After a long year of being cooped up at home, it’s only fair to start the new year with some changes. During the lockdown, many people have remodeled their houses and added a home office or a homeschooling space in a rush, leaving their houses with unfinished interiors. But, it’s time to change that.
Whether you’re moving into a new house, want to finish the renovations you’ve started in 2020, or looking for new remodeling ideas to start the year with, you should check out the latest décor trends. Here are the 6 most creative home remodeling trends for 2021.
1. Large Windows
It does not matter if you want to spend more time at home or outside, letting some natural light into your home is vital. Large windows, such as wall-size windows, will allow sunlight into your house, provide warmth during the day, and will give you the feeling that the room is bigger. It will also give your house a modern style. When choosing the window, you should pay attention to the material. You want a high-quality glass to ensure that it will keep the room warm even in winter. High-quality large windows will give you the trendy style you desire while saving money on your electricity bills.
2. Metal Accents in the Kitchen
Stainless steel kitchens were once popular, but over time, steel was replaced with other materials. Luckily, this trend has returned but with a little twist. Mixing different metals with different types of wood will provide your kitchen with a modern look. You can use brass, copper, or stainless steel for the countertops and natural wood for the cabinets. The metal countertops will match your appliances while the wood will provide a warm touch. You can also use metal for your backsplash and faucet to complete the design. Don’t forget to add a water softener system while installing the faucet if you are incorporating different metals. Choosing the best water softener system is an essential step in any kitchen renovation. The system can also be installed in a hidden cabinet so it doesn’t ruin your design. In case you forgot to create a space for the system while remodeling, you can choose a small water softener system and install it under the sink.
3. Light colors
Choosing light colors for your walls is not only a smart move but also the trend of the year. Dark colors give a unique look to your house but they can limit you to certain designs and furniture. With light colors, you are able to go with multiple styles or décor. Colors like beige or light blue will allow you to go with any design you want. The colors will also match most frames or decorations you want to add.
4. Extra Rooms
If you’re using your garage, basement, or attic as storage space, it’s time to change that. Many people now prefer working from home but they don’t have a place to do it. If your one of those people, you can now create your own workspace without building an extra room by transferring to the basement. 2021 is all about creative ideas, so you can create a home theater in your basement if you don’t need a workspace, or you can make it into a cozy place to read or spend time with your family.
5. Painted Staircases
Renovating the staircase can be expensive for many people, but painting them will cost way less. You can paint your staircase with warm colors to make it look like it has a carpet, or you can paint it with different bright colors to give it a cheerful vibe.
You can paint the staircase with any colors you want even if they don’t match your home style. This will make the staircase a unique part of the house that has its own funky design.
6. Graphic Tiles
Colorful graphic tiles are the latest trends in bathrooms. They create fun and one-of-a-kind looks. With colorful tiles, you will not need to think of a theme or color, and you can go with white for the rest of the bathroom and the tiles will give a unique and trendy style.
Spending a lot of time at home forces you to notice all the little details you missed before. 2021 is coming with a lot of creative ideas that you can easily implement at home. Most of these trends can be implemented without even hiring a contractor. You can paint the walls or staircase and renovate the basement yourself. However, when it comes to the kitchen and windows, it’s better to enlist the services of a professional to ensure that you get the outcome you desire.
