Interior Design Trends for Your 2021 Office Remodel

With COVID-19 forcing a quarantine, you may have spent an extended period of time away from the office or your retail shop. Upon your return it was more apparent than ever, it’s time for a design upgrade. With 2021 right around the corner, now is as good a time as ever to change up the style and vibe of your work environment to welcome the new year. Take a look at some of the hottest interior design trends for 2021.


1. Naval Color

In 2021, Naval is going to replace the traditional white, grey and beige in office settings, being referred to as the “new neutral.” While it was the 2020 Sherwin Williams Color of the Year, it will continue it’s reign as a hot hue into the new year. Naval is a deeper variation of navy blue and feels elegant while creating contemporary spaces.

2. Texture

Texture in interior design, whether actual or illusion, is unexpected when it comes to commercial spaces. It invites dimension into a room and alleviates the sterile environment that can sometimes be found in an office setting. Play with texture on the walls, floors, or furniture with differing materials such as marble, stone, wall panels, or wooden beams. If you’re looking for something more cost-effective or less permanent, you can opt for stretch fabric which can give the visual effect of texture. 

3. Minimalism

Less is more. Minimalism helps create a calm environment and provides a “blank canvas” for creative thinking. This design philosophy allows you to be selective in the decor you add to a room by ensuring every piece has a utility. A decluttered space reduces stress and anxiety, which is why this is a popular trend for many businesses.

4. Neutrals

Just as Naval creates an atmosphere that’s classy and sleek, so can traditional neutrals. The advantage of using a neutral color in your base design means you have many options when it comes to furnishing and decorating the space, and the flexibility to create warm and cool color schemes.

 5. Plants

Whether live or faux, plants add life to any space. There are many low-maintenance options that make keeping plants in a commercial environment more attainable. Another plus, live plants help replenish oxygen in the air, more oxygen equals more brain power.

Don’t have the space or a green thumb to have plants in your business? You can incorporate them into design and paint them on the wall or install a plant-patterned stretch fabric as an alternative.




6. Statement Pieces

A statement piece is meant to do exactly as it sounds, make a statement. These are typically attractive, exciting, and eye-catching pieces that people notice when they walk into a room. A lot of businesses will add statement pieces to their design as a conversation starter so there is immediately something for them and their customer to talk about. 

7. Large Windows

Large windows invite natural light into your work environment and, while this adds a nice light for ambiance this isn’t just a positive for your aesthetics. Harvard Business Review published the findings of a study that states “access to natural light and views of the outdoors are the number one attribute of the workplace environment.” So, not only are large windows a nice design feature, they can also add to employee happiness, which everyone benefits from.

8. Personality Designs

Having your office or shop designed to reflect your personality and style is an interior decor trend that is becoming widely embraced. It allows you to transform your work space into something that you personally like and tells your customers a bit about you.

From paint color to furniture, you can choose the styles and colors that are comfortable to you while also helping increase your productivity.

CLIPSO Adds Creative Touch To Napa Wine History Museum

Our Partner, CLIPSO, Adds A Creative Touch To The Napa Wine History Museum

Our stretch fabric partner, CLIPSO, recently renovated the Napa Wine History Musem with the installation of unique and creatively designed stretch fabric ceilings, that otherwise couldn’t be done to this level of perfection.

CLIPSO uses only the finest materials and provides limitless combinations of fabric types, colors, patterns, textures, print capabilities, acoustics, and tack-able cores to create a masterfully-skilled, custom-printed solution that would normally involve using an extremely expensive and time-consuming painted piece.

Stretch fabrics can easily set the mood for any room. For example, CLIPSO upgraded this tasting room by adding hints of history and storytelling throughout the ceiling by printing a vintage map of Napa County, and with the additional stretch fabric benefits like it’s optimized interior acoustics, you can easily enjoy a nice glass of wine without other 1881 Napa patrons disrupting your palette. 

We are proud to be partnered with CLIPSO and NOVAWALL stretch fabrics to provide completely-customized masterpieces that are easily applied to your home or business. From adding a slight personal touch to an extensive expression of creativity, we can cover any surface of your space with our long-lasting, sustainable stretch fabric materials.
