FIVE INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2020
We could all use a little something to look forward to at the moment.
If, like many of us, your flair for interior design has flourished during lockdown, take a look at our five top interior design trends happening this year.
Any trend list worth its salt in almost any industry will likely make a mention of sustainable materials, and interior design is no different. This year, it’s not just about what’s in your home – it’s about how it came to be there.
Recycled materials are becoming more prominent not only in terms of belongings, but the actual construction of buildings themselves. From repurposing everyday items (think old wooden ladders into bookcases; an antique suitcase fashioned into a chair) to sourcing recycled paint and reusable brushes, sustainable materials are at the forefront of top interior design trends this year.
We’ve all been cooped up for so long now, we’ve really had to get to know ourselves. In our homes, we’re going to be creating spaces which tell a story through unique pieces and abstract décor, rather than stifling with matching sets and rigid narratives.
Contrasting textures and materials combined with a cleverly engineered layout are what make eclectic style so pleasing to the eye – and so difficult to nail. In 2020, the interior design world will see a trend emerging of eclecticism across workplaces and homes.
In 2020 (and hopefully beyond), interior design will become evermore focused on developing environmentally-viable interior design trends which can persevere for the long-term. Optimising space as a means to achieving the above is something we’re seeing more and more often; the era of ‘bigger is better’ has officially passed.
From reduced energy bills to lowering our carbon footprints, corporates and individuals alike are trying to optimise the space they have, rather than looking to expand. And, simply put, less space means less space to fill. Environmentally conscious interior design trends are trends we can get behind.
BOLD DETAILS, CONTRASTING DESIGNS
Feature walls are a thing of the past – 2020 will see the advent of the feature ceiling! Look forward to bold patterns, striking colours and diverse textures making an appearance in the interior design world this year. Moving away from the monochromatic and into the art décor, expect to see daring patterns and ideas coming to life in our homes and offices.
From brightly painted wall trim to wallpaper – yes, we said it: wallpaper! – and contrasting fabrics on furniture throughout, now’s the time to get creative.
THE LIVED-IN LOOK
Whether workplace or residence, people are gravitating towards stylish yet distinctly homely feeling spaces. Layer old and new, modern and period, to tell the real story of where you live, work and play. Pre-loved pieces have so much more love to give; implement some extra-comfy items of furniture in the board room for an amenable, open-feeling space, or eat dinner at the table each night wondering who sat there before you.
Whether redecorating, building or simply thinking about some new pieces of furniture, we’re excited to help our clients achieve some of these interior design trends this year. As we come out of the other side of the pandemic, Solent Interiors will be taking extra care while we work to maintain exceptional safety protocols as per the government’s latest and ongoing advice on Covid-19.
It’s 2020: we live in a time where newer means better and we’re always looking for the next best thing; the latest and greatest. As humans, we’re programmed to seek out inspiring and stimulating environments, which is important to consider in a commercial or educational setting.
Joinery means any way in which wood is connected together – whilst a carpenter is largely involved in construction, a joiner’s job is to design and fit the pieces which bring the place together.

With the world returning to ‘normal’ and trying to move past Covid-19, for many of us that means returning to the office. Whilst working from home has its benefits, there’s no denying that the buzz of the office can’t be beaten when it comes to driving your business forward.
