Six home decor trends to watch out for in 2020
The new year is quickly approaching, and it makes us wonder which home décor trends will be on top in 2020. This past year, we've enjoyed floral fabrics, curved sofas and gallery walls, but we're ready for an exciting change.
We understand that searching for the hottest decor trends can be time-consuming and contradictory at times. We’ve streamlined the process and collected our favourite ways to update your home in 2020. The following six tips feature exciting trends for the coming year, which all lean towards self-expression, functionality and sustainability.
Join us as we explore the best home décor trends of 2020.
1. Textured wall décor will give you the feels.
Home décor is taking a textured turn in 2020. From paints to hanging ornamentation, textured forms of wall decoration are heading to the forefront of design. Three-dimensional pieces add dynamic layers to any room and provide a handmade look. Customize your walls with embellishments like macramé hangings and finishes like Venetian plaster.
2. Classicism is coming back to the future.
Get your favourite antique Roman bust out of storage and prepare to incorporate classic touches into your home’s décor this coming year. Details featuring the linear Greek key or meander pattern are likely to make a resurgence in the new year. Choose to turn your space into an antique dream or weave classic themes into your décor. Easily achieve this trend by adding one or two statement pieces to your current setting.
3. Share your inner workings with open front shelving.
The days of closed cabinet and pantry doors are gone! Try open front shelving in your kitchen to keep all of your daily items easily accessible. Imagine getting your hands dirty while cooking and suddenly needing a spice from your cupboard. You’ll never make a mess of your cabinet door handles again with open front shelves! Use this trend as an opportunity to display your favourite dishware and see your stunning pieces every day. We often keep precious dishes locked up to keep them safe. Choose open front shelving to see your fine China as often as you’d like. Eliminating one or more sections of cabinetry and opting for open shelves also gives the illusion of a more spacious environment.
4. Let the colours of 2020 inspire your home decor.
Design is likely to be influenced by the colours of 2020, like Pantone's Classic Blue, Benjamin Moore's First Light and Behr's Back to Nature. Hues of bold blue, soft pink and earthy green will make their way into design palettes in the new year, which means lots of opportunities to incorporate them into your home. Get creative by choosing splashes of these colours in pieces of furniture and area rugs.
5. It’s time for your indoor garden room.
In 2019, the search term “garden room” went up 104% on Pinterest. Plants have several benefits, therefore it’s not hard to imagine why people are investigating ways to use them into their home décor. Adding real plants to your indoor environment purifies the air, presents a pleasant aroma and incorporates a new level of texture. Psychology Today also notes that plants are a natural mood booster. According to research, greenery reduces stress and rejuvenates our mental processing power.
6. Rattan and wicker furniture isn’t just for the cottage anymore!
The 1970s will make a triumphant return in the form of caned furniture in 2020. Caning is a method of weaving found in furniture pieces made with rattan cane or rattan peel. This kind of furniture has an open pattern, which makes it perfect for a room craving light and airy components. Caned chairs, bed frames and cabinet doors give a calming vacation-vibe and add a sense of relaxation to your environment.
