Karl Lohnes: Home design trends to look forward to in 2021

Article content

After almost a year of spending the majority of my time at home, I’m ready for some changes in 2021. The new year, although still a couple of months away, will bring new decorating opportunities, and now’s the time to plan out what changes you want to prioritize to make your home look fabulous and function better for how you use it now.

Ready for a new look? Nothing can freshen your space faster than incorporating a few new trends. So, if you’re like me and ready to say goodbye to 2020, then say hello to these three big 2021 trends.

Industrial surfaces

To add a sense of earthy comfort, look for rustic and natural finishes for surfaces like bathroom shower walls, kitchen counters and fireplace mantels. This week, quartz surface manufacturer Silestone launched the Loft Collection, with five new colours inspired by industrial design and features found in raw loft interiors.

A fave of mine is Seaport; a dark, worn cement look. It would be a chic way to add a casual, industrial vibe to a modern farmhouse kitchen. Or you could clad a fireplace wall with it for a touch of industrial chic in a modern condo. While real concrete tends to require a lot of maintenance (and can crack over time), a solid quartz surface is virtually maintenance free and ultra durable.
