Five home repair trends to watch out for in 2021
More use of natural materials and motifs
With the increased awareness in preserving our natural world, it can be a good idea to go green. There is a certain warmth and comfort that many people feel when they are around materials and themes that nature has.
Integration of a richer colour palette
Home repairs in 2021 are expected to include the inclusion of more powerful colours. The old notion of having muted colors may not have completely disappeared, but it could be a backseat as more homeowners opt for richer colours in their environment, such as bright yellow, pale or bold pink, organic green and bold red, among others.
White, neutral and monotonous themes are on the way. The year sees houses with different paint colors.
In 2021, the attic is increasingly seen as a rediscovered treasure of usable space. Almost any facility for the attic is possible, even a bathroom! With proper attic cleaning, renovation and suitable support structures, floors and wiring, anything is possible.
Home cinema room and games room
Dedicated workplaces are increasingly popular, especially for dual career couples or working single parents. The coronavirus pandemic has also put more people in a work-from-home situation, making the home the office for many by 2021.
Even before the pandemic, increased online connectivity has made it possible and feasible for more employees to work from home and contribute to reduced traffic and physical office space and costs. The internet made it possible to have virtual meetings and virtual employees half way around the world.
Having a dedicated workplace at home allows parents to separate work and family life while being accessible to both. This space can be located in an area with the least distraction and noise, and is usually in a separate area where the users can isolate themselves from the children while working.
Spacious modern kitchens
The kitchen should be a place of joy, where cooking is done with love. Extra space can facilitate this and it is now popular for streamlining the overall design and placement of kitchen components. This means removing annoying and unnecessary cabinets; designing the visual look to make the place appear brighter and bigger; and be creative with storage requirements.
