Home Trends: IN and OUT in 2020

Liz Heller Home Remodeling , Real Estate Leave a Comment

We all know of at least one interior home trend that makes us cringe. For some, it may be the wood paneling epidemic of the late 20th century, and for others it may be the classic grey striped bedding that almost every young bachelor has. We have gathered a few trends on both sides of the spectrum: some we absolutely love, and some we think may need to be left in the 2010’s. Here is your ultimate guide to a trendy 2020 interior!

IN: BRIGHT MONOCHROMATIC SPACES

No longer do we desire the pale and neutral monochrome palettes. In 2020, we are getting bolder and brighter! Popular colors for the monochrome look include Kelly Green and Cobalt Blue. These are sure to turn your average space into a stunner!

OUT: GREY ON GREY

We are no longer loving the countless shades of grey color palette that we have seen throughout the 2010’s. This trend had a good run, but it’s time to turn to warmer tones that will feel more comfortable and inviting.

IN: MIXING VINTAGE AND MODERN DECOR

Modern and Vintage decor is the mashup we never knew we needed! Combining the two creates a sense of elegance that has yet to be explored in the interior design world. Whether this collaboration is with furniture or knick knacks, it is sure to add a touch of spice into your interior.

OUT: TAPESTRIES IN BEDROOMS

While this trend was very popular for a number of years, especially among young women, covering your walls with fabric has more trendy alternatives. If your non-cultural tapestry is getting a bit old, we suggest trying an accent wall with a removable wallpaper that fits your style!

IN: DARK PAINTED DOORS

White doors are a thing of the past! Dark painted doors add a pop of color and a wow factor to any room! The most popular colors include black, navy blue, and midnight green. We can’t get enough!

OUT: OPEN SHELVES IN THE KITCHEN

While open shelving can have an aesthetic appeal at first, they are not practical. Let’s face it, no one’s dishes and pantry goods are going to look beautiful all the time. That’s okay! We can have gorgeous kitchen cabinets without the mess shown to the world.

IN: INDOOR PLANTS

If you are wondering how to spice up your space without buying new furniture or doing an expensive remodel, a great way to freshen up is to add some greenery! Many of us struggle to keep plants alive, so faux plants are a great alternative.

OUT: MIRRORED FURNITURE

While mirrored furniture had a moment for a few years, the practicality has not held up. In theory, a mirrored dresser or table sounds chic. But, keeping it clean is nothing short of a nightmare. There are plenty of gorgeous pieces of furniture surpassing mirrored items on the trendy scale. So, save yourself the time and energy, and invest in an alternative.

IN: RATTAN AND WICKER FURNITURE

We are loving the touch of outdoor living being added the the interior design world. Rattan and wicker used to be exclusively outdoor materials. But in 2020, we are seeing more and more of these pieces being used artfully indoors. We cannot get enough of this earthy trend.

OUT: CONCRETE FLOORS

Let’s be honest, nothing about a concrete floor says “warm and inviting.” In your home, you should feel safe and comfortable. Perhaps a warm toned hardwood floor or even a new carpeted floor is your best bet to achieve this. We can save the concrete for industrial complexes.

We hope you enjoyed your guide to a trendy 2020 interior! Don’t worry if your space doesn’t match these criteria; at the end of the day, your home should be exactly how you love it! It should fit you and your family, regardless of the trends!
