3 Home Trends Set To Be Absolutely Huge In 2021

The New Year so often inspires people to make a fresh start in different areas of their lives. This may include investing in their home and enhancing it to give themselves a nicer place to live. 

Is this something you’re considering doing in 2021? It’s never a bad idea to do home improvements, you just have to ensure that they hit the mark.

Do you have some things in mind that you’d like to do, or are you at the research stage?

If it’s the latter, Mitchell Glass has trawled the web to see what home trends will be hot this year, narrowing it down to 3 of the most popular:


We endured a difficult 2020, and 2021 will also be tough, so it’s no wonder that lots of householders are opting for the comforting cottagecore theme in their homes. 

This cosy aesthetic movement is inspired by the countryside, a place that brings to mind thoughts of rabid hills, various types of farmlife and sweet little cottages. A TV show that typified cottagecore best was ‘The Darling Buds of May’. 

You can get the cottagecore look by adding floral patterns to interiors, displaying fancy china on dressing tables, and putting a traditional farmhouse table in the kitchen.

Home Offices

Offices have been deserted for much of the last few months as workers had no choice but to work from home.

WFH will be a permanent thing for some, many of whom have decided to have an office extension built onto their home, rather than continue with a temporary work setup. 

It’s a sensible move as a home office can be custom-designed, so you’re assured of a workspace that will provide a bright atmosphere, lots of storage for paperwork, superb functionality and the utmost comfort.


It’s now more trendy to post a ‘shelfie’ on social media than a ‘selfie. 

Honest, there’s a massive craze on Instagram where users post a photo of their most attractive shelf covered with different colour objects, such as glassware, decorative plates, candles and ceramics. 

Your shelfie needs to be arranged cleverly though and be well colour-coordinated for it to attract lots of ‘likes’. Have it in good light too when taking out your camera phone to snap the finished shelfie.
