8 Major Home Design Trends That’ll Be Big in 2021, According to Redfin and Hunker


With a new-found love for our homes this past year, it’s likely you’ve racked up a laundry list of ways that you’d love to revamp your space. And what better time to refresh and upgrade your home than the New Year? To help spark some inspiration, we partnered with Hunker to predict which home trends will be big over the next year. So whether you’re looking for kitchen remodel ideas or you’ve set a goal to finally transform that spare room into your dream office, we’ve got you covered. Combining Redfin’s data on the most valuable home trends and Hunker’ design experience, here are the major design trends we expect homeowners to embrace in 2021:

2021 kitchen decor ideas

Home Design Trend 1: Designer kitchens fit for a chef

Since many picked up cooking or baking as a new hobby in 2020, it’s no surprise that the kitchen remains the heart of the home. When it comes to kitchen design trends this year, think functional yet stylish. Spacious, open concept kitchens with top-notch stainless steel appliances will continue as a “must-have” for homeowners, but they’re also seeking a beautiful and stylish design.

Home Design Trend 2: Stylish kitchens with contrast

While an all-white kitchen is a classic, expect to see bolder palettes — like blue hues, forest greens, and deep charcoals — on island cabinetry, as a contrasting backsplash, or with kitchen furniture. We’ll see kitchens continue to incorporate luxe statement lighting and sleek hardware, such as gold faucets and cabinet handles. 

2021 home office decor

Home Design Trend 3: Bonus spaces that can double as a home office

Working from home will continue to be a theme in years to come, and many are looking for opportunities to create dedicated workspaces within their homes. Whether it be an ADU, a sun room, an additional guest room, or transforming a shed into an office space — this is one of the major home design trends that’s here to stay.

Home Design Trend 4: Earthy textures with luxury elements

In 2021, look to see more homes incorporating a lot of the colors you typically see in minimalism. You’ll see colors like white, cream, beige, rust, and sage, but layered in with multiple textures. Think a living room that combines jute, oak, and linen with materials that are undeniably luxe, or a kitchen with colored marble countertops and rich velvet banquette seating.

Home Design Trend 5: Quartz countertops 

In the war of countertop materials, quartz has risen up through the ranks over the years. Versatile, practical, contemporary and elegant, quartz is basically the full package — and we expect to see more of it moving into 2021. Quartz countertops pair well with both light and dark colored cabinets, making them easy to integrate into any kitchen color scheme.

2021 outdoor decor ideas

Home Design Trend 6: Outdoor dining rooms for year-round entertaining 

Now, more than ever before, homeowners want to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor in a way that lets them experience the best of both realities. With people less focused on eating out, they'll be looking to take advantage of outdoor entertaining with spaces that can function as open-air dining rooms — whether that be a deck, a gazebo, or a patio overhang. 

2021 grandmillennial decor idea

Home Design Trend 7: Embracing grandmillennial style 

This style slowly began to take off this year, but “grandmillennial” is being embraced with open arms as we enter 2021. This fun and unique design trend is all about appreciating traditional style from a modern point of view. You can expect to see tasteful antique decor — like a vintage statement mirror — plenty of brass and wicker, and varieties of texture. Whether it’s just a fad or a timeless trend here to stay, it’s going to be “in” throughout this next year.

Home Design Trend 8: Floor-to-ceiling windows

If you’re looking for an open, airy, and refreshing space, then floor-to-ceiling windows are the upgrade your home needs. On-trend with indoor/outdoor living, this home design trend lets light pour into your space without the need to actually step foot outside. Although not the easiest home upgrade to make, it’s one we’ll continue to see throughout homes this year.
