Top Five Instagram Home Trends

Getting your home ready to sell is one of the most instrumental parts of a sale; creating a welcoming environment for your potential buyers where they can envision themselves living and enjoying the property.

In recent years, Instagram has become the go-to for home décor inspiration, with accounts growing their followings by sharing DIY tips and recommendations of where to shop for home products. 

Keep on reading to discover the most popular Instagram home trends – whether you’re getting ready to sell or gathering ideas for your new home.

Gallery walls

Hallways, living rooms and kitchens have all been overhauled by this trend, injecting personality into previously featureless rooms. Choose from a range of print styles such as quotes and graphics to create a bespoke gallery wall, tailored to your specific taste. Customise by coordinating and contrasting the colour of frames used with other metals and shades in the room.

Top tip: keep previous prints in the back of the frame so they can easily be changed to suit your mood and style.

Panelling

Wood panelling was all the rage back in the mid-20th century, before going out of fashion in the decades after. Whether you choose to panel half a wall or go floor to ceiling, it will bring a sense of traditional yet contemporary style to your home.

Top tip: use MDF to panel your walls instead of wood for a more budget-friendly option. 

Rattan

There seems to be a growing love for more natural home accessories during 2020, and rattan is certainly one of them. The weaved material fits in perfectly with a neutral aesthetic and can add texture with simple accessories such as a rattan lampshade, or make a bigger statement with larger items such as chairs, tables and even beds.

Top tip: regularly buff rattan items with a dust cloth to keep them looking their best.

Floating shelves

A simplistic style of shelving designed to hide the fittings required to keep them on the wall. Dress your floating shelves with baskets for storing those fiddly items, or show off your favourite candles and ornaments.

Top tip: less is more… filling shelves with lots of items can make your home look cluttered.

Macramé

Made by knotting fabrics, macramé has taken the interiors world by storm and has replaced the previous tapestry trends. Larger designs can be used as focal points in rooms to add texture, with smaller designs adding to a room as an accessory. 

Top tip: have a go at macramé yourself, it can be far more rewarding having your own art displayed in your home!
