2020 Home Design Trends that Made an Impact

We’ve all been spending a lot more time at home this year. Looking back over the years, there have been many trends that we’ve fallen in love with while others have left us uninspired. From flooring styles to favorite colors, an article by Insider Online lists some of our favorite home design trends that we’d like to see continue into the new year…and others that may end up fading away.


Have you considered darker and richer floor colors to add depth do your home? Even though a light oak floor is still considered a classic, a darker floor may be the best option if you’re looking to add depth to the home. In the past, people would often opt for lighter floors to open up the space, but there are other ways to do that in the home with mirrors and lighting.

Matte n’ black.

From cabinets to sinks and faucets, matte black is still a popular color theme in homes everywhere. Tying in nicely with the industrial themed home, this modern look is a very popular one, especially when the black door handles and faucets are being used in an all-white kitchen. Looking to the future, 2021 will likely start to also bring in softer elements without sacrificing modern looks we love. Another home design trend that designers are anticipating is adding pops of color in all rooms, including kitchens and baths.

The use of wood and the shiplap trend.

Wood paneling being used to create interesting walls in the home (thank you, Chip and Joanna) has been popular for many years. The trend succeeds because it ties in nicely with the modern farmhouse look people love. In 2021, some designers are anticipating other woodwork styles going beyond shiplap for the home that can really offer a unique and bold statement in your living space. Depending on your personal preference and style, there are many options available.

Adding in Cabinet Space.

Other trends that have been popular in the past include displaying oversized electronics like TV’s (instead of hiding them in cabinets) and installing open shelving in the kitchen and the rest of your home. Designers today are recommending cabinetry for your items to hide large appliances and disguise what’s in your kitchen. Items stored in open shelving can be hard to keep in order and will often appear messy and cluttered with everyday use.
