I think it’s safe to say, the vast majority of us are eagerly anticipating 2021. We’re all ready to say goodbye to 2020 and start a new, better and promising year. Surely it can’t be any worse than 2020! At least we hope not anyway!


As we look ahead to 2021, you might be thinking about making some home improvements. We’ve all been stuck at home for longer than we’d like this year, bored of looking at the same 4 walls, so maybe you’d like to change things up. Why not revolutionise and rejuvenate your home with some brand-new window blinds to give your home a completely new look, feel and ambiance? In this blog we’ll be looking at just some of the trends to look out for in 2021.


The Natural Look

The first trend we can see for 2021 is the natural look. That includes natural-looking fabrics and textures. Whether it’s real or faux materials, the natural look might be just what your home needs in 2021. To create a natural look, many people are using greenery matched with wooden or bamboo blinds. No matter the room, these pair perfectly together for a stunning natural look.


Colours of Nature

The trend of having a natural look doesn’t just stop with some greenery and textures. We can expect colours found in nature to be a big hit in 2021 as well. As mentioned, deep greens will be popular but also other colours associated with Mother Nature, such as blues and earthy colours are expected to be used across all aspects of interior design including window blinds.


Pop of Colour

We’ve seen this creep in over the last couple of years, but definitely in 2021 you can expect to see a lot of bold, dramatic pops of colour. Whether it’s accent pieces such as pillows, velvet chairs or indeed window blinds, striking colours look like it’s the way to go next year. In particular, deep colours like burgundy and forest green are very much on trend, so why not bring this bold look in to your home with some window blinds in these colours.


Daring Prints

In the same vein as the previous trend, in 2021 we can expect to see bold, brave patterns used. The important things to note with this is that often less is more. Choosing a brave pattern for one piece of furniture or one window blind will make that the feature of the room and instantly be the focal point. It can look a little too much if you have several different daring patterns in the one room, so make sure to keep it to a minimum.


A shift in Neutrals to Greige

Beige has always been a popular colour for interior design as well as grey in recent years, but in 2021 it’s all about greige tones – grey and beige together. Why not use Greige along with some of the other trends mentioned here such as a pop of colour or bold pattern. It’s the perfect neutral colour to breath warmth in to your home as well as luxury and style.


Modern Home Technology

Modern home technology is expected to continue to be popular in 2021. Just about everything in the home can now be controlled by a remote or an app, so why not your window blinds? Quite honestly, electric blinds suit everyone. They’re convenient, energy efficient, modern and they make life that bit easier. They’re a fantastic way to take advantage of technology in your home and a great first step into smart home automation.


Ordinarily, they maintain the same look as traditional blinds but have an inbuilt system that allows them to mechanically roll up and down. This gives you the ultimate convenience – being able to control the light and privacy within a room without ever leaving your seat. Once reserved for those with large budgets, they have now become an affordable and attainable option for the everyday homeowner and expected to be popular in 2021.
