Home decor trends

As 2019 is slowly approaching its end, it’s time to take a look at what’s ahead of us, when it comes to home décor. This year, there were specific home décor trends, with an increased focus on minimalism, effective storage techniques, and sustainable materials.

In 2020, these trends are expected to continue influencing home décor, bringing in the unusual geometric shapes, feminine tones, and sustainable handmade décor pieces.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at seven best home décor trends for 2020. These trends are perfect for urban apartment and home dwellers, who are looking for better ways to organize and decorate their living space.

1. Using natural materials to divide the living space

In 2019, we have been observing a tendency to create open spacious home environments. We boldly combined kitchens, dining rooms, and living rooms, creating a communicated home space.

In 2020, this trend is going to fade away, bringing back separator walls slowly. Wood is expected to be the primary material for separator walls, hinting at the sustainability trend that will dominate home décor in 2020.

2. Vertical gardens

Talking about sustainability, vertical gardens are going to be among the most loved home décor trends. Not only do they serve a useful purpose of keeping the air at your home clean, but this is also an excellent solution to organize your indoor (or outdoor) garden pots.

This trend is already gaining popularity in 2019 and is expected to grow stronger next year. Vertical gardens are perfect space organizers, keeping your window sill free from overcrowding flowerpots. Besides, this is a great home décor solution both for apartments and homes.

3. Multi-functional furniture

Folding coffee/dinner tables, convertible sofas, pouffes and coffee tables with extra storage inside continue to dominate home décor in 2020, as smart storage and minimalism will remain trendy next year.

Multifunctional closets with foldable ironing boards and shoe storage placed on the closet door will also remain a popular trend in 2020, as minimalist storage techniques, like KonMari, will continue to influence home space organization.

4. Variable homes and personalisation of spaces

A fluid home or a variable home is another trend that we will observe as we enter 2020. Variable homes are all about the personalization of spaces, turning a familiar couch-armchair-coffee table-TV set organization into something that fits your personality more.

Also called a hybrid home, this space organization idea allows you to turn some spaces of your apartment or house into a gym or a home office without disrupting the main design of a room.

“Variable homes are all about using your living space to the maximum”, says Martina Peterson, a designer and a blogger at Spanish translation company PickWriters.

If you take a look at the picture above, you’ll see gymnastics equipment hanging from a ceiling in the kitchen. The same can be done with a folding coffee table that turns into a desk, turning your living room into a home office. Possibilities are limitless.

5. Ethnic home décor elements

If you plan on coming back to your roots, 2020 will be the year for that. Ethnic home décor elements will be among the most popular accessories to bring a breath of fresh air to your living space.

If you take a look at the IKEA 2020 Catalog, you’ll see ethnic décor elements dominating almost every room design. After all, history repeats itself, and this 2020 home décor trend is not an exception. Besides, it would look particularly useful in urban apartments and homes.

6. Eye-catching accents

While neutral and pastel colours will still dominate the colour palette for 2020, eye-catching details like wall décor elements or other accessories will help bring a bright accent to your living space.

Such décor elements bring a vivid modern touch to your home, and most of them you can DIY yourself. The preferred décor elements include geometric forms created from metal or bright-colour pictures in minimalist-style frames.

7. Nature motifs on your walls

While so-called feminine colours will remain trendy for 2020, it doesn’t mean that next year we won’t observe a trend for more colour on your walls.

The tendency to nature motifs will significantly influence this trend. Flower-styled and nature-style wallpapers are set to come back next year, helping you bring so-called accent walls back to life.

Wrapping up

In 2020, tendencies to remain more environment-conscious, with the focus on sustainability and minimalism, will significantly influence home décor. 2020 home décor trends will prove that even simple materials and sustainable design elements can turn your home into a perfect place to live in.

The ideas that we covered above will be perfect for organization lovers, who are looking for the ideal ways to organize and style their homes for 2020.
