With 2020 rolling in a new decade. We have a whole new era of luxury real estate and interior design trends to follow.
Interior design trends change constantly.
For the past decade, minimalism was extremely popular. Less was more.
Going into the 20’s, interior design experts are pointing to a rise of uniqueness rather than simplicity.
Of course, unique is subjective to the person designing the project.
In my brain this makes me wonder if that constitutes as a design trend if everyone is supposed to do their own thing.
But regardless, I’ve compiled a list of four interior design trends that are common now and should span for the rest of 2020.
What They Mean by Unique
What designers are trying to say is that interior design will reflect the personality of the homeowner.
Instead of most homes featuring minimal design and the eerie lack of clutter, design will be more authentic and tell a story about who that person is.
Colors will become less organized and more potent, placed anywhere it seems fit. Clutter will be more welcomed since humans are naturally unorganized.
Art will be more deliberate to reflect, once again, the personality of that person.
So, if you want to keep with the times this year. Literally do whatever you want.
That should be easy.
Ecologically Conscious Interior Design
With the rise of environmental politics in the last few decades, society has become more aware of their ecological footprints.
This leads to homeowners taking a look at the impact they make with their homes.
The first thing you could do is upgrade to a smart home. I wrote an article about that here.
Then, design your home for optimum energy efficiency.
Use carpets, which retain 10% of the home’s heat and improves air quality.
Use lighter colors to reflects more light, thus reducing the need to turn on the lights.
Also, consider the lifespan of the products you buy to design your home.
It’s easy to replace old products with new ones when the trends change.
But, with this new era of uniqueness, you can take advantage of long lifespans.
High Contrast Colors
Black and white will always be a timeless and sleek color pattern. It’s hard to go wrong with it.
Use black trims on a white wall and the space vibrantly pops with personality. It also helps advance a theme you’re looking for, such as art deco.
While minimalism is fading, don’t count out classic timeless colors.
Most rugs are squared or circular.
Do they have to be?
According to interior designers, they don’t.
To go along with the uniqueness movement. Designers are emphasizing rugs that bring solace and reflect your personality.
Whether you choose a special color or eccentric shape, don’t count out the impact a rug can make to your home design.
The best thing about rugs is that they can fit into any room, giving you full flexibility and importation.
Be it your living room, kitchen, bathroom, or den. A rug is the easiest accessory to add.
2020 Interior Design: Be Bold
2020 and the new decade will be about boldness, which I think is a better word for unique.
So, if you’re thinking about changing up the look this year. Go ahead and do what you want.
No one can say you’re “not with the times”.
