Houzz is the leading platform for home renovation and design. With a community of millions of homeowners and home design and renovation professionals, Houzz has unique insights into how people are renovating their homes and we are able to provide insights on the latest home design trends.


We searched through Houzz data, browsed hundreds of home design photos, reread past articles and talked to the professional community to create this collection of materials, colours and other home design ideas that you can expect to see a lot more of in 2020.


Research Insights

Upgrade stats come from the 2019 Houzz & Home study, which is the largest survey of residential renovating, building and decorating activity conducted. This survey covers every aspect of home renovation in 2018, from interior renovations and extensions to home systems, exterior upgrades and outdoor projects. This includes the historical and planned spends, professional involvement and motivations behind these projects, as well as activities planned for 2019. The full report can be found here.
