- The Biggest Decor Trends to Expect in 2020-Year after year, what’s trendy and popular in home design changes, which keeps things fresh and interesting. As we gear up for a new decade, it’s time to take a look at what to expect in home decor. Design trends can be helpful for finding inspiration for your next big makeover project or renovation, but that doesn’t mean you have to ditch all of your existing decor. Instead, pick pieces and elements that you can easily incorporate into your home to make the style your own. Wondering which home decor trends are headed out and which are on their way in? We rounded up our predictions and spoke to home designers to find out what to expect in 2020.
- Bar Cabinets -According to Modsy’s Vice President of Style, Alessandra Wood, it’s out with the bar cart and in with the bar cabinet. A bar cabinet gives you even more storage space and you can use nearly any cabinet to create your own version.Though more difficult to move from room to room, a bar cabinet feels more deliberate and creates a gathering space in a dining room or a corner of the living room to serve drinks and mingle with friends and family.
- Cement Vanities -Next year we’ll find more unexpected materials used throughout the home, especially in the bathroom. From cement sinks, like this one from dalydigs, to full-blown cement vanities in the bathroom, cement is becoming a more and more popular material to use in the home. It’s a great material to create a modern but rustic vibe in your space, and a lovely diversion from a standard wood or marble vanity.
- Upgraded Kids’ Rooms-From camouflage to geometric accents, Philippa from little P is expecting nurseries and kids’ rooms to go even bigger and bolder in 2020. A kids’ bedroom is a great place to get creative and channel your inner child in your home decor. While we still love a great hygge-friendly kids’ room, this year we think its time to play with bolder colors and wilder textures (think animal print, camouflage, and faux fur) in the nursery. Engage your children as you pick out furniture and set a theme for the space and you’ll create a perfect escape that fosters your child’s imagination.
- Baskets as Decor -Nothing beats a great basket when it comes to storage throws, dog toys, or really basically anything, but we expect to see more woven pieces as artwork in the coming year. As seen in this lovely living space from styledbydi, baskets can make a great alternative to the typical gallery wall. Check flea markets or vintage shops to find shallow baskets that create a lovely, worldly vibe when hung on the wall. Look for colorful patterns and handwoven pieces that can double as artwork. Bonus points: When you get tired of the look on your walls, you can reuse them as storage around the house.
- Navy Is the New Gray-This is a trend that has been slowly creeping up on us, but it’s finally arrived with a bang. Navy itself isn’t new, but according to Mary Maydan, principal and founder of Maydan Architects, it’s starting to replace neutrals like gray and beige in residential spaces. We expect to see bolder, darker colors used in place of neutrals in the home in 2020. Colors such as navy or hunter green can offer a sense of calm and tranquility, while still feeling traditional enough to use in dining rooms or living areas.
- The Comeback of the Formal Dining Room-Open floor plans have been big for years now, but expect to see more and more homeowners embrace the formal dining room this year. A formal dining room doesn’t have to be completely closed off from the rest of the house, but it should feel purposeful and delineated, like this one from ourtxnest. A true formal dining space gives you a space to entertain that feels removed from the other areas in the home and helps encourage family mealtime.
