 Interior Design Trends for 2021

Design trends come, and design trends go. But there are a couple of trends that look as though they are here to stay.

2021 is going to be marked by two trends more people want in all areas of life, but especially when it comes to interior design. 

Simply put, people want personalization and flexibility.

With more and more time spent at home, people are replacing permanent design changes for more flexible choices such as vinyl wall decor, and choosing custom wood designs over the more permanent shiplap.

Building on these two ideas, the home decor space is about to be flooded with people less likely to do what their neighbors are doing and more likely to choose designs to fit their unique personalities, tastes and seasons.

This means out with permanent and in with transient — wall decor and more!

Here are 3 Interior Design Trends for 2021 

1. Textured Walls

Shiplap became increasingly popular with home design shows in the 2010s. But as we move into the new decade, this one trend is showing its age.

Instead, consumers are more likely to opt for texture in the form of temporary wallpaper, living plant walls or even tile. Add to that vinyl wall decals, and designers are increasingly seeing trends that will bring walls to life in non-traditional ways in the coming year.

2. Mix and Match

Gone are the days of everything being matchy-matchy. Along with personalized texture and feel, this trend calls for a mix of styles, colors and even furniture that will bring out a sense of personality not found in conventional magazines. 

This trend has carried its way into bedrooms where end tables are individualized and now even bathrooms have become a canvas on which to paint your own personal expression.

Bathroom mirrors have become a way to display funny quotes and hilarious sayings. Once deemed off-limits, these decor trends are now being praised for showcasing personality and individualized sense of humor. 

Mirror vinyl decor makes it easy to customize your surroundings without damaging the glass, making switching out sayings easy, fun and affordable.

3. Peel and Stick

Last but not least, removable decor and decorations for walls and more are here to stay.  

You’ll continue to see vinyl decor for walls spring up, with a variety of different application. Bathroom wall decor will become increasingly popular and custom. Decals for laundry room. Decals for bedrooms. Home offices, playrooms. Kids rooms and more.

From creative displays of vinyl decals on unique objects such as butcher paper, to decals for wine glasses, coffee mugs and more, vinyl isn’t just for walls anymore. Simply find a unique design and a stickable surface and the options are endless.

One of our favorite ways to display a wall decal is to use a butcher paper roller. This one, made by Rettel, is a great option! This roller allows you to display different wall decals quickly and easily. Change them out by season, or whenever you'd like a fresh look. They are so much fun!

No matter what trends come and go in 2021, the trend that is going to stay in style the longest is the one you make your own.

Like peel-and-stick wallpaper, vinyl wall decor is here to stay, meaning you can have your personalized and flexible decorating options to stay on trend — and on budget — in 2021 and beyond.
