The Top 10 Home Design Trends for 2020 Include Tiled Tubs, Bold Wallpaper and Laundry Rooms That Rival Living Rooms

Every year around this time our friends at Houzz let us in on the home design trends set to make a splash in the coming year. And 2020 has some surprising things in store. According to the leading platform for home remodeling and design, everything from our kitchens to our laundry rooms are due for a makeover. We’ll be spending more time in our dining rooms and bathrooms thanks to colorful accents and stylish seating. And you don’t have to spend a fortune to add a little personality to home sweet home.

See below for tips and tricks to update every room in your house.

Add Warmth to White Kitchens

While white kitchens will still be trending, homeowners will be looking for ways to break up the monotony. Wood drawers, shelves and pullouts are easy ways to warm up the cool space.

Dining With Personality

We’re all pretty busy, but next year we’ll all be flocking to our dining rooms for all major meals. Why? Dining rooms are set to become centerpieces bursting with as much personality (via colors, patterns and lighting) as living rooms, bedrooms and more.

Take a Seat

The best only seat in the bathroom may be the toilet, but that’s about to change. Come 2020 homeowners will be looking for more places to unwind and adding stools or built-in benches to their restrooms is a great place to start.

Tiles for Miles

We’re used to seeing tile decorating bathroom floors and now the material is spreading to our bathtubs. Wrapping your tub apron in tile is a great way to upgrade a standard tub. Not a tile fan? Try using wood or another material.

Soften Things Up

Homeowners will be looking to tone down their kitchens with softer shades, like light grays and blues. The more subdued hues are the perfect counterpoint to all those warmer white cabinets.

Double or Nothing

Why have one floating vanity when you can have two? Double floating vanities are on the rise as people look to add more space and style to their bathrooms. Plus, it makes cleaning the floor a breeze.

Add character to your powder room with eye-catching wallpaper. It’s just like topping off your look with a statement coat to really turn heads.

Expand Your Range

Remember how we said white kitchens are about to get a whole lot warmer? So is your range hood. Incorporating a wooden accent brings a touch of texture and breaks up all that white.

No More Neutrals

Neutrals may still be trending in fashion, but when it comes to your home, warmer, brighter colors are about to take over. Everything from coral to ocher will be popping up in 2020.
