5 Home Interior Design Trends to Watch Out For in 2020

Colourful combination of patterned wallpaper and upholstery for living room

It’s not just a new year that is coming up, but also a completely new decade. The year 2020 is just around the corner and it’s already showing us signs of brilliance.

From fabulous fabrics to fantastic furniture, there is more than enough reason to say goodbye to the old and say hello to the new inspiring interior design trends.

Incredible Interiors

A brand-new year brings about a lot of changes. Aside from personal resolutions, you may also want to see a change in the people and places around you. One of the most common things that get a dose of transformation is the home space.

Whether this space is big or small, there always seems to be an unexplained feeling of joy that comes with seeing one’s own home changed for the better. It doesn’t even matter if you just installed new flooring or completely renovated a whole section of your house; the feeling of buoyancy is undeniable. It can be truly uplifting to turn something old into something new for that much-needed fresh start for the new year.

So as we say farewell to tribal prints, statement ceilings, and Living Coral (Pantone’s previous color of the year) – trends that have ruled 2019 – let’s prepare our smiles as we welcome all the fashionable and up-to-the-minute trends that will shape the interior spaces of 2020.

Get ready with that swatch of awe-inspiring home wallpaper, dial the number of your trusty interior designer, and gather the whole family for an intense discussion on which of your old belongings will stay and which ones will need to fly away.

Here are some of the interior design trends that will dominate the interior halls and spaces of 2020:

1. Brilliant Blue

The Pantone Color Institute – one of the influential voices when it comes to aesthetics – has announced that Classic Blue is their Color of the Year for 2020. With this declaration, we can expect different shades and interpretations of this color.

As a new era begins, it is indeed a comfort to choose a color that is familiar to most, if not all, of humankind. Fortunately for those who stick to the trends, blue is a versatile color. It can provide a sophisticated backdrop to other interior design pieces or an elegant accent that adds a royal touch.

From indigo skies to azure waters, the variations of the color blue are almost limitless. While some purists will stick to the classic, some may push the envelope and opt for more adventurous shades. So whether you choose to use navy as your statement wall or add touches of cobalt to your kitchen counters, blue is a pigment that will evoke feelings of calm, serenity, and productivity.

2. Comfy Fabrics

If you’re one to cuddle up in a corner with a good book, then this year is the best time to invest in cozy fabrics. Go for imperfect leather, shearling, or soft and textured mohair fabrics that can be used as accents for your favorite chair or window seat.

Not only are these comfy fabrics fantastic to use as snug embellishments in your interior space, but they can also be used as upholstery fabrics for chairs, sofas, or pillows. You can also use fabrics to dress up your walls and windows. Experiment with colors and prints to get maximum impact and enjoyment. For example, mellow yellow tones give a pop of life when combined with neutral tones of beige or gray.

Choose fabrics that are simply delicious to touch and that luxuriously caress your skin. More importantly, go for upholstery textiles that are pretty but also practical. There are fabrics available in the market that are machine-washable or pre-treated to repel stains. There are even flame-retardant ones, too.

3. Curvy Furniture

Curvaceous couches, curved cocktail tables, or a slinky art piece or two – these rounded furniture pieces can greatly soften the look of your interior space. For 2020, you can do away with sharp lines and severe corners. Instead, go for undulating lines and stylish curves that will give your area a sense of fluidity.

You can invest in a curved sofa or a round coffee table, or get a free-form kitchen counter as a statement piece in the middle of your dining area. Tastefully combine it with other trends such as touches of the color blue or the use of soft and snugly fabrics, and you can be sure to feel a reinvigorating vibe in your abode.

4. Flowery Wallpaper

If you want to brighten up your home as the year enters, then you can opt to install floral wallpapers. The vibrant designs of these blooms can greatly affect the mood of the room as well as its occupants. From elfin florets to giant flower heads, designs can range from the classic patterns to bold and daring options.

These floral wallpapers can significantly amplify the visual volume of your interiors such as the powder room, walk-in closet, or foyer. You can plaster it all around the room if you’re using demure designs or choose a statement panel and stick on a plucky print.

5. Statement Floorings

If you’re tired of walking the same floor for years, then 2020 gives you the chance to finally walk away with a new design inspiration.

Statement floorings will be in vogue, so you can start looking at a variety of options. Selections range from stylish carpet tiles, vinyl flooring, or wall-to-wall flooring solutions that can decidedly enhance a room’s look and feel.

From dressing up your study’s floor with bold patterns or mixing and matching colors and prints using carpet tiles, you can play with several designs that best suit your needs and budget. You can also opt to use large rugs or cover a section with artistic carpet tiling.

