Many of us have never felt more desperate for a fresh start and a new beginning. Luckily, spring is here. Since we’re all spending lots of time in our homes lately, what better way to invoke the fresh feeling of spring than to bring it into our home.
Especially during the pandemic, the kitchen has solidified itself as the heart of the home and has emerged as an important multitasking room, as well. To bring springtime freshness to the kitchen, consider minimalist styles with touches of organic and natural materials. Embrace pops of green or opt for the classic all-white kitchen. Alternatively, try incorporating some wooden elements to add some natural character.
The Home Office
Working from the kitchen table was kind of cute when you thought you would be doing it for only a few weeks. But now? Not so much. That’s why this Spring 2021 (and beyond), home offices will be more critical than ever. Make sure this is a space that is calming and comfortable. Incorporate sleek technological elements to keep the look minimalistic.
Tastemakers love large, freestanding showers with zero-clearance entry, linear drains, hands-free faucets, and black or nickel finishes in matte or brushed textures. Other top trends include radiant heated flooring, bidets, self-closing lids, and leak detection hardware. Keep the bathroom looking fresh and airy by using neutral colors and earth tones.
Clearly Delineated Spaces
Likely because we’re spending so much time at home, you may find yourself increasingly interested in closing off those wide-open spaces that were once so coveted. Delineated spaces allow for a variety of different sensory experiences to be contained under one roof. And defined areas means personal space to relax and recharge.
What better way to bring springtime to your home than to bring the indoors outside? Extend your living space outdoors by constructing an outdoor oasis perfect for entertaining, dining, or grabbing some solo time to connect with nature. Opt for a patio, deck, or an outdoor kitchen to make the most of your outdoor space and extend the utility and comfort of your home.
