The Predicted Home Trends For 2020

Are you looking to give your home a long overdue makeover in the New Year? Millions of others will have made it their New Year’s Resolution to do the same.  

Before you get to work, we thought we’d give you a little round-up of what’s predicted to be “hot” in home interiors in 2020 so that whatever you do leaves the place looking fashionable.

An on-trend home will earn you lots of plaudits from people, which will make you so house proud.  

James Oliver has had its ears to the ground and here’s what we’ve heard will be causing a storm…

‘Classic Blue’ and ‘Tranquil Dawn’ Colours

You will be seeing these two colours in homes everywhere over the next 12 months after Pantone and Dulux announced them as their colours of the year for 2020.

Classic Blue has been described by Pantone as follows: “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

Dulux, on the other hand, have opted for the versatile green shade, inspired by the morning sky, to help give homes the human touch.

Retailers have jumped on the bandwagon by releasing everything from table lamps and wall art to cushion covers and dinner sets in both colours.

Wallpapered ceilings

A few years back, we were all being told that painted statement ceilings where the ‘in’ thing, but that looks set to change. Homeowners will be covering their fifth wall with wallpaper.

If you have rooms that already have patterned walls, use an understated or textured wallpaper covering for the ceiling to avoid these rooms becoming too pattern-heavy.

Choose a colour that gives the room a bright feel and makes people’s eyes instantly look skyward.

It isn’t easy adding a ceiling covering, so instead of risking doing it yourself and making a botched job, get in the pros.

‘Green’ homeware

We all need to be more mindful of the environment with our buying habits e.g. avoiding plastic as much as possible.

Designers are reacting to this increasing need to go ‘green’ by creating more and more homewares from eco-friendly materials like bioplastic, which neglects the use of petroleum.

You can now get sustainable furniture, utensils, crockery etc. that will add style to your house, and at the same time, show that you are committed to saving the planet.
