A bathroom is often an ideal space to show off new trends. For example, eye-catching tile—like the white-and-grey veining tile and contrasting dark wood pictured—can take a neutral space to new levels of sophistication. Other current trends for this area of the home include convenient double sinks.

As the heart of the home, it’s no surprise the kitchen is a major focus for designer details. An elegant tile backsplash and coordinating accessories go a long way in creating a chic and welcoming space. Another design element that’s become a kitchen staple is the eat-in island, creating an inviting environment with seating for guests and family. If your kitchen features a center island, you may enjoy learning about the 50 most popular barstools in for 2019.

Great room

Striking fireplace tile in the great room is all the rage, both accentuating the warmth and cozy appeal of the fireplace while adding flair with dazzling colors, patterns and textures. Get even more creative with a complementary area rug and mantelpiece.

Laundry room design may seem like an afterthought, but this frequently used space deserves attention, too! Adding cabinetry, a tile backsplash and/or sink is both popular and practical.


As we head toward warmer weather, creating an appealing outdoor entertaining area is key. Many modern homeowners are taking this space to the next level with built-in outdoor grills—complete with tile flooring and seating areas. You can also always accessorize with water-resistant patio furniture.

We hope that these ideas and photos from Richmond American Homes will help inspire your spaces!
