Top 5 interior design trends you need to know in 2020


As any design or DIY enthusiast knows, the start of the new year is an exciting time.

The summer months are the perfect time to look at your home with fresh eyes and plan out any home improvement projects you want to take on in the coming year. Maybe you want to freshen up some rooms with a lick of paint, or add atmosphere with new furniture or drapes. Or perhaps you’ve got something a bit more ambitious planned, like opening your home to the outdoors with new windows or doors.

Whatever your plans, we’ve partnered with Sydney home building experts Better Built Homes to bring you the essential guide to interior design trends for 2020.

Get inspired with home design styles that pair perfectly with Wideline's residential, designer and architectural ranges of windows & doors and start planning your next home improvement project today!


90º Corner Join Windows in Black Matt

1. Decadent Sanctuary

Topping our list of top home design trends for 2020 are luxe interiors that expertly combine high-end with homey. Trending interior paint colours include earthy hues offset by bold jewel-tone accents like ruby red, sapphire blue, and emerald green. The resulting high contrast palette makes this home decor trend ideal for emphasising your home’s architectural details while highlighting your own personal style.

Dark grey is a popular base tone for this trend, and echoes the hues of classic Australiana design and flora and fauna. We recommend incorporating it through subtle elements such as windows and door frames in our Black Matt, Monument Matt, Basalt Matt, and other shades on the darker end of the spectrum.

2. Earthy Retreat

Aussies love indoor outdoor living, and 2020 is no exception. This year, bring the great outdoors into your home with rich, warm hues like red, deep brown, and ochre. For an outdoor living space that stimulates all your senses, we recommend adding tactile natural materials like leather, timber, and rattan.

Keep it contemporary alongside Wideline range windows and doors in cool, modern colours like Pearl White Gloss, Surfmist Matt, Dune Matt, and Anodic Silver Grey Matt. For more colour inspiration, check out our Wideline Colour Selector.

3. Hamptons Home

One of the most consistently popular interior design trends, beachside bohemian design gets an Australian twist in the new year with soft-toned native timbers and shades of muted grey and blue. Think airy, light, and unpretentious.

Invite the outdoors in with French Doors, or drench your interiors in natural light via double-hung windows in aluminium or timber. Just don’t forget matching insect screens to prevent any unwanted guests!

4. Passive Design

More than just a passing trend, sustainable interior design is here to stay. Plan for the future and look at ways to reduce your reliance on artificial heating and cooling, whether this means investing in home insulation or upgrading your windows to double glazing. Not only will energy efficient house features reduce your impact on the environment - they'll also save you money on air conditioning costs in the long run.

If you’re building a new home, get in touch with an expert builder to learn just how easy incorporating sustainable design features can be.

Make the most of Australia’s temperate climate and open up your interior spaces to create a new outdoor living area. Perfect for relaxing with loved ones, enjoying the sunshine, and hosting a barbeque, al fresco living spaces are the ultimate in backyard luxury.

Our bi-fold windows are a stylish and practical way to achieve this seamless transition without having to undertake major structural work.
