Interior Design Remodeling Trends for 2021

This last year has had many of us spending more time at home and has piqued our interest in remodeling our homes. Since more of our time is being spent in our kitchen, living room, bathrooms and bedrooms it’s worth it to invest in our dream home.  We have the top trends of 2021 to inspire you.

The Pantone core classic colors for spring and summer 2021 are earth tones with compliments of metal pieces like hammered metal sinks and pendant lights. We’re slowing down and taking the time to really appreciate nature and the environment around us.

 

Larger kitchen and dining spaces are trending in 2021. Families are spending more time at home for breakfast, lunch and dinner so more remodels include a kitchen island with dining space attached. Quartz is a popular trend in countertops and is a form of engineered stone, made from ground-up particles of stone bound together with plastic resins. It’s one of the hardest minerals on earth making it extremely durable and typically a more affordable option.

 

Indoor-outdoor living is a trend that is gaining popularity because of the many benefits. Creating a space to bring nature and the outdoors to your home without leaving is key to most homeowners. These areas add space, function, value, and beauty to your home. The options are limitless and it will bring you together as a family.

 

Working from home has become essential for many people so there is no better time to create a work-from-home space. Having a designated workspace in your home will help you separate the time for work and home life and help you to be focused, efficient, and more productive. Home office remodels are flexible and can be done with a lower budget. By taking advantage of these trending design ideas you will be making your life easier and investing in a home you love and want to live in.

Celebrate Black History Month

Black History Month is an opportunity to share the stories of Black Americans who have helped shape the world and have also made an impact in the construction industry. Black Americans have contributed to the foundation of how we work, live, and play but sometimes their stories go unnoticed. We would like to share a few stories about these impactful individuals.

Paul Revere Williams was licensed as an architect in California and in 1923 he became the first Black member of the American Institute of Architects. He became known as “Hollywood’s architect”, designing homes for Carey Grant, Lucille Ball, and Frank Sinatra. He also designed civic and commercial buildings throughout the city including the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Williams was awarded the AIG Gold Medal in 2017, making him the first Black American to receive the award.

Alexander Miles was an inventor and a businessman. He is best known for dramatically improving passenger safety with his patented innovation of a mechanism to automatically open and close elevator doors in 1887.

Alice Parker graduated from Howard University with honors. She is known for inventing a furnace powered by gas. Her goal was to offer a central heating system that was more efficient than wood or coal. It allowed people to customize temperatures in different rooms using a heat exchanger and a series of burners and ducts.
