Redesigning and decorating your home can be costly and overwhelming. In fact, the average American homeowner spends more than $7,000 a year on home improvement projects.
Luckily, the design trends sweeping 2020 can be incorporated with small design pieces and inexpensive changes.
Read on for our top 5 home decoration pieces that you can use to spruce up your space without blowing your budget.
One continuing trend from the 2010s that’s still going strong is houseplant decor.
While fiddle leaf figs dominated the home decor scene of the past, indoor olive and citrus trees are steadily becoming the “it” plants for your living and dining spaces.
A large houseplant brings a touch of luxury and comfort to your home. Additionally, the constantly photosynthesizing leaves purify the air in your home during all the daylight hours.
Before purchasing a plant, make sure that your room has enough light to meet its needs. And if keeping a tree alive in your home is a little too daunting for your current situation, you can search for faux plants as a great second option.
2. Gems and Stones
Another way to bring the outdoors into your home in a modern and beautiful way is by incorporating stones and gems into your home decor.
Consider using large, sliced, and polished stones as bookends on your bookshelf. You can frame small collected gems in a shadow box and hang on the wall. Jade, amethyst, and cat’s eye gem make for beautiful decor.
Many people believe that keeping gems and certain stones in the home can provide energy to a room and the people living there.
3. Peel-And-Stick Wallpaper
Peel-and-stick wallpapers are taking the design world by storm.
This inexpensive and non-permanent option is a popular alternative to wallpapers of the past. They allow you to choose on-trend, graphic prints without worrying that they’ll soon go out of style.
This type of wallpaper is easy to remove and doesn’t leave a residue behind, so you can replace it as often as you like. Even renters can enjoy this design trend because it won’t damage your landlord’s walls.
Floral and botanical prints are trending this year, along with geometric patterns.
4. Thrifted or Antique Decor Pieces
Do a Google search of the thrift and antique stores in your area and spend a weekend or two perusing their art and decor sections.
Not only will many of these pieces cost a fraction of the price, but they’ll be one-of-a-kind.
Antiques and thrifted pieces offer a classical element to your home design. Plus, they usually come with a story and serve as great conversation starters.
5. Organic Materials
Rattan and wicker are one of Pinterest’s top home decor trends this year.
Consider finding a small piece of furniture like a chair, side table, or shelf in raw wooden material to bring this trend into your rooms and spaces.
These pieces are often paired with terra-cotta and clay design elements creating an organic and earthy combo. Consider adding a blanket, pillow, or wall hanging in a textured and woven fabric.
