The architecture to come is even more global, ecological and inclusive: open spaces, natural materials, simple lines and a decoration that encourages relaxation, are some of the characteristics that will shape architecture in 2021. Would you like to know them ? Here are the top 5 trends for 2021:
1 / Open spaces.
For several years, open spaces have gained ground in offices and homes. Under the concept of open space, the aim is to achieve greater fluidity between spaces as well as to improve their use. Simultaneously, in offices, it improves the fluidity of communication and interaction between the different teams. As for sustainability advantages, it maximizes the light between spaces and improves the integration between the different rooms of the home or office.
2 / The kitchen increases in size.
The forecasts indicate that the kitchens will be larger in the coming years and that they will be at the heart of the home. In fact, it is increasingly common to see kitchens with an island and in which their decoration and materials have been carefully chosen.
The open-plan kitchen offers more light and space to the homes. If at any time the space in your room has been reduced, the next trends indicate that it will gain presence again, betting on an avant-garde style that contributes to creating that open space.
3 / Greater presence of the bathroom.
The bathroom will become a relaxing space thanks to its new color trends where gray, beige or pastel tones will prevail. Natural materials become relevant: accessories in bamboo and different woods, as well as countertops and natural stone decoration will restructure the bathrooms, combining practicality and design. Round mirrors, soft lighting that helps make this space a relaxing place, and originality in basic elements such as sinks and toilets will set the trend.
4 / Bright spaces.
The luminosity will be more appreciated by owners, architects and interior designers, both in new construction and in renovation projects, when they choose to give more relevance to the windows, increasing their size to get more light inside the home. Consequently, there is an improvement in quality and size insulation as well as in the cladding of homes and buildings, choosing to choose raw materials to insulate from heat and cold. The application of natural stone will become very popular for this purpose.
5 / Floors and walls carefully chosen.
Diversity is an increasingly chosen option for walls and floors: a variety of textures and a diversity of colors, ceramics that resemble wood, polished concrete and natural stone are the main examples.
Natural materials are a trend in different fields and the home is one of them. The use of these natural materials, in addition to being more energy sustainable, helps to achieve a relaxing environment in our homes.
We hope that these trends help inspire you and create unique spaces within your home.
