In every industry, there are cycles. The home interior design industry is no different. I’m pretty sure we all well aware of design cycles that we hope stay gone… shag carpet on the walls, anyone?
For 2020, interior designers bring forth ideas that will change the modern home, at least for the next decade. The previous trends have run their course, and now we’re going to see a much-needed evolutionary phase begin. But what is out and what is in? Take a look at the following trends and see if you agree.
The oversized handles of doors that we have become accustomed to are on their way out. Wave goodbye and bon voyage to large pulls in the kitchen. If your fridge has very long and thick handles, or if your doors have rather pronounced dense metal handles, then it’s time to make the switch. The smaller the handle, the more dainty and more graceful the home will look.
Floral patterns have been waiting in the wings for a very long time. However, you may be thinking that that is not the case, and floral patterns have always been in your home. But we’re not talking about floral cushions or seats. Floral wallpaper is making a comeback. Last seen in classic homes in the Victorian and Georgian era, now floral wallpaper is a great choice for both first and second floors.
When you look at the modern home, you see the most popular colors are all cold. White, grey, black, and shades of icy blue are scattered across the home. But now, earth tones are going to be ruling the roost. The yellows, oranges, and reds of the groovy home design period will be seen everywhere once again. They will especially go back to being the dominant color palette in the living room and kitchen.
The modern home has become accustomed to being adventurous in staircase designs. However, they have mostly ventured into the material choices but not in the shape. However, this architect in surrey has a lot of experience in designing spiral staircases and has some stunning designs for your inspiration. They have made homes for some of the most brilliant urban properties in London and the surrounding areas. Take a look at their case studies to get a better vibe of what you could have.
Leather is well and truly out. Leather sofas are not going to be seen in any modern plush home for the next 5-10 years. Fabric has made a lot of advances, with Merino wool and velvet being the two top choices for sofa fabric covering.
Sometimes you have to stick to your guns when it comes to interior design. Other times, you have to wake up and smell the coffee. These are some of the ins and outs of interior design style that will dominate the next decade, so start experimenting!
