2020 Home Design Trends

It’s not only a new year but a new decade. And what the months and years ahead will bring is anyone’s guess. One thing is for sure, though: The modern home and how people choose to live in it will constantly be changing.

The colour trends

Beige, stone, soft eucalypt greens and earthy browns will be strong interior colours in 2020, following their popularity this year. They’re hues found in natural materials such as sisal, jute, hem; the colours of unbleached, undyed wool, natural clay colours, natural stone.

Kitchens Designed for The Details

Last decade we saw sinks installed in islands, open plan kitchen-dining, and a rise in outdoor kitchens. 2020 renovation trends are building on the ideas of yesteryear with:

  • Multipurpose islands merging preparation, presentation and casual dining
  • Refaced cabinets championed by wood tones and a healthy dose of calming blue
  • Feature lighting to brighten up the space
  • Natural materials like wooden beams and indoor plants to celebrate Australia’s natural splendour
  • Bright, bold splashbacks replacing plain white or glass

Terrazzo is Trending

Terrazzo is not new; in fact, it’s been around since the early 18th century. But as home renovations move away from minimalism to embrace a kind of manicured vibrance, terrazzo is back in a big way. Colours and patterns are big and bold, perfect for use in kitchen benchtops, splashbacks, bathrooms, and feature tiles.

Bringing Nature Indoors

Most people don’t get enough nature in their day, so bringing it inside helps to keep us healthy and happy. Earthy tones, raw timber beams, oversized houseplants, an abundance of natural light: these are all part of the 2020 renovation trend labelled as biophilic design. Home renovations are introducing biomaterials in place of composites and plastics for places that are more pleasant to look at and more sustainable to live in.

A shower. A sink. A toilet. What’s so exciting about that? Time to flush that thought away because in 2020 the bathroom is fast becoming the best room. Black is the new black: Black is bold. Black is better. Fixtures like lights, shelving and mirror frames are all coming in this colour. When popping off white subway tile (hey, there’s that popular pick again!), it really makes a statement.
