Home Makeover for the New Decade

When it comes to a new year, and particularly the start of a new decade, this is an opportunity to refresh and renew many different areas of your life. That’s when an extreme makeover at your home is a great way to bring a fresh perspective into your life.

This can be anything from putting circular staircases on your property to refreshing the paintwork and fittings.

We look at the top 5 trends for making over your home in the coming years.

Vintage Touches

One of the things we are going to see emerging in the coming decade is an increase in vintage accents creeping into your home furnishings.

This will see some classic detailing emerging in furniture design. Spooled legs and spindling are making a comeback these are things that were last seen in the late 1800s and early 1900s. But the pairing of modern and vintage is a classic look that is here to stay.

Vintage is atemporal, but you can be a bit riskier and enhance the room with a modern interior staircase too. Why not? Check Fontanot shop for more inspiring ideas.

Navy Blue

Classic Blue has just been voted as ‘Pantone colour of the year for 2020’. This is a shade of Navy Blue and it is likely to start popping up all over the place. It is a great colour for providing accents in rooms and pairs well with white to give a very clean look.

This works well as a replacement for black to provide a softer contrast to white which still clearly delineates the areas. So, freshen up your cupboard doors or maybe a kitchen island with a hint of classic blue.

Floral Wallpaper

Another throwback fashion touch that is coming back is the floral wallpaper. If the thought of it makes you flinch as you remember the horror stories of the seventies and eighties then you shouldn’t neglect to have another look.

Modern floral patterns are fresh and inviting and can liven up many different spaces. This is thanks to larger-scale patterns and even the incorporation of metallic colours into the design. These are particularly popular in bathrooms.

High-Contrast Décor

This is a trend that is right on point now. So, if you have ever fancied a chance to paint something black or a deep colour then go for it. This is a change from the previous prevalence of white everywhere.

So rather than go full change, then a splash of high contrast will bring life to a room. The splashes of colour will draw the eye and liven things up well.

Non-White Kitchens

As mentioned above the previous trend was all white, and nowhere was this more evident than in the kitchen.

This is changing rapidly; you now want to makeover the kitchen, so it is not white at all.

Pale shades are still in form, so there are a lot of pale greys and blues emerging along with high contrast worktops and handles. Natural wood paired with off-white is a great combination and makes the kitchen light and airy without having to resort to all white.

Final Thoughts

Now is the time to make a change and freshen up your home, it is perfect for the new decade.
