Interior Design: Watch for These 7 Interior Design Trends in 2020

As 2019 comes to a close, good interior designers are looking to the horizon of 2020. Several trends help inform interior design style in 2020 – including an increased emphasis on minimalism and prizing cleanliness over clutter. Indeed, clean lines and modern themes will play a role in 2020 – with some exception, of course. Here are some of the interior design trends you can be on the lookout for in 2020.
 

Grandmillenial Style

So-called Grandmillennial style is a celebration of both old and new. The look involves combining old world elements – such as natural fiber rugs, topiaries, and scallops – with modern twists such as clean line furniture and avante garde furniture. And, of course, custom cut options never go out of style and can transform your space. 
 

Bold Monochromes

Grey, grey and more grey are out. For the new decade, don’t be afraid of bold monochromes. Rich hues such as cobalt blue and emerald green convey elegance and pave the way for warmer toned accents such as gold.

Mixing the Old and the New

For 2020, a little eclecticism is a good thing. Don’t be afraid to mix and match locally coveted souvenirs with sleek modern design elements. Remember, a home should tell a story about the person living in it – make sure that story is as vibrant as the client.
 

A Dark Painted Door

Adding a rich color to an interior foot adds both depth and character to a space. As an artistic element, it can effectively replace the need for more wall art. Some rich hardware and a flawless rug pull the whole room look together.

Antique Accents

Goodbye, industrial aesthetic – we’re replacing your coldness with a warmth that only antiquing can provide. Warmer hardware, accents with patina, even a tapestry or two – these homes can automatically make a home feel cozier. Antiqued or distressed rugs help a house feel more like a home by providing a lived-in look.
 

Performance Fabric

It looks like 2020 is the year where functionality takes the edge over form. A truly remarkable piece is one that accomplishes both at the same time. Performance fabrics – such as those that withstand the daily wear and tear of children and pets – are in vogue. Families are often willing to pay more for materials that will stand the test of time and the whatever stains their daily lives throw at them. Today’s performance fabrics can withstand the mightiest of messes while still maintaining a chic aesthetic.
 

High Contrast Color Combos

While monochrome is in, so are dynamic duos that make a powerful statement when used together. Black and white always make for a dramatic yin and yang, but don’t forget to add in layers of warmth for richness and depth.
 
In 2020, interior designers can expect to look past the tired old trends of cool neutrals and everything in a house looking “just so.” Homeowners are accepting that their living spaces can look lived in, though cleanliness will be prized over clutter. Antiquing patinas and warm accents help break up the swaths of neutral tones. Combining the old with the new will be the main theme entering a new decade. Contact us to learn more!

Carpet Tiles and Planks: Expert Guidance

One of the many options you have in designing your home’s flooring is carpet tiles and planks. You can arrange carpet tiles and planks of different textures and colors to form any pattern you desire. Learn more about how to install and choose carpet tiles for your house’s flooring needs.

 

Installation

First, you need to know the basics of installing carpet tiles and plans on your floor. You will need your tiles, a tool to cut them with, adhesive like stickers or tape, measuring tape, chalk, and a framing square. Make sure the floor is clean from debris and dirt, and let the tiles acclimate to the room first.  
  • Use measuring tape and chalk to mark the middle of the room.
  • Trace lines across the room and use the framing square to ensure they are square.
  • Use your first carpet tiles to plan a simple layout along the lines.
  • Place double-sided tape or any adhesive on corners of tiles and lay them down.
  • Continue to lay tiles and connect them to create the desired pattern.
  • Trim along the walls if there is extra tile material.

Patterns

In order to take full advantage of the properties of carpet tiles, make sure you mix and match different colors and shapes to create your preferred pattern, whether making an area rug or complete carpeting. Remember to not just create a fitting pattern within the floor, but also something that complements the rest of the room, particularly in a larger rug or wall-to-wall carpeting.  

Material Choice

When it comes to choosing carpet tiles and planks for a specific room, you must consider the strength of the material and the wear from the foot traffic. In addition, keep in mind the material backing your carpet tiles, such as fiberglass, vinyl, recycled vinyl, and urethane, as well as how it will affect the floors. Backing in general keeps the floor stable and protects the material from moisture.   Do you want to experiment with your own carpet tiles and planks? Koeckritz Rugs offers Peel and Stick Carpet Tile Planks, which are easy to install, clean and create your own pattern. Order yours today.

Four Easy Ways to Keep Your Rug Looking Like New

Rugs are excellent investments because they can last forever with proper cleaning and care. While it’s important to occasionally deep-clean your favorite rugs, it’s just as important (if not more so) to keep up a daily cleaning regime. Luckily, keeping a rug like new doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. Here are four easy things rug-owners can do daily to improve the appearance and lifespan of their rugs. Vacuum Regularly Rugs and carpets are prone to accumulating dust on their surface quickly and easily. Daily vacuuming will ensure these substances don’t remain trapped in the carpeting fibers and cause deterioration and dull colors. Routine Carpet Cleaning While many rug-owners don’t get their carpet cleaned professionally until it becomes stained, it is best to have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year. The longer you permit dirt and stains to remain in a carpet, the harder it is to get them removed. Routine carpet cleanings can help purge dirt and bacteria embedded deep inside your rug, which can extend its functional lifetime. Take Swift Action on Stains Whenever your carpeting is stained, it is important to blot the affected area with a clean dry cloth as soon as possible. If the spill sits on top of your rug for too long, it can become permanent. For the best chance of removing a stain without damaging your carpet, call a professional carpet cleaner. Be Cautious with Carpet Cleaning Products While there are numerous carpet cleaning products available at your local stores, not all of them are safe to use on all kinds of carpeting. Many of these products might contain harmful chemicals with the potential to damage your carpet permanently. Before using a store-bought carpet cleaning solution, always read the directions carefully and conduct research on the product to ensure it is safe to use on your rugs.
