This creates new architectural trends and changes the industry as a whole. The same thing is happening now. The architectural trends 2020 and 2021 have one thing in common: a commitment to sustainable technology development, lifecycle extension and the use of architectural elements with a long lifespan. Society as a whole is evolving towards ecological commitments. Trends in modern architecture are therefore also a kind of social manifestation.
The use of recycled materials, buildings with self-sufficient energy, installations and technologies with which we respect our planet is becoming more and more common. But there are other trends in architecture that deserve our attention. Most of these trends are expected to turn into modern architecture and design. Therefore, we recommend that you carefully study each trend.
1. Developing green designs
Many are waiting for the development of greening technologies in urban areas. The green design uses environmentally friendly methods, materials and furnishings. The development of this trend can be followed over the past few years. The use of green plants, natural and recycled materials will be a big boom trend in big cities.
To meet current demand, contractors are gradually switching to more durable materials and equipment. By extending the useful life and lifespan of the materials and equipment used, the amount of waste can be reduced. Therefore, device manufacturers are also striving to develop devices that increase productivity without harming the environment.
2. Smart and automated homes
The use of automation tools has increased both in renovations and in new buildings. Automated systems that regulate light, temperature and security in the home will only be in greater demand in 2021 and 2022. A smart home offers its users more convenience and lower consumption bills. The development and increasing implementation of smart home technologies and artificial intelligence in everyday life reflect a social and ecological awareness that is geared towards protecting the environment and intelligent consumption.
3. Focus on the kitchen
The kitchen is still the focus of our everyday life, which is especially true in times of COVID. Here we prepare food, spend time with our loved ones, play with children and meet guests. The kitchen area has become the focal point of the house over the years. Even when the housing market is changing, architects and designers attach great importance to the dining area. Global furnishing trends for 2021 are therefore highlighting the kitchen, expanding its size and connecting it with the dining and living areas. If possible, place the kitchen island in the middle. It can serve as a bar counter for receiving guests and for breakfast, as well as optically separating the relaxation area when the space is combined from the kitchen and living room.
4. Spa area in the bathroom
Many architects and designers give the bathroom "a special meaning". The bathroom is no longer just a place for personal hygiene and body care. It has developed into a place to relax and unwind after a hard day's work. More and more people are taking the time to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with themselves. A bathroom whose design and furnishings harmonize with your vision and inner world is the perfect place to relax.
A modern bathroom is much more than a traditional bathroom – it is a real spa that we can have in our home to enjoy a time of relaxation. New bathroom trends are based on coverings in very light or white colors, with tiles that make cleaning easier and convey calm and serenity. The shower becomes the protagonist of the bathroom, be it a hydromassage cabin or a shower with a screen. It is important that every element of the bathroom is the right size and comfortable to use. Simple setup and a houseplant create the right atmosphere to enjoy your daily grooming.
5. Industrial style
Typically, industrialism is associated with the use of iron, aluminum, wood, and even recycled plastic to reduce construction costs. It is characterized by asymmetrical shapes, the absence of surface elements and simple lines. And you will see even more such constructions and buildings in the future as it is one of the major architectural trends today.
