Design Trends for Homeowners

  • Appliances Installed in Kitchen Islands: We ask a lot of our kitchens, and as such, we need to make use of all the available space. A trend that has recently risen in popularity is having appliances built into kitchen islands—be it a range, an oven, a sink, or even a wine fridge. Having an appliance built into this unit frees up more space around the room’s perimeter for countertop food prep or cabinet storage. This can also significantly help with the flow of your kitchen workspace.
  • Architectural Curves: Arches that are incorporated into the structure of your home in doorways, thresholds, windows, and more immediately give the space an elegant yet cozy appearance. They can make a walkway more whimsical; an arched window can make a reading nook look like a scene in a fairy tale. If you want to incorporate arches into your home’s architecture, use them throughout so that the design is cohesive—throwing one or two random curving walkways into a home otherwise filled with 90-degree angles can look odd.
  • Metal Roofing: Metal roofs are more durable and long-lasting than other traditional materials. They also reflect heat, making them much more energy-efficient than dark shingles. Many homeowners recently are choosing to switch to metal when it comes time to replace their roofs.
  • Wallpaper: That’s right, wallpaper is making a comeback. But as opposed to the outdated floral patterns you might still find in grandma’s house, the wallpaper that homeowners are using these days is much more stylish. Peel-and-stick wallpaper allows you to transform a room quickly or add an accent wall without making a mess and can easily be removed if you change your mind. You can get really creative with it as well—some people use it to turn their boring white or black refrigerator into a colorful statement piece or to change up the appearance of their backsplash quickly.
  • Colorful Kitchens: Don’t get us wrong—white or neutral-colored kitchens are still trendy and will likely always stay that way. However, we are also seeing a trend of incorporating more color into the kitchen. As previously mentioned, some people opt to use wallpaper to create an accent wall or cover the fridge; others opt to buy colorful small appliances to incorporate a bright color palette. Painting the cabinets something other than the standard white or brown can significantly impact the room’s look as well.
  •  Home Offices: Since the beginning of the pandemic, many people have realized that having a designated home office can be a great asset. Whether you work from home full-time or just need a private workspace, you may want to consider having an extra room in your floor plan for an office.
  • Improved Outdoor Living Spaces: Now that pandemic restrictions have loosened significantly, people are looking for ways to enhance their entertainment capabilities. Many are choosing to create seamless transitions between their indoor and outdoor living spaces so that they can easily entertain large numbers of guests. Allow your spaces to flow into each other—build large doors out to a deck or patio, add an outdoor kitchen or TV, and install a ceiling fan on your covered porch.Design trends come and go, but classic kitchens and bathrooms never go out of style.
