The New Year has kicked off and it’s time to start thinking about ways to make 2020 the best year ever. Out with the old, in with new, as they say. One way to imbue your life with the essence of the new is to keep up with home decor trends. We chose some of the most buzzed-about design and decorating innovations from around the Internet to bring you a short list of trends to incorporate into your own special style.
From Bathrooms to Spa Rooms
Recent years have seen a movement of bringing the relaxation of a spa into your own house. For 2020, introduce spa-like implements into your master bathroom for a spacious, calming focus area. Some of the leaders in home decor predict a trend of benches, stools, and other sitting areas in bathrooms for the new year. Alternatively, you can use these “places to sit” as additional storage surfaces for your daily skincare or cosmetics.
Mixing new and old elements in your living spaces is a hot trend. Experts predict that 2020 will be a year in which we come to terms with how our homes tell the stories of our lives and the lives of our families. Showcase your books in your livingroom along with souvenirs from trips, fresh-off-the-floor sofas, and antique furniture for an eclectic, stylish fingerprint on your home.
Some homeowners may shudder at this one, but waves are being made in the design world regarding rooms that feature a single print from floor to ceiling. Imagine wallpaper matching the print on your couches and chairs, with vases that bear the same image. It is a bold, dramatic effect that may not be for everyone, but it can inspire true excitement in the homes of the courageous.
Shun the Kitchen-Area Dining Room
Traditional kitchen tables are going by the wayside as homeowners and decor specialists opt for dedicated dining rooms with some new tweaks. Instead of wooden chairs, try out upholstered options. Instead of the high tables popular throughout the 2010’s, many experts think we can expect to see lowered tables with more of an emphasis on coziness and connection with family and friends than on formality.
