6 Bedroom Trends That Are Catching On In 2020

Is your home older? You aren't alone. More than half of the homes on the market right now are more than 40 years old.

While older homes can be charming, stale interior design isn't a great look. Update the look of your whole home this year by updating your bedroom.

Renovating your bedroom can have a huge impact on the entire house. The bedroom should be a place for relaxing and unwinding. By giving it a makeover, you can make it cozier and feel more like your own space.

If you're hoping to upgrade your bedroom this year, try out these six bedroom trends that will be all the rage in 2020.

1. Think Differently With Your Bed

The bed is the centerpiece of the bedroom and arguably one of the most important pieces of furniture in your entire house. If you want to revamp your bedroom, start with the bed.

One great way to give your bedroom and home a new look is to take a different approach to the bed itself. Don't be afraid to try something a little different, such as a canopy bed. Canopy beds will be big in 2020, with more people opting for this elegant and interesting style in their bedroom.

Canopy beds themselves are getting a makeover for the new decade. Massive headboards and heavy drapery are out in favor of lighter fabrics and an overall sleeker look. If you look into canopy beds, you may be surprised by the range of styles you encounter, one of which is likely a great look for your bedroom.

2. Go Green

In 2020, going green will mean more than just being environmentally conscious. People are going green in all sorts of ways, including having more real plants in their homes.

Real plants can add life and freshness to your home. And they are appropriate for every room of the house, including the bedroom.

If you're unsure, you can choose hardy plants that require very little maintenance. Consider potted plants, hanging plants and other indoor varieties. Whatever you do, avoid the plastic. Fake plants are a bad look in 2020.

3. Embrace the Blues

Blue is going to be a hugely popular color in 2020. A room painted blue has massive appeal. In fact, Zillow reports that a blue room can add up to $5,400 more to the expected sale price of your home.

Regardless of whether you plan to sell and contact moving companies to relocate this year, consider blue tones for the walls if you are renovating a bedroom. Blue is calming and comes in a wide range of hues and shades that appeal to the eye. Blue walls can make your bedroom a more calming, soothing space.

4. Don't Be Afraid of Mirrors

Mirrors are a great addition to a renovated bedroom. They can make your bedroom feel brighter and bigger. A stylish mirror can also be an interesting piece in and of itself.

If you are adding mirrors to a room, you can either hang them up or just lean them against the walls. Either way you go, they will still make a room feel more refreshing and airy than it did before.

5. Create a Reading Nook

The bedroom doesn't have to only be for sleeping. If you have the space for it, a reading nook can transform your bedroom and add additional functionality to the space.

A reading nook is great for making your bedroom a space where you actually spend some leisure time. Pick a big, cozy chair where you can curl up for hours with a favorite book. Add pillows, blankets and cozy fabrics. A small bookshelf against the wall can add an interesting conversation piece that completes the nook.

Whether you're adapting an existing corner of your bedroom or you're making structural changes on your new construction home to create a reading nook, remember to maximize comfort. Sure, it's supposed to enhance the look of your bedroom, but it will be noticeable if it isn't useful. A functional reading nook will add personality and charm to your bedroom.

6. Don't Be Afraid of Floral

Alongside the real plants, floral prints and wallpapers are catching on in 2020. People are including more plants in all aspects of interior design.

Don't be afraid of a pop of color and print via a floral design. It could transform a wall in a bedroom or add lightness to a bedspread or piece of furniture. You could also incorporate florals into the design of your master bathroom to continue the airy, fresh design element. About 90% of homeowners change the style of their master bathroom during an upgrade and adding florals there can help carry the theme of your master bedroom throughout your home.

Find the Trends That are Right for You

Not every trend speaks to every homeowner. This is just a small selection of the trends taking off in 2020, but there are plenty more. Find what speaks to you, your budget, and your design aesthetic and don't be afraid to go for it. You might be surprised by the direction your renovation journey takes you.
