Luxury Home Decorating Trends for 2020

The word “luxury” means many things to many people. But in 2020, industry experts have identified a number of luxury home trends for this new decade.  Here are our top five luxury home trends for 2020.

Upgrade your bathroom with contemporary designs

Luxury homeowners do not want to feel boxed in. That’s why according to Forbes, contemporary bathroom designs are popular in today’s luxury home market. In fact, they’ve noticed no threshold showers and free standing “island” tubs making their way into a majority of luxury homes. These open, stand-alone designs allow luxury homeowners to embrace the open-concept plans that are popular in today’s designs while giving a unique twist to traditional and frequently used spaces.

Add wine refrigerators and storage

What better way to end your day than with a perfectly chilled, aged glass of burgundy? To never have to worry about wine going bad, luxury homeowners are adding sophisticated wine refrigerators and storage to their homes. Many wine refrigerator and cooler models can be built right into your existing kitchen cabinetry or island.

Incorporate navy blue into your space

The 2020 Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue, which is a shade of navy. As the Color of the Year, this means you can expect to see a lot of navy incorporated into luxury home décor in 2020. Luckily for homeowners, the color is versatile and sophisticated. By utilizing the color on an accent wall or statement furniture piece, you can add a pop of color to any room without taking away from existing pieces. It’s the perfect complement. 

Avoid a traditional dining table in the kitchen

According to Elle Décor, traditional dining tables have been replaced this season. Instead, luxury homeowners are incorporating upholstered, more comfortable chairs into their homes. These chairs lend themselves to a “let’s spend more time here” ambiance and encourages people to spend more time in their beautiful, luxury homes.

Minimalism is out and maximalism is in

Like most luxury homeowners do, maximalism is about embracing the grandeur. Minimalism focused on toning things down and having a simple, straightforward design. Maximalism is the complete opposite. Maximalism encourages you to incorporate big, bold, bright colors and patterns into your home. Go ahead and hang that abstract painting above your classic blue armoire. While maximalism does take some restraint and walks a fine line between good design and gaudy, it does give luxury homeowners the ability to showcase all their treasures without having to hold back or pick favorites. Maximalism is showing us that more is more.

If you’re searching for the latest and greatest in luxury that has already embraced these 2020 design trends, look no further than Omega at Bonita Bay. Rising 27 stories above the Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico’s skyline, Omega at Bonita Bay has an unsurpassed list of luxury amenities such as day cabanas, fitness center with massage, steam room, locker rooms and poolside day beds, expansive waterfront views and extraordinary appointments that come standard with every condominium.

One Luxurious Penthouse Remains Available at Omega, The Final High-Rise at Bonita Bay

The Ronto Group announced that one luxurious penthouse residence featuring a six-car “tandem” garage remains available at Omega, a new 27-floor high-rise tower to be built by the award-winning developer within Bonita Bay. The Omega tower will be the final luxury high-rise tower to be built at Bonita Bay. Designed by Robert M. Swedroe, the clean-lined, modern looking tower will feature 67 residences, including 63 spacious tower residences and four penthouses, three of which are under contract. Ronto has processed sales contracts worth more than $100 million. The remaining penthouse is priced at $6.75 million. Pre-construction pricing for the tower residences that offer 4,645 square feet or 4,210 square feet under air and expansive views 78-feet or 68-feet wide starts at $2.3 million and is available for a limited time. Ronto will break ground on construction of Omega this spring.

Because the building design takes advantage of high-rise construction methods and materials that span greater distances and allow the use of more glass, the Omega floor plans offer the square footage and width found in estate homes built on 110-foot home sites. The available penthouse 2602 residence features 6,455 square feet under air and a total of 10,150 square feet of living space, including an incredible 1,710 square feet of outdoor terrace areas with an Alfresco gas grill and 42-inch high glass railings, and a private rooftop terrace measuring 1,985 square feet. The residence also comes with a private elevator lobby, a private air-conditioned storage space on the same level as the residence, and the six-car “tandem” garage that measures 35-feet wide by 38-feet deep, a total of 1,350 square feet. 

The penthouse 2602 floor plan includes five bedrooms, a den, and five-and-a-half baths. The massive open-concept living area features a great room with a fireplace, an island kitchen, a spacious walk-in pantry, a full-sized SubZero wine cooler, and a dining space that opens to splendid terraces that wrap around the corner of the building. Additional terraces are located off the owner’s bedroom and off two of the guest bedrooms. The residence will feature open living spaces with walls comprised of tall windows offering views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Volume ceiling heights of eleven feet four inches, except where dropped, will create a sense of space that cannot be duplicated by remodeling existing high-rise residences.

The open living spaces and size of the Omega penthouses is unlike any high-rise residence previously built in the Southwest Florida market. Ronto and Swedroe created the building from the inside out based on preferences expressed by potential purchasers. The potential purchasers indicated view corridors and spacious, open floor plans with large living areas, large owner suites and secondary bedrooms, big outdoor living areas, private garages, and readily accessible storage space were all critical to an enjoyable living experience. Functionality and comfort were more important than form. Ronto and Swedroe also found that rather than wanting to downsize by moving into a condominium residence with less square footage than that to which they had been accustomed in their single-family estate homes, the potential purchasers wanted to simplify their lives by moving into a maintenance-free environment without sacrificing space. 

The expansive open living spaces and size of Omega’s tower residences reflect Ronto and Swedroe’s approach. The 01 and 03 residences will include 4,645 square feet of air-conditioned living space, an unobstructed 68-foot wide view, outdoor terrace areas totaling 1,005 square feet, and an 80-square foot or 75-square foot private air-conditioned storage space on the same floor as the residence. The plans feature a massive great room, elegant dining area, comfortable family room, and a double-island kitchen.  The great room and owner’s bedroom open to a huge west and northwest facing terrace with multiple conversation areas, a dining area, and an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill. The double-island kitchen offers an additional gathering place when entertaining. The plan also includes a den, four-and-a-half baths, and three large guest bedrooms. The den and all three guest bedrooms open to another large terrace that offers sunrise views. 

The 02-tower plan offers 4,210-square feet under air, an unobstructed 78-foot wide view, 540 square feet of outdoor terrace space, and 75 square feet of private air-conditioned storage space. The plan features a massive great room, an elegant dining area, a comfortable family room, and an island kitchen that combine to create the spacious, open living area preferred by potential purchasers. The great room fully opens to a terrace with conversation and dining areas and an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill. The plan also includes a den, three-and-a-half baths, and three large bedrooms, all three of which provide views of Estero Bay and the Gulf. The owner’s suite features a huge walk-in closet, and a bath with separate vanities and separate water closets.

Standard finishes in the fully completed Omega residences will reflect Ronto’s attention to creating a luxurious environment. Flooring in the living areas will be wood, stone, or porcelain tile. The island kitchens will be outfitted with designer selected cabinetry, quartz or granite countertop selections, a 36-inch SubZero refrigerator and 18-inch freezer, Wolf gas ranges and ovens, a Miele dishwasher, and Dornbracht plumbing fixtures. The bathrooms will also feature designer selected cabinetry and quartz or granite countertops, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, and Toto toilets.
