Design Trends for 2021 Fixer-Upper Homes

Fixer upper homes are the perfect pathway to the home of your dreams. Your forever home is really just a remodel away!

Once the home buying process begins, we offer the total home renovation solution from start to finish. Don’t get discouraged by the ugly duckling. Once we’re done with your fixer upper, you will see that you didn’t have to settle on any aspect of the home buying experience – you get a brand new house in the location you want, designed to your exact personal taste, all within the budget you set.

With that in mind, we will look at some home design trends for 2021 that you can incorporate into your fixer upper home.

Multi-Functional Spaces

The need for multi-functional spaces has risen in popularity due to stay in place orders at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, which many people are still following almost a year later. With work and school now taking place at home for many people, families needed to reconfigure their spaces to accommodate. With new homes, we expect to see homeowners putting more of an emphasis on spaces with multiple uses.

Home Offices

Working from home has become the new normal for much of the workforce, resulting in a need for comfortable home offices. In 2021, more home buyers who invest in fixer upper homes will be asking to incorporate home office spaces into their new homes.

Outdoor Living

Outdoor living has become more important as we leave the house less, in addition to skipping vacations for the time being to stay safe and healthy. A home trend for 2021 will be more outdoor living components such as patios, outdoor kitchens and landscape design for staycations right in your own backyard.


We’re still seeing a shift to natural and sustainable materials in new homes, so this is a trend we will likely see as we get further into 2021. Homeowners care more about doing their part to help the environment, prioritizing healthy living when it comes to home design. Another trend that falls in line with natural and sustainable building materials is touchless components in the kitchen to contain the spread of germs.
