2020 Interior Design Trends: Exciting Expert Predictions for the Year

2020 Interior Design Trends: Exciting Expert Predictions for the Year

Interior design is anything but static. Each year, new trends, colours and materials become prominent. Some older fashions become extinct, only to give birth to new and exciting home improvement possibilities. Previously we have written on decor projects that you can take on in 2020, here we have consolidated on home interior design trends that design experts around the world are predicting for 2020.

The Rise of Grandmillennial Interior Design

Elle Décor has coined a new term. Grandmillennial is an interior design style that according to Elle will dominate 2020.

As the word suggests, this is the grand interior design style but with a modern twist.

So, grandmillennial interior design takes traditional elements like natural fibre rugs and chinoiserie and puts them together with something contemporary, high tech and unexpected. In essence, this is a hybrid that brings together the best of both the “old” world and the future of interior design.

What grandmillennial interior design accomplish is freshness. Sometimes, classic selections can look a bit out of place in a contemporary world. When these elements are twisted a little bit and elevated, however, they can result in a beautiful visual harmony.

Floral, Floral Everywhere

Good Housekeeping takes a look at another element that may look a bit outdated but that will be making a comeback in 2020.

According to the publication, large and bold floral designs and decorations will be the hit over the year. Floral wallpapers, in particular, are the ones that will be seen gracing many walls in apartments throughout the world.

Obviously, floral wallpaper isn’t something that new. It’s been around for decades and there are so many versions. Just like grandmillennial interior design, however, the traditional floral wallpaper will be getting its own 2020 spin.

Stylised prints, bold colours, metallic flowers and even textured options will become quite popular. In addition, the market will feature many stick-on decorative options that will enable owners to experiment with the trend without committing 100 per cent.

Good Housekeeping recommends floral wallpapers as a lovely option for brighten up the entryway. At our Singapore interior design company, we do agree with the suggestions and believe it could contribute to a ton of cheerfulness.

Mass Manufactured No More

One of the best home renovation projects involves getting rid of the clutter. Unfortunately, many people find it difficult to carry out such a renovation because they cannot let things go.

The first month of 2020 is the perfect time to declutter and reorganise your apartment, especially if you are living in a smaller HDB flat.

Start with the selection of some smart organisation and storage units. There are boxes and organisers you can fit under the bed or place in a walk-in closet. These can hold a large volume of items that you don’t really need to have on constant display.

Even if you live in a tiny apartment, there are still ways to get organised and to discover a bit of additional storage space. A professional interior designer will give you some suggestions you never would have considered possible.

What matters the most, however, is determining what you can throw away or donate to charity. Most of us have way too many possessions that we don’t really need or enjoy. Items that have been in your flat for a long time without any actual use will have to go.

Break the Rules

One thing is certain – the world of Singapore home interior design is becoming more colourful and diversified by the year.

In the past decades, there were numerous rules and frameworks that governed the work of designers and home décor professionals. Today, many people are willing to go beyond the boundaries and explore concepts that wouldn’t have been considered possible or beautiful in the past.

Exposed bricks in your living room? Why not! Industrial elements? Bring them on! A busy, textured wall décor in the bedroom? This may be the perfect opportunity to bring the place to life.

If you have an interesting, eccentric or even outrageous idea, you shouldn’t be afraid to pursue it. Some of the best and most distinctive interior designs have resulted from bending the rules and forgetting about the standards every once in a while. What matters is being convinced in the concept and not just following a trend blindly.

And again – you will need a professional to guide you through the process. Breaking the interior design rules is fine, as long as you’re staying within the limits set by the HDB. There are certain regulations you cannot violate and an experienced designer will help you find out what’s achievable and what needs to be scrapped.

It’s an exciting new year and we can’t wait to see what 2020 will brings to the world of interior design. At Home Guide, we’re ready to embrace change and new trends. If you’d like to explore some of these new opportunities with us, don’t hesitate to contact the Home Guide team right now.
