When it comes to styling your home, you want to choose pieces you will still like in a few years. Especially if you have paid a lot of money for them. If you have kids, you want furniture and home decor that will withstand family life, look good, and not become dated because life is expensive enough without having it frequently replace your furniture.
I thought I would put together a post looking at 5 home decor trends that won’t go out of style and will continue to look good in your home year after year.
There are so many window dressings you can opt for, and pretty much everyone has some window covering to add privacy to your home. That is, unless you are lucky enough to live in a beautiful location with no neighbours and stunning views, it would be a crime to block out!
But more than just adding a layer of privacy, security and insulation, you need them to look good. Be it blinds, net curtains or shutters.
If like me, you love the look and style of wooden window shutters, you can be confident they will be in style and a staple for home decor trends for many years to come.
California Shutters’ wooden shutters are made to measure using top-quality materials and can be made in a range of colours, styles and designs to suit your chosen home decor style. This means you can rest assured that you can find the perfect fit regardless of your windows. You can even buy DIY shutters to install yourself too.
While it might seem like recessed shelving is having somewhat of a revival of late, it has always been a popular choice for people renovating their homes. If you follow home improvement accounts on social media, you will see recessed shelves being incorporated in many different rooms. From an alcove space in living rooms and bedrooms to inside shower cubicles and wet rooms.
The beauty of adding recessed shelving is you can get a more seamless and cohesive feel in your room without shelves jutting out and impacting the aesthetic you are going for. This is perfect for families who want a more secure option with young children around and fewer obstructions around the home.
You can’t go wrong with adding plants to your home, and providing you are able to keep them alive; you will find they never go out of style. Plants, allergies, and pets are suitable for all areas of the home and can add that natural element indoors and create a welcoming space.
They instantly add a splash of colour to your home, and whether you use a few well-placed potted plants or create a mini jungle by hanging them from the ceiling and door frames, you can add as many or as little as you please.
Can’t have natural plants? Then add some faux ones for the same vibe and feel within your home and benefit from the fact that you can’t kill fake plants; all they need is regular dusting, and they are there for life.
Wood panelling immediately has the effect of making a space instantly more relaxing and welcoming by adding depth through colour and texture regardless of how you incorporate it into your home.
Reed panelling is becoming popular for many homes with a modern aesthetic. Still, simple, understated board and batten style painted in the same colour as the surrounding walls or contrasted, shiplap for an entire wood-panelled wall or flat panelling, you have so many options you can choose to personalise your home with.
Neutral Colours and Materials
Whether you choose to add a few select items or adopt this style throughout your whole home, there are so many eco and design reasons to go natural. But mostly because it is a style and colour palette that will never date. Neutral colours and fabrics will never not be in fashion. Whether you change up hues over the years or refresh with the same paint on the wall, you can create a calm relaxing vibe by opting for neutral.
Laying a range of mixed colours of carpet tiles is a great way to experiment with covering your floor. Carpet tile wholesale offer very good value.
Add some boho-chic by bringing in macrame-style wall coverings and shelving options, or furnish your home using cream-coloured furniture and seating options. Jute rugs, linens and twine are all ideas for home decor trends that won’t go out of style.
I would love to know what your favourite design trends are!
Do you have these options at home, or have you been looking at them? What do you think? Have I missed any other home decor trends?

Karen, the next best thing to mummy says
Totatally agree with the window shutters especially#kcacols
These are such cute ideas. I just painted one of our wood paneled room a lighter color and the difference is staggering. We love it! Can’t wait to finish more of the changes we have planned. Thanks for hosting! #KCACOLS last one.

I love plants and shelves. Not so much the window shutters. I’m a little disappointed by how sterile neutral colors are lately. I need splashes of color and want to show my individuality! I don’t live in a doctor’s waiting room.

I forgot! #KCACOLS

Ohhh I do love me some plants in the house … although I’m not always the best at looking after them, ha! And I have someone coming to quote for recessed shelving this week – I’m all about thing being neat, tidy and organised. #KCACOLS
I’m currently re-doing my dining room and there are sliding doors that go out to the deck that are currently naked. Wooden shutters is something that I hadn’t considered #KCACOLS
Jade Page says
OHH yes some fab suggestions I would love to add some wood panelling and recessed shelves in our house. Have been thinking about wooden shutters too. I think I am just jealous of the stunning looking home in the pictures !! #KCACOLS
Laura - Mummy Lauretta says
I love all of these especially the wood panelling which you can save money on by doing it yourself and indoor plants always make a room look complete #KCACOLS
Dana, A Mamanista Life says
I love these suggestions! I think my favourite has to be the wood paneling as I love how it transforms a room xx #KCACOLS
I generally like a neutral base, which can be added to with older items (antiques or vintage etc), and more colourful textiles, rugs etc. The house we’re currently renting has white walls throughout, in combination with wooden floors and neutral carpets, and I find that very relaxing x #KCACOLS
