2020 was a defining year for everything but especially the collective relationship we all have with our homes. Shutdowns due to the pandemic left many of us scrambling to create home offices, homeschooling spaces, and gyms, changing way we use our homes significantly.

Whether you are moving to a new home, renovating your current one, or planning DIY projects for the future, it’s important to choose an aesthetic that’s as current as possible to help boost resale value. While overall, there’s been an “anything goes,” approach to interior design in recent years and especially in 2020, these are the trends experts and interior designers predict will be going away in 2021.

1. Modern Farmhouse Style

Shiplap wall treatments, barn doors, and other hallmarks of the modern farmhouse style are still beautiful but look clearly out of place in city apartments and suburban homes.  So, for 2021, these styles are headed out to pasture.
2. White Kitchens

The market has moved away from the staid whites and man-made agglomerates that dominated design for the last decade; and is once more embracing the exotic, rare stones, and detailed patterns that have historically defined luxury tile and stone.  So, keep an eye out for more natural & dramatic Cabinetry & Countertops!
 
3. Open Floor Plans

While it looked like the appeal of the open floorplan was starting to fade at the beginning of 2020, during the pandemic many people learned the hard way that perhaps your kitchen, home office, great room, playroom, and living room shouldn’t all be the same space. Lack of privacy ultimately becomes lack of function.

Now that we have had a taste of what it is like to work from home, while a partner is doing the same, or a child is attending school via zoom at the same time, open floor plans aren't as attractive as they used to be. The need for rooms with doors, windows, and some privacy will make a reappearance.

4. Minimalist Style

Move over Kim Kardashian inspired homes because less isn’t more when there’s a pandemic. The minimalist trend is on its way out and will give way to more layered, collected, and eclectic spaces. The sheer amount of time and the number of activities we have all been engaging in at home in 2020 makes it very difficult to adhere to an austere or sparsely filled home.
 
5. Dark Colors

Dark colors are dramatic but they close in a space. Many people will continue to work remotely in 2021 and multi-purpose rooms are a necessity. Dark colors limit the usage of a space and without expert lighting, a dark room is less adaptable.
