5 Must-Buys for Your Home in 2021

With each new year comes the opportunity to look into what our favourite décor trends over the past year have been, as well as consider what the top trends over the next 12 months will be. 2020 and the massive lifestyle changes consumers faced saw the emergence of more grassroot trends for home décor than any year previous. As we spend more time in our homes than ever before, it is imperative that we make them a space that we fully enjoy. With that said, here are our top five décor must-buys to make staying at home a pleasure instead of a chore.

Luxurious Soft Furnishings

5 Must-Buys for Your Home

5-must-buys-for-your-home-in-2021 – Let’s start off with an easy one. Soft furnishings such as cushions, throws and curtains are an affordable yet brilliant new addition to your home because they offer much-needed comfort and warmth, as well as softening any harsh lines in your décor. If a new sofa is out of your price range this year yet you’re itching for a change, something as simple as adding new scatter cushions and draping fleecy throws in bright hues can dramatically change the look of the suite.

Artwork You Really Love

5 Must-Buys for Your Home

Since art galleries are still closed, what better idea than to create an exclusive exhibition of your own curation in your own home? There are plenty of resources online that offer high quality art prints at affordable prices, which make for a fantastic gallery wall when mixed in with personal photographs and sentimental memorabilia. 

Houseplants to Bring the Outdoors Inside

Seeing greenery has proven benefits for your mental health, but if you’re unable to get out and about as much as you would like, you can still enjoy nature’s bounty with a selection of easy-care houseplants. Spider plants are super easy to care for as they change colour when they need watering; cacti are easy going in a bright spot, and the ZZ plant is virtually indestructible. Not green fingered at all? Buy faux plants – we won’t tell anyone!

New Radiators to Keep You Cosy

If you, like many of us, have painted every wall and rearranged every piece of furniture in your room and something still isn’t quite right, it’s very possible that an old and dingy radiator is what’s letting you down. Swapping out your old rusty one for a more efficient and aesthetically pleasing model is surprisingly easy with the help of a YouTube tutorial – and they’re more affordable than you might think when you buy online from a reputable manufacturer like stelrad.com.

Great Lighting to Brighten Your Space

Last, but by no means least, swap out your lighting. You’ll thank us later. Whether you opt for rope lights, a stylish new flush mount fitting or simply change up the shade on your pendant style, updating the lighting in your home can have a massively positive impact on the overall look of your space.

However you choose to update your home this year, make sure you choose pieces that you really love, and not just because something is trendy. After all, you’re the one living in your home!
