5 Home Remodeling Trends to Watch for in 2021

After a challenging year, it’s safe to say we’re all happy to say goodbye to 2020. While we may only be a few weeks into the brand-new year, our team has already started to see some new home remodeling trends emerge for 2021. With that in mind, we wanted to share some of the trends we can’t wait to help our clients make their own this year. Check them out below!

Stunningly Scandinavian

Founded in the belief that there’s beauty in simplicity, Scandinavian design embodies a sense of minimalism and functionality. But simple doesn’t mean boring! The Scandinavian home remodeling trend is sure to add a touch of elegance to any home with creative storage solutions, neutral accents, and hygge-inspired textiles.

Rustic Meets Industrial

Move over Chip and Jo; today’s homeowners are leaning away from the well-loved farmhouse style and toward a rustic industrial vibe. While farmhouse design isn’t necessarily gone for good, it’s definitely transitioning into a more modern style. Hallmarks of this home remodeling trend include rustic design elements paired with warm earth tones and raw materials like glass, metal, and concrete.

Dedicated Home Offices and Flex Space

An increase in remote work and distance learning has left homeowners in need of dedicated work from home spaces. While home offices are sure to be at the top of many home remodeling project lists, some homes lack the square footage. Flex spaces allow homeowners to make the most of their existing space by assigning more than one purpose to a room. These multi-purpose areas add functionality and can double for both live/work purposes.

White on White

There’s a reason why the modern white home remains a popular trend year after year. With clean lines and a “light and bright” feel, this timeless home remodeling trend creates an air of sophistication that can’t be beaten. White design elements give small spaces the illusion of being larger and work especially well in areas lacking natural light from windows, such as kitchens. Homeowners can easily take this classic look up a notch with metallic finishes, statement lights, and wood accents.

Blending Indoor and Outdoor Living

Coming off the heels of a year where we spent more time at home than ever before, many homeowners are experiencing cabin fever. The solution? Extending indoor living areas into the great outdoors. We’re talking screened-in porches, patios and decks, outdoor kitchens, and more! Incorporating fireplaces or firepits into outdoor living spaces ensure they can be enjoyed well into the cold season.
