Cottagecore, dark green walls and dried flowers are among some of the biggest home decor trends predicted to be huge in 2021.

Research conducted by the team at Roofing Megastore analysed Google Trends data to track the home trends throughout 2020 showing the biggest uplift in interest. Whether you’re planning a complete overhaul next year or want to redecorate a tired-looking room, let these trends inspire your planning.

“With most of us spending more time at home than we ever have before, the interior design of our environment has never been so important,” Gian-Carlo Grossi, Managing Director at Roofing Megastore, said.

“It’s easy to see why Cottagecore and some of the other styles that connect us to the outside world and nature are increasing in popularity – roof windows can dramatically improve an inside space by making it feel lighter and more spacious, and with the country now in a second lockdown, a little light at the end of the tunnel is something we could all probably do with.”
