According to a recent study by Rated People, since the start of the pandemic, 55 per cent of the workforce had no choice but to work from home. In addition, 15 per cent admitted that they used their bedroom as a makeshift office space, thus introducing the stresses of daily life into what should be a sanctuary

Bedrooms are centered around individual tastes, coupled with more intimate, ergonomic designs. Unlike the rest of the home where interior design is crafted with large families, visitors, or gatherings in mind, a bedroom caters to one or a couple of people. Therefore, it should be a sanctuary, a place to rest and recuperate.

Let’s look at the top five interior trends for the bedroom in 2021.

The Marie Kondo effect, which talks about keeping only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy, is still with us. It promotes tidying up and a refocus of our environments with the intention to reduce stress levels. Without a doubt, it is a response to the chaos and uncertainty of the pandemic. The phrase “less is more” is the new fashion in 2021. It helps to generate a calmer, neutralized environment.

The right window dressing is a key component in making the most of the natural light in your home. Roller blinds in a sheer or semi-sheer fabric can filter and diffuse light throughout a room. At the same time, they take the edge off direct sunlight. On the other hand, voile curtains create a light and breezy feel with the added benefit of providing a level of daytime privacy. Wooden shutters are a functional solution to controlling natural light. They provide you with the total freedom over the amount of light you wish to let in.
