Along with everything else in 2020, there are certain decorating trends that just shouldn't stick around in 2021. Here’s are some popular trends to avoid this year, that may be surprising to you:
Barn Doors | Maybe you’ve tried them, maybe you love them, but the barn door phenomenon is going out the door. When you’re trying to master your interior decorating style, you have to create an overall environment which requires the architectural shell and then all the pieces in it which brings the eye up and around with color and texture that creates that whole experience. So if you really love the rustic farmhouse, the barn doors are just one thing you could do to achieve that style.
All Grey Everything | The reality of an all grey interior is that it keeps you stuck in a cold and impersonal interior. It’s also very difficult to decorate in warm or “happy” tones when you have a very grey base. The biggest mistake nowadays when you’re picking floors is to go with that grey flooring, because you’re locking yourself into that cool colour palette. Everything that we have been seeing coming out recently are more saturated and brighter colours or muted tones of those brighter colours. But it’s all moving away from the all grey interiors. White is still the most universal paint colour, and usually cannot go wrong with it.
All White Kitchen | We love an all white kitchen, but it’s going out in 2021. The truth is it can come off as boring and the design world is over it. Yes subway tile is amazing, but since it’s been done so much, that’s not the direction things will be going in for much longer. To change up an all white kitchen to bring a little life into it, you can paint the bottom cabinets a darker colour that goes along with the colour palette of the rest of the kitchen. Leaving the top cabinets white grounds the space, and brings the eye up. You could also paint just the island a darker colour, which stands out from the all white kitchen. Basically you just need to through something off with colour or material or texture.
These are the three beloved trends that are on their way out in 2021. Let’s push ourselves, try something new, and leave 2020 behind us!
