Bringing Work Home… Permanently

The home office/workspace trend continues into 2021 with new definitions of what it means to work from home. With virtual learning, Zoom calls, and multiple family members needing privacy all at the same time, a simple home office just doesn’t cut it. Multi-functional spaces like a play room/study area or a dining room/home office/den are popping up throughout the US.

ProSource Wholesale highlights video conferencing and working from home as a home remodeling trend in 2021
Video-conferencing friendly spaces mean a professional background and quiet foreground perfect for chatting with the team over lunch. Sliding doors instead of walls allow for families to transition quickly from an open floor plan to an enclosed workspace. It is likely this trend will continue as more and more of us transition to fully remote.

Multi-Use Rooms

Multi-functional spaces are a must for 2021. Everyone is spending more time at home, and if we’re being honest, it’s starting to feel a little cramped. Taking space already available and repurposing into a media room/library, or den/home office/conference room is a smart way to transition from one need to another – all without having to leave the room. Kitchens that double as dining rooms, lofts that have space for a desk or craft area, and outdoor spaces with ovens and fire pits allow for multiple functions within one space.

Kitchen Zones

It’s no surprise that most homeowners spend the majority of time in the kitchen. After all,  there’s food in there. When it comes to kitchen design, we’re seeing trends shift to sleek, smooth cabinets and hidden hardware. Modern cabinets with sleek, high-gloss finishes are being chosen over satin and shaker. Hidden hardware means not having to stress over the perfect cabinet pull. Not for you? No problem. Farmhouse and coastal design is still trending as well, and matte black fixtures and pulls are the top choice there.

Also expected to be popular in 2021, the multi-zoned kitchen. Essentially, families are designing kitchens with function in mind. Taking into account the normal flow of kitchen activities, kitchens are being designed to accommodate a “functional triangle” with dedicated space for ingredient prep, assembly and cooking/baking.

Suggested Products*: Silestone Platinum Series (color: Chrome) | Decora Harmony Inset cabinets (color: Confection)

A Bathroom As A Retreat

Everyone needs a break every once in a while, like maybe a steamy relaxing shower or a good soak in a beautiful modern claw foot tub. The bathroom is no longer about utility – it is a space to rejuvenate and relax, a space to wind down after a long day of at-home learning and conference calls. 2021 means creating a spa-like experience that’s always just a few steps away. Design with tranquility in mind!

Have a smaller space? Updating the tile, incorporating a floating vanity, or utilizing clever, sleek shelving and bringing in potted plants can accomplish the same feeling. Larger bathrooms can accommodate design choices like tile rugs, a custom vanity, or soaking tub. Also popular this year – oversized rectangular wall tile, marble and marble-look tile, steam showers, and stand-alone tubs.

Suggested Products*: James Martin Mercer Island vanity (color: Ash Gray) | Daltile Color Wave Straight Joint Mosaic tile (color: Oak Moss Glass)

ProSource Wholesale highlights flooring options as a home remodeling trend in 2021


Keeping the home up-to-date starts with flooring. With a myriad of choices, keeping track of what’s hot and what’s not is made easier with ProSource®. Our account managers and showroom staff are always aware of the newest trends with flooring and can help guide you in the right direction.

So, what’s hot in 2021? Hard surfaces are trending. Wood look laminate and vinyl top the list, with engineered hardwood coming in as a close third. The waterproof protection and scratch resistance of select luxury vinyl makes it an attractive choice – the same goes for some laminate styles. With today’s flooring technology, these options can look just as good as real hardwood. We’re also seeing lighter colors come to the forefront, like grays, blondes and whites. Aside from that, patterned tile, oversized tile, and wood and marble-look tile are all expected to be huge in 2021. Look to create patterns like herringbone and chevron, and chose wide plank options to stay as on-trend as possible.

Suggested Products*: Baroque Monterey hardwood (color: Seaside) | RevWood Carrolton laminate (color: Aged Bark Oak)

Whole House Trends

A trend expected to permeate every room in the house in 2021 is warm, inviting colors. Cool gray tones are being replaced by warm greige and beige options. Yellow and golden rod are popular choices, as are almond, pecan, and cinnamon tones.

ProSource Wholesale highlights custom touches as a home remodeling trend in 2021
Custom touches are gaining steam this year, likely from staring at the same boring walls day in and day out. Taking inspiration from within, homeowners are adding splashes of personality into each room. From a fun backsplash or tile boarder around the shower, to a funky vanity or area rug, it’s clear that personalization and fun touches aren’t going anywhere this year.
