There’s no doubt the last few months have changed the way we see our homes. Now an important part of our self-care, our homes have become places of refuge and sanctuary, so it’s no wonder we look forward to the latest trends to make our spaces look and feel more inviting and personal.
According to the experts, while 2021 will certainly see its own trends emerging, some of the biggest talking points will be a progression from what we’ve seen so far. Think organic textures, raw materials and natural décor. From serene living and sustainability, to statement tones and sculptural shapes, here are the new interior trends to watch for every room in the home.
Colour has the power to completely transform the space and create different moods, whether through a dramatic accent wall, an unexpected painted ceiling or a simple monochrome look.
Bold Optimism: Following the enduring trend for ‘greige’ interiors, it is good to know that colour is making a comeback in our homes. Optimism will form a part of our collective consciousness in 2021, and with it we will see more bright and bold shades featured in wonderfully bold and graphic ways.
Now effectively the heart of the home, the kitchen is where we prepare and enjoy food, socialise, work and study from home. This shift has transformed our outlook on kitchen design: no longer opting for a minimal scheme, many are now looking to make the room a practical yet calming space that also makes a statement.
Serene Living: Materials inspired by nature have surged in popularity. Injecting a feeling of calm that’s often felt amongst nature, the rustic finish and exposed grains of wood will add a soothing layer of interest to a kitchen scheme. For example, the Amtico Signature and, in particular, the Form collection shown below, which is specifically designed to replicate the look and feel of real wood. From weighty and industrial pine textures to soft and organic colourways, the designs available are sure to create a floor that complements your natural kitchen, whilst being more durable and easy to care for.

Following the global impact of Covid-19, the two main trends in bathrooms will come as no surprise. Hygiene and sustainability will reign high on the list of considerations to create a safe and beautiful haven in the home.
Sustainability & Wellness: Across the globe there continues to be a shift in the way materials are sourced and used, with consumers wanting to see a transparent and eco-conscious message. We’re now also more aware of the bathroom experience becoming sensorial and we’re much more likely to introduce wellness products into our homes.
Hygiene: Creating spaces that offer new levels of cleanliness and comfort has certainly become a priority. For example, contactless fittings have already firmly established their position in the hospitality sector and are now going to play an increasingly important role in the future of residential bathroom design.
