Follow the latest trends and have your home looking like a magazine cover

When it comes time to renting out property, it’s vital that your property is as appealing as possible to attract the right tenant. The best way to do so is to ensure that your property is in line with the latest trends.

A forecast for popular trends in 2018;

1. Deep accented colours
Emerald, plum and navy will be very popular colour schemes for interiors. In addition, faux fur and velvet will remain popular for bedrooms and living rooms.

2. Glam and elegance
Next year will also be the year for glam and elegance.
Glam and regency style appear in hotel designs while furniture retailers are embracing metallic materials and elegant-looking items.
Things such as replica faux bamboo trim and bold acrylic furniture items feature with this trend. Find these looks in shops like the Vignette Room, Coco Republic and Pottery Barn.

3. Japandi
A variation on the very popular scandi style that has been popular the last few years, the Japandi style gives preference to dark wood tones, greys, blacks and mint green and deep blue wedge accents over soft pinks and blues.

4. Raw earth
A newcomer to the style stage, raw earth offers aesthetics similar to Nordic looks, with rustic furniture and pieces that appear to have been found and crafted by hand.Think timber stools that look like tree trunks, sisal rugs, very neutral accents and manuals like calico, hemp and wool being used with a mix of linen in greys, beiges and white.

5. Round edges and nostalgic colours
Next year is expected to see furniture become chunkier, rounder and in primary colours.

More designs are popping up with chunkier frames and very round or organic-looking overall, with bright primary coloured furniture reminiscent of childhood.
