Get ready to say goodbye to 2019 and hello to an organized 2020!   When it comes to home storage solutions…function and fun is possible. As we look forward to 2020, storage trends are mimicking the aesthetically pleasing and intelligent designs seen elsewhere in home design. Here are some of the highlights you can expect to see more of in the coming year. 

OPEN SHELVING

Walk In Closet Portfolio - Minneapolis St. PaulA great way to add personality, storage, and a modern feeling to a room is to add open/exposed shelving.  Open shelving works in your pantry, mudroom, kitchen, closet, and garage and, thanks to design guru Joanna Gaines, this trend isn’t going away anytime soon.

UPPING YOUR PANTRY GAME

New home designs are incorporating larger pantries, even double pantries!  But what about those who aren’t building a new home? Homeowners of existing homes are compensating with custom pantry storage that goes beyond simple shelving. With options that include adjustable pull out shelves, baskets, and even food prep surfaces and small appliance storage, pantries will be having a renaissance moment in 2020.

COLORS & FINISHES

Minnetonka Custom Walk-in Closet2020 will see continued growth in color and finish options for storage cabinetry. From textured wood grain finishes to beautiful neutral grays to clean, matte looks – the options available to homeowners looking to inject personality into their home storage are more than ever before. 

CAN’T FORGET ‘FIDO’

You want to keep your dog safe and comfortable when you’re away, but let’s be honest, a dog kennel is not on the home decor “do” list. 2020 will see more pet owners keeping Fido comfortable and tucked away with built-in kennels. Whether integrated into a mudroom organization system or another area of the home, built-in spaces for kennels or dog washing stations are a hot trend for homeowners with pets.

SMARTER STORAGE 

With more homeowners choosing to downsize or move into the city, smart use of existing space will be more important than ever in 2020. Space-saving storage solutions, like a Murphy bed, that promote multi-purpose use are ideal for homeowners looking to maximize the versatility and space in a room in 2020.

GARAGE: NOT JUST FOR CARS

2019 saw a huge leap home garage storage systems purchased, with the largest percentage of that going to ceiling storage.  Garages are increasingly considered a ‘room’ by homeowners that can be utilized for more than parking cars. Look for continued expansion in both the sophistication and the options offered in terms of garage storage as homeowners look to utilize their garages in new and better ways.
