Custom Home Design Trends to Watch for in 2021

Custom home design trends

One of the most interesting things about home design trends is that they change from year to year. In 2020, we saw an increase in multifunctional spaces (hello, home office!), earth tones and floral accents. Next year? Well, that’s up for debate, but we have some good ideas.

Let’s take a look at some upcoming custom home design trends to look for in 2021.

Dark Colors

Specifically, dark blues. These hues can instantly create an elegant and modern look in any home, whether you’re going for a contemporary or transitional style. Expect to see these dark colors pop up on furniture fabric and wall decor. They go well with shiny metal accents, or the next item on this list.

Light Woods

We’re not just talking about flooring here. Light woods will show up in ceilings, walls and other design elements. Why? Scandinavian design is becoming more and more popular. Rustic, light woods inspired by Europe can both create a naturally inviting environment and complement other design elements that you want to be a focal point.

Serene Gardens

After 2020, we can all use a bit of serenity, right? More and more people will likely opt for a zen-like escape in their backyard with a garden featuring a customized waterfall, rock garden, pond or relaxing foliage. Add in some speakers on your deck to pump out calming melodies and you’ll truly create an inviting atmosphere.

Rustic-Modern Combos

This has been a rising trend for the past year or two, whether you’re talking about clothes, accessories or home design choices. Things that were popular in the past are making a comeback—only with a modern twist. Expect to see home design combinations like reclaimed wood with polished granite, colorful wallpaper with modern fixtures, rustic chairs with contemporary tables and more.

Global Inspiration

You’ll also see lots of inspiration from other countries, but not in an overt way. As has been the trends, little accents of interesting areas in the home can create intriguing points of interest and conversation starters. Whether inspired by Africa, Europe or Asia, more homes will likely feature elements inspired by the globe (e.g. Scandinavian wood, elephant prints, Japanese plants, etc.).
