2020 Renovating Trends
Since it’s still early in the year we should talk trends for 2020! I’m excited to say colour and texture are definitely back!
I was so happy to see the introduction of colour into the kitchen last year and that trend is looking like it’s continuing into 2020! While people were still playing it relatively safe they were increasingly adding splashes of colour with soft blue tones, introducing timber into the kitchen with timber custom shelves, or choosing a dark navy island cabinet colour instead of all white. Soft shades of colour and texture were also introduced through the splashback tile with green being a popular choice.

In 2020, we will see colour and texture used on an even greater scale throughout the home. Our next renovation is an Australian coastal influenced design and the kitchen will use warm timbers, rattan and textured lineal cabinets fronts for a beachy look. The bathrooms will use luxurious blush tiles and champagne tapware. We are also about to start a Moroccan influenced design which includes a sage green kitchen with turned legs to the breakfast bar and a textured tile splashback.
There is a sway back to the traditional arch way and I am loving them. Arches originated from Roman engineering and were reserved for colosseums, palaces, churches and cathedrals. The reference to the grandeur of these places is now included in our homes. Our home is our castle right? So before you get the sledge hammer to take out those 70’s arches, think again. They can be a real design feature!

Tapware has also really come a long way and we will continue to see gold, champagne gold or brushed nickel.

So as you can tell I’m really excited about 2020, colour and texture and shape makes for an exciting home renovation.
