2019 Idaho Real Estate Blog

Here is what the experts are saying for design trends for 2019 Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

Many feel like they’re exactly in line with what we are seeing while others feel like they’re trying to make “fetch” happen.


2019 Overall Themes – Natural and Relaxed
Expect to see more design oriented around being fresh. This includes natural materials such as stone, copper, concrete, quartz and granite. These elements add an organic and serene ambiance to a space.

Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year – Metropolitan AF-690
I can’t complain much here. It’s a nice gray, but also grays have been in for a while. Some designers, like Jeff Andrews of Andrews Design, are opting for stark white and warm neutrals instead. (On a related note, I visited Tahoe over the summer and his Lake Tahoe project is definitely on point. I’m crushing on it!)

Sherwin Williams’s Color of the Year – Cavern Clay SW 7701
Earth tones have been making a big come-back for a while but really big lately.

Appliances – Not Stainless
Stainless has been the standard for two decades and now we all want something new and different.  Welcome the black matte finishes! These colors are fun and very cool. They also bring a great opportunity to stand out and put your own personality into your kitchen. That being said, expect silver to remain a popular choice.

Floors – New Products and Creative Applications
There are more creative options in 2019. Unique patterns and unconventional widths will bring the opportunity to show a lot of individuality. Newer materials are growing in popularity as textured materials. American-made products are also in demand. Wood and stone-look floors are even more in demand. Contemporary, coastal and farmhouse will be the most sought-after flooring styles next year. Flooring trends don’t change nearly as often as fashion. Right now we have more options than ever before, and new advancements in technology will continue to ensure we haven’t seen the best options yet.

Fixtures – Bright Metallic, Hammered Finishes and (Yes, Even) Brass
Expect to see some gold, but there is an obvious away from shift from bright, reflective gold. Black and darker matte fixtures contrasted with white and bold colors in ceramic sinks are new and trending.

Lighting – Industrial, Vintage, Unique
Industrial styles and vintage light bulbs will continue to the trend.  Some very unique lighting styles with personalized forms and more ability to adjust strength and color of the light are coming. Geometric shapes will be a hit as well.

Furniture – Smaller in Natural Tones and Metals
Natural materials and metals again! “Handmade with a story behind it” will continue to be popular. Look for cool, modern concepts.  The surge in popularity of mid-century modern has created some interesting hybrids. Wood furniture pieces in solid teak and reclaimed wood will be particularly popular. 

Art and Decor – More Etsy, Less Pinterest
Bring out a  few mason jars and terrariums here or there. In the Northwest there’s no shortage of glass blowers, potters or painters, so go out there and purchase some great pieces from local artists who truly know what they’re doing. Many even offer classes if you still prefer the DIY approach.
