Interior decorating can’t be boring. The new home trends this year push the limits when it comes to a unique style. Here are a few things you’ll see everywhere in home renovations in 2020.
The biggest change in home decor the past few years is the switch from minimalism to maximalism. This means the trends now are leaning towards more colors, more bold statements, and more bang. You don’t need to clutter your home to get this look either. It’s all about choosing the right things that make your home vibrant and pop with character. Big pieces of art overshadow the little statement pieces in the past. Big furniture with lots of character brings more life to each room. Go big or go home, literally.
Homes don’t have to have a rustic feel to install barn doors. Barn doors come in all sorts of styles and colors so you don’t have to stick to a specific feel. They’re perfect because this type of door doesn’t take up much room. It also slides which is just really fun. You can liven up a room and give it a totally different feel with a barn door.
Just when you think you have rid of all the wallpaper from the 1980s, it comes back with a bang. This wallpaper trend isn’t your grandmother’s floral wallpaper. This wallpaper is all about vibrant, bold statements. It’s more about small spaces instead of taking over entire rooms. If you use too bold of wallpaper on an entire wall, the room may feel too small. It’s about using it in places like behind your headboard as a statement of color. Textured wallpaper boosts the decoration to another level.
It’s all about light this year. Hanging fixtures are a trendy way to combine lighting with style. Pendant lamps and chandeliers are a great way to add a bit of elegance and functionality to a room. Using natural light in every way possible is a big trend as well. If you can save energy while still bringing in light, you win on both ends.
The minimalist trend of small windows without much lighting is thrown out the actual window. People love large windows that offer lots of natural lighting. Big windows take over, making each area of the home seem a little more spacious, too. Windows are inviting so space and light seem to make the home a little more cheery for the owners. You don’t need to cover them with curtains, but if you do, go with big patterns instead of small details.
Appliances full of color don’t mean the avocado green refrigerator of the 1970s. This means bold color in the kitchen makes its mark. Combine colored appliances with a neutral palette in the kitchen for a perfect look. It’s a unique style different than most other rooms. As long as the colors don’t fight with one another, you can pick almost any color for your appliances. A kitchen is a place where the magic of food comes together, so have a little fun with it.
Mix and Match
Gone are the days where everything in your living area was perfectly matched. You can now pick up a sofa from one place and a side table at another place, and you will be perfectly fine. Mixing and matching colors and styles is a fun trend for any home. You can keep some of your favorite old pieces and buy newer ones that inspire you all for the same room. Don’t let the colors fight against one another. Pick a pattern or a few colors, then go for it.
Carpeting is making a comeback in a big way. From animal print to abstract patterns, any and all carpeting is trending in home decor. The good news is that you can go as neutral as you wish. The even better news is that carpet is made more durable than ever before so homeowners don’t have to worry about getting new carpets as often. The wish for green flooring to help save the environment is also at the highest demand so there’s all-natural carpeting for your home, too.
Go ahead, have fun. Create and decorate the way you want. When all is said and done, the best style is your own.
