Is it trending?

First, let's define the word “trend”. We’re going to be exploring the 3rd definition online as: A topic that is the subject of many posts on a social media site or application within a short period of time.

Home design trends are constantly evolving, reflecting the changing tastes and preferences of homeowners. But what exactly is a trend? It's a popular style or pattern that gains traction for a while before eventually fading away as new trends emerge. We see this in every aspect of modern life, from TikTok dances to DIY ideas.

One thing to keep in mind is that following home design trends can be an expensive endeavor. As trends change, so do the products and materials associated with them, often requiring homeowners to invest in costly renovations or updates to stay current. We must consider what trend to follow and which ones we should allow to die as quickly as they were born. We need to envoke the concept of, “ Just it could be done, doesn’t mean it should be done.” For a visual representation of this, Google “carpet in the bathroom” trends of the 50’s and 60’s.

Another challenge when itcomes to home design trends is the abundance of opinions. Everyone seems to have their idea of what constitutes good design, making it difficult for homeowners to navigate through the sea of conflicting advice. Something to consider when watching social media trends is that these videos are filmed much the same way a movie is. These are multiple takes, editing, and multiple off-camera fixes all to serve the final product of a video that grabs your attention. Most of these concepts are impractical at best, and some downright ridiculous.

However, embracing home design trends can also be an exciting and creative process. It allows individuals to explore different styles and experiment with new ideas in order to create a space that reflects their personal taste and lifestyle. They can inspire us in ways we never imagined and push us outside of our creative comforts.

Ultimately, home design trends serve as sources of inspiration rather than strict guidelines. They provide us with fresh ideas and possibilities for transforming our living spaces into something unique and visually appealing. So whether you choose to follow the latest trends or create your own style, remember that the most important aspect of home design is creating a space that feels like home for you and your loved ones.
