Hopefully, 2021 will be a year when mankind could finally leave the discomfort of the pandemic behind. As the employment rate rises across the globe, people will want to redecorate their houses and apartments to add a bit of luxury to them.
If you’re wondering what’s going to be hip in 2021, here are the top 9 luxury addition for your home.
Beds and canopies
A framed bed might seem like a décor piece straight out of Versailles but the style is making a comeback.
Owners of small apartments might throw away the ideas of a canopy bed right away but custom-ordering the bed means you get to choose its width and height.
More and contemporary interior design projects incorporate a framed bed, so why not furnish your bedroom with a canopy bed to feel like a king!
Blue is the new black
In terms of colors, 2021 is going to be a blue year. We all felt blue in 2020 but this year, our walls should feel a surge of the blue palette.
Moreover, the calm, subtle tone of blue can be used for furniture as well, as a blue sofa is considered a bold interior design move.
When repainting individual rooms, make sure the shade of blue on the ceiling is a bit darker than the one used on the walls to add a sense of spaciousness to a cramped apartment.
Four decades ago…
If you loved watching Miami Vice or playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, then you’re in love with the ’80s.
2021 is the year when pinkish neon lights are making a comeback, so decorate every room from the man cave down in the basement to the bathroom with an 80’s vibe.
Yes, there are LED toilet bowl lights that’ll turn your water room into a disco. The décor is full of personality and it breathes an air of vintage identity.
One of the most popular sports in the 1980s was tennis. This year, you can feel like John McEnroe by building a tennis court in your backyard. If you own a large enough plot of land, the investment is cheaper than you might think at first.
Apart from racquets and tennis balls, you need to choose the type of court (grass is the most suitable surface for backyard courts), fence off the area and put up a net. For true luxury, you can install LED tennis court lights to feel like a real tennis star, playing after dark and all.
Do luxury and Minimalism go together?
A luxury minimalistic design might sound like an oxymoron but it’s more than viable in 2021. The design trend is based on slim, clear lines that add a dose of luxury to any living space. The bedroom and the living room stand to benefit the most from a minimalistic design with traits of luxury.
Make room for an interior garden
Outdoor gardens are a staple of exterior design but the inside of your home can benefit from a garden in the corner of the living room, for instance. Not only are houseplants regarded as self-care remedies but they are commonly found in luxurious homes.
Namely, plants need a lot of care to be verdant throughout the year. If you can afford all the pruning, watering, and sowing, then you must be well-off. As an extra benefit, greenery pumps in oxygen inside your home, doing away with the need for an air freshener.
Less (small-scale) artwork on the walls
If you wish your place to look homely, then hang your kids’ drawings from the wall. However, if you’re going for an opulent look in 2021, then the less artwork you display the better.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t hand any painting or framed photograph from the walls; just that they should be scaled up.
Adorn the walls of your home using a simple rule: one piece of artwork per wall surface. For instance, a large, two by one meter picture can hang above the living room couch.
Relocate the bedroom to the first floor
You probably already know that placing a bed directly under a window is bad Feng Shui. However, the bedroom should still have plenty of windows for natural light to penetrate inside.
If your master bedroom is located downstairs, you might want to consider relocating it to the first floor.
This way, you can convert the downstairs room into a leisure room or even a sunroom if it’s facing the backyard.
Extra room, extra fun!
Speaking of extra rooms, there are plenty of ideas about what an extra room could house. For homeowners who like to sweat it out without moving a finger, there’s a sauna if they decide to add an extra room.
S mention earlier, the basement is ideal for a man cave or even a private gym if you’re into fitness. If you have a hefty home improvement budget, then an indoor swimming pool is among the most luxurious home additions in 2021!
The year 2021 is certainly going to be the year of opulence, at least when it comes to interior and exterior décor. Any of the 9 luxury improvements listed above are suitable for your house or apartment, so why not give them a try. After all, how hard (and expensive) can it be to paint the walls blue, right?
