Scandi Is 2021’s Biggest Home Office Design Trend

A Scandi design home office with white walls, a wooden desk, chair, and shelves, and several plants.

Most people are working from home these days, which means makeshift office spaces have sprung up everywhere. If you’re planning to take the plunge and create a new workspace, or redo an existing one, you might want to look into Scandi design, 2021’s latest office trend.

Rated People looked at Instagram photos of popular office spaces to determine which were the most common design elements. The site checked office wall and floor colors and materials, desks, chairs, shelving, decorations, and the number of plants in the space.

After all was considered, it appeared most home offices leaned toward a Scandi (Scandinavian) design. This style blends function and simplicity with beauty, and embraces cozy features in neutral colors. Think hygge meets function. The concept sounds pretty ideal for an office, right? It’s minimal and clean, but not cold.

Within the overall Scandi trend for offices, Rated People also found certain elements were more popular than others. White walls, simple wooden desks and floating shelves, and plants were the most popular features on Instagram.

If you’re curious what else is trending in home office design, you can check out the rest of the findings over on Rated People.

Scandi not your style? No problem! There are tons of other décor ideas you can explore.
