Technological advancements are making the world move faster and faster every day. To counterbalance those frantic feelings, we predict 2020 home décor will be centered on bringing family and friends closer together to relax and enjoy each other’s company. To kick off this next decade, we put together the trends you’ll see everywhere and ways you can integrate them into your home.
A Push Towards More Sociable Spaces
The television is no longer the center of the home! We predict 2020 homes will focus even more on creating spaces to connect with your loved ones in the next year. Find places in your home where you can create an intimate space to sit with a cup of coffee and catch up with a friend (or two!).
There’s no reason to limit yourself, either. Why not spruce up your deck or patio with a new seating arrangement? 2020 will be the year to enjoy bonding time with your friends and family when you entertain outdoors.
A huge trend in the coming year will be seamlessly incorporating textures into living spaces. Start with a home full of natural beauty and modern simplicity, like our Brighton Townhomes, and tailor it to your personal style. Natural materials, like a stone fireplace, deepen your connection to the great outdoors. Compliment these connections with pillows and throws made from materials like wool, or wall art made from intricately twisted tree branches. Incorporating a natural element, like cut agate, could be just what you’re looking for to spruce up your bookshelf or entryway.
The Rise of the Home Office
If you are thinking of adding a home office, 2020 will be the year to do it. Thanks to more companies offering opportunities to work remotely, and more people pursuing a freelance career, the need for distraction-free workspaces at home is greater than ever.
Incorporating personal touches into your space, like family photos or décor pieces, will help create a beautiful home office that’s uniquely yours. Thanks to tools like video chat, the interconnected nature of today’s workplace means it’s likely your coworkers will see at least part of your workspace from time to time –why not make it a reflection of your personality?
Warm and Welcoming Kitchens
The kitchen has always been, and will likely always be, the center of the home and 2020 kitchens will be no exception. Darker cabinetry, like what you’ll find in Shoreline’s Alta Townhomes, will be a luxe and livable alternative to the sleek-but-cold all-white kitchens that have been popular in the past few years. In fact, we predict next year’s kitchens will be warmer and more welcoming than ever! Large, eat-in kitchens will provide plenty of room for making family meals and memories that will last a lifetime.
