As 2019 comes to a close, there’s never been a better time to update your knowledge of trending home designs, colors, textures, materials, and more. 2020 is coming in hot, and with it, a variety of new trends you’ll want to incorporate into your home. In case you want to keep things fresh and not fall behind the times, here are some of the hottest colors, textures, materials, and other trends you should know about in 2020.
Colors come and colors go, as far as trends are concerned. In 2020, we’re expecting colors like grey, blue, pink, and neutrals to be really popular. Your options for bringing them into your home are pretty varied as well. You might try out some pink throw pillows on your couch, a blue rug for your living room, some nice neutral accents for your curtains or bedspread, or even some grey flooring in your kitchen.
Not only will quartz and wood materials be incredibly chic this upcoming year, but they will also make a great semi-permanent investment if you think you’ll be looking to sell your house anytime in the near future. We suggest going with wood siding, synthetic quartz countertops in the kitchen or bathroom, or butcher block cabinets in your kitchen. Some combination of the three would work as well.
One trend emerging in 2020 that is relatively new to the scene is board and batten siding. This can be a great compromise between the beauty and popularity of wood siding, and the durability of metal siding. Board and batten siding comes in a variety of wood colors and even resembles the feel of natural log siding. When it comes to trending textures in 2020, board and batten siding would make a great choice for the exterior of your home.
Another siding option we expect to boom in popularity in 2020 is vertical siding. You could go with vertical hardwood siding, vertical vinyl, or vertical metal siding designed to look like natural wood. One of the biggest benefits of this soon-to-be-hot trend is that it helps draw the eye towards your roof and makes your house look taller. For medium to small-sized homes or homes with great roofing, vertical siding can make the perfect compliment.
If you want to prevent your home from becoming outdated as the decade comes to a close, you need to stay on top of what’s hot and what’s not. By incorporating some of the trending colors, textures, materials, and more listed in this article, you’ll be making a bold stylistic statement that not only are you ready to move into 2020 with a bang, but you’re ready for everything this upcoming year can throw at you.
