Interior design trends change with time like all other fashion. If you are planning on renovating or redecorating your home, you’ll probably want it to reflect your tastes. However, being up-to-date on the current fashions will allow you to make your home look more contemporary. You might even discover a new favorite style! We have compiled a list of top interior design trends of 2020 to help you make your home stylish and of-the-times.

Home offices

In an unexpected twist, 2020 highlighted the importance of having a space in your home that can be used as an office. The coronavirus pandemic forced most employees to scramble to find a way to stay on top of their work from home. This is a trend that has been developing for some time now, and it is likely here to stay. So, if you are moving and trying to find a new home in Ontario, a home office should be on your list of priorities. It doesn’t have to be a whole separate room, though that would be ideal. Talk to your Ontario real estate agent before you start looking and let them know that this is non-negotiable.

If you have already moved in and need to create an office space for yourself, do not fret. Anything from a guest room to a walk-in closet can function as a home office with just a little bit of an innovative spirit. All you have to do is find a quiet corner of your home, and fit it out with a floating shelf, small fold-down desk, and a chair.

Multifunctional spaces

With the increase in remote working this year, the high functionality of all spaces has been put to the test. Besides having a space to use as a home office, one of the biggest interior design trends this year has been creating multifunctional rooms. Some of these spaces are easy and happy marriages – a child’s bedroom and playroom all in one, for example. However, others require a bit more ingenuity, like turning your garage into a workout space. Wherever you see the potential for a multipurpose room, take advantage.

Kitchen overhaul

If you want to combine different interior design trends of 2020, there is no better space for it but the kitchen. Kitchen islands, for example, have long been an interior design staple. Somehow, everybody ends up hanging out in the kitchen, and having an island facilitates that. Besides its primary function as a work station, it can also be used as a dining table and even an improvised office space. If you want to go all the way, why not invest in a cantilevered kitchen island? It lowers the height of the island for a more comfortable experience.

Furthermore, you can freshen up your island by using new materials. Interior designers say granite’s on its way out. Its great new substitute is quartz. Marble Trend is right on the cutting edge of this design trend with great quartz alternatives that are durable and easy to maintain. They are also esthetically pleasing – easily mimicking granite or marble. Finally, forgo the all-white and pick two or three colors for your kitchen and stick with them. 2020 favors two- or three-tone kitchen designs.

Earth tones

Cool tones are a thing of the past, making way for one of the top interior design trends of 2020 – earth tones. Warm shades of brown, red, yellow, and orange can make all the difference in a home, making it warmer and cozier. And they can pretty much be applied anywhere. If you are up for a major renovation, you might want to consider installing new wood flooring. Marble Trend now carries its first natural wood line. Not only are the Listone Giordano hardwood floors long-lasting and elegant, but they also provide a great canvas. They will highlight the rest of your design beautifully, no matter what you decide to go for.

Dark-painted doors

White doors with a white trim seem like an immovable staple. However, more and more people are taking doors and turning them into dramatic statements by painting them a full, strong color. A dark-painted door can provide a great accent to a room, especially when you pair it up with exquisite hardware. It will add warmth to the space. In the same breath, it will let you exhibit a bit of character and personality with your choice of color.

Neutrals for bathrooms

Just like the kitchen island got its update, so do bathroom designs. One of the top interior design trends when it comes to bathrooms is using neutral colors and combining them with interesting textures. It provides the space with more depth and makes them seem larger. Your choice of Marble Trend’s shower accessories will allow you to add your personal touch to the space. Don’t be afraid to play around; designers say bathrooms are a great space for experimenting with color, materials, and even wallpaper.

Biophilic design

Biophilic design is one of the latest interior design trends of 2020. It makes use of natural elements in building environments that reduce stress and increase productivity and a sense of wellbeing. This type of design manages to do that by incorporating the direct and indirect experience of nature. Direct experience of nature is achieved by the use of natural light, incorporation of water through fountains, and the inclusion of living plants. Indirect experience of nature comes through the use of natural materials, selection of colors, and the use of images of nature.

It is safe to say that biophilic design has a bright future ahead of it. You will probably see it incorporated into our environments more and more. The growing need for sustainability on our planet also works in its favor.
