Trendy vs. Timeless Design

When building your home, it can be challenging to find the right balance between a trendy and timeless style. Having spent far more time at home this past year, we have already seen many trends come and go as homeowners began to notice details of their house that needed revamping. No matter what type of environment you’re going for, Sitterle can help you choose a style that will stand the test of time.

It is important to recognize that trends are constantly evolving. What really matters is that your home never goes out of style in your mind. Consider timeless designs in areas that could be difficult to change and use trendy pieces for accents and finishing touches. If in two years you decide you don’t like your colorful rug or side chair, these can be relatively easy to switch out. Other items like home exteriors and expensive furniture should stay more neutral to accommodate newer trends easily.

Design Trends in 2021:

Earthy Palettes

It has been a common trend in recent months to accent the home with calming patterns. Where it was previously in style to have white or minimalistic kitchens and common areas, we are seeing more earthy tones like greens, browns, and even yellow bringing in influence from nature. A timeless kitchen could include granite or quartz countertops with soft colors that would mix well with colorful accent pieces.

Multifunctional Spaces

Spending more time at home has made us reconsider the purpose of a room. In extra space, we expect people to be inspired to maximize functionality. Trends here include dual-purpose furniture and smart storage. With the creative help of Sitterle’s design specialist, you will see that no space is too small to serve a bigger purpose.

Texture

Texture is what makes a home feel like it’s lived in. Layers of texture are easy to incorporate into any room and add personality without being too overwhelming. Texture can add dimension through furniture, walls, and more and can include materials like stone, marble, wood, or even velvet. Texturize a space easily with plants, patterned cushions and woven baskets. Architectural touches like crown molding and ceilings with wood planks are small touches that can make all the difference too.

Less Open Floor Plans

It is possible that the pandemic has weakened some enthusiasm for open floor plans. We will likely never completely say goodbye to the concept, but after the pandemic, homeowners discovered a new need for privacy and “zoom-friendly” spaces. Working with Sitterle Homes, you will see creative solutions to find a balance between entertaining and quiet space.
