Home Renovation Trends to look out for in 2021

Private Villa

Every year, the vibe in the design industry shifts, making way for new trends. As we step into the exciting year 2021, our design team has put together renovation trends that will come to dominate in the coming months. Home renovation is also a challenging aspect with its many constraints and client aspirations unique to the renovation industry itself. GDM Interiors is one of the top home interior design companies in Dubai, handling many home renovation projects.

We personally believe that the COVID-19 pandemic and the change in lifestyle that became normal in 2020 will have a significant impact on the renovation trends of 2021.

Renovation Trends of 2021


With most of the industrial and IT workforce moving to work from home (WFH), home-offices have become a necessity rather than a luxury. Today, every residential interior design project comes with a design requirement of dedicating a nook for home-office or workspaces. The same goes for home renovation projects where the clients are looking to transform a portion of their home into an office or even a temporary space where they can work when needed. Home renovation projects also aim at enhancing the functionality of a particular space such as the basement, living room, or a guestroom to become a workspace for WFH.

Nature-centric Solutions

The clientele we have met in the last few months is extremely conscious about the environment and looks for green/eco-friendly solutions for their home renovation projects. Right from reducing their dependence on the grid and moving to renewable sources such as wind and solar to incorporating green initiatives such as rainwater harvesting, energy-efficient lighting, and HVAC upgrades, the scope is endless. We can also expect home renovations to be nature-centric with many indoor plants working their way into the homes. The house interior design industry in Dubai has to be on its toes to cater to the green solution end of home renovation projects.

Luxury in Small Spaces

Another major trend in home renovation for the year 2021 is the challenge of incorporating luxury in small spaces. Clients are looking for small bespoke luxurious elements such as a luxurious bathroom to relax or a home garden space on the balcony that they can unwind after a hard day. Many are also opting to redo the interior of their homes to make them look more open and spacious. We expect lighter wood tones, bigger tile sizes, and neutral/grey palette to become the focal points in such renovation trends. GDM Interiors, as one of the leading house interior design companies in Dubai, has already started to see this shift in interest towards these palettes.
