The new year is a wonderful time to add a refreshing and innovative look to any area of your home. There are dozens of trends that you will find in properties across Canada. Some of these trends are definitely “in” while others need some updating. Here are four interior design trends that you can expect to see in 2020.
In the past, we have seen many colours adorn homes such as green and purple hues. In the new year, one colour that will be making a big impact on interior design is blue. This colour provides a calming effect and gives rooms a bold, yet elegant look. The classic blue colour is expected to be a popular paint option and will be found on fabrics and furniture such as couches, bedspreads, rugs, etc.
2. Dark Accent Colours
Dark accent colours are anticipated to be big in 2020. For example, dark trim around a room or an interior door painted a dark, bold colour can add some dimension and contrast to a space. If you don’t want to be as bold with your colour choices, use these darker colours for items such as frames around your mirrors or family portraits, your light fixtures, or even on your dining room table.
3. Statement Bathrooms
In the past, you would see many bathrooms designed with perfection in mind. This space would typically be white in appearance and have very little contrast and texture. Now that style is going out and fun and unique styles are coming in. The bathroom is a great place to add fun wallpaper and unique wall art. Choose a statement sink and distinctive light fixtures as well. A customized mirror can also become a standout piece in your bathroom and an immediate focal point.
Bring the outdoors inside with lots of greenery. Incorporating real houseplants throughout your home is not only trendy, but it also offers many benefits as well. A few health benefits to indoor houseplants include:
- Improves the air quality in your home
- Boosts your mood
- Can increase your creativity
- Reduces your stress levels
- Improves your productivity
If you are hesitant to implement houseplants throughout your home, don’t be. There are many plants available that are easy to care for and quite forgiving. A few you may consider for your home include pothos, bromeliads, snake plants, rubber plants, and aloe.
