After spending so much time at home in 2020, many of us had a renewed focus on our interiors and put a lot of effort into improving them. After all, if it is where you spend more time than ever, it makes sense to do it in nice surroundings! Whilst many industries understandably struggled, those of DIY, home improvements and interior design all saw a huge boom. The majority of the retail element was able to be conducted online, making it a safe transaction for all although some shops were classified as essential and could therefore continue trading as (almost) normal.
So perhaps you caught the bug in 2020 and want to ensure your home looks cutting edge in 2021. Or maybe you’re a little late to the party and want 2021 to be your year to have a stunning home. Whatever your motivation, take a look at our keys to a good house interior in 2021:
The devil is in the detail
It’s quite easy to focus on all the big stuff in your house; sofas, wall coverings, flooring, colour schemes etc. But once those are sorted, you need to think about the other bits which get all too easily overlooked. Think about elements such as your doors, for example. These are actually quite a major addition to any home but are something that can be ignored as being insignificant enough to have a real impact. In fact, changing them can make a huge and fundamental difference to the whole look of your home so why not browse the door range at Internal Doors UK? You’ll find plenty of styles to choose from as well as competitive pricing.
Consider your well-being
Wellness and good mental health were extremely important in 2020 for obvious reasons given the scale of the issues faced. This change in our awareness, acceptance, understanding of the struggles ensured we all focused on the more important things such as self-care and this ‘trend’ looks set to carry on well in 2021. Think about colour schemes as different colours can promote productivity or serenity. Add some plants into the spaces as these also promote health benefits too. Think about how you want to live your life in your home and work it to suit you, rather than it just looking good and the better layout will instantly make it feel better which is what home should really be about.
Create an area for working
With many of us working from home completely for the majority of 2020, many staff and employers have realised the benefits this purports for all. A better work-life balance leads to happier staff and improved productivity due to fewer interruptions increases commercial output. It can also result in lower overheads for companies and has forced people to adapt and change their surroundings such as ordering modern furniture which is good for productivity. It looks as though many companies will allow staff to continue working from home for at least part of the week so ensure you have the right set up which allows you to work comfortably and properly from home.
Make these changes and you will be all set to have a stylish, functional and happy home life in 2021.
