Colors, Textures, Materials, And More: A Look At Aesthetic Home Trends For 2020

2020 aesthetic home trends are all about layering colors, textures, materials and styles for a cohesive, cozy look that makes you love coming home every day. The great thing about mixing and layering trends is it’s so easy to tailor it to your unique style and taste.

Bathroom Trends

Bathrooms are always a great room to update because as one of the smallest rooms in your home, they’re also one of the least expensive to upgrade. Solid surface countertops are a great option to give the room a new feel. You can also upgrade your flooring, add new fixtures, paint, and even add new tile or wainscoting for an updated aesthetic. You can stack different types of towels, add lots of textural rugs, and hang framed artwork to create the layered look that is popular for 2020. 

Let there be Light 

Light is so transformative to a space, but it is one of the most overlooked elements in home decorating. There are smart home options that can connect to Google Home or Alexa, or just your smartphone, making it easy to change the color and impact of your lighting. Light fixtures also come in a wide variety of styles, from under cabinet lighting to unique statement pieces that become the focal point of the room. No matter what your style, there are lighting options for you, but remember to add a variety of light sources for the best 

Mixing Modern with Traditional 

By mixing modern textures and features with traditional elements, like faux wood beams, Turkish rugs, or elegant hardware, you can make your home feel eclectic and pulled together. Mixing modern design with traditional elements can make a space feel more welcoming, and it’s easier to incorporate all of your possessions into a single space. 

Exterior Upgrades 

Updating the exterior of your home can mean doing something as small as painting your front door a fun, bright color, or a larger project, like upgrading to beautiful wood siding. Things you can do that will make the outside of your home look brand new include: 

Updating your Roof 

Updating your roof to metal can be cost prohibitive, but asphalt shingle alternatives are great options and will give your home a noticeable facelift. 

New Landscaping

You can also add new landscaping, such as permanent planters, new shrubs to line the driveway, or even baskets of annual flowers on the porch or hanging from the roof. Landscaping really makes a house look and feel like a home. 

Add Pathways

Stone or even gravel or mulch pathways can make your front or backyard feel like a secret garden. They can lead to your front door, a gazebo or sitting area, a hammock, a swing, or even a vegetable garden. 

Exterior Extras 

Putting in a new garage door, or even put up a custom house number display can change the entire vibe of the exterior of your home. 

How to Warm Up a Room’s Aesthetic 

Adding layers of fabric, rugs, and soft textures will really warm up a room’s aesthetic and make it more pleasing to walk into. You can add new curtains, throw blankets, pillows, and rugs to create a variety of textures and the feeling of softness. 

By adding more layers and upgrading even small elements in your home, you will be able to stay on trend for 2020 and make your living space look like it should be featured in a magazine. Combining trends and styles makes for an eclectic, stylish home that you will be proud to show off to friends, family and neighbors!
