Published on: January 23rd, 2020 | Written by Jimmy Vercellino

The year 2020 is all about bringing fresh new ideas to your living space. You may need to freshen up the overall design scheme of your new house.

Or, you may just be ready to remodel and update your current home to increase its value.

These are the top 10 interior design trends that we are already seeing pop up, and they can serve as inspiration for getting your house ready for the upcoming year.

Top 10 Interior Design Trends

1. Look for Hidden Kitchen Features

The open kitchen concept is great for socializing. You’ll still find that builders are opting for this popular design plan. However, they’ve also started adding elements that disguise the clutter.

During your home tours, look for kitchens with slide-out counters and false cabinet doors that drop down to hide unsightly appliances when they are not in use.

2. Swap Fresh for Dried Floral Bouquets

The focus this year is on finding more time to do things that you enjoy. Fresh flowers are beautiful, but they take a lot of work.

Dried floral bouquets are back in style. We love how great this trend works with home staging since they retain their appearance and are allergy-friendly.

3. Choose Classic Blue

Neutral tones are still in style, but designers are moving toward other hues to modernize color schemes. Gray retained its reign as the most popular color last year.

Now, blue has taken first place, and a classic shade of this color works in any room.

4. Mix In Old and New

The minimalist look has lost its luster for living spaces. Now, you can feel free to turn your living room into a cozy space that shows off your personality.

Try bringing in a vintage armchair that you can surround with a shelf full of your favorite books or souvenirs from your last vacation.

Keep in mind that this design trend may not work if you are staging a house to sell, but it can give you the inspiration to find your perfect forever home to fill with conversation pieces.

5. Go All Out With Prints

Wallpaper made its way back into style during the past few years. In 2020, it is meant to be used for more than just a statement wall.

Whether you love floral or geometric prints, try pulling the look from your walls to your furniture and other pieces of decor.

6. Try Two Toned Kitchen Cabinets

A stark white kitchen is no longer in. Two-toned kitchen cabinets create a more interesting effect. You can go for a full upgrade by using a light color for the lower cabinets and a darker one up top.

You can also make a minor change by swapping out the hardware to a darker or lighter shade.

7. Choose Sustainable Materials

The move toward more eco-friendly homes continues, and buyers are looking for homes that fit their lifestyle views.

Using sustainable materials for countertops, cabinets and floors shows that you care just as much about the environment as you do your home.

8. Round Out Your Furniture

Those sleek, clean lines are now out of fashion. This year’s look is softer, and you’ll find couches in curved shapes that invite people to relax and move closer together to chat.

9. Give a Guest Bathroom Personality

Bathrooms are now being viewed as a place to show off your creativity without clashing with the rest of your house. Designers are replacing light neutral shades with bold and bright wallpaper, statement rugs and unique lighting that brings out a bit of your fun side.

10. Create a Social Space

People are choosing to stay in more, and this is causing designers to utilize every space. That small room that is too tiny for a bedroom may be the perfect cocktail lounge with the addition of a bar cart and couch.

Interior design is all about creating a home that feels as good as it looks. Remember that there are home loans available that can help you renovate a new home before move-in or remodel your current home. If you’re ready to upgrade the design of your home to add value and make every moment more enjoyable, give us a call about applying for a home equity loan.
