3 Home Trends You Simply Cannot Afford To Ignore This Year

Will 2021 finally be the year when you get around to giving your house a much-needed makeover? We reckon it’s about time that you did!

There’s so much inspiration to be found online for any home improvement project, with many interior design websites currently offering insight into the home trends that are going to be most apparent over the coming year. 

But, we know that you’re possibly too busy to be doing all this tiresome research. So, Planet has been and done it for you, uncovering 3 fantastic home trends for you to take note of when drawing up your plans.


We need our homes to comfort us during these challenging times and people have recognised that, leading to the emergence of the cottagecore theme in residences. 

Are you old enough to remember ‘The Darling Buds of May’? It’s that kind of countryside lifestyle the Larkins enjoyed that many are looking to emulate in their own living spaces. 

You don’t need a country cottage to achieve the look. Any property can be made to feel warm and cosy with the addition of fine china on dressing tables, floral prints on walls, and a farmhouse table in the kitchen.

Home Offices

Traditional offices have largely sat empty for most of the last 12 months, with office workers now working from home. Following this, demand for home offices has been immense.

It may make sense for you to have a permanent, dedicated workspace at home. When going ahead with a home office extension, ensure that it satisfies all of your working needs, and will be blessed with natural light in the daytime. 

You’re likely to be far more productive in a work area like this than at an improvised workspace, such as a table and chair positioned in your bedroom or kitchen.


Most of us have taken a ‘selfie’ using our phones, and now we’re seeing lots of ‘shelfies’ being taken. 

If you click on the shelfie hashtag on Instagram, you will be directed to pictures of beautiful shelfs in homes that are full from top to bottom with brightly coloured, eye-catching objects e.g. glassware, ceramics, porcelain, candles. 

An impressive shelfie needs to be thoughtfully planned – you can’t just chuck a load of items on your shelf. The colours of the different objects on display also need to blend well together and not make for a messy clash.
