With so many decidedly diverse home décor trends this year, how do we pick a lasting good look for a bathroom or kitchen renovation?

Variety is the spice of life, and this year’s home décor trends prove it with so many different looks to try. But, just how do these trends translate in bathrooms and kitchens?

International trend-forecasters predicted colour palettes are on completely opposite ends of the spectrum for 2019: from restful milky ice-cream colours with a new retro flavour and a seventies twist teamed with gold and brass accents, to elegant, graceful interiors boasting shades of teal, grey flannel, burgundy and inky blacks – and all the way through to energising colours such as spicy reds, blood orange, rich cappuccino, sumptuous chocolate and tart greens that invoke memories of the foods we love and crave.

Before choosing a colour scheme or theme, it’s worth asking yourself if you prefer a home that feels like a sanctuary, filled with soothing, restful colours and textures or if you’re a lover of the dramatic – wanting to be surrounded by warmth and vibrancy all day?

Your answer will help you choose looks from these kitchen and bathroom home décor trends, identified by WOMAG, South African supplier of premium quality natural stone tiles and surfaces: :
