The pandemic hitting the globe in 2020 and the resultant lockdowns and rigid rules of social distancing caused people worldwide to spend most of their time at home. Resultantly, we saw an enormous spike in home renovation trends with the underlying objective of turning the home into a more liveable, multi-functional, cozier, and better living space.
We assume that you have joined the club of DIY home renovators. And maybe you are also looking for the professional expertise of painters and home painting and home renovation services. Whatever the case is, ensure that you stay ahead of the top four home renovation trends in 2021 and beyond. Read on to learn more!
Let us ask you a question, what are the two spots inside your house where you and your family spend the most time together? Understandably, the answers will be your kitchen and, of course, your living area. Since the beginning of the pandemic, people have shown a serious interest in cooking, baking, and coming up with healthy meals.
With numerous recipes to try out, we cannot help ourselves but remain in the kitchen most of the time. With social distancing, we are certainly not eating out anymore, which means more people are helping in the kitchen. More room is needed for everyone to be part of the cooking game. Hence, pay attention to the kitchen space by turning it into a multi-zone. The inclusion of a kitchen pantry will allow you to stock and store food properly and save loads of space in the kitchen.
Home Spas & Zen Vibes
What do you do when you cannot visit the salons anymore and are desperately looking for a Zen moment? The simple answer to this very important question is hidden inside your bathroom. As we pass through 2021, we need more of the Zen moments than ever before.
Suppose your budget doesn’t allow you to replace your bathtub with something more Spa-like, such as a free-standing soak tub. In that case, you can remodel it by adding plants and strategically placing candles (for aromatherapy) around the bathroom. And don’t forget to add a soft velvety mat to your bathtub. Turn on relaxing music, add your favorite bath salt/ essential oils, grab one glass of wine, kick back, and relax while enjoying your home spa.
In 2020, with the initial lockdowns, people couldn’t help but be skeptical about remote working. We had to adapt to numerous changes overnight, and remote working was one of them. Now, as we are passing through 2021, we have kind of accepted the facts, which include that remote working is here to stay in 2021 and beyond. Therefore, it has become more important than before to dedicate a fixed place/ spot for your home office.
If your living space is small and you don’t have a spare room or closet, you can use your living room as a multi-functional space. You can also use your basement to set up your office. You have to ensure that your office nook is in a quiet place so that your focus remains intact and your productivity doesn’t decrease.
Windows – Letting in More Light
The pandemic has taught us about the uncertainty of life and the bliss of nature and outdoor spaces, which is why it is a great idea to reinstall windows and doors and make them an essential part of your DIY home renovation projects.
If your budget doesn’t allow you to replace your old doors and windows, you can opt for painting the doors, which will have a drastic impact on your home. You can change the blinds and curtains on the windows while letting in more natural sunlight brighten up your day and home.
