Home Trends You Need To Know About In 2021

We’ve never seen as much of our homes as we have over the last year, and we’ll be seeing even more of them throughout the first part of 2021, by all accounts.

We can only guess that’s why property experts are predicting that millions will be spent on home improvement projects during the next 12 months.

It could be something you’ve thought about doing, and if you have, it’s useful to know what some of the biggest home trends will be in 2021, before you go ahead and get to work. 

There’s a long list of home interior crazes that will sweep the nation, but we’ve narrowed it down to 3 of the most popular ones:


Cottagecore quickly emerged soon after the pandemic struck and it’s a theme that will continue to be incorporated into Scottish homes.

The easiest way to explain cottagecore would be to tell you to cast your mind back to the Darling Buds of May, the comedy-drama series of the 90’s, following the Larkin family at their farm. 

They lived in a farmhouse in the countryside with floral prints inside, vintage china on dressers and a big wooden farmhouse table for family meals – that all encapsulates the cottagecore look.

Home Offices

No-one could have foreseen that remote working would become the norm, and it will carry on for many workers. 

Some of those who will now WFH permanently will look to have an office extension added onto their property so that they can carry out their duties as efficiently as in their previous workbase. 

When organising a home office extension, many design considerations must be made, including lighting and storage, both essential for productive homeworking.


The selfie became a global phenomenon not too many years ago, and now it’s the ‘shelfie’ that’s gaining notoriety. 

You will possibly have seen some ‘shelfies’ if you’re an Instagram user as the hashtag is all over the social media platform, used when people post a picture of their best shelf stacked with lots of colourful vases, plates, candles, ceramics etc. 

To get lots of ‘likes’ for your shelfie, position your shelf in good lighting and arrange and display objects that complement each other well in terms of colour.
