We have finally made it to 2021 and left the memories of 2020 behind. After spending long days and nights at our homes, we have understood the importance of creating spaces that reflect our personality. Your home is a personal sanctuary and you can do it up just the way you like it. The new year will bring about significant changes and new trends in design. It will be more ecological, global, and inclusive. There will be a lot of natural materials, open spaces, and decor that encourages relaxation.
The one thing that remains common in 2020 and 2021 is the commitment towards sustainable architecture and sustainable development. We are slowly evolving to environmental commitment and the architecture trends reflect the same.

Open spaces have become prominent in many homes and offices. In this concept, there will be a better fluidity in spaces which will help make the best use of them. Even in offices, there will be an improvement in communication and better interaction in the teams. We will see maximization of light in spaces and an improvement in the integration in rooms inside the home. These open spaces will become multi-functional and will allow optimal usage. You can transform the open space into a play area for children or a reading nook for yourself. The open spaces will be very important in the coming years.

Indoor plants have become the best part of 2020 and they will continue to be a part of our homes in 2021. We have seen several indoor plants adorning the window sills and dominating the living rooms.
