Home decor trends keep evolving every year.
In the year 2019, we saw homeowners and interior designers focus on natural materials. Copper, stone, and wood were the most used materials. Large open-plan living rooms dominated the scene with an emphasis on whites and grays.
Industry experts are shaping new trends for the year 2020. The main theme will revolve around natural materials but with added functionality. In this article, we have put together all these home decor trends.
The grays that were king in 2019 still have a place this year. It is a neutral color that complements natural décor. Complete walls patterned in shades of gray with a hint of white to make the room appear more spacious will be seen in every home. Soft pinks and purples will add more color where needed. Walls, upholstery, and textiles will be using blue the most. Blue mimics the sky and the sea so it brings a room together nicely.
Open-plan vs. private areas
The year 2019 saw a rise in large open-plan lounges in homes. Although the idea was not new, people loved it and also learned how to adapt it to their liking in the future. Wooden screens and divisions will be used in 2020 to split large rooms into private spaces. Kitchens will be separate from living rooms to avoid the whole house smelling like food. Moreover, people realized that they could use a little more privacy in kitchens and bedrooms instead of the whole house having no divisions between rooms.

Uniqueness and Individuality
Each aspect of home décor will feature the unique and individual touch of the home-owner. Customization will be the king and designers will have their hands full. We learned from interior décor trends in 2019 that bright, open spaces are preferred by everyone.
The wallpaper has revolutionized home décor and it is not going away anytime soon. For a greener theme, wallpapers in tropical, soft flowery and bright green patterns will decorate one large wall in each room. The colors will be toned down for bedrooms, brightened up for common rooms and feature green motifs in the lobby. Kitchens will be either full black or full white. Minimal design philosophy will rule with the focus being on the functionality of the kitchen.
