After a year of spending more time at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many homeowners are looking for ways to make their homes fit their new realities. Open floor plans are out; dedicated spaces for remote work and learning are in. Yards are being transformed into entertainment spaces and walls are being repainted.
Here are three trends to watch for this 2021 home-remodeling season.
1. A focus on dedicated spaces
2. Making room for home offices
To add home offices to residences, “homeowners aren’t adding square footage,” says Doug King, owner of King Contracting, a design-build firm in St. Petersburg, Florida, and president of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. “Rather, they’re taking out rarely used closets, like in the hallway, and moving interior walls to make space.”
3. More outdoor living
One cure for that cooped-up feeling is outdoor living areas.
“People want their backyards to be their oasis,” King says. In his area, he says pools are the No. 1 thing being added to backyards. Outdoor kitchens and fire pits are the next most popular and you can really reap the benefits and enhance the outside experience of an outdoor living area with a custom low maintenance Patio Cover. Simply put, home owners are looking to create an outdoor oasis.
Homeowners spending more time at home may also start to seek out remodeling projects that bring beautiful outdoor views inside — for instance, by installing larger Panoramic windows or glass doors that let in more natural light.
