What are Home Trends for 2020?
When 2019 rolled around we started to see the introduction of more earthy tones, sustainable design elements along with ethnic and tribal patters but what’s going to start trending in 2020? Take a review of 2019 home trends before diving into what’s happening in home décor for 2020.
Earthy Tones Staying Around
Max Wilker, style director at Better Homes and Gardens told Inman that he expects the “back to nature” trend to continue, saying it’s comforting and easy to work with. Brush up on the color trends from a year ago to see what else might stick around.
Wilker also enjoys kitchen islands with an open design so people can talk to each other versus kitchen islands where people can just speak to the person next to them. Get some ideas for a kitchen island remodel from one of these 12 gorgeous kitchen islands.
Minimalism is expected to continue to trend into 2020, but it’s a minimalism with a flair of personality that will thrive. That means a lot of clean lines and neutral colors with pockets of color. The personal touch is seen in peoples’ homes when they display things that hold special meaning in their life like a trinket from a trip. This man tried minimalism and saved $150,000 in a little more than 10 years.
As people grow more concerned about the environment, they have turned toward sustainable design with their interior décor. That means more use of bamboo, furniture made from recycled materials and repurposed items. Speaking of repurposed items, these 80 household items are perfect for repurposing.
Integrated Living Spaces
Open-concept homes remain a lightning rod for interior design with strong opinions on either side. Here’s part of the reason while people despise open-concept homes. But some people love them because they allow for more socialization and the kitchen is often the center of activity in the house. Expect the trend to remain into 2020.
Spanish- and Portuguese-inspired tile is making a major statement in kitchens and baths on Pinterest boards. This unexpected black-and-white pattern brings a modern element into the design.
