From a new coat of paint to a complete overhaul, you may have plans for your home in the new year. And like any homeowner, you’re trying to make it as comfortable as possible, because who knows what will happen in 2021, right? With so much uncertainty this year, it’s understandable that many homeowners want to make their homes work for them now more than ever. Whether it’s an ultimate relaxation destination or a productive office space, having what you need in your home is imperative, especially if you’re spending more time there working and staying safe. For those searching for ways to optimize their homes, let us help with some home projects that are trending in the upcoming year.

Here are some of the top home projects for 2021…

Custom Organization

Spending more time in your home means having it work how you need it, no matter which room you’re in at any given moment. That’s why more and more designers and builders are integrating innovative storage areas into the home to help keep everything conveniently in its place. Top organization areas in the home include:

  • Kitchen pantries

  • Bedroom closets

  • Media centers

  • Garage and laundry areas

  • Office spaces

Built-in storage is recommended for these spaces to avoid losing items and save time when you’re in a rush. After all, the last thing you want is to have lost your favorite pair of shoes in the abyss that is your closet or not be able to find an ingredient you need in the pantry for tonight’s dinner. With custom organization features in your home, you’re able to stay on top of your day.

Energy Efficiency

As we strive more and more to help save our planet, it’s no surprise that homeowners are ditching traditional appliances and opting for energy efficient varieties. Not only are these types of appliances more eco-friendly, they help to lower energy bills, which saves you money. From energy efficient washers and dryers to ovens, refrigerators, microwaves, HVAC systems and more, you’re able to make your home run smoothly, while doing your part to protect our planet.

Wallpaper Accents

Have we told you that wallpaper is back in style? A new trend for 2021 is accentuating areas of the home, such as laundry and bathrooms with wallpaper. It’s time to add some excitement to these often mundane areas of the home with trendy prints, pops of color and interesting designs. Say good-bye to unsightly floral prints and hello to sophisticated marble designs, geometric patterns and more to help liven up certain areas of the home.

Outdoor Living Upgrades

It’s true…Southwest Florida homeowners spend a lot of time outdoors, enjoying our exquisite tropical backdrop and tranquil ocean breezes. That’s why if your outdoor living area could use some love, there’s no better time than now to give it the revitalization it needs. From new pavers to an upgraded pool, adding in an outdoor kitchen to enhancing the seating arrangements, tackling your outdoor living space now means being able to enjoy it to the fullest later.
