3 Big Home Trends For 2021 That You Have To Know About

A new year often encourages us to try new things and finally get around to doing things that we’ve left on the backburner for far too long. 

It may be that you have been meaning to improve your home, but it hasn’t happened, for whatever reason, and you’ve decided that 2021 will definitely be the year it gets done. 

We want to help you get it organised by offering some advice on the latest home trends, crazes that are set to be huge this year and could inspire your project. 

Here are 3 red-hot trends to take on-board:


At this difficult time, all we want is a bit of comfort at home, and the cosy feel of the cottagecore theme gives you it. 

It’s a theme that grew in popularity soon after the pandemic struck, and more people will be introducing it into their homes in 2021. 

What it encapsulates is the countryside lifestyle, so think farmlife, beautiful green hills and gorgeously cosy cottages. Just add floral prints to walls and textures, buy some vintage china for displaying on dressers and bring in a traditional wooden farmhouse table for the kitchen.

Home Offices

The need to work from home for millions will be a normality for several months yet, with some even reverting to permanent homeworking. 

No great shock then that requests for home offices have massively increased as homeworkers look for a more practical alternative to their makeshift office in the attic or bedroom. 

Any home office design should be well-lit, be a functional space, have sufficient office furniture and lots of storage. It should also be in a spot free of any distractions.


It’s not close-up shots of their faces that social media users are posting now. It’s shots of their shelfs. 

Yes, it’s all about the ‘shelfie’ on social, a concept that involves putting colourful objects, such as decorative plates, ceramics, glassware and candles, on the nicest shelf you have in the house. 

To get the best possible ‘shelfie’, organise the items in a coordinated fashion on each level, with each object complementing the other, and the different colours marrying together nicely.
