Eight Great Ways to Keep Your Home Trendy

Nic Shacklock, Head of Marketing at Online Bedrooms, advises, “The best way to implement this season’s trends in your home is to choose key pieces and styles that really suit the property you’re working with.”

Soft furnishings: Shop for velvet throw pillows in dark, vibrant colors to set accents on newly painted walls. They will bring a touch of warmth and luxury and will suit both living rooms and bedrooms.

Textured fronts: To fit in with the broader rustic-chic trend of recent years, introduce shaker-style doors, cabinet fronts and panels in kitchens and bathrooms. This modern farmhouse style works especially well in smaller homes and isn’t exclusive to coastal or vintage properties.

Scandi Tones: Work especially effectively in smaller and more typically crowded spaces, introduce natural tones into paint colors, artwork, blankets and tablecloths. It leans towards broader minimalist trends and creates a sense of calm.

Curves and Arches: Moving away from previous hard geometric trends, introduce more curved furniture and mirrors into your home. Even something as simple as a new rounded chair or dining table will create a soft, relaxing feel that also stays in style.

Statement Lighting: Make a statement with artistic lighting options in your home’s social spaces by introducing cleverly designed side lights or pendant pieces. They will not only be functional, but will also act as focal points for rooms.

Refresh your home office: With flexible and remote working remaining popular, implementing more storage solutions and multifunctional furniture is an especially valuable investment in small spaces. Calm and neutral colors also work effortlessly in video call backgrounds.

Bring in some fresh air: Since lockdown, homeowners have also increasingly appreciated having more greenery in their living spaces, as well as using more natural materials like raffia, wood and stone. Subtle accents on tables and sideboards with earth-toned plants and candles will help create a relaxing atmosphere.

Bring in darker colors: For a bold, fresh change, change wall colors to dark shades like deep greens, blues, or indigo, which work especially well in larger spaces. Alternatively, black accents against a generally neutral color palette can create an aura of elegance and sophistication. An easy way to introduce bold, darker colors into a room is to accent pieces of furniture, like dark green doors on built-in cabinets.

Nic continued, “As the seasons change, more and more people are tempted to refresh and redesign parts of their homes. With thoughtful planning and research, even a few simple color changes and new furniture can really elevate a space. Also, be careful not to neglect the texture.

“When in doubt, opt for trends that align with timeless styles like monochromatic themes and bring more greenery indoors.”