The Beauty Inside

Whether you’re going for a soft look with floral wallpapers or you want to make a daring statement with avant-garde floorings, interior design touch-ups can greatly add to the excitement of welcoming a new year. What’s more important, however, is your positive attitude and outlook so that no matter how big or small your interior design makeover project is, you will have that electrifying fervor to go through with it.

How to Choose the Right Sofa Upholstery Fabric

White upholstered sofa - corner details and texture

Furniture has a huge impact on interior design. Changing up your sofa, for example, can bring an entirely new look and vibe to your living room. But with all the different fabrics and the sheer number of design options to choose from, it can be daunting to pick one that could be the perfect fit for your home.

Before you head to your local furniture store to buy a new sofa or have one custom-made, you must first determine what fabric is best suited to your home’s design. To help you out, here are five expert tips for choosing the perfect upholstery fabric to transform not only your sofa, but the entire look of your living room as well:

1. Set a Budget

Your budget is the first factor that can affect your buying strategy when shopping around for upholstery material.

Remember to plan to spend the right amount to achieve functionality, aesthetics, and convenience. You can also do some research on the cost of maintenance for each sofa upholstery material before you decide on a budget to ensure that you’ll be happy with the outcome of your decision in the long run.

2. Think About Longevity

Durability and longevity are two more crucial factors you must consider when picking a cover material for your sofa. When deciding based on durability, remember that patterns that are woven into the fabric stay longer compared to those that were only printed on it. Fabrics with tighter weaves and a higher thread count (the number of threads per square inch) also tend to hold up longer.

Of course, you’ll also need to consider who will be using the sofa as well as where and how it will be used. Keep in mind that durability may vary depending on where the sofa will be placed, who will use it, and many other aspects of your life, including the presence of children or pets in the house. In short, your decision should also be based on your lifestyle.

This brings us to the next item.

3. Consider Where and How the Sofa Will Be Used

How you plan to use your sofa should also dictate the material you choose for its upholstery. Will it be placed in an area where you’ll be entertaining guests frequently and where the sofa can potentially get spilled on? Or is it going to be used in a room that sees a lot less traffic, like a home office or bedroom?

Once you determine the area where it will be placed, you’ll also need to learn about the different characteristics each fabric has to offer in relation to the sofa’s location.

For example, textured blends like wool are the better choice for sofas in rooms that are seldom used. If you have pets, your best bet is a smooth cotton fabric that can be easily washed when necessary. Meanwhile, durable materials like blends of microfiber and corduroy can be used in living rooms and other places where you entertain guests.

Take note, however, that dark-colored fabrics – especially natural ones like wool – should never be placed under direct sunlight to prevent fading. So, if you’re planning to add a sofa near a window or door, you can choose a sofa that is either made from a fade-resistant material or one with a lighter shade.

4. Match the Fabric With Both the Furniture and Interior Design

The sofa fabric you choose must not only match the décor, flooring, and wallpaper of the space, but also the character and style of the furniture it is covering.

Some types of fabrics can be used for a more formal setup, while others are best suited for casual-looking rooms. Pick one that matches the mood and overall vibe of the space where the sofa is to be placed.

Taking the scale of the pattern into account is also necessary. Make sure that the patterns complement the furniture’s size as well as the expanse of the room. Keep bigger, bolder patterns in larger areas while muted tones are the better choices for smaller areas.

5. Get the Right Hue

Another primary consideration when picking a sofa material is its color. As mentioned earlier, the darkness or brightness of the hue should depend on where it is placed. It should also be in accordance with what your interior design looks like.

Determine whether you want your sofa to blend in or stand out in the room. If you picked the latter, going with a bold and dramatic color for a bigger piece is your best bet. If it’s the former, then you should choose fabrics with neutral hues and muted patterns.

Aside from taking note of what the room currently looks like, you should also plan for the future. This means that you must consider whether the color of the sofa upholstery fabric can still complement the space when you choose to redesign the room. In this case, bold and bright might be a bit difficult to work with, so it is best to go with neutrals.

Remember to ask yourself whether you can live with your color choice over the long term. Otherwise, shades of grey and brown may be the better option since they blend better with most interior design principles.

If you’re looking to match your sofa with the walls, there’s a way to avoid the need to change upholstery fabric every time you change your wallpapers. The key is to opt for neutrals and simply mix up the sofa’s look with swappable accessories like cushions and throws.

The Fabric Matters

The upholstery material used for a sofa affects the way it looks as well as its longevity. Be sure to think about it thoroughly first before making a decision. You can opt to browse the internet for available upholstery materials and designs or visit an NGC Nafees India showroom near you.
