Home Decor Trends To Look Out For In 2021

When purchasing a property, many will spend a long time and a lot of money turning their house into a home and transforming each and every room into a space that they love. Whilst all homeowners will have slightly different tastes and everyone will have individual preferences in terms of design, it is fair to say that the vast majority of people will be influenced in some way or another by the current home decor trends.

 As you’re probably aware, interior design trends are continually changing and as we head towards the end of 2020 and January is just around the corner, many are starting to wonder what 2021 has in store for home decor. So, to help any homeowners who are planning on redecorating various rooms in the next year, below are some of the predicted trends that you should look out for when visiting DIY shops and homeware stores.  


 Mixing modern and vintage


Lots of homeowners are starting to move away from the sleek, chic, minimalistic look that has been used throughout contemporary homes for years now and incorporating vintage items into modern spaces is becoming more popular. As we head into 2021, it is though that vintage accessories will be even more sought after and monochrome will be swapped for rich colours.


DIY wall panelling


Panelled walls are commonly associated with traditional properties that are full of character, but it is thought that during the upcoming year, wall panelling will frequently be brought into modern houses too. Wall panelling is a brilliant feature to add to any room in your home and with many different designs to choose from, it really can compliment any interior design.


Dried flower accessories  


Flowers have been used throughout the home for decades and they are a brilliant way to connect your interior to the outdoors, however, things will be a little bit different next year. Dried flowers are expected to be used more than fresh flowers in 2021 and they are a brilliant way to bring natural textures into a room. So, it is worth looking into how to dry flowers yourself.


Earthy darker tones


For decades now, homeowners have been decorating every room in the house with light neutral tones and whites, creams and greys have undeniably been the most popular colours. However, it is thought that things will get darker as we head into 2021. As well as rich colours like dark blues and greens, we will also see people using rusts, deep reds, browns and even blacks.


Comfortable furniture and accessories


Whilst the minimalist ‘show home’ look is one that many have aimed for over the past few years, this will become less popular in 2021 and many will be making their rooms feel comfy, cosy and homely again. It is thought that both the furniture in a room and also the accessories will be more functional and comfortable, and appearance may take more of a backseat.


Natural fabrics and woods 


Many are becoming more aware of environmental issues and as people make a conscious effort to reduce their carbon footprint, they will swap synthetic fabrics for natural sustainable materials. In particular, it is thought that natural-looking light wood will be used throughout homes and unique handmade pieces of furniture will be more popular than ‘off-the-shelf’ furniture sets.

All in all, it is fair to say that there are going to be some amazing home decor trends in 2021 if predictions are correct and when redecorating various rooms in your home, you will have a number of brilliant ideas to help you.
