What home makeovers are happening in 2021?

Posted March 29, 2021  |   Topics: Home Financing & Renovation

The last year has impacted everything from the way we work to the way we shop. Home trends saw a big impact as our homes became our office, gym and classroom. The movement has continued into 2021 with the following home makeovers trending.

1. Create multi-generational housing.

One roof over a few generations often requires more space or reconfiguring what you already have. This home trend allows for grandparents to move in or creates rental space to help pay for the mortgage.

2. Separate home office.

As home became work, many people in 2020 and into 2021 needed to create a home office. And, with many jobs becoming permanently work-from-home, the desire to upgrade that space into a productive paradise continues.

3. Outdoor space.

Designing outside living space will continue to be a hot wish-list item. Somewhere to enjoy a meal on the deck, splash in the pool and most importantly, soak in sunshine.

4. Bathroom upgrades.

A big soaking tub or a new walk-in shower is topping many homeowners’ renovation goals this year for rest and relaxation. Creating a spa-like experience at home.

5. Home gym.

As more people are working out at home, the trend has shifted to home gyms. New walls to carve out dedicated space, exercise equipment and flooring are just some of the home improvement trends expected to continue in 2021.
