Home Design Trends to Watch out for in 2020


I, and so many others, are ready to extend a warm welcome to a new decade and the year 2020. Of course, the beginning of the year is the perfect time to set new personal and life goals for oneself, but why stop there? Personally, one of my resolutions for this year is to make the most out of my home’s space. After all, your home is an extension of yourself, and it’s about time mine is a better, more updated reflection of myself and my future goals. Why not do the same? If you’re ready to make some fresh changes to your home, here are my favorite trends that are likely to take the interior design world by storm this year. From the small touches to full-blown remodels, check out what’s bound to make a statement, and what design trends are likely to go into retirement.


Embracing Pops of Color in 2020

If you think you’ve embraced color in your home with a few accent pillows or a piece of statement furniture, it might be time to up the anty. One trend that every designer is certain will become a staple in so many households is more color. Of course, a classic and chic neutral look within a home is a timeless trend, but many designers aren’t shying away from using colors to create both minimal and eccentric vibes in a room.

If you’re tired of a stark white kitchen or living room, this year is the perfect time to make a change. Although eggshell is a timeless color, it’s mostly agreed upon that a tired, flat white can leave a space looking more outdated than chic. So, where should you bring in color? The skies the limit, but the trend seems to be leading in a dramatic direction, meaning an accent wall isn’t your only option. Try out warm tones, jewel tones, and saturated tones to tired cabinets, new tile, or to an entire room.

The New Shabby Chic

Just because designers have mostly left the frilly, farmhouse chic in the past decade (or two), doesn’t mean the farmhouse feel won’t make a return in a fresh way. In fact, many interior designers are already suggesting to take what’s elegant about a farmhouse look while getting rid of its more “stuffy” attributes. What does this mean? Feel free to pull from classic, heritage patterns and add the whimsical touches of a British cottage. The trend points towards creating a truly eclectic space, mixing patterns, and newer items with antiques. Want to add effortless flair in an easy way? Try out classic botanical wall printings, reproduction wallpaper, and more muted primary tones.


Remodeling? Use Sustainable Materials

Aiming for more sustainability in your household might not be a new goal, but sustainability is a trend that won’t be leaving any time soon. Utilizing eco-friendly materials is not just the most ethical choice, but is often the more affordable and customizable option. Planning a kitchen or bathroom remodel for the new year? If you’re unsure of how best to use these materials in modern design elements, talk to your contractor and design team. It’s easy to use eco-friendly items to bring in a natural, warm, and earthy touch to any living space.

The Small Touches Count

Here’s the thing, even the smallest trends of 2020 can have a considerable positive effect on interior design. If you’re looking to bring in a new trend to your home, but you’re on a budget, or simply like to switch things up often, start with the hardware around. Not only is this a great way to breathe some new life into areas of your home, you can’t redesign, but it’s a quick way to increase the value of your home. In 2020, the trend continues to be copper and brass elements. Upgrading hardware to elegant metals brings a new sense of warmth to handles, brackets, and even serving ware. It’s a subtle way to bring a current trend into your home without it being too permanent.
