2021 Design Trend Predictions

As the stay-at-home trend created in 2020 continues well into 2021, home and even commercial space designs are looking at bringing in comfort, creativity, and calming ideas. From creative home-office concepts to zen gardens, we are predicting the five top-most requested designs in 2021 here.


 

Industrial Design

Industrial space design takes cues from old factories or lofty look warehouse and industrial spaces that have been converted into cafés, lofts, and living spaces. It has increased in popularity in recent years and we see it booming in 2021. It comprises of stripped back architectural details including the use of bare bricks, metals, exposed wooden beams, metal pipes, and rustic furniture are parts of the design. Natural stone or cement tiles in earthy or grey shades blend in well with the theme.

 

 

Abstract Art

Abstract art that showcases the creativity and artistic designs are in. The design ranges from artistic feature walls to terrazzo floors, to begin with. Throwing in some modern art or an eloquent home décor accessory brings out the accent of the design. These spaces are created to spark the creative juices in living spaces especially during this era where many are still working from home.

 

Scandinavian Theme with Rattan Furnishings

The Scandinavian themed living space boasts the minimalist effect with hallmark traits of wooden floors, white walls, and modern furniture. Focus on functionalism and simplicity includes the use of natural materials, such as leather, wood, and hemp. Furthermore, a Scandinavian interior design is often influenced by a connection to nature, which combines natural shapes, abstraction, and the use of natural elements. Enter 2021 and this theme goes further with rattan furnishings making their way in. The woven details add texture and natural, light feel to the concept, naturally blending in with wooden tiled floors and the whitewashed walls.

 

Brighten Up the Space

Bright colours or pop colours are in. They bring fashionable cheer to the space design and creates an appeal to an otherwise normal-looking space. Enhance the design and let the bright and cheerful furniture or décor be in the limelight by allowing in lots of natural light and using stylish, light-coloured tiles for the floor and wall.

 

Zen Gardens

The stay-at-home trend continues into 2021 making indoor and outdoor gardens an important aspect of living spaces. Zen-inspired gardens, also known as Japanese rock gardens, serenades the calm and peaceful vibes that are most needed during the era. They are not only sought after in individual homes but are also built-in as part of commercial building infrastructures. We see anti-slip flooring as an important part of this design.
