Are you planning to renovate your home this year or even this decade? Wondering what the top interior design trends and home renovation ideas of 2020 might be? Here’s a look at some of the top trends that will be influencing renovations this year. Get ready to be inspired!
Home design trends: arches
In 2020, “rounded” is the new right angle in both architectural details and furniture. Maybe it’s due to how arches mimic Greek hillside homes (think the picturesque island of Santorini) or the smooth, clean lines give way to a shape that feels organic and natural, but multiple archways can add a dynamic touch to any space.
Home design trends: bold painted cabinets
Chances are that your kitchen is the room you’ll spend the most waking time in. Don’t make it dull – update the space with bold coloured kitchen cabinets. There’s a variety of colours that can evoke different emotions, adding vibrancy to your kitchen. Pair with the perfect patterned backsplash and contrasting countertops and flooring for a complete look!
Home design trends: modern wood panelling
By no means is this the wood panelling you find in your parents’ basement! Just like skinny jeans have established themselves as a hot commodity, modern wood panelling – specifically skinny strips or intentionally designed patterns – are in. The wood panelling of the modern variety is making a big comeback with multiple uses –as accents, applied at interesting angles, in fresh stains and tones, or as a timeless statement centrepiece.
Home design trends: statement tiles
When you’re updating your home, don’t leave adding your personality and visual style to your bathroom renovation! One of the best ways to leave an impression is through an enhancement like statement tiles.
The options as to how you display your style and make your imprint are endless. Tiles now come in eye-popping 3D essence, dynamic geometric shapes like hexagon and triangle, and timeless classics in bold new styles will make a comeback.
Home design trends: statement windows
The majority of 2020 trends lean towards the bold and beautiful your home’s windows should receive the same treatment. Statement windows deliver visual appeal inside, but also affect the curb appeal outside your home for double the impact! Bonus points if you combine your statement window with other trends – like arches or bold trim.
Home design trends: cane detailing
Every few years new styles of natural woven materials emerge as part of a home design trend. This year is the year of the cane detailing! While you can accessorize your home’s décor with furniture pieces that contain cane detailing, like dining sets, partitions, bed frames, coffee or end tables, you could take it a step further with cane detailing kitchen cabinetry fronts – for example.
Home design trends: sustainable materials
In our world, sustainability is becoming more important every year. We can all help with an eco-friendlier lifestyle, and interior design and renovation are beginning to reflect this mindset. People are becoming more eco-conscious and buying more sustainable products.
However, buyer beware. Some sustainable materials are very popular and others are not. Anything recycled like plastic materials, upcycled tile, or bamboo is a win. If you’re unsure what is currently in or out of style – let us be your guide!
Home design trend: incorporating human design with natural elements
A new trend that incorporates both human design and natural elements in a way that does not seem artificial or manufactured. It’s centred around the relationship between indoors and outdoors – humans and nature. It allows designers to create rich, earthy spaces that promote calm, relaxation and serenity by bringing the outdoors in. Also, it doesn’t always mean the outdoors in the literal sense. Often it means nature patterns (wallpaper, fabrics, etc.), or other such finishes.
We applied this specific trend to elements throughout our most recently completed renovation, a whole home renovation, for our clients on Victoria Crescent. We tied the entire, open concept main floor renovation together with exposed beams, accents of natural wood, live-edge table (in the photo), and modern tiles and flooring for maximum appeal.

Home design trend: bold trim and ceilings
Monochrome rooms are out. High-contrast design is making a comeback. It’s being used to make neutral-coloured rooms more interesting. Things like wallpaper trim, contrasting moulding, and even painted or wallpapered ceilings can be used to add visual flair and distinctiveness to bedrooms, powder rooms, living spaces and more.
Home design trend: two-tone kitchens
White kitchens are iconic and desirable – and will likely continue to be popular in 2020. But two-tone kitchens are also making a comeback. A mixture of a black base and white uppers in cabinets, for example, is becoming more popular among many clients – especially when used alongside other materials like natural wood and accent colours. In 2020, we expect this trend to continue as clients begin to realize the possibilities of two-tone or multicoloured kitchens.
Home design trend here to stay: Neutrals
Neutral colours are timeless – and sure to be a major trend in this upcoming year. The classic, serene and beautiful appearance of neutrals like gray, beige, and cool/warm whites are totally versatile and can be used in almost any room.
This won’t stop at the walls, though – we expect that more neutrals will be used in furniture and appliances in the home. Especially when combined with bold patterns and other colours, neutrals are a home renovation trend that is unlikely to slow down any time soon!
