A new year means new trends.
People spent a lot of time in their homes in 2020, which means many are rethinking their home design and decor. Take a look at what trends are expected to stay in and what’s on the way out in 2021!
IN: Bold Paint Color
There are many bold, vibrant colors in 2021’s paint color predictions. From vibrant hues to darker earth tones, more people will play with color. While some will start with the walls in their home, others will keep rooms neutral and add in bold accents or furniture.
OUT: Open Floor Plans
With people using their homes for work, school, and play, it’s natural that privacy has become an issue. I mean, have you tried having jumping on a Zoom meeting while your kids are logged into Google Classroom? While I don’t think the open flow will disappear completely, designated spaces for work or school will become a priority.
IN: Easy-to-Clean Materials
Easy-to-clean materials are expected to rise in popularity as people not only spend more time at home, but are more conscious than ever about the spread of germs. Non-porous materials, as well as fabric designed to resist stains and bacteria, will likely become more prominent. Let’s call this a win for parents of young children!
OUT: Matching Everything
From furniture sets to monochromatic rooms, the days of perfectly matching decor may be over. By mixing furniture, finishes, and decor, design becomes more personalized. Complementary colors, designs, and materials will help add warmth and style to any room.
IN: More Plants
Indoor plants aren’t a new concept, but you may start to see them, along with other natural elements, more than before. Indoor trees and plants act as an accent piece by bringing in a piece of the outdoors. Lighter woods, natural materials, and earthy palettes can also help to create a space inspired by nature.
OUT: Toilet Paper
Ok, maybe not completely, but I had to add this to the list! Bidets are expected to become popular here in the US. Some are adding a bidet to the design of a remodeled bathroom, while others are opting for bidet attachments.
