The impact of 2020 on the home renovation trends for 2021 is clear to see. With many of us have spent even more time in our homes over the past year or so, improving our living spaces has been a priority. Let’s take a look at top home renovations which are popular for 2021.
Hot Trend for Home Offices
During 2020, workers across the nation took to their dining room tables, breakfast bars, and bedrooms in search of suitable space to work from home. This limited space was often also shared with students working online.
With many companies now deciding to keep at least an element of homeworking as part of their structure, homeworking is here to stay. As a result, 2021 is the year households are prioritising investing in creating dedicated workspaces.
Creating home office nooks, converting understairs cupboards, and adding garden rooms are all renovation options for those establishing a suitable work-life balance in their homes. Every space must work hard for households balancing work and home life.
With bright yellow being one of Pantone’s colours of 2021, it is no surprise that other bright colours are a hot trend too. The combination of two primary colours popping out from a muted background is helping lift the spirits this year. More than just a decorative factor, the demand for colour is being seen in home renovations too.
We are seeing stronger colours making an appearance in unconventional places. For example, designer radiator supplier Stelrad has seen a great demand for its range of colourful radiators including blue, yellow, and green, as well as the increasingly popular grey. Kitchens with full green or blue cabinetry have been a huge trend for 2021. Even coloured cookers are starting to make an entrance into the kitchen redesigns.
Another result of working and learning at home is a move away from open plan spaces. The need for quiet, focused areas has led to an increase in partitioned rooms.
Renovating rooms to allow for functional flexibility demands creativity. Using sliding or concertina doors allows for adaptability while frosted glass walls or panels continue to let light through.
Homeowners are now more demanding in how a space works for them, and the future of home design will have to meet these expectations.
With households turning to their gardens for recreation, socialising, and working, garden renovations are a top priority. An unprecedented demand for garden buildings has made purchasing summerhouses, garden rooms, and log cabins difficult.
As a result, DIY construction of outdoor living spaces has increased. Garden offices, pergola-covered decks, and hot tub gazebos are among the most popular garden projects of the year.
With the need for more living space and the desire to socialise in more ventilated areas, the garden renovation boom is set to continue.
One of the most popular home renovation trends for the last few years, bifold doors continue to hold their own.
The ability to open the doors wide and merge the inside with the outside has had even greater appeal while time at home has increased. Add to this the newly recognised importance of good household ventilation for good health, and the reasons for bifold doors popularity are ever-growing.
