Home design changes every year, but in 2020 many of us had to spend more time at home. How will this impact home design in the future? Will it jump forward several years, like many other areas of technology and design have?  

To help answer that question NZ Blinds have put together a short guide on their website about the top home design trends predicted to dominate 2021. From the latest motorised roller blinds, to eco-friendly furniture, find out more about these upcoming trends in the short recap below. 

First of all, light coloured woods are becoming more common as a style choice in New Zealand home renovations, using natural timbers for flooring, furniture, and décor. Next, kitchen décor has begun to move away from a longstanding trend of stark white colour palettes. This is also impacted by the move toward natural wood tones too, as timbers are going to be more common in the kitchen also.  

Along with the above, there is a growing overall appreciation for nature, including houseplants and natural lighting. The latter will mostly be achieved with larger windows. Floor-to-ceiling windows work well for this, so we can expect to see more demand for motorised roller blinds too, as these are ideal for large windows that are too high up to manually open or close. 

The last area of change we can expect to see in 2021 is the inclusion of more integrated living spaces, and smaller spaces overall. The use of space is likely to change drastically over the next few years, as more people take to urban living and city density increases. This doesn’t mean less comfort however—well designed spaces should be able to make the most of the space they have, in order for it to feel much larger than it actually is.
