The start of a new year means new interior design and home improvement trends will begin to emerge in homes around the country. If you are considering updating your home or you want to add a refreshing, new look before you sell, you should know what styles are “in” and which ones you want to avoid. Here are four home improvement trends you should look for in 2020.
1. Large Bathrooms with Seating Areas
In the new year, experts predict you will begin to see bathrooms with seating areas. Individuals want bathrooms with space to place small chairs, stools, or even couches to relax or to sit while getting ready each morning. Self-care and wellness are important to individuals of all ages and these large bathrooms with seating areas provide a spa-like experience every day.
2. Smart Kitchen Technology
Smart home devices offer many benefits but this year, expect to see even more of them. Everything from a wi-fi-enabled microwave to a smart fridge are excellent options for your kitchen. This not only makes daily tasks such as cooking much easier but it makes it more convenient and easier as well.
In the past, you would see a lot of the same trends — white kitchens, farmhouse décor, perfection in all of your living spaces, etc. In 2020, experts predict that customisation is going to take off in home improvement. Homeowners will begin to use wild and crazy wallpaper in their bathroom areas, choose unique colours for their kitchen sink, and more. You may begin to see unique light fixtures and flooring colours that you haven’t seen before. Many homeowners will likely pay extra to have various features in their home that are fully customised.
4. More Colour in the Kitchen
In 2019, white kitchens were an extremely popular design. Potential buyers were also interested in these white spaces. In 2020, white kitchens are expected to continue in popularity but a little colour will probably make an appearance. It is predicted that in 2020, one common trend is to add a little more colour to these spaces such as light greys, blues, creams, etc. You will see these colours on walls, cabinets, and accessories such as towels, rugs, dishware, etc. The year 2020 is the start of a new decade and it will bring many colour options to help spruce up your home.
