Exterior trends we’re loving for 2020

2019 is coming to a close, which means it’s time to start looking ahead and making plans for next year. The beginning of the new year will bring plenty of exciting new trends to consider—both inside and  outside of the home. The following post will cover some of our favourite exterior design trends for 2020—and beyond!

Making the most of your outdoor space year-round: More and more people are working to make their gardens usable throughout the year. After all, if you have the space— why not make the most of it? We will see a focus on outdoor dining rooms, weather-proof outdoor lounge areas, etc. This is a great trend to embrace if your home is tight on space because it expands your living area without the expense of an extension.

Natural wooden elements: Natural wooden accents are set to come back in a big way in 2020. To get the trend, consider using natural wooden features around your exteriors— doors, furniture, decking, sheds, and fences are all great examples of how wood can be used in your exteriors. The natural colour of the wood is timeless and goes with any colour palette!

Greenery: Greens are big when it comes to colours both inside and outside the home. Try our shade Olive for a gorgeous and on-trend paint colour youll love. But we’re not just talking about your walls. When we say greenery, we also mean your exterior landscaping! We love lush greenery around your exteriors. Display potted plants and topiaries, plant trees and bushes, embrace vines and leaves, etc.

Statement doors: Entryways are making a big impact this coming year and doors are getting darker and bolder. We’re seeing a peaked interest in blue and black statement doors and we’re loving it! How can you go wrong with either one of these classic colours. Pair your stylish new door with accessories such as eccentric knockers, unique knobs, interesting house numbers, etc for a look that is totally your own, and a vibe that screams style. Try our shade Oxford Blue to create the look!

Minimal maintenance: Exteriors in 2020 are also about convenience. In today’s busy world many of us don’t have much time to spend mowing the lawn or trimming the hedges, so a lot of 2020’s hottest looks are created with convenience in mind. Plastic grasses, easily-maintained plants and hard-wearing materials are just a few of the ways people are making their homes simpler to care for.
