2020 was a historic and unprecedented year that saw many people worldwide make the shift to working from home. Now that companies know that change can be done effectively, it’s expected that 22% of the American workforce will be working from home by 2025. With all that time spent inside your house, you’ll want it to be a pleasing and relaxing environment. Here are some of the trends of home renovation and interior design for 2021.

Take a maximalist approach

The new trend in decorating is to be colorful, with lots of different patterns to keep rooms interesting to look at. While there is something to be said about minimalism, it can get stale when you’re stuck inside staring at it all day. The maximalist approach says that as long as the colors match, having various patterns and prints in a room can be an eclectic way of bringing some life to your home.

Work from home spaces

With more people working from home for the foreseeable future, there’s an increase in the demand for home offices and spaces for both living and working. Guest bedrooms are being converted into offices, desks, and computers are added to bedrooms and living rooms, and sound insulation is becoming increasingly important to create a calm work environment. 

Porcelain counters

This trend is as popular for its practicality as it is for its aesthetic appeal. Large porcelain tiles absorb just 0.1% of bacteria instead of the previously used marble slabs, making them safer for kitchens and bathrooms. Decking out your counters and floors with porcelain tiles makes them cleaner, which is perfect if you have kids or do a lot of work in the kitchen.

Sculpture meets furniture

Everyone loves to dress up their spaces with some art, but after you move in all the furniture, you need you might not have enough room for some beauty. But sculptural furniture is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s functional as well as pleasing to the eye. Lamps, tables, and even chairs and couches can be as comfortable to look at as they are to sit in, turning a humble living room into an art exhibition.
