One of the most interesting 2018 interior design trends is the use of mixed textures. There are different kinds of materials that are being mixed and matched for the interior design and decor.

11. Minimalistic kitchen decor:
Gone are the days, when kitchens used to have so many shelves, cupboards and appliances stacked up on the kitchen cook top or prep section.

Now that you have learnt about the latest interior design trends 2018, it will be easier for you to go with the one that will be most suitable for you. However, while following these tips, always keep in mind that the trends may come and go, but you might not be able to transform them every year.
