New Year, New Home Trends

Trends are always changing and evolving, but unlike fads, trends don’t leave as fast. If you want to add some trends to your own home, a safe way is to create a balance of classics and trends. Choose around 20% to be trends and 80% to be classics, this way you can swap out those trendy items easier when the time comes to update. Here’s what we’re seeing to be some of the biggest trends of 2020!

Black is Back

The use of black is still a trend but even more than before. Whether counters, cabinets or sinks or walls, black will be seen all-around a home.

Two-Toned Cabinets

While two-toned cabinets aren’t a new trend, we’re happy to say it isn’t going anywhere soon. Mixing finishes give a kitchen a more custom look to create a more visually interesting space.

The Statement Range

The range, whether gas or electric is making statements this year with options to personalize the color and hardware of your choice. While you can expect to spend a lot of money on some brands, we love GE Café Series because of the more affordable cost while still providing the luxury look and statement. Image via Café Appliances

Bold Fireplaces

A fireplace can be a main focal point in a home so why not dress it up with more than just stone? We’re seeing more fireplaces with different surrounds likes quartz, quartzite and mixed materials such as tile and wood planks.


It’s official, more is more this year! Think of maximalism as the polar opposite of minimalism. Elements of maximalism include; layering, repetitive patterns, rich, bold colors, unique statement pieces and blending of styles like eclectic and classic for example.

Large Format Tile

The saying, “bigger is better” speaks well to the larger tile trend we’ll continue to see in 2020. While 12×24 tile is still popular, you can expect to see a growth in the popularity of 24×48 inches and larger.
