a trend and a fad. A trend is a general new development or change that people will collectively tend to stick to for a longer period whereas a fad is something that will go out of style just as quickly as it became one. With that being said, let’s go ahead and jump into a few fads to avoid this year as well as some of the best home trends that will make a long-lasting impression in your home for years to come.
Sofa Trends and Fads
One quick example of a home fad would be bubble-shaped sofas. While this may seem like a stylish trend to hop on board with – for the moment, that is – this type of design will likely not age as gracefully as one may like; especially because sofas do not come cheap. Therefore, you may be better off investing your money in a couch that will last you for years, or at least, longer than that bubble couch you might be eyeing. While on the topic of sofas, let’s move into a few sofa trends of the year that will be worth investing in. A few sofa trends in homes this year include:
While this may sound like a fad, velvet sofas are a popular trend that can last for years. Not only are these velvet sofas beautiful and eye-catching, but velvet is also a durable fabric that can withstand stains, cat scratches, and more.
Although this may sound like a drastic choice, a green sofa has been the trend of the year due to its unique way of pulling a space together in a classic, sophisticated manner.
Vintage Style Sofas
Vintage seems to be the big thing this year. From the previously mentioned velvet fabrics to old-fashioned colors and designs, vintage may just be the winner of home trends this year.
These have always been in style. It may be safe to say that you could never go wrong with a luxurious leather sofa.
Not only are these oversized couches exceedingly comfortable, but they are stylish and lavish as well. In addition to this, these oversized couches are perfect for large living rooms and are best decorated with more minimal counter pieces such as coffee tables. They can also be styled with large, vintage rugs to tie the entire living room space together.
Kitchen Trends and Fads
Green is truly the center of attention when it comes to the most popular home trends of 2021. Whether you are buying a new green sofa or replacing your old kitchen cabinets with a beautiful new shade of green, it is the color of the year. This is because the color green works well with both cool and warm palettes, therefore you really couldn’t go wrong with this one. This brings us to the kitchen fad that is officially going out of style: monochromatic, white kitchens. That’s right, it is officially time to ditch the all-white marble kitchen and go for a pop of color this year.
Wall Trends and Fads
Another fad that is making its way out is the fad of accent walls. Instead, many people are following the new home trends of peel-and-stick wallpaper. Yes, wallpaper has been making a comeback for quite some time now. Not only is it an easy change, but it is also easy to remove if you decide it may not be the trend for you.
