Home design trends to watch for in 2021

It seems like every year we take a look at our house and think about what we want to upgrade. Maybe this is the year you get a better TV or replace that old couch. Maybe this year you tackle some kitchen renovations or create the outdoor entertaining space of your dreams1 Want to get ahead of the curve? Thinking about adding some cool and useful features in your home? Check out this list of some of the top design trends in 2021 by REALTORĀ® Magazine!

Separated spaces- Open floor design plans have been super popular in recent years, but due to the amount of folks who have transitioned from working in an office to working from home, features that included separate, more private space have a lot of appeal. Instead of wanting an open floor plan, buyers are looking for office space and secluded nooks for video calls and working peacefully. If you have an open floor plan, maybe it is time to think about ways to separate it up and create even the illusion of privacy.

Wood grain elements- Natural wood shelving is a great feature to have in the kitchen to create that open and accented look. Folks are also opting for natural wood finishes on kitchen cabinets for the rustic, timeless look. Thinking about redoing your countertops? Wood countertops are also becoming increasingly popular!

Outdoor spaces- Patios, screened-in porches, fire pits, etc have all increased in popularity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Outdoor spaces are great for works in progress, as so much can be done. Build a fire pit and then a patio to go around it. Set up lighting. Work with the natural elements in your yard to create the outdoor oasis that will benefit you time and time again.
