Up-and-coming design trends are still centered around increased wellness and functionality post-pandemic, but buyers and homeowners are also making bolder aesthetic choices in their purchases and remodels, reports Realtor.com. Brightly colored front doors are popping up in Houzz website searches, while calming “Japandi” style kitchens are becoming more popular for their clutter-free organization and natural accents.

Searches for “barndominium” barn conversions are up 154% thanks to the design influence of HGTV faves like Chip and Joanna Gaines, proving that the rustic-chic style is still very much alive in the residential world.
