Predicted Backyard Trends for 2020

Eager to remodel your backyard? There is no better time to start planning for your dream backyard than at the beginning of a new year. Each year, designers share their predictions of the top trends for the new year. Take your landscaping to the next level this spring and incorporate some of these 2020 trends. If you’re curious about last year’s trends, check out our blog post!

Darker Color Palettes

In 2020, dark color pallets will be a popular trend for your outdoor landscaping. You can start simply by repainting furniture pieces that may need extra attention after the winter months. Or you can take it a step further and incorporate dark colors into your fencing. Adding a dark fence around your yard creates an illusion of a larger yard than what you have. Adding dark shades of blue, grey, and black is a great way to modernize your yard.

Indoor Living Outdoors

The backyard is a spot often used to entertain guests. This year we’re bringing the indoors to the backyard by adding colorful throw pillows, furniture, and other home décor. The goal is to make your backyard feel like another room in your home. Patios are an excellent place for you to escape the indoors, so you might as well make it a cozy spot where you can lounge for hours.

Outdoor Heating

Since you will be spending more time outside, you are going to need something to keep you warm during the chilly nights. If you don’t own one already, a fireplace is an excellent investment. You can use it year-round, and it’s a great way to entertain your guests. Plus, it adds some warmth to your backyard when it starts to cool down at night!

Unique Lighting

Light fixtures will stray away from their traditional looks and start being used in unique ways. Light fixtures will start hiding while creating light projections that illuminate the area you want to highlight. If your light fixture is visible, the fixtures will most likely take a geometric shape. The lighting used will be warm LEDs and low voltage lighting. Creating a cozy and well-lit environment.
