Noise Reducing Products
The U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics notes in a 2017 report, more than 97 percent of the U.S. population is exposed to harmful levels of noise. Those statistics go up dramatically depending on the proximity to urban centers.

In response to this rise in noise pollution, manufacturers are stepping up to offer expanded arrays of performance solutions across many platforms. Pella Lifestyle Series provides the #1 performing wood windows and patio doors for the combination of energy, sound and value44 that pairs exceptional energy efficiency, sound control and value without having to choose just one.

Additional panes of glass paired with varying glass thickness improve sound performance and disrupt sound waves at different frequencies. With all of these features, Pella Lifestyle Series has options that reduce 52% more sound than single-pane windows.46

Arches Galore
From doorways and mirrors to windows and wall décor, arches are going to be everywhere in 2020. If your home’s original architecture contains arches, consider having a custom door made to add a modern touch to the traditional space. You can also incorporate arches into your home by procuring furnishings that feature them.

For new home builds or renovations, consider including an arched window, like the one pictured above, in a bathroom, living room or master bedroom design. You can also ask your architect to design arched built-in storage solutions for an elegantly modern bookcase alternative.

Chrome & Copper
Sleek and shiny chrome hardware is back in a big way this year, replacing brass designs. You might think chrome only works well in ultra-modern or contemporary interior design styles, but you can use it in farmhouse interior design or other natural spaces for added contrast.

Copper and other mixed metals will also be front and center in 2020. Jessica McCarthy, creative director of Decorist, suggests using a combination of polished and matte materials.

Warm Natural Wood
Often considered a final touch, materials, colors and palette coordination can be overwhelming, filled with many personalized choices. However, it is a key step in completing the vision for your interior design. If you’re looking for the most up-to-date interior design, consider incorporating warm wood into your spaces.

We love the way this kitchen combines white cabinets, backsplash tiles and countertops with warm wood island panels and seating. A few more ideas to incorporate warm natural wood into your home: translate wood planking to a new entry door or use our expanded interior stain finish offering to warm up wood tones.
