2020 was the year where everyone spent a lot of time at home. For as far as we know, 2021 too will be an always-at-home lifestyle – which is the time to rethink our living space. 

Design trends are constantly changing – and below you can see the trends that are ‘in’ this year:

Add Blue Color to Your Home

Classic blue was named the 2020 color of the year, and interior designers accept the fact that this year we are going to see lots of navy and velvet blues in particular. Although, you have to be very careful when using colors because too much of it can make you feel depressed. We recommend combining it with bright colors, such as gold tones.

Because we will be confined to our homes for a while – we should transform our space into a place that we can simply relax. Let the walls help you relax.

Let Natural Light In

2021 is the year we will want to focus to let as much as we can naturally light. You should put away heavy curtains and let the windows open – because let’s be clear here: there are so many benefits to natural light. We are spending a lot of time in our homes due to social distancing – and the sunlight is what we need!

Become a Plant Lover

While you made changes to let the natural light in, it’s time to turn your home into holding plants. We are spending a lot of time being at home, and plants can bring us a lot of joy. They can get your mind off of everything that is going on. It’s proven that plants make any space look calmer and more beautiful. They have a positive impact on purifying the air and improving your mood.

Rethink the Rooms

We all want spaces that we can use and reflect our personalities. That is why it is time to focus on the functionality of rooms. It’s time to rethink dining rooms or living rooms. Turn those rooms into a place where the kids can do their schoolwork or make a place you can work too. Take out that dining table and transform it into the room you have always wanted.

Make Your Furniture Functional

Nowadays, people are thinking “We are spending more time at our homes. We should make our homes more functional”. This is the time where we can pick pieces that can serve us doubly. Save space with fold tables. 

While we are living in these unpleasant times, multi-functional furniture is a game-changer. 

You Should Keep the Interior Natural

When it comes to styling, trends these days are all about natural elements. Consider natural tones, danish furnitureart deco chairs, art coffee tables and wooden furniture pieces. All of these can work together and they just add texture and warmness to your room, creating a more natural look – calm vibe. A lot of designers recommend adding a leather pillow, a throw, or knitted pillows to your room for an extra touch.

Cozy Your Space Up

It’s time to add more accessories to your room – like sculptures. Surround yourself with things you love. Your room should have a curated look – not just a bunch of objects laying there.

Storage – should be your top priority

You don’t need a space that feels messy and claustrophobic. As you are redesigning your space, you should keep in mind the storage…yes, the storage – it’s important more than anything.

It is important to invest in what makes you happy because you don’t want your space to feel messy and claustrophobic. With a lot of storage – you can really breathe easily, while you still have space for books, craft projects, or games.

Wallpapers are something you should look into

Wallpapers are back. Here is an idea: use wallpapers on ceilings, to provide a colorful backing for your furniture.

Wallpapers are a great choice for renters or those who like to constantly change up their space. You can change it or take it down whenever you want.

Add Colors to Your Space

The calming tones are on the rise. Find ways you can add colors to make the space more calm and joyful at the same time. You should try yellow chairs.

The colors can develop a sense of happiness and joy when we are staying at our homes.

Break Up Your Space

When we are facing the reality – and we have to use our space as working spaces – it’s important that when planning a renovation, think for everyone to have a ‘workstation‘. 

Redecorate Your Kitchen

This is the time we get creative in the kitchen…no, we don’t mean cooking! Nowadays, kitchen designs are influenced by European styles. Consider open shelves. The trends are saying that it is time to try black and green themes. 

Decorate with Graphic Art

This year people are looking to pay more attention to the artwork. Whether it’s canvas, a print or, a pillow – these features make any space cool. This trend is so easy, you don’t need a lot of money. 

Conclusion: In  2021, interior design trends are taking a whole new dimension as we are learning to live in a pandemic situation. Because we all are spending quite a bit of time at our homes, it’s important to make it feel like a ‘temple’ — a place you feel uplifted, relaxed, and inspired.
