Home renovations can be an exciting but stressful undertaking. If you’re looking to redesign your home, it can be tricky knowing where to start.
With so many new trends in today’s world, it can be overwhelming to choose the right design elements for your home. Read on to learn about some helpful 2020 interior design trends for your home.
A Touch of Simplicity
A recent trend that will likely continue in 2020 is a minimalist approach to interior decor. A minimalist approach is one that has very little clutter and usually relies on a few stand out pieces to decorate a space.
In cities where space is precious, a simple but refined design can make a space feel spacious but sophisticated.
People who sell their homes often take a minimalist approach when showing the home in an effort to make the space feel more neutral.
With a minimalist approach, it’s easier to build and mix and match pieces for when you want to change up the scenery.
When the seasons change, it’s also nicer to add a few pieces to a minimalist space to make it feel homier.
A Neutral Color Palette
Along with the minimalist decor, a complementary color palette can make a space feel sophisticated. Earth tones and neutrals like black, grays, browns, and beiges can create a beautiful canvas.
Pops of color can come from little accents like table accessories, lamps, and shelf decor. In the new decade, it seems like there will be less contrast between colors and lighter, calmer feeling colors like pastels.
Though in recent years we saw the trend of colder, more clinical colors like whites and greys, warmer colors will make more of an appearance. Warmer shades of brick and wood will bring back the feeling of tradition and comfort.
Earlier in the decade, it was trendy to go for an all-white look. Kitchen countertops, floors, and walls that were all white were desirable. But as we turn to a new decade, we’ll start to see a decline in this sort of design.
Countertops and kitchen islands will likely feature darker marbles or woods for a more welcoming environment.
It’s All About the Accents
One of the things we will see the most in conjunction with neutral spaces is an abundance of vintage accents. Ranging from light fixtures to doorknobs, adding a hint of vintage and unique pieces to a neutral home can make it feel quite unique.
Years ago, it was trendy to feature many distinctive pieces in one room. However, the trends are shifting to feature one or two rare and unusual pieces that will tie a room together.
These can include furniture pieces like a dresser, a reading chair, or even a nightstand. Walnut is making a comeback and mid-century pieces like bed frames and bookshelves are likely to be seen more in 2020.
Aged wood is also making a grand comeback to mirror a vintage feel. We may start to see some countertops and dining tables feature aged wood, which makes them feel like they have a story behind them.
Blankets and cozy throws are also trending. They can make a couch or nook area feel snug and comfortable.
A Variety of Wall Art
Though we will probably see a mostly minimalist approach to wall decor, it’s likely that some wall art will trend in 2020.
Wallpaper is one of those things that can be hit or miss, but we will likely see it make an appearance in the coming year. Floral wallpapers will make a comeback and they pair quite nicely with a simple space, surprisingly.
With technology allowing for beautiful quality photography, it’s likely that we’ll see wall art in the form of visual and portrait photographs as well.
If you’ve been blocking sunlight access to any of your home’s rooms, it’s time to open up the curtains. Natural light is a desirable design trick to making a space feel more inviting.
Even with the right decor, a room can fall flat without the right kind of feel. Natural sunlight provides a welcoming atmosphere for you and your guests.
If you’re redesigning your interiors to potentially sell your house, homebuyers will be interested in your home’s natural light available.
A Bit of Outside on the Inside
Along with bright color pops of accents and decor, plants will be big in 2020. Plants have been scientifically proven to lower your blood pressure and improve your general well-being, so it’s no secret people are decorating more with plants.
Easy to care for plants like spider plants, snake plants, and even fig trees are easy additions to making a space feel more interesting and natural.
Plants can say a lot about you as a person, and incorporating some green into your home can reflect your personality. Some trends we’re continuing to see are air plants, succulents, and hanging plants.
With busy schedules, these types of plants are low maintenance and typically require little sunlight to stay alive.
In addition to plants, flowers can also make a space feel quite welcoming. They can provide a more natural way of adding a color pop to a room.
