More people are feeling cabin fever, or just generally being tired of their own house. And it’s understandable, many of us had to stay inside our homes for months on end. We’re tired of seeing our same old house, with the same old design, day-in, day-out. If you’re considering changing the styles for your home, here are a few ideas to help you out:
Renovation Reminder: Before you try any of these interior design trends, it’s important to make sure that your house is fully functioning and thoroughly repaired. Sort out any kinks in your electrical system. Repair your sewer line; figure out whether there are weak spots in your foundation. You don’t want to push through your renovation plan when there’s something wrong with the fundamental functions of your house.
Once that’s over, then you can decide on an interesting interior design style. Take your time to choose, since it’s always significant work to redesign your home. Let’s take a look at a few.
Warm Colors Are Popular Again
Color is important to many design aspects, especially interior design. It’s always critical to factor in how colors play a role in how something turns out looking. Colors affect our mood as well, evoking emotions and making us feel strong feelings. Because of this reason, choosing a color is a serious matter. Colors should always compliment the style, design, and general theme of your house.
While red is a seasonal color, all its shades, like orange and tangerine dominate the 2021 design trends. Along with these, brown and beige are the most popular earth tones in this year’s home. Gray and a neutral color palette was a popular neutral color last year, but this season beige and a warm color palette are the popular neutral colors.
Curves over Straight Lines
Smooth and sleek edges provide a pleasant and informal atmosphere in the house. These organic, appealing designs are taking the place of boxy corners and sharp edges, which were formerly classics in interior design circles. While popular in the mid-century, rounded furniture and appliance design were largely left behind in favor of sharp curves and straight lines that persist up until the digital era.
However, in 2021, large and cozy couches with soft seats are back. As well as rounded furniture and appliances, even mirrors and other artworks are the predominant trends. We can begin to expect more elegant curves integrated into more design concepts very soon.
Strong and Impactful Wallpapers
Impactful and striking wallpapers are fast becoming the latest popular trend that dominates the walls and surface. Be it the living room or the conference room, loud and impactful designs are now the primary trend. Before, this design theme was merely employed as a way to “spice things up” and to break the monotony, but it is now becoming a focal point and integral aspect of design.
Interior designers are taking wallpaper to the next level by employing geometric designs and patterns, abstract shapes, and even panoramic landscapes. And because of this, wallpaper is becoming more and more accepted as art.
Build Your Own Archaeology-Themed Home
For a modern living room theme, you can display sculptural “artifacts” in sophisticated graphic wall cabinets to create “archaeological curiosity cabinets”. You can combine the recovered artifacts (whether be it genuine historical artifacts or trinkets and toys you find interesting) and coarse materials with small sculptures to create an eye-catching exhibit while maintaining a simple neutral hue.
This works particularly well if you’re interested in historical artifacts and items. Of course, this might sound like a novelty idea- and in some aspects it is. But it remains a solid interior design theme that might be of interest to you.
Broken Plan Living for Open but Zoned Space
Broken plan living is another interior design trend that’s fast becoming popular. But what is it? It is the inventive use of structural factors like very broad entrances, glass separators, and half-walls to maintain the lighting and openness of open architecture all while creating specified boundaries and separations, or “zones”. And that’s what a broken plan is all about: zoning.
Use dividers, free-standing furniture, and storage space to create an unobtrusive portion while preserving an open sense. These zones give a specific space for relaxing, preparing meals, or even entertaining guests.
Because interior design trends shift so quickly, it’s hard to predict what designers will publish in the future. At the present, it appears that these design trends will receive some attention before falling out of favor and being replaced by new interior design trends.
