2021 Home Decor Trends to Try

If you’re planning a new move, a big renovation, or just sprucing up your space, the latest interior design trends are probably on your mind. Staying ahead of the curve is the best way to make your updates last and stretch your budget further. Here are the 2021 home decor trends to watch for, according to the Berks Homes designers.

Warmer Colors

From paint colors to furniture and wall decor, warmer colors are on the way in. That doesn’t mean you need to overhaul your entire house with brown and yellow shades if your color palette is cooler. You can pull in warmth in an uncomplicated way with a few simple accent pieces.

Stark grays have been popular for a while, but it’s easy to transition this cooler tone to accommodate the changing styles. Minimize cool gray hues by incorporating “greige.” This natural blend of gray and beige will warm up your space with no need for a total transformation. Invest in just a few greige accent pieces or paint one wall to blend this cozier color into your already gray space.

Two-Tone Kitchens

While an all-white kitchen with stainless steel appliances will forever hold a place in our hearts, homeowners are leaning towards a more diverse look. Natural wood cabinets are making a comeback, but not throughout the entire space.

We’re forecasting a two-tone look, for example, a wood island with white cabinets. Or wood on the lower cabinet level and a bold color on the upper cabinet level. Transform your builder grade cabinets by painting half of them a complimentary color. This is a quick and affordable way to add more detail and personality.

Vertical, Dark Shiplap

Shiplap has been the rage for a while now, and we don’t expect it to leave the scene yet. But you might notice it’s being used in a new way. The style up until now has been white shiplap, run horizontally. But now we’re seeing vertical planks in darker colors. 

The vertical layout lengthens the height of a room without looking too “farmhouse.” Rich, earthy tones or even black shiplap are becoming trendy. This adds depth and dimension to what might be an otherwise plain room.

Stylish Organization 

These days everyone is dining at home, schooling at home and working at home. Dedicated workspaces have become more than a trend, they’re a necessity. That means furniture and decor that incorporates home organization will increase in popularity.

That seemingly temporary home office may become more permanent this year. That means homeowners are investing in stylish pieces that optimize productivity. Minimalism and organization will be top of mind for both homeowners and designers. Adding extra cabinet and drawer space, nooks for studying, and dedicated rooms for entertaining and working are the new normal.
