2020 Interior trends are here!

Experts have shared 2020 design trends and it looks fantastic!

Commercial interiors are constantly evolving and raising the creative bar. Designer knowledge of current and forecasted trends are an essential part of design planning. At Plank, we are continually observing and researching to provide the best decor colours that connect with local and international trends.

There has always been a presence of natural elements within both commercial and residential interiors. Now more than ever before, sustainable and organic details are a fundamental part of design and are significantly influencing choices of shapes, forms and textures. In the age of creating social spaces and biophilia in the workplace, and multi functional features across all industries, colour and shape are two focal design elements in 2020. Designers are consciously aware of how a space affects human behaviour and influences our moods and emotions. When designed intelligently, the design elements have the power to promote health, wellness and positivity.

Neutral Palettes

Neutral colours evoke a soothing and relaxed atmosphere in an interior space. In a commercial environment, warm and neutral tones produce a calm and content emotion. In particular, designers of hospitality, retail and office fitouts are consistently aiming to influence human behaviour by introducing a grounded theme that encourages a customer to return to the premises.



Shades of Blue

Contemporary design which incorporates a splash of colour can both set the mood or create a focal point within a space. Different tones of blue are often associated with the feeling of being cool, fresh and relaxed and can effortlessly enhance surroundings through the introduction of furniture, textures and lighting. Furthermore, introducing a vivid colour to an office environment can promote productivity and energy, and assist workers to stay focused.


Green Palettes

Rejuvenation, escapism and regeneration has well and truly found its way into commercial interiors. The introduction of a green colour palette reflects the beauty and wonders of the natural world and creates a calm, soothing atmosphere. It promotes health and wellbeing, and when paired with sustainable and organic features creates a biophilic design that delivers a happier, healthier work or social space.


Opulent Design

The feeling of luxury is a positive and gracious emotion which enhances the feeling of exclusivity and sophistication. Through the use of lavish items such as velvet and curved furniture, incorporating hues of red, purple and terracotta into a commercial environment creates a rich and opulent ambience. These stunning design aspects are easily coupled with Plank’s engineered floors and can amplify your design with our diverse woodgrain palette.
