It is almost January and so the new housing trends for 2021 are springing up like mushrooms. A material that has made a huge appearance in recent years and fits well within the trends of 2021 is bamboo. Bamboo has been popular for a botanical or natural interior for a long time, but for 2021 bamboo will go further.

Bamboo is a versatile material. Almost anything can be made out of bamboo, from medicines to biofuel and from edible bamboo shoots and clothing to building materials. There are more than 1000 products options out of bamboo. The demand for bamboo is increasing worldwide because the trend in recent years is increasingly towards sustainable and natural. In addition to the natural living styles such as Scandinavian and botanical, bamboo also fits into any other living style due to its different shapes and possibilities. As a fence, bamboo can give a cold and modern design warmth and natural character, but bamboo plywood can also be beautifully processed as a kitchen worktop.

In addition to being easy and versatile, bamboo is also good for the environment. Bamboo is an inexhaustible type of grass that can be cut five times faster than trees. Bamboo also absorbs 35% more CO2 than wood. Because of these statistics in combination with the increasing demand for sustainability, bamboo is a big hit. Yet for 2021, the demand for bamboo will go beyond its durability and versatility.

As mentioned, sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the world and in the interior industry, sustainability in design is now key. This is noticeable in the use of recycled materials, but also an increasing focus on environmentally neutral building materials such as bamboo. The biggest housing trend for 2021 is therefore a natural look. This trend is reflected in the increasingly popular Scandinavian style, in which wood, dried flowers and neutral colors play the leading role. It is also noticeable that more and more use is made of wood or bamboo as a small addition in the sturdy industrial style. It is therefore to be expected that in 2021 more and more bamboo, wood and rattan will return indoors and outdoors in the interior and design. With these natural elements, your home will get the atmosphere and warmth that we exactly need in 2021.
