Top Home Interior Design Trends For 2020

With a new decade comes a new set of home interior design trends

Home interior design is always evolving. Just like fashion, it goes through cycles, trends and shifting tides of popularity.

Heralding in the new decade means welcoming new home interior design trends into your living space. The ones that we have seen so far in 2020 are quite impressive, and we think you’ll like them, too.

A shift towards sustainability

Saving the planet has become a priority to many, and it’s easy to find this passionately reflected in people’s homes.

With a shift towards sustainability comes an increasing demand for recycled timbers and repurposed materials. It also sees more and more homeowners investing in high quality furniture and statement pieces that will last for years to come.

Bringing the outside in

Plants are the new black. They don’t just look good, but they make us feel good, too. Transforming our homes into beautiful, luscious green jungles has been proven to boost mood, productivity and creativity, and also to rid your air of toxins.

Alongside sustainability comes the eco-friendly practice of growing your own plants. Bringing the calm serenity of nature into your home means covering the walls and surfaces with life-giving (and Instagram-ready) indoor plants.

Modern meets traditional

This is the age of modernity, and with it comes a nod to the traditional style that once breathed the very essence into your grandparents’ homes.

Modern rooms furnished with vintage pieces show a true appreciation for the old and – when done right – their ability to fit seamlessly in with the new.

Storytelling pieces

In the storytelling age of the ever-expanding digital landscape, people are beginning to understand the power of words and how a story can connect those who may not have been connected before.

The same can be said for your home and the pieces displayed within it. Cultural works like paintings, tapestries or other tasteful pieces can bring a room together and tell a historical story, all at the same time.

The evolution of the kitchen

The kitchen is becoming one of two things, depending on the person – either a place we conceal, or a place we reveal.

Concealed kitchens are growing increasingly more popular as fridges, dishwashers, pantries, ovens and even sinks have begun to disappear into trick cupboards and stylishly hidden spaces.

On the other end of the spectrum are those introducing a homely flair to their kitchens, decorating with old bottles, antique vases and just a little more personality than they had before.

Economic use of space

Rather than filling up an extra crawl space with cupboards or shoe racks, we are actively utilising those leftover areas in the most economic ways possible.

From study nooks to meditation spaces and everything in between, every inch of our homes are now being acknowledged for what they are – places with the potential to offer more and do more.

Redefine your space and embrace these distinctive trends in your home

Home interior design in 2020 is trending and we are pretty excited about it. With so many creative, environmentally friendly and unique ways to reinvent your living space, it’s time to get started.

When redecorating your home, research trends that inspire you and remember to invest in quality materials that last (including recycled ones!). The planet will love you for it, and so will your new, bespoke space!
