Interior Design Trends You Need To Know In 2020

Neutrality

How to achieve a neutral home interior

In 2020, we’re going to see a continuation of an ongoing trend over the past few years - a sparing use of bold colour to create highlights. So in the coming year, it’s all about earth-tones and neutral colours complemented by understated monochromatic designs - a timeless choice to stand the test of time through any decade.

With a subtle, neutral backdrop, it’s easy to ring the changes. Simply add bold colours with furniture, pillows and accessories, and you can continue to refresh any space with small but exciting statements. 

What flooring works well with a neutral design?

To achieve the neutral interior trend, we suggest you look at your space in terms of its size and function, and opt for soft, neutral carpeting or natural wood flooring. Using rugs with either bold contrasting colours or strong geometric designs gives you the vital contrast against the monochromatic or earth-tone backgrounds.

Geometric Patterns

How to introduce geometric patterns into your home interior

Geometric patterns have been on the up for quite some time and 2020 is definitely the year to take advantage of the trend. A word of caution - be careful how you integrate them into your decor, as it’s very easy to get carried away and overdo it. The most successful way to use them is to create a balance between strong geometrics and low-key solid colours in soft, neutral, complementary shades. When you’re making a statement, choose your spaces wisely!

If you’re not sure how geometrics will work in your home, experimenting with patterned rugs against a plain carpet or natural wood floor is a good way to start. You’ll achieve a minimal, contemporary look that you can build on with cushions or throws. Visit Sharon Leon, and you could even try playing around with our Amtico room visualiser to get an idea of what could work!

What flooring works best with a geometric theme?

The best way to complement your geometric design depends on how you want the geometric patterns to fit in. If you’re looking at accessories, geometric patterned rugs are the way to go. If you want the flooring itself to be the statement, we can offer several carpet options including geometric textures and geometric patterns; and for bathrooms and kitchens, we have a range of stunning vinyls  - many with customised decorative highlights if desired.

Biophilic Design

Introducing biophilia into your home interiors

Biophilic design is one of 2020s most exciting interior design trends, bringing together elements of human design with nature in a way that doesn’t look manufactured. To really embrace this merging of rustic and human, incorporating organic elements from the environment such as plants or driftwood, immerses your home in a natural, handmade feel. 

Achieving this look can also be helped by using recycled wood furniture, and adding a low maintenance bio-montage wall to any corner of the room.

What flooring works well with a biophilic design?

We can contribute to this exciting trend with a fantastic range of wood flooring that you can view in our showrooms. While the wood flooring complements the natural elements of the room, you can embellish by adding natural rugs such as sisal, completing the look and breathing natural life into your home.
