Colors, Textures, Materials, And More: A Look At Aesthetic Home Trends For 2020

2020 is shaping up to be a big year in home design. Both indoors and out, new trends are popping up all over the place. If you were lost for ideas on how to decorate your new home, you’re in luck, because there’s certainly no shortage of unique and stylish ideas to experiment with this year. In case you’re looking to get in line with the times and try out some new design trends in 2020, here are a few you might want to consider.

  1. Two-Tone Exterior Colors

Exterior design is one of the areas in which we’ve seen new trends emerging. Especially two-tone color schemes. Black and gold, as well as white on white, are two in particular that seem to be rising in popularity this year. 

  1. Neutral Color Schemes

On the indoors side of things, neutral color schemes like beige, off-white, grey, and more are trending. One unique way to implement a neutral color scheme into your home is by entertaining some grey flooring ideas. Reclaimed wood makes an especially classy choice here, as it provides you with the grey needed for a neutral color scheme and imbues the room with a cool, smoky vibe as well.

  1. Luxury Synthetic Asphalt Shingles

New luxury shingles are another hot topic in home design for 2020. Synthetic asphalt shingles look just as good, if not better than regular shingles, but also provide you with much more durability thanks to their chemical composition. Synthetic asphalt is also more eco-friendly than regular asphalt, which is another plus.

  1. Quartz Countertops

Boring laminate and granite counters are out, and quartz is in. Quartz comes and goes in terms of popularity but it’s projected to trend big in 2020, with sales already seeing a boost this year. Quartz is highly desired for its aesthetic beauty, with many claiming that there is no other material able to match it in this category. You might utilize it in the form of some new kitchen countertops, or maybe new quartz countertops in your bathroom.

  1. Bold Monochromatics

We’re not talking about monochromatics as you traditionally know them, but the bolder variety. Cobalt Blue, Kelly Green, Aubergine, and more are all very in style this year. Match them together in a room for a sense of daring elegance and personality. 

There’s A Lot To Work With In 2020

When it comes to staying in style both inside and out, you have a lot to choose from in 2020. The ideas we’ve listed here are just a few of the options you have when it comes to staying chic and hip around the home.
