Top 2021 Home Remodeling Trends in Minneapolis

At Che Bella Interiors, we’re proud to help Minnesota residents create spaces they love to suit their lifestyles and needs.

To give you a few ideas and some inspiration for your own design build project, we’ve compiled this list of the top home remodeling trends in Minneapolis for 2021.


1. More Room for Home Offices

It probably sounds like a no-brainer that more people are making room for a place to work inside their homes. Quite a few individuals like the idea of making remote working a permanent choice. And that means a need for a quiet, productive place to get down to business without family and household noise.

Top Ideas: Transforming existing formal dining rooms into enclosed work nooks. Turning guest bedrooms into multi-use spaces with a spacious desk and comfortable seating. Adding small workspaces to an unused kitchen or living room corner.

2. Dreamy Master Bathrooms

Another highly popular trend in home renovation right now is swoon-worthy master bathrooms. We’re talking about dreamy spaces with custom cabinetry, oversized showers, and all the amenities you would want to enjoy at the end of a long day. What’s driving this bathroom remodeling trend? The need for some luxurious relaxation at a time when jetting off to the spa for a facial and a relaxing massage might not be an option. Instead, more people are sticking closer to home to get that same level of pampering in their own space.

Top Ideas: Giant showers with two showerheads. A standalone soaking tub. Concrete tile in beautiful patterns. Custom vanity cabinets with framed mirrors.


3. Bright Pops of Color

Bright pops of color are making a big comeback in terms of wall paint and accessories. Since we’re all spending more time at home these days, many of us are opting to make our living spaces brighter to bring in a happier vibe. In fact, one of the most prominent color pairings right now is sunshine yellow with light gray, which gives off a sense of joy.

Top Ideas: Bold accent walls. Home decor accents in hues like teal and purple. Variations on primary colors such as red, yellow, and blue.

4. Global Travel Themes

With many travel bugs grounded over the past year and a half, it isn’t much of a stretch to realize there’s a rise in bringing travel themes into home decor. Whether it’s Moroccan-style tile, handwoven blankets, or even just photos of places you want to travel to, bringing a touch of global influence into your everyday space is a good way to fend off the itch to travel abroad.

Top Ideas: Artwork featuring famous locations around the globe. Bright colors reminiscent of the coast. Handmade furniture from faraway lands.


5. Open Concept Spaces

When it comes to home remodeling in Minneapolis, there is one dominant theme: open concept spaces. That’s right, walls are coming down to create spaces that are less closed in and a lot more functional. While we don’t recommend just knocking down a wall for random reasons, this is certainly something that you can work with our team to achieve.

Top Ideas: Kitchens that open to living space the whole family can enjoy. Eliminating formal dining room walls to create a floor plan with a more open and inviting space.


6. Extra Storage

Another big trend in home remodeling right now is extra storage. This is especially true when it comes to kitchen remodeling. The pandemic inspired many people to rekindle (or ignite!) a love of cooking, meaning home chefs are looking for more space to house cooking gadgets and pantries for ingredients. In addition, transforming attic spaces into functional places to keep excess home goods is also a popular request. Simply put, if you can store something in it, most homeowners want it added to their renovation project.

Top Ideas: Cabinets that reach the ceiling. Pretty and functional pantries. Built-in entertainment units. Master bedroom closet renovations with custom cabinetry.

7. Outdoor Living Spaces

It’s summer in Minnesota and we are all soaking up time spent outdoors! Outdoor living spaces including outdoor fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens, and other elements are highly trendy in 2021. Our team is also seeing a lot of add-on rooms that are airy in the summer but closed off and heated in the winter. This is a great addition if you have a large backyard but feel your floor plan is a bit cramped for your family’s needs.

Top Ideas: Outdoor kitchens with all the top amenities. Seating areas with room for dining tables and fireplaces. Pizza ovens and specialty grills.


8. Luxury Vinyl Flooring

All that time spent at home is making a lot of families realize that they need to ditch that worn-out carpeting, quick. What are they replacing it with? Luxury vinyl flooring. The good news is that there are tons of different options available. Whether you’re in the market for vinyl that looks like wood plank or want to mimic hand-painted porcelain, there’s a durable and waterproof style out there to meet your needs and budget.

Top Ideas: Vintage floral print luxury vinyl tile. Wood plank-style luxury vinyl tile.


9. Multi-Generational Living

Finally, we’re seeing a lot more remodels that involve multi-generational living and aging-in-place concepts. What this means is creating a space that is safe and functional for seniors to live with other family members. With more people deciding to leave the retirement communities to spend time closer to those they love, we don’t anticipate this trend in home renovation slowing down anytime soon.

Top Ideas: Mother in-law suites. Showers with low-profile flooring to reduce steps. Tiny guesthouses in the backyard.
