We are already two months into 2021 so we think the subject of this year’s home design trends are very appropriate and will somehow help you with any changes you are hoping to make in your homes.
The home design photos which I go through whilst researching this topic help me to conclude what will be staying on from 2020 and what will be leaving!!
Without further ado, let’s dive in…..
We saw a lot of Navy in kitchen cabinetry and islands, but it’s now time to move on to light wood tones mixed with neutral colours such as whites and greys. These shades are a great way to create an airy colour scheme whilst still featuring some warmth.
In 2020, people felt depressed and wanted their interiors to radiate light hence the reason to move on to the lighter shades.
As we all know home offices have now become essential in our homes and whether we decide to dedicate an entire room or a tiny nook to work, the dedicated area has to be given some serious thought.
Working from home isn’t going away anytime soon, so you might want to make “redecorating your office” part of your 2021 plans.
Below is Architect and Designer Osin Oshinowo’s prediction for the home office trends.
2021 will see the home office firmly established as a staple in the modern home. This room will overtake the kitchen as a focal point. With an emphasis on work wellness, designers will create spaces that focus on nature and neutral materiality. This will manifest with light walnut in combination with aquas, greens and greys. Or, a combination of this materiality and colors in calming patterned wallpaper to radiate natural and artificial light.”—Osin Oshinowo, Architect, Designer, Creative Entrepreneur, Founder Ile-Ila and Director CM Design Atelier

Whilst having an open plan area has its advantages it also has its disadvantages when having various family members trying to participate in video meetings. Although the open-plan is not going anywhere, people are thinking about the addition of sliding doors or screens that can create some boundaries helping to add some privacy.
Touch-free activation switches are designed especially for hygiene purposes helping reduce virus spread in any area of the home by allowing the user to simply wave a hand in front of a sensor to turn lights on and off. The hand-free Wave Switch from Legrand is a very good example of this.
Browns and Beiges are returning.
After going through such an upheaval in 2020, the colours that will be trending in 2021 will surely be ones which will uplift, reassure and offer up a generous amount of positive vibes. So what better hues than earth tones to give you the tranquillity you are looking for in your home?
Dulux colour experts have chosen Brave Ground™, a bolstering shade that connects back to nature and the simple things. A warm, earthy tone, it creates a feeling of stability, growth and potential; and provides a firm foundation for change and creativity in your home.
