10 Home Design Trends That Will Be Seen In 2020 Some years there are groundbreaking trends that come through but 2020 will be a year of recurring trends.
Here are 10 trends to look forward to this year:
1. Dark Colors
White walls have been dominating the design world for several years and now it’s time for bold colors to make a comeback. Richer colors such as reds, pinks, yellows, and greens will make the more muted furnishing and decor pop. Here are 9 paint colors that Houzz is predicting to dominate homes in 2019.
2. Eye-Catching Backsplash
traditional kitchen backsplashes, designers are predicting to see more full-height backsplashes stretching from counter to ceiling. Backsplashes will also become an eye-catching focal point.
3. No More White Cabinets
White cabinets have been seen in kitchens time and time again but in 2019, expect to see less of them. There will be a return of black cabinets and range hoods, using white walls, counters, and backsplashes as a contrast. Black in kitchens can be edgy but it’s practical for high functioning kitchens as the dark cabinets hide scuff marks.
4. Indoor Outdoor Kitchens
In 2019 more homes in warmer climates will have areas expanding from the kitchen to the outdoors. Patios will be transformed into additional seating areas with durable rugs and seat cushions. Expect to see more kitchens with collapsible doors and windows creating a completely open indoor-outdoor space.
5. Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns are not a new trend but they are expected to make a dramatic presence in the new year. With bold colors and oversized patterns, it will be a trend that transforms any room into a bold statement. In 2019, geometric patterns will be seen in tile, wallpaper, and accessories.
6. Accent Rooms
Taking the accent wall trend a step further, 2019 will be the year of accent rooms. It is expected that homeowners will paint all of the walls of a room a bold and dramatic color. Professionals are predicting that this trend will mostly be seen in smaller more private rooms of the house such as an office, den, or bedroom.
7. Velvet Furniture
Yep, velvet is making a comeback. A trend that was once viewed as old and shabby will now be viewed as luxurious and chic. Velvet has already started to make a comeback, especially in fashion, but expect to see more of it entering interiors in 2019.
8. Brass Fixtures
Another trend that will return in the new year is brass fixtures. 2019 will be the year to say goodbye to stainless steel and polished nickel and invite a little warmth.
9. Trough Sinks

10. Vintage Lighting
In 2019 expect to see more vintage copper and brass pendants and sconces to add a unique touch to any room. Lighting will be used as a detail element to pull the design trends together.
