If you are wondering which trends in home decor are heading out and which ones are on their way in, you are in the right article! To find out what to expect in 2020, we collected the predictions and spoke to top interior design firm in Kuala Lumpur.
The change from the open concept floor plan, experts also expects a single room focus in 2020. While in small dens or office spaces homeowners may have turned up their nose or knocked down walls before, many now embrace a sense of quaintness and lean into smaller spaces.
Not only can a small space be easier to decorate, but playing with bold patterns and colors is a great place. A busy wallpaper in a big, over-sized room may be too much but it can easily turn a smaller space into a design intention statement.
Interior designers also believes that throughout the home we will see a shift from manmade to natural materials. From countertops to vanities to bathroom tile work, more homeowners are choosing natural materials such as calcareous, onyx, and sandstone not only to create a more environmentally conscious space, but also a more unique look.
Tall Glass Walls
A nod to the movement to welcome the outdoors, firms expect homeowners will become even bigger in 2020 with windows. Not only does floor-to-ceiling glass increase the amount of natural light your home has, it also gives you a sense of living indoor-outdoor, even when the weather turns too cold to dine al fresco.
Bold wallpaper aren’t going anywhere in 2020, according to interior design firms. Wallpaper has begun to crawl into home decoration, but expect it to become even more common next year. Not only does bold wallpaper create endless visual interest, it can also replace expensive artworks and act as a focal point in a room, especially when used as an accent wall.
If in the past you have shied away from wallpaper because of the cost, finding budget-friendly options is becoming easier.
Calm and Relaxing Colors
While Living Coral was the 2019 Colour of the Year, in 2020, we expect to see even more soft muted colours. Most color designers selected neutral-inspired colors as their 2020 paint colours, from soft pink hues to pastel green shades. Although bolder options such as navy and hunter green are still on the rise, quiet colors are increasingly spreading across the house.
Moreover, a pastel or muted paint color can be a great way to replace standard white or gray tones without color going over the top.
