Your Ultimate Home Renovation Guide: The Top 8 Home Remodel Trends in 2021
Written by Jason Lawson on June 21, 2021
Trends in home renovation come quickly and leave just as fast. That’s why it’s important you know the hottest trends of the year and the ones that are built to last. With the Covid-19 pandemic, we all were forced to get comfortable in our homes. This isolation sparked many of these home renovation trends and we don’t see them leaving any time soon. Keep your home up to date with these 10 renovations that are sure to impress.

1. Home Office Space

Through the many lows of Covid-19, one good thing came from the pandemic- remote work. At one time or another, most people were relegated to work from home. This led to the creation of home office space. This renovation is great because it doesn’t require any additional square footage. Instead, by moving walls or converting closets, a home office is seamlessly created.

2. Bright Colors

Minimalist trends are out and have been replaced by bright, bold colors. Consider adding a bright color as an accent wall in your living room or painting your kitchen cabinets a striking blue or green. Bring excitement and fun back into your home with a splash of color.

3. Closed Floorplans

At the end of 2019 and start of 2020, before the pandemic hit, the trend of open floor plans was rising. After all, we weren’t in our homes all that much, so why not make it a fluid social space?

This all changed with the pandemic. Now, more dedicated spaces are making an appearance on the home renovation front. Every place in the home has a purpose with closed floorplans. We see this trend sticking around for a while now that remote work has become a normalized practice that’s sure to stay at least part time.

4. Outdoor Spaces

Beyond the inside of the home, backyards, patios, and balconies are getting a ton of attention and TLC in 2021. These open-air spaces were the only places we could escape from our homes for many months through the pandemic.

This led many people to renovate their drab outdoor spaces into hangout areas and places for recreation. Consider adding a pool, fire pit, or just a nice large table for gatherings with family and friends.

5. Natural Light Solutions

We’re seeing homeowners prioritizing natural light within the home. From installation of large windows to the removal of black-out curtains, natural light is at the top of the list of must-have renovations.

Additions of new windows can be a great way to invite natural light into your house and get some much-needed vitamin D. If you aren’t ready to install an additional window, you can still follow this trend by adding artificial lighting around your home that mimics the natural light you would’ve achieved through use of a window. Hanging lights are a great way to add a pop of design along with a burst of light.

6. Patterns

Like we said earlier, minimalism is out and maximalism is in. Consider adding various patterns as pops of intrigue to the rooms of your home. If you really feel like livening up your space, go ahead and mix patterns. Try out stripes or gingham print. It’s not for everyone, but the maximalist trend can serve as an interesting design choice for those feeling bored of neutral colors and clean lines.

7. Geometric Shapes

Throw away those clean lines. Geometric and curvaceous shapes are in when it comes to the home. These sculptural shapes are also in tune with the maximalist approach we see growing as a trend. Consider adding a wavy wash of paint to the wall or a geometric piece of furniture to your home. These shapes create an interesting feel to the space that allows your eyes to wander from one design and shape to the next. 

8. Kitchen Upgrades

We’ve cooked from our homes more than ever this past year. With this, kitchen renovations big and small are sure to be an ongoing trend. Consider increasing the functionality of your kitchen by adding in a larger kitchen island.

While the other rooms of the house may be closed off, separated, and designated to a certain task, the kitchen will become a multi-tasking space. Update your appliances, add counters, cupboards, and shelves. Even consider opening up the space with the addition of a table for guests to socialize at while the meal is being prepared.

Have Fun!

Your home is a representation of yourself and your style. Have fun while creating additional spaces, bringing in new colors and patterns, and sprucing up your home. These trends are a great place to start and can give you an idea of what to let your contractor know about crafting your new home update.
