As DIY gets more popular, more people need room for their hobbies
We’ve written a lot about new styles, but we saved the most creative design trends for last! First up: hobby rooms.
Not everyone is “crafty.” But, thanks to platforms like Youtube and Pinterest, the ability to learn or share a creative hobby is right at your fingertips. Because of this, many home-owning hobbyists need a dedicated space to pursue their chosen craft.
This is just one of the creative design trends we’re seeing in homes in 2020. But it’s certainly not the most surprising one.
The 20’s are generally expected to be a decade of bold colors. All of the grey neutrals we’re used to are on their way out, while Boho styles and jewel tones are on their way in. But that colorful style doesn’t stop in the bedrooms and living rooms.
White kitchens are still a classic choice. They’ll never go out of style. But many homeowners are bringing bright colors to their kitchen cabinetry. Bold greens and blues can add a bit of life to a neutral kitchen. You can even mix-and-match with darker-colored lower cabinets and lighter-colored tops.
As more and more products and services pop up for pampering your pet, some homeowners have installed dog shower stations in their laundry rooms. This may seem like a big investment, but bear in mind; as of 2018, there are more pet-owning households than there are those with children. So when designing or staging a house, keep furry friends in mind!
The industrial look is still quite popular, especially among millennials—who now make up the majority of home buyers. Some designers are taking the distressed features of industrial styles to a new extreme: faux rust.
You can now buy rust paint for industrial walls. It’s only faux, however, in the sense that it’s painted on. The paint typically contains real iron that actually rusts.
