We have officially completed a decade, and the “twenty-twenties” are here! While some may be eager to get started on their personal new year resolutions, the home can be a great place for design improvements and style updates. If you are one to partake in everything trending, you may be interested in learning the hottest products for 2020. In this series, we will take a look at different trends and products that design experts foresee homeowners incorporating. Let’s get started!
Design Trends & Hot Products
A Place to Be Formal
In 2020, design experts predict a shift from casual dining to a more formal experience. For instance, if you have a dining room that has gone unused for quite some time, 2020 is the year for you to begin using it. Designers predict the formal dining area to be more of a statement piece rather than an outdated, unused space. In fact, they foresee homeowners incorporating noteworthy pieces like beautiful chandeliers, intriguing patterns, stunning colors, and unique artwork.
A Spa-Like Retreat
When you think of your current bathroom setup, you may be missing some spa-like elements that help make it a relaxing oasis. For instance, take a look around and see if you have a place to sit (the toilet does not count). If not, you could be missing out on creating a spa right in your own bathroom. The benefits of creating a spa-like atmosphere are endless. For example, after a long day of work, you can enter this tranquil space to unwind from the day. In order to capture this “feeling,” you will want to capitalize on a few bathroom features in 2020. One, you will want the atmosphere to smell like a spa, which means incorporating a diffuser and candles. Two, if your space allows, you will want to add a place to sit. From benches to small stools, the options and sizes are endless, depending on your space. Three, you will want to add luxurious textures. From bathrobes to towels, as your budget allows, begin incorporating elegant fabrics.
A Splash of Color
Let’s be honest; all-white kitchens were a trend in the last decade, but designers do not foresee them being used as often in 2020. In fact, they believe that homeowners will gear more toward lighter, softer tones like pastels and neutral colors rather than white. Since they have already begun to see a shift in 2019, design experts believe that it will continue to be a trend in 2020.
A New Look on Appliances
While stainless steel was one of the most inspiring and used appliances in the last decade, colorful appliances have made their way into the hearts of homeowners all across the country. From toasters to refrigerators to ovens and blenders, the color variety does not end. Designers see homeowners leaning more towards colorful appliances for a playful, fun look in their kitchen. They believe the colors inspire creativity with food and create a beautiful oasis.
A Spacious Kitchen
A recent trend that designers see shifting into 2020 is the trend of not using upper cabinets in your kitchen. This idea creates a more open, spacious design while extending your space vertically. It quite literally “reaches new heights” by making your kitchen look more spacious.
A New Way to Cook
You may be familiar with the word “air fryer,” or you may be unfamiliar with it. Air frying has become all the rage in kitchens across America because of its guilt-free alternative to deep-frying food. Air fryers are a remarkable innovation that allow homeowners to cook fried food like french fries without the guilt of eating deep-fried goods.
