Say Goodbye to These Interior Design Trends in 2021

Interior design is more than just decorating your home. It's a process to improve your experience within your space while being able to make it aesthetically pleasing. Not only it makes your homes modern and stylish but it also increases the functionality of the spaces within your home. There are some trends that you might not know that will soon be outdated this year. 2021 interior design trends are influenced by today and last year's events where many have transitioned to working from home and spent most days staying at home.

If you're looking into updating your home with interior design trends for this year, this blog will help you out! Whether you are moving to a new home, preparing your Austin home for sale to increase its value, or renovating your home, here are 7 interior design trends to avoid this 2021.

1. Open Floor Plans 

Open-concept floor plans have become less appealing since the start of 2020. Many have realized that this type of floor plan doesn't work for those who are working from home where your kitchen, home office, and living room are all in the same space. Forbes says that the lack of privacy becomes the lack of function. 

Open floor plans may still work with those who are living with no children, however, if families with children are looking into buying a home in Austin or renovating your home, a closed floor plan will provide more privacy and control the noise within a specific room. If you currently have an open floor plan, the use of dividers and partitions can be very helpful as well.

2. All-white Kitchen

Gone are the days where an all-white kitchen was the trend. While a white kitchen may look timeless, a pop of color can turn your kitchen from plain to sophisticated as bolder colors will gain more popularity in the future. Detailed patterns, texturized walls, and backsplashes will be some of the new kitchen design trends for this year.

3. Rose Gold and Millennial Pink

This year may not be the year for neutrals colors and minimalism. Playful design and visual interests will make your home more interesting. From wall colors decor pieces, too many neutral elements in your home can make it feel dated.

5. Fast Furniture

Fast furniture has caused negative impacts on the environment with over nine tons of furniture have ended in landfills in 2018 based on the EPA statistics. More will welcome the idea of sustainability that will encourage others to shop for alternatives to fast furniture such as renting furniture or shopping vintage where you can find gems that can add flair to your home.

This year's interior design will make more people experiment and explore designs that will give and reflect their personalities in their homes as well as adding new timeless decor and designs that will last for the next following years.
