Top Home Trends of 2018

February 15, 2018
Published by

According Realtor.com and WashingtonPost.com, here are some of the top homes trends for 2018:



Bold Floral Prints – Floral prints have been around for a while and will continue to be popular this year but in a more contrasting way! You can incorporate this print in your furniture, wall decor/art and even bedding! In addition to floral prints, bolder colors like yellow and olive green will be the 2018 interior colors for your home.

More Colors in the kitchen – White and gray were the “in” colors last year to have in your kitchen and bathrooms, but this year we will start to notice colors, like blue and charcoal, being popular cabinet colors. Adding these colors into your kitchen and bathrooms cabinets, will give your home a fresh and unique feel when compared to others.

Sinks – Stainless steel and white sinks are out for this year but this doesn’t mean the “farmhouse” style is out! Instead, we will start to notice more black, copper and stone sinks. Having this type of sink in your home, will give it a more rustic feel. Also, bucket or trough sinks are coming in style for bathrooms and laundry rooms to add to the “farmhouse” style.

Mixed Metals – Like last year, mixing different types of metals in your home is still trending. This year, you will see more black and brass faucets and fixtures in kitchens and bathrooms. If you aren’t a fan of the industrial look in your home, pair these items with natural stone like marble or quartz. Even adding small metal accents to your countertops or living room will add character to your home.

Quartz, quartz and more quartz – Just like 2017, quartz continues to be popular and is taking the place of granite in all homes. This year, you will see more than standard white and gray colors. Dark grays, black and speckled quartz will be trending to give a contrast to your kitchen and bathrooms.

  • "I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steven. From the owner Mike Salomon down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder." Neal Massey
  • "I purchased my house on 1/31/17. I have the Coronado plan. The process of adding upgrades was very easy. The closing went very smoothly. Mike was great to work with! Since the closing, I’ve had a few minor issues come up. I can’t say enough about Steven! He has always been extremely helpful and has fixed all of these minor issues or set me up with the person who can fix them. He is great!
    I love my home! I feel like I got a good value for the location. I look forward to enjoying my house in the years to come!" Kris Kieta
  • "We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house." Andres and Marcela
