You may not have plans to move in the New Year, but it could be the perfect opportunity to start fresh by switching up the interior of your home. Whether this means fresh new paint, a renovation of your kitchen, or incorporating some attractive new design trends through furniture and décor pieces, the options are endless and can range from simple to complex. In fact, you can completely revamp the look and feel of a room without breaking the bank while you do it.
How Paint Can Change the Feel of a Room
Can Make a Small Space Appear Bigger
Yes, you read that right. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for making that normally small space, feel roomy and spacious. A fresh coat of paint instantly creates the illusion of more room. Couple of tips? Try an icy blue colour or light cream; these tones will reflect light which will automatically make the room feel larger. Painting your trim and moldings in white hues will also make a difference, as it will help to create depth by making your walls appear further away.
Can Add Character
Alternatively, you can give a room some added character by painting a featured wall in a bold or bright shade. It’ll give the room a cozy and funky feel immediately changing the overall mood. Before you choose your colour, however, consider the function of the room; your kitchen might benefit from a warmer tone, while your bedroom may look more appealing with some edgy wallpaper.
If you can’t decide what colour to use for your featured wall, think about your current accent pieces. If you have a rug, chair cushion, or other décor pieces in a bold colour such as a deep blue, why not use this to find the perfect tone that will pull the entire room together nicely.
Whether you prefer modern or traditional, minimalist or elaborate, the paint colours for 2020 will meet the unique tastes of every homeowner!
Here are the gorgeous hues we will be seeing more of in the New Year according to interior designers:
- Classic Blue
- Burnt Orange
- Hunter Green

Gray is slowly fading out
While gray is still a common neutral shade of choice, designers agree that gray will slowly move towards an accent colour, rather than a main hue. Warmer colours will instead be bigger than ever this year; think blue, blush pink, orange, and sage green.
Wallpaper will be used more for texture and depth
Think botanical designs in bathrooms for 2020! Wallpaper trends will be more adventurous in the New Year than ever before. While classic choices will never be out of style, people will be bolder with patterns and designs and where they will apply their wallpaper – i.e.) the ceiling aka fifth wall.
Continued use of plants and organic elements
Attention plant lovers: You can breathe a sigh of relief because greenery isn’t going anywhere! One of the simplest and most effective ways to give a room some new life is through adding some flowers, plants, branches or other organic décor pieces that give it that rustic, natural vibe. Not only is it inexpensive, it looks amazing in just about any room. Plus, it immediate adds texture to a room which is all the hype moving forward into 2020.
