Home Design Trends For Spring 2021

There’s no better time than the beginning of a new season to freshen up your home with a mini makeover. As you welcome the first days of spring, think about the areas that you’d like to spruce up a little (or a lot)! From two-tone kitchen cabinets to the Pantone colors of the year, there are so many fun trends to try out in your favorite spaces. Take a look at the top spring 2021 home design trends from Heartland Builders’ very own design consultant, Jen!

Interior Home Design Trends for 2021


Two-Tone Cabinets: When it comes to your kitchen cabinetry, two is better than one! We love the eye-catching look of upper and lower cabinets in two different colors, and the best part is that you have a variety of unique combinations to try. Whether you enjoy soft, light colors like white and powder blue, or a “farmhouse chic” look with black and gold, you’re bound to find the perfect color scheme to reflect your style. With Heartland Builders’ Home Design Center, you can select your cabinets in any color and finish you like. Pair them with your choice of countertops, fixtures, flooring, and hardware for a truly custom home!


Statement Headboards: Nothing says “relaxation” quite like a beautifully designed bedroom. And nothing completes a well-rounded look than a statement headboard for the bed. This year, it’s all about vibrant, lively headboards that become a focal point in the room. From tufted and nailhead styles, to geometric patterns and bright colors, the options are endless. Plus, you can paint an accent wall behind it to complement the look!


House Plants: If you love the calming, natural aura of house plants, situate them throughout your favorite spaces, like your kitchen, bedroom, or living room. This is an easy way to spruce up your home without having to make a big adjustment. Try herbs, peace lilies, English ivy, pothos, Chinese evergreens, and more to brighten up your rooms. You can also add pops of color and personality with unique planters.


Grandmillennial: Yes, you read “grandmillennial” right! This up-and-coming style is all about comfort, and incorporating the “homey” decor pieces you might find in your grandparents’ home into modern spaces. The grandmillennial trend includes things like floral wallpaper, rattan coffee tables, antique paintings, scalloped lampshades, delicate china, crocheted throws, and more. Get creative and see what feels right!


Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (Yellow): Every year, Pantone announces a “color of the year” that embodies a unique message. For 2021, they chose Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating (yellow), two uplifting colors that convey strength and hopefulness. These soft, modern hues work beautifully together (and apart) in any space — try using them as wall colors, in furniture accessories, throughout table displays, and more. These yearly colors provide endless opportunities to give your home the fresh, contemporary vibe you’re looking for this spring. 


At Heartland Builders, design is one of our favorite parts of building a new home. It’s such an important (and fun!) part of the process that we work with our buyers to finalize selections before construction even begins. Through 3D imagery, you’ll know exactly what your beautiful new home will look like, inside and out, before we even break ground.
