2020 Vision: Here's What's Happening in Interior Design This Year
Are you wondering what's happening in interior design this year? If that's the case, we've
got your back. Click here to learn more today!
95% of all buildings in the United States are more than a decade old. Is your home in need
of a serious remodel or renovation?
As we enter a new decade, people are upgrading their homes using eco-friendly interior design methods. Using sustainable building materials and installing larger windows are
two of the many trends we see this year.
Read on to learn more about what's happening in interior design in 2020.
Using Sustainable Materials
Interior design, as a whole, is embracing more sustainable materials.
Sustainability is huge, but it doesn't mean you're giving up on luxury. Architects have
found surprising ways to use recycled or reclaimed materials when building structures
or redesigning rooms in your home.
There are so many benefits of making eco-conscious interior design choices. It saves you money, it's better for the environment, and it adds an element of warmth to your space.
Kitchen Design: Out With the Old
The kitchen design is breaking the mold in 2020. Traditional, pure white kitchens are
being tossed out, and two-toned kitchens, like black and white, are in.
It's all about the statement pieces in the kitchen. Think statement tiles instead of white subway tile and dark-tone doors and trim instead of traditional white.
Another modern kitchen trend is the rise in popularity of the quartz countertop.
Quartz is durable and resembles marble, so much so that it's often hard to tell the
difference between the two.
In addition to the use of more color, kitchen furniture is also getting an update.
Conventional and uncomfortable dining tables and chairs are out, and upholstered, inviting dining room sets are in.
Fun Bathroom Design
The bathroom is the perfect place to try out some exciting designs of the new decade. Just like kitchens, white and neutral bathrooms are out of style.
Bathroom walls are being updated with fun, patterned wallpapers to create a wow factor. If the wallpaper isn't your thing, modern wood paneling is another one of the hottest new trends for bathroom walls.
Interior Design Trend: Mixing the Old With the New
People are starting to mix old and new elements to reflect their personalities in their homes. Incorporating things like knickknacks purchased on vacation with their modern interior design spaces is on the rise.
There is also a rise in seeing antiques mixed in with more modern elements.
Large and Energy-Efficient Windows
Natural light has been on-trend for a while, and in the next decade,
it's only getting more popular.
North-facing, full-length windows bring light and warmth to space and save the
homeowner money. Installing large windows also goes along with the eco-friendly
design that's on-trend.
Easy-to-Install Light Fixtures
Many people may have envisioned a stylish wall sconce above their nightstand or on
their newly installed funky wallpaper in their bathroom.
In past years, it was not practical to hard-wire a sconce on a whim in a home
that's continuously being redecorated.
Now, there are wall sconces, and other light fixtures can plug right into an outlet.
