During 2020, a majority of homeowners invested in lockdown home improvements as they squeezed in work, homeschooling and personal fitness alongside all their usual domestic chores. If you have resolved to make your home more beautiful, comfortable and adaptable this year, we can help. Here are some great interior design trends for 2021 with the potential to transform the way you live.
Redecoration may be out of the question if you rent your home, but you can still ring the changes with flexible, multifunctional furniture. Fortunately, furniture designers have come up with a range of innovative and versatile items that can be used for different functions to offer you the benefit of refreshing home interiors and functionality at the same time.
Converting a guest room into a home office was a popular project for homeowners in 2020, and the trend is set to continue this year. This savvy, low-budget transformation involves swapping a traditional bed for a Murphy bed and cleverly concealing office shelving and desks behind fitted cupboard doors.
Warm, earthy paint shades are among the interior design ideas promoted by the UK’s paint manufacturers this year. Dulux’ Colour of the Year for 2021 is ‘Brave Ground’, a fresh, light brown colour that connects us with nature and creativity. Similarly, Crown’s new palette ‘Cocoon’ includes soft, pastel shades in natural hues. Meanwhile, Little Greene has just launched ‘Stone’, a collection of 36 paint colours based on naturally occurring pigments.
We’re also introducing more colour into our kitchens (the interior design site Houzz says ‘sage green units’ is currently among its top searches).
The fashion for ‘Shabby chic’ interiors has now evolved into a desire for comfort, warmth and a unique sense of character. This powerful interior design trend combines wood panelling with upcycled furniture, chintz patterns and vintage treasures. Similarly, the popular Cottagecore movement is all about eco-friendly, cosy, and rural aesthetics is a rage in lockdown.
Since social distancing restrictions were introduced last year, entertaining outdoors has really taken off. Exciting garden features such as raised beds, water features, solar-powered lighting, split-level decking and firepits have made garden design every bit as necessary as interior styling.
