We’re now in the last month of 2019 and like you, we can hardly believe it either! It seems as though so much has changed in the world of home building and design in recent years, making it an exciting time to build or renovate a home. With so many stylish choices available, it can be a challenge to figure out what works for you and which trends will be able to stand the test of time. After all, you don’t want to spend a lot of money designing your new home only to have your designs be obsolete a year later. Staying current on your home design choices can become a chore if you’re not an expert in the field. The key is to choose designs that are classic and timeless. When it comes to the top design trends for 2020, here’s what to expect in the new year.

At One with Nature

Adding natural elements into the home has become increasingly popular in recent years. A touch of greenery, bamboo shades and the like have been easy to incorporate into spaces, like the great room, kitchen and bath areas, but things are starting to shift. With new builds and renovations, clients are seeking more nature in the space. This can come in the form of wood on the floors and the ceiling, panoramic windows to showcase the outdoors and other earthy elements added into the home, such as metals and stone. Not only does this give the home a more inviting feel, it helps clients increase sustainability by incorporating organic elements into their homes.

Heavy Metal

Metals are expected to be all the rage in 2020, so get ready to have some edgy fun with your design choices. From tin panel backsplashes in the kitchen to exposed piping in the bathrooms, metal is making its way to the top of home design lists everywhere. Metals that we will be seeing more of in the home include:

  • Gold

  • Silver

  • Copper

  • Tin

Mixed metals will be extremely popular in areas, such as the master bath, to add a touch of style to the space. Remember, when you’re building a new home or renovating an existing home, incorporating metal elements needs to be something you plan with your builder, as some of these aspects are more difficult to add in later.

Black & White

Gray tones are quickly making their exit as bold black and white hues are taking the stage. With a stark contrast and take charge look, black and white motifs are expected to take over many kitchen and bath areas in the upcoming year. Clients are choosing to have fun with this bold color style by incorporating patterns, like chevrons and herringbone designs to add an element of sophisticated style to the home. With black and white designs, the possibilities are endless.

A new year is quickly approaching, which means new home designs and trends. We’re excited to embrace these new trends in the homes that we build and remodel, helping to bring style, sophistication and classic design to the home.
