Good interior design isn’t always the same thing as good home staging
Jewel-toned wallpaper is trending in 2020, and it could make a bold statement in your home. But if you’re getting ready to sell, all of your wallpaper—even if it’s in style—needs to go. What you love in your home isn’t necessarily what your buyers will love. It’s okay to stage a home with some character, but you want to tone it down enough to still appeal to the right buyers.
On our radio show, we talked about some other hot styles that look great in homes but aren’t necessarily recommended for staging. Listen along as we hit the highlights below!
What’s trending in 2020?
White kitchens look clean and simple; they’re always in style. Glazing was popular in high-end kitchens for a while, but that’s not really on-trend anymore. Vintage is coming back, however, and you can easily get away with a white kitchen that has black-and-white checkered floors.
Another popular trend and fun DIY project is painting your old cabinets. You don’t have to stick to whites and greys though; bright colors are trending right now too. Try meadow green or navy blue. Or you can go with on of the bold jewel tones, like emerald and ruby, that we expect to see trending in 2020.
Homes are curated over time. You collect memorabilia, furniture, and accessories over the course of your life. Incorporating vintage pieces and elements can help a carefully designed home feel less like a showroom house.
Remember the checkered floors we said were coming back? High-contrast features are very in style for 2020. Think black art on white walls and bold graphic pillows.
You can’t help but feel luxurious lying in a bed with a silky canopy overhead. They feel very elegant and exclusive, but they’re becoming more and more popular. Adaptations of the traditional canopy bed are springing up as well. For instance, you can now find canopies that attach to the ceiling and drape down over a standard bed frame.
