2. Japanese style houses

There is no doubt that Japanese style houses will continue dominating the market for years to come. This trend has been popular for quite some time now because it brings together nature and technology in an effort to create an elegant yet minimalist look and feel.

The use of natural materials such as wood and stone helps bring out this theme while incorporating modern appliances such as TVs and laptops into the design helps make it functional as well.

3. Smart home technology

The smart home concept is a way of life for many people. It's hard to imagine living without the convenience of having your thermostat turn on when you leave work and come home to a cozy house, or being able to dim the lights from your smartphone as you get ready for bed.

Smart homes are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners recognize how much time they can save and effort they can save by installing these systems.

Smart home technology has been around for a while now, but it’s only recently that homeowners have been able to reap the benefits of the technology. Smart homes can be controlled with your smartphone, which means you can unlock doors and turn on lights from anywhere in the world. Plus, smart locks mean you can never forget your keys again!

4. Extended kitchen flooring

One of the most popular home design trends today is extending the kitchen flooring into other areas of the home.

This can include extending tile or wood flooring into an adjoining dining room or living room. It also includes extending laminate flooring into an entryway or hallway.

The advantage of this trend is that it provides a seamless look throughout your entire home while still allowing each room to have its own unique style.

5. All black everything

Black is the new white in home design. It’s been an emerging trend for the last couple of years, but it has finally arrived at the point where it can no longer be ignored.

This trend is all about monochromatic schemes and dark colors. It’s not just limited to walls and floors but also extends to furniture and accessories as well. The best part about this trend is that it can be easily incorporated into any type of design style, whether modern or traditional.

Black walls create a sense of drama and intrigue in any space, especially if you use them in combination with other colors and textures. The best way to incorporate this trend into your next project is to use high-gloss paint for all of your walls, ceilings and trim work.

6. Mixing and matching wood tones

Some people like the look of all-wood floors, but others prefer to mix and match different kinds of wood tones for a more unique look. This trend works especially well with light colored floors because it can make them look darker than they really are.

7. Bathrooms with walk-in showers

Bathrooms with walk-in showers are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners. These types of bathrooms offer roomy shower areas with glass doors and floor-to-ceiling tiled walls. The shower area has no tub and is accessible from any direction.

10. Mid-century modern furniture pieces

Mid-century furniture is making a comeback, with more people looking for pieces that will make their home look classic, elegant and timeless.

Steel furniture like the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman has been popular for years, but there are many other options available today. These pieces can add elegance to any room in your home and will withstand the test of time.

What's more, many of these elements and styles are also likely to show up in commercial innovations as well. And with that in mind, it's clear that you can expect plenty of new and exciting opportunities to come your way.
