Change is on the horizon for 2021 and beyond in the sphere of custom home design trends. Expect some of the minimalistic and cool trends of the past to be replaced with more approachable designs that convey warmth, comfort, and positivity. Darker colors with more natural textiles, like wood and soft lighting, are nice ways to make a room feel more inviting and warm. Read on for a few tips to bring some warmth and comfort into your custom home design this year!
Determine the Color Schemes
For a lot of years, cool color schemes have dominated the world of home design. White kitchens, gray walls, or black countertops were the top choices from homebuilders or renovators. People have now grown a bit tired of these styles and are looking to add warmer colors and materials into their homes. Colors with yellow undertones are in very high demand, from wall paint to furniture and beyond. Warmer accent colors are now being used by top home designers in décor like accent pillows or throw blankets, including softer yellow and rich cinnamons. Bronze and brass are popular in accessories and hardware, along with mixed metals.
Updated Flooring Patterns
Flooring is the foundation of any room, providing plenty of opportunities to update your space to bring in warmth. Since organic materials usually convey warmth, hardwood flooring is a worthwhile investment. Although warm hues are trending, the visually intricate and interesting wooden grains could be enhanced with any other color stain. Hardwood floors are a good choice, and not only do they add a warm element to any space, but they feel warmer on the feet than tile or laminate flooring too.
Analyze Your Lighting
Lighting can add or detract from the feeling of warmth in any of your custom home’s spaces. Natural light sources are welcome, too, so make sure to open up shades to illuminate spaces. Of course, additional light sources are necessary, so consider how the overhead, task, or accent lighting can work best in areas. Wired, wall scones and lamps will transform the rooms and are easy to install. Finally, when looking at lighting options, consider the kind of bulbs you use and opt for choices that project warmer light.
