I think we can all agree that we are ready for a new start and are ready to welcome 2021. There is no doubt that we have spent more time in our homes this year more than any other year. What does this lead to? New home trends that we can expect to see in 2021. I have been surprised by some of these predictions, but they all make sense because of the living style that we have experienced this year.

The "Cloffice"

Yes, that is a new, unofficial term that we are starting to talk about. Not everyone has an extra space in their home to create a home office, and this year, we learned that we NEED an office space in our home. So what do you do if you don't have an extra room for an office? Create a cloffice. This is an office space in your closet. Use some peel and stick wallpaper, bright colored paint, anything that creates a motivational work space for you, and now you have a private work space.

Touchless appliances

We are going to see more automatic features in a home. I have been seeing touchless faucets, lights, etc. We have been disinfecting like crazy, so homeowners are deciding to take it a bit further and take the touch out of it all together.

Get Cozy

Grab your throw pillows, blankets, rugs, etc. We want cozy and comfortable spaces. We are desiring that our home feels like an escape because our options for getting out and about are limited, so we are going to see people making their home as comfortable as possible to get in some relaxation on a daily basis.
