3 Need To Know Home Trends For 2021

Feeling reinvigorated after the Christmas break and eager to make changes in their lives, lots of people will embark on a home improvement project in 2021.

It’s always a good thing to do because once it’s complete, it strengthens your bond with your home and gives you extra enjoyment when spending time indoors. 

You just have to make sure that any enhancements made are right for your home. One of the best ways of ensuring this is by finding out what are the current ‘in’ home trends and using them. 

This year, we can tell you that these 3 trends will be amongst the most popular:


Have you ever had an urge to go and move to the countryside? You’re not alone and it’s this urge for such an idyllic lifestyle at this difficult time that’s led to cottagecore being a big current theme in homes. 

Cottagecore instantly brings to mind thoughts of greenery, farmlife, bustling hills and country kitchens – remember ‘The Darling Buds of May’?

Introduce the aesthetic into your living space with the bringing in of floral patterns, using a prominent dresser to display vintage pieces of china, and buying a farmhouse table for your kitchen.

Home Offices

Who could have predicted that so many millions of workers would have to work from home for most of 2020? And it ain’t over yet. 

Following this, demand for home offices has hit unprecedented levels, particularly amongst those who will not be returning to the office and making their home a permanent workbase. 

There’s a lot of logic to having an office extension as it can be built bespoke so that it offers the desired functionality, atmosphere and tools that a homeworker needs.


Have you had a go at doing a ‘shelfie’ yet? 

Rather than taking a close-up shot of your face (that’s a ‘selfie’), this involves taking a picture of your very best shelf with fancy ornaments, ceramics, candles etc. displayed on it from top to bottom, and posting it on social media. 

Don’t just put anything on it though. You have to give it some thought and get your colour combinations in sync for it to earn lots of ‘likes’. Snap your shelf in good light too.
