Are you thinking of building a new home or remodeling? Here are four new design trends for 2020 that will add style, beauty and convenience to your home.
Sliding barn doors now come in an enormous variety of styles, colors and wood species. They can be contemporary and elegant or rustic with old style charm. The hardware finishes and styles are endless. The increase in popularity of barn doors has created a wider variety of looks available, they have become more like furniture or decor than doors to enhance the look and feel of living space.
Darker Millwork is in for enhancing warmth and that includes wood floors like these. If budget is an issue, there are many luxury vinyl plank flooring products (LVP) available at almost half the price and do a great job of emulating real wood floors and the color/style options are almost limitless. LVP can also be patterned like real wood and is extremely durable. This also goes for Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT).
A beautiful and popular design trend is wood face fire places. Rich wood products make a beautiful fireplace face around the firebox. It adds a unique and very rustic old world look. With gas fireplaces the distance required from the metal firebox to combustible materials is much less. This allows for many more styles and feels when it comes to modern day fireplaces. The one featured above is made of aged barn wood to achieve a charming and original look.
A popular and convenient design trend is built in dog washes. When you walk your dirty dog through the house to get to the sink it is usually a filthy mess. A built in dog wash station will alleviate that problem. Furthermore, with a built-in dog wash station, we can build it right next to a door. When you get back from a muddy walk, the washing station is conveniently located by a door or mudroom. Having a built in dog wash station also creates a designated dog area where all their toys, leashes, and other things can be stored together, keeping life more organized.
