5 Home Design Trends You Will See In 2020

A new year brings hope, excitement and mystery. What the next year, months and days will bring is anyone’s guess. One thing remains: The modern home and how society continues to live in it will always be changing. If you’re planning a renovation in 2020 check out these home design trends predicted to excite homeowners this year.

Backsplashes

Slabs: If you find yourself lost in the endless choices of tile backsplash or the thought of having grout lines makes you hesitate, consider taking your countertop material one step further. A slab backsplash with a unique pattern or a lot of movement will make for an eye-catching design statement in your kitchen. If you are looking for something a little more abstract you can mix and match the backsplash slab with the countertop.

Quartzite: Quartzite is rising in popularity amongst homeowners due to its beauty and durability. Quartzite is harder than granite and each slab is unique. This surface is also heat-resistant and more scratch resistant than engineered quartz.

Cabinetry

Three-tone Kitchens: We all have heard the term “two-tone kitchen cabinets” where the upper cabinets are one color and the lower cabinets another. This style dominated kitchens in the past couple of years. It is only natural that designers are building on the trend rather than moving away from it. With a three-tone kitchen, one more color is introduced to create an asymmetry in the color palette that helps define areas of the kitchen or functions.

Islands

Multifunctional Island Centers: Kitchen islands have always been a part of the home but they have certainly been evolving over the years. Many homeowners have taken kitchen islands beyond just storage and a place to sit. Islands are getting bigger and taking on more of a function than ever before. Data shows many homeowners will add in or renovate other features of an island such as a microwave or cooktop. This shows how islands are becoming multifunctional features of the kitchen.

Bathroom

Floating Double Vanities: Choosing to float a vanity frees up floor space which gives the appearance of more room. It also makes cleaning the floor easier than with a furniture style vanity that has legs which can trap dust. So it easy to see why many homeowners are opting for this style in their bathrooms!

These are just of a few of the many great home design trends of 2020 we expect to see. Now it’s your turn! Which of these trends are you excited about? What trends are you predicting in 2020?
