The new year is almost upon us, which means many new beginnings as well as a new set of trends hitting the interior design scene. Trends are constantly changing and developing, including those of interior design.

Perhaps more than any other fluctuating trends, statements within interior design create a storm on their arrival, making for excited homeowners, architects and even lift suppliers!

home lift is a great statement of style and can fit into any up and coming trends. Here at Axess 2, we don’t just know the ins, outs, ups and downs of lifts, through our work with architects we also have a great understanding of the latest design trends and how our innovative lifts tie in perfectly with your ideal look.

2018 is sure to bring some inspiration for any lover of interior design and architecture, but what will be the most popular design trends of next year, and how can you make a home lift tie in perfectly with these designs?


While metallic accents in the home have been popular in the interior design world in 2017, 2018 is set to see this trend become even bigger.

Gold, brass, silver, bronze and even rose gold are going to see a continuation in their popularity, however, there is a slight change in the types of metallic being utilised by architects and interior designers. A fresher palette is being predicted, with a focus on polished nickel and silver touches. An industrial feel is certainly something to consider and will help your interiors to stand out from the crowd – presenting a unique yet timeless style.

Of all the metallic tones, bronze will be the top of the style ladder, so consider incorporating this into your design –  whether it’s something as simple as the light fittings or something bolder like such as a home lift.
