Considering redecorating your kitchen or bathroom for 2020? Take inspiration from the trends that we've spotted so far, which are relevant for both spaces in the home. 

Brass finishes

Move over copper, this year it's time to go for gold! Brass finishes in the kitchen and bathroom bring a sense of luxury and grandeur to your space, whether it be a showerhead, sink or tap. Choose gold metallic accents to warm up your kitchen or bathroom and to give it that 2020 feel.

Dark glamour

Dark spaces on the whole are a huge trend for 2020. But, it's important to make it feel less dingy and more glamorous by incorporating luxe finishes and a pop of colour. In the bathroom, black or charcoal grey walls and tiles would work perfectly and in the kitchen consider dark cabinets or a granite worktop for that dark glamorous look.   

Contrasting tiles

Last year, metro tiles were a big deal and they still are for 2020, but they've had a colourful makeover! Rather than opting for plain metro tiles that are laid horizontally, mix it up and place them vertically and choose a colour that contrasts either with your kitchen cabinets, or bathroom furniture.

Loud wallpaper

When decorating your kitchen or bathroom this year, think outside of the box and consider opting for wallpaper. Wallpaper is normally a popular choice for bedrooms or living rooms, however its made its way into the rest of the home for 2020.  Wallpaper is a great way of expressing your personal style and adding pattern to a space, specifically loud and over the top designs.


Neutral Kitchen Scheme

Wellbeing in the home and reflecting this through our interior choices is a trend that keeps popping up for 2020. A wellness-focused space is created by making mindful choices, which have the effect of calm and relaxation. A neutral colour palette with tactile textures are key factors as well as the space being totally decluttered.
