Finding A Skirting Board Style To Suit The Emerging 2020 Interior Trends
A new year welcomes change not only in your everyday life but in your home too. It’s always exciting to see the trends that emerge as a new year starts and to see which styles will become popular in the world of Instagram home & Pinterest. If you are in the process of planning your own home renovations for this year, now is the perfect time to look for inspiration and discover new ways to style your space.
The styles we are seeing emerge for 2020 are all about individuality and not being afraid of the use of colour, texture and statement patterns within your home. We have put together a list of the top 5 styles that we could see become popular this year along with recommendations on how to make this trend work within your home with our skirting boards.
Top 5 Interior Design Trends
If you are wanting to be a little bolder and more adventurous with your interior design this year, then a maximalist approach might be the perfect way to go. This style is full of bright, electric colours, wild patterns and is all about creating a space full of character. The rise in this trend will see us shift from minimal design as more and more people opt for bright over white.

You can easily create a maximalist style in your home by opting for pieces that are both grand and eclectic. Be brave with your colour choices and go for plenty of patterns and texture. With maximalist interiors every feature plays a part in the overall styling of the room, so it’s important not to forget your skirting boards. If you are renovating a bigger space within your home, then we would certainly recommend checking out our tall skirting board range. At larger heights these boards can really make a statement within your home.
- 70’s/ Retro
Despite us entering a new decade we are in fact seeing the revival of more retro/1970’s style interior design come back into popularity. This style is perfect for you if you are a fan of warmer colour palettes with hues of yellow, orange and red. Retro interior design is a timeless classic and can really add a stylistic, trendy look to your home. Rather than a whole home revamp why not try this style within one of the rooms in your house, perhaps your sitting room or study and see how it works. The introduction of antique furniture, old fashioned record players and dark woods will really help you bring a retro style room together.
If you find your current skirting board style is too modern or doesn’t fit the overall theme you want to go for then our Traditional range might be best if you are wanting to bring back the 1970’s era into your home. You can choose from standard Antique profiles or even find a style associated with a specific era of time in history.
- Dark Minimalist
Ok so you might be finding yourself stuck in a bit of a rut, as you want to say goodbye to plain, white, minimalist interiors but love the simplicity of a minimal home. This is where dark minimalism comes into play, a fresh take on minimal that adds a mysterious and gothic element to the interior design theme, making it the New Nordic. This is perfect if you are wanting a change from white interiors and wants something a little darker and moodier as you opt for dark greys and black colour palettes instead.
The simplicity of this trend still however stays the same, so when finding skirting boards to match you should always opt for something plain and simplistic. The skirting boards and mouldings in this particular design trend often fade into the background and are not a major design feature so be sure to check out our plain styles to see if there are any you think could work in your home.
You might be wanting to bring more natural elements in your home in the new year and move away from flat pack furniture and painted wood. This is a great way to connect your home and nature together. Plants and greenery are all said to have positive impacts on your wellbeing and can make a space feel more zen, which is what we all want for the new year. You can make your space feel calmer with the introduction of more exposed wood and neutral colour palettes.
Take a look at our new Oak range of skirting boards and architrave if you want your mouldings to be a little more authentic and earthy too.
- Bold Trim
This one is all about your skirting boards and architrave and has to be one of our favourites. It’s becoming increasingly popular to shift away from traditional white skirting boards and go for colour instead. One of the styles being favoured amongst many is the introduction of a dark trim which allows you to add a monochromatic feel to your space. One of our customers in fact opted for this style recently within their home and we love it!

Another colour hack you can go for if you are wanting to make greater use of your space, and perhaps make your rooms feel a little larger is same colour painting. This is a trend that has been favoured by many interior designers over the years including the likes of Abigail Ahearn and we look forward to seeing its popularity rise again this year.
We offer a colour matching service on all of our skirting boards and architrave so you can get the boards pre painted in a finish of your choice to match any RAL or Farrow and Ball colour reference.
It’s safe to say we are super excited about the new year and all of the new trends that are emerging in the interior design scape.
