5 Residential Design Trends to Look Out for in 2021

Whether you’re relocating, flipping a property, or sprucing up your home, prioritizing design is essential. Over the years, Ottawa’s design preferences have evolved drastically. If you’ve been struggling to keep up with the top interior design trends that are set to take center stage in 2021, we’ve rounded up a guide to help you get started.

1. Bohemian Touches Are Making a Comeback

If you’re an interior design aficionado, we’re sure you’re familiar with Ottawa’s passion for all-things-modern-and-minimalist. Well, that still rings true. However, there have been certain changes this year.

While modern and minimalist themes are still popular, bohemian touches have started to make a comeback. If your space is decked out in neutrals, consider adding some pops of colour with artwork, décor, accessories, textures, and patterns. As long as you avoid going overboard, you’ll manage to enliven your space and bolster aesthetic appeal.

Let your creative juices flow!

2. Wicker and Rattan Décor for the Win

When it comes to accessories, Ottawa’s known for being one step ahead of the game. Wicker and rattan décor have been trending in 2020, and they’re expected to entirely steal the limelight in 2021.

Incorporate wicker baskets, rattan coasters, and similar tawny, rustic accessories into your home to really take it up a notch.

3. Vaulted Ceilings 

Move over, regular ceilings. Vaulted ceilings have been trending since 2018, but their popularity has skyrocketed recently. Their grandiose appeal complements just about any interior space—modern, industrial, vintage, bohemian, transitional, or rustic. Consider opting for domed vaults, groin vaults, or rib vaults.

4. Soft Curves and Contours

While straight-edged furniture hasn’t lost its charm yet, soft-edged furniture has definitely entered the residential design game. And it won’t be exiting any time soon.

Soft curves and contours add elegance and sophistication to interior spaces. They also increase interior harmony, so your home appears more put-together, relaxing, and inviting.
