The year 2020 has forced us to think differently about many things: how we work, how we study, and how we maintain and nurture our relationships. But most of all, however, after being forced to stay at home all day every day, it has forced everyone to rethink the layout, design, and functionality of their homes and living spaces.
2021 is seeing a steep rise in homeowner’s plans to renovate and remodel in order to adapt to our evolving lifestyles. If you’re just at the starting line of this journey, here are some home remodel trends to expect more of in 2021 for inspiration.
Neutral Colors as Base and Brighter Colors to Inspire
2021 has been and continues to be a colorful leap towards more self-expression and away from Kim Kardashian-esque interior monotony. Pantone has published this year’s color palettes for fashion and home interior to reveal bright and warm hues playing a significant role in establishing character — which home remodelers should be considering more and more as we develop stronger and closer relationships with our living spaces.
While you shouldn’t shy away from going brighter this year, take note that natural and earthy hues are core elements for a design that is comfortable and comforting. Incorporating shades like Burnt Coral (a softer more mellow coral), Willow (a khaki that hugs), and Green Ash (a soft and cooling minty touch) into fixed pieces or movable decor will help keep things lively in a space that represents safety and calm.
