Undeniably, the COVID-19 pandemic redefined the concept of home. It’s no longer a place where you can just sleep, cook, and spend time with family, but also an office and a gym.
The following are the latest home transformation trends for 2021:
1. Ditching Open for Dedicated Space
The pandemic reversed the open space trend for closed-off, dedicated spaces. It’s a logical shift given the need for isolated spaces for online learning, work, workout, etc.
2. Setting up Home Offices
Teleworking stats show that 39% of workers were not in office amidst the pandemic. Hence, finding that quiet corner to work from was a top priority for many in 2020.
In 2021, remote workers took it one step further — they are transforming these places to isolated, distraction-free work sanctuaries.
3. Heading Outdoors
The luckiest among us found the cure to the “cabin fever” in their backyard swimming pools — the most popular backyard improvement for 2021.
Indeed, much of the home remodeling involves the outdoors and a smoother indoor/outdoor transition. So, interiors are opening up with bigger windows, glass doors, and fewer walls, whereas outdoor kitchens and wellness props are filling backyards.
4. Longer Delays
Around 34% of homeowners DIY their lower-scale renovation plans. That said, for bigger undertakings, they’ll need to be patient and look for professional help. Professional renovation work requires social contact so the whole process of it is much slower.
5. Turning to Vibrant Colors
Homeowners are using more daring colors for their rooms to stir up the monotony. By repainting their walls in bolder colors they make the easiest and cheapest visual upgrade to their homes and a major one at that.
