Just like any other industry, the field of remodeling sees a lot of change through the years. Different trends go in and out of style as the needs, preferences, and lifestyles of the masses evolve. It makes sense, therefore, that the events of 2020 have had a major hand in what we’re seeing in the renovation industry as we move further into 2021.
When life as we knew it was thrown into chaos, we had to adjust our living spaces to provide the comfort and normalcy we were suddenly lacking. Check out the trends that have emerged in home remodeling as we continue to adapt!
More time spent at home has had us looking for places where we can find relaxation and rejuvenation—and the bathroom has come in at one of the top spots. For the sake of creating a tranquil escape, homeowners have become just as willing to make big bathroom renovations as they are smaller updates. Some of the most popular features so far include large soaking tubs, steam showers, temperature control floors, aromatherapy showerheads, bidets, and more attractive tiling.
As many of us are still stuck in our homes indefinitely, we’re turning to warm, organic touches to make our spaces more inviting. Over the course of the year, you can expect to see more natural elements in home design, such as wood countertops and cabinets, natural textiles (rattan, wool, jute, bamboo), and warm and earthy color schemes and finishes. Especially in the kitchen, which serves as the heart of the home for many households, these natural accents will help us feel more at ease at home.
The work-from-home movement that followed quarantine orders has pushed the need for a dedicated workspace to the forefront of our priorities. Doubling up in the living room or kitchen for a 9-5 workday or 8-hour virtual school session just isn’t cutting it anymore. People need a separate area in the house where they can focus and get down to business. That’s why, in 2021, homeowners are adding new rooms, carving out nooks, and updating current setups to accommodate the need for a functional and welcoming home office.
