What will be the biggest DIY trends in 2021? The team at easyToolhire has researched the hottest trends for the coming 12 months. Read on and discover what will be big so that you can get ahead of the curve…

•According to Houzz, lockdown number one caused many people to look at their homes and gardens. This trend will continue in 2021. As restrictions lift and summer approaches, you will dream of creating a relaxing outdoor space to entertain friends and family. So, if you want the perfect space to create an outdoor bar, a smooth patio for a hot tub or an immaculate lawn for sunbathing, don’t delay.

•An Upwork survey revealed that working from home would continue to be “the norm”. This will lead to an increase in demand for the perfect home office. Have you thought about converting your loft, spare bedroom or garden building into an efficient work space? You’re not alone. Multi-functional spaces will be big news so get creative with how you divide your home and make it work for you. 

•Pantone has decided that it is going to have not one but TWO Colors of the Year – PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. According to the Pantone Color Institute, this colour combo oozes resilience and hope. Ultimate Gray evokes memories of pebbles on the beach whilst Illuminating embodies the sun. Likewise, we are dreaming of sunny beach days too. 

•We’re back in the garden… according to Love the Garden, the garden should be an extension of your home and your interior and exterior should work in harmony. If your garden is going to be an “extra living room” then consider creating extra shelters and think about how you will heat and illuminate the space. Bonnie Plants estimates that 80 per cent of you who took up gardening in 2020 have said you want to do more. If you’re looking to renovate the garden or wish to rotavate the soil to create a vegetable patch, easyToolhire, thanks to its strong and local partner network, has the tools you need to do the job.

•I’m dreaming of a white… kitchen. Again, according to Houzz, coronavirus has fuelled a desire for clean looking spaces. This year, white kitchens are set to be big, with homeowners looking for one of the most important rooms in the house to be neutral and enhance the light. White cupboards, natural wood worktops and feature cabinetry are popular trends to look for. If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen, easyToolhire, thanks to its strong and local partner network, has the tools you need to do the job.
