2021 Home Design Trends

2021 Home Design Trends

The year 2020 has been one for the books, and only time will tell what the year 2021 will bring. With more time in quarantine, this means more time inside your house, and you may have already started planning your next renovation. In the spirit of looking to the future, here are some interior design trends industry leaders predict will stand out in 2021.

Paint Splatter

Sherwin-Williams just dropped its 2021 trendy colors grouping them into four categories: Sanctuary, Encounter, Continuum, and Tapestry.

Sanctuary has an emphasis on muted neutrals and warm minimalism. Encounter pulls from earth tones and muted blues and mustard yellows. Continuum features bright, forward-thinking colors and inky hues.

Color palettes like greys and blues were among the most popular in 2020, and they’re here to stay. Neutral colors like grey, cream, and whites serve as a great basis to incorporate your favorite accent colors into.

Making a comeback from the 90s era, light woods especially will be an asset to brighten up your living spaces and allow you to decorate freely without looking cluttered or overdone. The versatility of wood, in general, makes it easy to incorporate into your home without a major remodeling job. Before you consider buying a large statement piece that draws large amounts of attention, think about the benefits of a simpler style.

Sustainable Decor

With a focus on preserving the environment, more sustainable pieces will be incorporated into many home designs and pieces. Reused and low impact materials have grown in popularity and made their marks in interior design. Breaking the stereotype that sustainable pieces are unflattering, companies are beginning to focus on creating high-end pieces that are also eco-friendly.


In contrast to the traditional meaning of the word “trend”, the most adaptable interior design trend predicted to hit in 2021 is the art of individualization. Simply put, make your space your own! There’s nothing more personal than the place you call home, so why not make it feel that way? Designers of home decor are beginning to focus more and more on the uniqueness of their pieces, so if you see something that catches your eye and speaks to you, that’s a surefire sign to bring it home.

Focus on Family

Time spent at home in 2020 reveals the importance of those large family gathering spaces like family rooms and open kitchens. 2021 expects to continue that push to upgrade and renovate the gathering spaces in the home, many of which are serving double and triple duty as playspaces, cafes and even school classrooms. According to the National Association of Realtors, homes with open floor plans and smart home systems rank first among 2021 design choices.
