How to use our home renovation trends list?
But, before we get into what we predict to be the most sought-after home renovation trends for 2021, let’s lay a little groundwork. We want you to use our list as inspiration.

Our professionals can help guide your project. We’re a friendly bunch, so give us a shout at 204.509.7574 or drop us a message on our contact us page.

Is 2021 the right time to renovate my home?
You might also be wondering if 2021 is the right time to renovate your home… especially with all that’s going on in the world. While our opinion is bias, we feel there is almost no better opportunity. With all the time spent at home, you need your home to be an oasis – a space that works for your family. On top of that, materials, technology, and techniques have advanced rapidly. It’s time to take advantage of what’s available to better your quality of life. And finally, if you don’t necessarily have any savings available, but you own equity in your home – talk to your bank about refinancing options. Not only could this free up some cash to complete the renovation of your dreams, but interest rates are also at an all-time low. This makes it the perfect opportunity to recommit to your mortgage at a lower rate. Of course, we suggest you work with a qualified mortgage broker to make this happen… but call us when you’re ready to renovate your home!

Kitchen renovation trends for 2021
This year, kitchen renovations are all about simplicity, environmental friendliness, and creating a usable, functional kitchen for the whole family. Here are the top kitchen renovation trends we’re likely to see in 2021.
Quartz is durable, has a great ROI, and is easy to care for with a durable and upscale look.
Dark counters with light cupboards (or high-contrast)
Stone and wood-finish counters in dark colours paired with lighter cupboards are sure to dominate 2021.
Goodbye, open shelving
Wall-to-wall, closed cupboards and storage are coming back in a big way – no more open shelves! Still want that open look? We recommend glass inserts into select cabinet doors
Expect little-to-no cupboard hardware with clean lines, and modern features like touch-open cabinets.
Multi-level islands feature prep space, storage, and seating, making them convenient for today’s kitchen.
Energy-efficient & environmental friendliness
“Green” appliances, energy-efficient windows, and materials like reclaimed wood are sure to surge in popularity in 2021.
Forget tiled backsplashes! Slab backsplashes are modern, simple, and add elegance to any kitchen.
Bathroom renovation trends for 2021
Our predictions for bathroom renovation trends in 2021 involve warm, natural textures, unique styles, and eco-friendly touches.
Matte & satin finish textures
Drop the Rose and stick with the Gold. Matte and satin finish bathroom fixtures are here to stay.
“Modern Organic” design
Combinations of wood and glass, marble and other stone, and other naturalistic, organic elements can create an elegant, comfortable bathroom.
Unique tile patterns & sizes
Mixed tile sizes and unique tile patterns add visual interest to any bathroom.
Basin & faucet-style sinks
This style of sink is elegant yet convenient and functional, making it a top pick for bathroom renovations in 2021.
Warming luxury touches
Heated towel warmers and underfloor heating add understated luxury to any bathroom.
Large windows and skylights or solar tubes can be used to add even more natural light to any bathroom.
Basement renovation trends for 2021
We expect more people than ever will finish their basements this year to get more room out of their homes, and these basement renovation trends for 2021 reflect this.
A basement is a great place for a home theater or media center, and this can vary from a basic home theater to a full project room with movie-style seating.
Guest & in-law suites
Guest suites with bathrooms and kitchenettes are becoming more popular than traditional guest rooms due to their added versatility and convenience.
COVID-19 has driven lots of people to work out at home, and to build dedicated home gym spaces in basements and other utility areas. This trend is likely to continue throughout 2021.
Wet & dry bars
A wet or dry bar is a great place to entertain guests and relax, and makes your home unique, and a wet or dry bar can be put into almost any basement.
