Houzz, the leading platform for home renovation and design, has named colourful kitchens and statement bathrooms amongst its home design trend predictions for 2020. The predictions, which have been revealed following an in-depth analysis of top searches and other site data, also saw black interiors, sustainable materials and bamboo forecast as trends in 2020, alongside green schemes and navy bedrooms.
According to Houzz, the interiors platform has seen increased amounts of colourful kitchen photos uploaded to the site. The company suggest that homeowners are choosing cabinets in a range of blues and greens to heathery purples, and also observed that one of the new search terms this year was ‘yellow kitchen’. ‘Cream kitchen’ also made an appearance in the rising search terms list, marking a step away from the classic white kitchen.
A separate set of Houzz research found that bathrooms were one of the most renovated rooms in the UK last year, and the company has suggested that homeowners are ‘upping the ante’ when it comes to updating them. According to Houzz, next year will see more luxury finishes, statement tiles and bold colours in bathrooms, and even pastel-coloured sanitaryware, in soft pinks, greens and blues.
