Building a home is expensive, so you want to get it right the first time around, and that means doing your research on current trends in building, design and materials. 2020 promises to deliver a new building design trends that may influence how you plan your Home.
As it was in last year’s home design trends, sustainability continues to be an important concept for 2020. Sustainable design will be manifested in the coming year in several ways.
Natural materials such as brick, stone, and tile come from the earth and have enjoyed popularity in home design for centuries.
Other sustainable elements that will be popular in the coming year include:
- Materials such as rattan, sisal, hemp and terracotta
- Marble will be hot
- Carpet flooring, walls and even ceilings (made from natural fibers)
- Bringing nature inside
We all know that the open concept home has been the gold standard for the last year. While open concept offers the most room to roam, it still has a few issues. There can be such a thing as too much openness in a home, so architects have learned to create defined spaces without using walls. Segmented spaces, which use architectural features like sunken rooms, varying ceiling heights and other features help to divide the space while keeping it open.
Smart Home Concept
The idea of a smart home is no longer something that’s limited to the Uber-wealthy or technologically inclined. The smart home market revolves around green home solutions, which include smart energy management systems; and follow a minimal usage of energy and monitoring of appliances. With the increasing awareness about energy efficiency and the optimum utilization of the same, a majority of home owners are driven towards the smart home concept that not only offers better energy management but also provides security, convenience, and comfort.
Maximizing the Outdoors
Balconies, terraces, and patios will be reintroduced as major design elements. These can be enjoyed throughout the year if properly conditioned and taken care of. Glass curtains will pick up in popularity to allow for spaces to open during good weather.
Attention to Kitchen and Baths
2020 will give prominence to kitchens and baths. The kitchen remains to be the center of household activities. It has evolved over the years to be the focus of the home. Even as the housing market is recovering, architects and designers are said to emphasize this.
Bathrooms, on the other hand, are no longer just spaces for grooming and personal care. It has developed into a space of relaxation and recovery after a hard day’s work. The spike in bathtub and Jacuzzi sales indicate more and more people are taking the time to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with the self as they unwind in their baths.
Architecture and design are changing for the better. As we welcome the new decade, these trends and some others will prove to be game-changers in the construction industry.
