2021 Interior Design Trends

With many of us spending more time at home because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the thought of remodeling has peaked much interest. Since more time is being spent in your kitchen, bathroom, living room and even bedroom, it may be worth it to finally invest in transforming your most intimate space. While you are gathering inspiration, the last thing you want is an outdated design. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with these top interior design and remodeling trends for 2021, straight from the experts!


1. Natural Tones and Metal Materials Trending in Interior Design

Trending in design for 2021, is natural earthy tones along with metal pieces. With more time in the home, we have become more in-tune with pausing to appreciate nature. We’re not moving at 100 miles per hour as before and we finally have time to take a step back and really take in and appreciate the environment around us.


With that, according to Pantone’s Fashion Color Trend Report, we are going to see a trend in warmer colors making its way into our palettes in Spring and Summer of 2021. This goes for fashion week, interior design, and more. Core classic colors that make the cut include Desert Mist – a powdery sands feel, Willow – a canopy of green that reveals and conceals and Buttercream – an easy and effortless off-white.

More playful earthy tones include Marigold – a comforting golden orange infused yellow, Cerulean – a color of the sky, Rust – an Earth inspired brown emblematic of Autumn, Green Ash – one that cools and soothes, Burnt Coral – expressing warmth and Amethyst Orchid – the floral orchid.




Metallic interiors are expected to trend in 2021 as metal materials compliment natural tones. Examples, Sea Pointe Design & Remodel has worked on include these gorgeous kitchen remodels designed and remodeled by Sea Pointe Design & Remodel. From earth-toned trimming on the black hood to a kitchen island with metal touches with appliances and pendant lights, these kitchens showcase top remodeling trends in 2021. Homeowners are gravitating towards a natural airy feel, making their spaces feel larger while keeping it simple and timeless.


Another kitchen remodel we love that incorporates metal is this sleek design by Sea Pointe Design & Remodel. This kitchen remodel includes a hammered metal sink built into the kitchen island. The metal pairs perfectly with the matching stainless steel appliances found throughout the rest of the kitchen. We also see white and dark blue-toned cabinets that make this a design that will continue to blossom in 2021 and beyond.

2. Simple and Functional Kitchen Island Features


In 2021, we will see simple and functional design in remodeling continue to thrive. With more time spent at home and especially in the kitchen with less eating out, a few examples of functionality include Kitchen island storage, integrated dishwasher, pull-out garbage and recycling cabinet or spice rack as well as more pantry shelves for food storage.


3. Indoor Outdoor Living Spaces



Trending in 2021 are also more remodels that include outdoor living. It’s nice to be able to walk outside your home and still be able to gather with family or just work remotely in your backyard in our very agreeable southern California weather. Creating a space to bring nature and the outdoors to your home without leaving is key. This California Room with herringbone pattern flooring and a bright white shiplap feature wall, elevate the design of this outdoor space. We will see more outdoor living and entertaining spaces as well as more fully functional California Rooms in 2021.


Here is another calming example of a California Room designed by Sea Pointe Design & Remodel in Coto de Caza.  This California room features everything one could want in a smaller California Room.  The kitchen area boasts a barbecue and refrigerator with the kegerator across the way where the living space is.  Weather proof cabinetry has been installed to stand the test of time with Bedrosians Quartz stone countertops.  This California Room is set to host every event you’d want to host.


Another example that includes a casual gathering area for close family members to get together is this beautiful California Room Sea Pointe designed and built in Villa Park, California. We have come to really appreciate nature more and this also allows for a more relaxation, alleviating some anxiety and instead bringing a more calming vibe.

4. Larger Kitchens and Dining Space



Larger kitchens that incorporate more dining space are set to trend in 2021 and on. During the Covid-19 pandemic, more families are spending time at home for breakfast, lunch, and dinner so we are seeing more remodels that include a kitchen island that has dining space attached. Above, are great examples Sea Pointe has done in Corona del Mar and San Clemente. Both of these kitchens show off design with dining space included, for the perfect spot to entertain family or guests while meal prepping. Leading into kitchen countertop materials, quartz has become very popular over the years because of its easy-clean surface and ability to mimic designs like natural stone and granite.


According to National Kitchen and Bath Association, 78% of those surveyed say Quartz will be the most popular countertop for at least the next three years. For those not so well versed in stone, quartz is the manufactured version of the natural stone quartzite. This means it is typically more affordable, but not always, pending colors and brand selected. This is also a trend for 2021 that we will continue to see in home remodeling.

5. Work from Home Office


Working from home has become essential and there is no better time to create a work from home space than in 2021! We will see this continue to trend as more and more people are working from home. Whether you do a kitchen remodel with an office space or a room addition for an office, we expect this to be wildly popular. Here is a great example we have completed in Corona Del Mar.
