Home Remodeling trends for 2021 will be influenced by lifestyle changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stay-at-home, home school, work from home, home entertainment—2020 and the pandemic have placed a new importance on our homes. While we spend more time at home, the need to adapt our space is more apparent than ever. In quite the dysfunctional year, homeowners in Jacksonville and across the country are looking to create functionality. These new home needs have provided homeowners opportunities to reenvision their spaces, which has dramatically affected home remodeling trends. Here are the top five remodeling trends expected in the coming year.

Home Remodeling Trends 2021

  1. Multi-Functional Spaces
    Activities that once took place outside of the home, like work and school, now occur within it. Creating multi-functional spaces will be essential for homeowners who cannot add onto their homes or repurpose a room. As guestrooms double as offices and playrooms transform into virtual learning environments, creative design and organization will help spaces serve multiple purposes.
  2. Outdoor Living Spaces
    After spending more time in their homes over the last year, many homeowners are now craving more livable space, but without a home addition. Outdoor living spaces will become more popular to create more livable space and expand home entertainment options. Gardens, decks, patios, and pools will help homeowners connect with nature while at home.
  3. Home Offices
    The COVID-19 pandemic has created a shift in where we work. As employees continue to work from home versus the office, creating permanent home offices will continue to top home remodeling trends. These spaces will focus on providing a designated, well-lit private area with room to work comfortably.
  4. Larger Kitchens
    With the entire family being home most of the day, it seems the kitchen never closes. Now, more than ever, the kitchen has become a multi-functioning space for dining, entertaining, schooling, working, and more. Kitchens will continue to be popular home remodeling projects in the year ahead, focusing on creating a larger, more functional space.
  5. Closed Floor Plans
    In recent years, an open floor plan has been a top home remodeling trend; however, as families spend more time together in the same spaces all day, open floor plans are less attractive. The need for designated areas, boundaries, and privacy within a home is a new trend that will continue to rise in 2021.
