The coronavirus has not only changed the way we work and live, it has even affected our relationship with our living space as well.
This year, homeowners are looking for ways to maximize the usefulness of each room while simultaneously making design choices that prioritize comfort and spark joy in their home. Utility will be increasingly important in today’s renovation decisions, but not at the cost of beauty and design.
If you’re planning on renovating your home in the upcoming months, you’re in luck. Here are four home remodeling trends Charlotte, NC homeowners like you will want to keep an eye on this year.
1. More natural light
Thanks to all of the time that people are now spending in their homes, they want their space to be one they can enjoy and be comfortable in.
Natural light increases the sense of peace and airiness of a room, especially in living rooms and bedrooms. As a result, we’re seeing bigger windows, more skylights, or at the very least, updated window treatments that let more sunlight in.
As an added bonus, if you were one of the many people who started a houseplant collection during quarantine, this trend will be one your leafy friends will enjoy too.
2. Earthy and creamy tones
Because of this aforementioned desire for comfortable, snug living spaces, homeowners are also gravitating towards colors that evoke that same feeling.
Nature-inspired colors like warm brown, wine red, and sage green have become much more popular in home renovation requests, while warm and creamy tones are also enjoying their time in the spotlight right now. Opt for paint and fabric colors with red or yellow undertones to invite a cozier feeling in your space.
3. Multi-use spaces
Gone are the days of single-use rooms. Nowadays, rooms must become workspaces, classrooms, doctor’s offices, meditation rooms, day spas, and more — all in addition to the activities they were already used for pre-quarantine.
Expect to see more creative design elements and clever furniture hacks to help people seamlessly transition from work to play and everything in between.
4. Elevated home offices
Meanwhile, those lucky to have enough space for a dedicated home office are incorporating their personal style into the space.
As people quickly transitioned to a work-from-home model, many of us created a makeshift workspace with the items and furniture we already had. Now that it looks like we’ll be here for the long haul, many homeowners are choosing to curate the pieces in their home office so it looks like a natural, intentional part of the rest of their home — rather than one put together out of necessity.
