With new interior design trends setting in for 2020, there are many ideas and options out there to make a difference to the appearance of your home. In this article we will talk you through our top 5 interior design trends for 2020, so you can incorporate the best design ideas in your property. Helen Coulston also shares regular tips, tricks, and interior design inspiration. So, whether your kitchen could do with a refresh, you are looking to transform the appearance of your living room, or you are property sourcing and looking for interior design ideas for your new investments, take on these new trends for 2020.

Grey tones have been appreciated in home décor for a long time, however this year we are swapping out the use of grey for navy blue. Pantone has named blue as their colour of the year for 2020 so we expect to see the colour used a lot more in interior design. A classic navy blue colour offers a clean and elegant look to any room, which is simple to incorporate into the rooms of your home. As a versatile and sophisticated colour, this classic blue colour can be used in both modern and traditional homes. Whether you are just painting parts of your property like kitchen islands or whole rooms, navy blue can give your rooms a new lease of life.

The Use of Sustainable Materials

In life in general sustainability has become more and more important, so we are now trying to be more eco-friendly with everything we do. This has led to the use of sustainable materials in our homes being one of the top interior design trends for this year. People are now becoming more knowledgeable about sustainability which has led to purchases being backed up by ecologically conscious decisions. This behaviour has been reflected in interior design as we are using more sustainable materials in our properties. Furniture made from recycled materials and rugs made from local sustainably sourced materials are likely to be seen morein homes this year to follow this trend.

Lots of Different Textures

This trend started towards the end of 2019, with a high emphasis set to be on using different textures in our home again in 2020. Adding more textures to your home will add more interest to your rooms in the same way as it does when adding more colours. You can try this by layering up different textures in the same or similar colours to create a great visual effect in your home. This trend is ideal if you need to find a way to decorate your rooms without using too many different colours. The ideal way to implement this trend is by pairing up different textures with blankets and cushions in your living room or add in even more texture by using plants and prints.

Vintage and Traditional Detailing

Vintage and traditional detailing is set to make a comeback this year as one of the top interior design trends of 2020. The use of vintage accents in our home such as spindles and spooled legs will appear a lot more in home décor this year. Design features from the 1800s and 1900s will be making an appearance on statement pieces to add an element of class to your rooms. However, we expect that homes will not be vintage all over, with designers only incorporating vintage and traditional detailing on a small number of décor products as the main features of rooms. 

Non-White Kitchens

In the last ten years, white kitchens have been massively popular, as this was a big design trend throughout the 2010s. However, in 2020 the all-white kitchen trend is set to switch with more designers now opting to add more colour and character to kitchens. You can now expect kitchen spaces to go beyond the classic white colour, with more natural wood being used for cabinets and shelves and granite island tops making a comeback. This will add a more visually appealing image than your regular all-white kitchen, creating more brightness. So, don’t restrict yourself with the classic white kitchen this year.
