The new year is a great time to transform your home’s interior. As you write your remodeling wish list, you might want to consider the trend projections for the coming year. The latest home designs are brighter, smarter, and more eco-friendly. More homeowners are prioritizing security and smart home technology as well. While some styles are sticking around, 2020 is looking like a fresh start for the industry. 

If you’re planning to revamp your home’s personality, consider these upcoming trends. 

Colorful Kitchens

White kitchens dominated design trends during the past few years. This classic look was hard to beat, but the trend might be on the way out. Neutral-loving homeowners can stray from white by choosing gray cabinets and black granite countertops. If you’re feeling bold, consider adding pops of color. One popular kitchen design trend includes colored base cabinets with white upper cabinets. A colorful kitchen table, backsplash, or even an area rug can also add personality.

Custom Built-ins

As your life gets busier, your home design should become more efficient. Built-in storage is a must in today’s homes, so consider including this design in your home remodeling project. Custom built-in wardrobes, entertainment centers, and bookshelves can open space in your home and make each space impeccably organized. Just be sure to work with a contractor that specializes in custom builtins, so you can achieve a design that fits your taste and lifestyle.

Recycled Materials

Today’s home designs are all about eco-friendly features. If the environment is one of your top priorities, consider incorporating recycled materials into your home design. Work with local fabrication companies to turn scrap metal into kitchen hardware. Get shelves and tables made from reclaimed wood. Repurposing old materials and working with local artisans to do so will lower the environmental footprint of your design. 


If there’s one step you can take to modernize your home, it’s swapping out all of your carpets for hardwood. Dark wood is particularly popular, giving your home a sleeker look without sacrificing warmth. To make up for the monochromatic look of hardwood, consider adding area rugs. Lighter area rugs or those with colorful patterns set the tone for the rest of the room, so consider your overall desired style before choosing a rug.

Floating Vanities

If you’re renovating your bathroom this coming year, consider adding a floating vanity. This feature creates a sleek look and increases your floor space. Families with kids can use this space to place baskets for out-of-site storage. You can also enjoy the ease of cleaning with fewer corners to navigate. This master bathroom feature creates a minimalist design, and you can add a double sink to give yourself a bit of luxury.

Smarthome Features 

Today’s new builds are all about smart features and increased security, so consider adding home technology to your remodeling project. Smart speakers, connected appliances, and home security cameras are great features to include as you revamp your space. When you set out for some new technology, don’t feel like you have to put yourself in debt. It’s possible to find a quality, top-of-the-line gadget for a reasonable cost. Sites like TheStore offer revamped technology that’s just like new. Your guests will be impressed once they see you’ve modernized. 

As you write goals for yourself in the coming year, remember to include home design resolutions as well. Use the new year to refresh your style, make your home more secure, and reduce your eco-footprint. And remember that the above trends are just ideas. 

You can work with a home designer to create a space that perfectly fits your personality. The results will be a beautiful home design that matches your evolving taste, and your family and guests are sure to feel even more at home in your intentional space.
