the old, but on building the new.

The above quote is widely attributed to the ancient philosopher Socrates, but

in reality, those are the words of world-class gymnast Dan Millman who wrote

them in 2006. Since then, Millman has become a successful coach, self-help

author, and lecturer.

No matter the source, these words may never ring truer than they do at the

launch of 2021. This is a time to reassess and adjust.

Housetrends, and all of the clients who support us, definitely went through

changes in the past year. While our first impulse was to try to get back to the

way things were, after some consideration we decided this was actually the

right time to look optimistically forward. After a definite lull, builders, remodelers,

and designers got back to their booming businesses as homeowners made

plans to add function and comfort to their nests.

We’ve decided to celebrate the boom in home renovation and this special

Idea Book issue of Housetrends reflects that. In a subtle variation from our

typical content, this publication focuses on how the home and garden industry

is changing….what’s trending, what’s new, what there is to look forward to.

Experts have shared with us what they see happening in kitchens and baths

over the next three years. Color professionals have selected their hot hues for

2021. And builders and kitchen planners are telling us that working pantries

are definitely worth considering.

We’ll be back with a more traditional version of

Housetrends in March, but in the meantime, we

hope you enjoy this special edition.

The National

Kitchen & Bath

Association reveals

top trends to

impact kitchen and

bathroom design

decisions over the

next three years

Recently, The National Kitchen &

Bath Association released their annual

Design Trends study. The report

takes a deep dive into all aspects of

both kitchen and primary bathroom

design, with the goal of highlighting

styles, features, materials and innovations

expected to be most popular

over the next few years. The survey

included over 700 respondents from

across North America. More than

half the participants were designers

and the remainder were architects,

remodelers, showroom professionals

and manufacturers.

Here are some highlights from

their research:

It’s no big surprise that the COVID-

19 pandemic will have a substantial

lasting impact on kitchen and

bath design. As homeowners spend

more time at home, kitchens and

primary bathrooms are getting larger,

the volume of outdoor living projects

is increasing significantly and there

is a need for easy-to-clean surfaces,

flexible living spaces and seamless

technology integration for added convenience

and peace of mind. ➻

housetrends idea book 2021 21


1

Aesthetically, design preferences in both the kitchen and bath will continue

to be more contemporary and transitional in style, with the added influence

of a new leading trend of “natural/organic.” This combination feels more

European in style and scale, with clean lines, minimal detailing, the warmth

and texture of natural finishes, and larger windows to bring the feeling of

the outdoors inside.

Traditional design, which consistently had been one of the top three

kitchen and bath styles for more than a decade, is now anticipated to be

one of the least popular. “We expect designs for both the kitchen and

bath to continue trending toward a more modern, organic feel that is both

streamlined and adaptable,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO.

“The kitchen has long been the heart of the home. But especially during

the pandemic, it has emerged as the most prominent, multitasking room as

well,” Darcy says. “We see this continuing with more open-space concepts,

an extension into multi-season outdoor living spaces, larger kitchen island

hubs and increased functionality and storage to allow homeowners to cook,

eat, work, home-school and play, all in the same vicinity.” ➻

Additional emerging trends for

the kitchen include:

APPLIANCES

Gas and induction cooking methods

are nearly equal in popularity, with

induction expected to replace

traditional glass electric cooktops.

Ventilation hoods will become the

new decorative focal point in the

kitchen.

FAUCETS

Finishes are matte and brushed in

stainless steel or black. Functions

include motion-controlled, handsfree

or touch/tap. ➻

1 The FlexInduction Cooktop by Bosch

allows the placing of cookware anywhere on

its flexible cooking zone. 2 This 66-inch Pro

Island Hood by Wolf makes a statement for

serious cooks. 3 A simple wave of a hand—

or an object such as a pan—turns Kohler’s

Simplice Response kitchen faucet on or off.

4 Kohler’s Graze Touchless pull-down kitchen

sink faucet in matte black features a threefunction

sprayhead.

TECHNOLOGY

Space is dedicated for device charging and viewing. It’s important to have seamless video

communication. Also, incase of an outage in your area, plan for an emergency power

backup.

SURFACES

Quartz, particularly in lighter colors, will continue to be the driving material for

countertops. Backsplashes go large scale, featuring a solid slab or long subway tile.

Complementary colors and materials mix on perimeter countertops and islands. ➻

1 The Family Hub by Samsung comes preloaded with dozens of features. The screen can be

customized to run all aspects of life directly from the fridge. 2 The countertops and backsplash in

this kitchen are in Cambria's Queensbury quartz. The pattern is inspired by abstract shapes that

emerge from London's fog.

CONNECTING

IN THE

KITCHEN

There is increasing value

on a more hidden, but quite

powerful feature in the

kitchen—connectivity which

means your smart apps talk to

your appliances. Wi-fi enabled

appliances allow everyday tasks

to be streamlined and keep

errors to a minimum.

“For example, artificial

intelligence is used to inventory

the contents of a refrigerator.

Connected food apps then

suggest recipes for dinners

based on those contents,”

says Ken Rieman with Custom

Distributors. “A range can be

connected with a hood to signal

the start of the exhaust fan.

A refrigerator can serve as a

command center with a touch

screen featuring Wi-Fi, voice

activation, cameras and more.”

Does “connectivity” mean

there’s more to break? “It’s

really the opposite,” says Darin

Rieman, Ken’s brother and

partner at Custom Distributors.

“Smart technology monitors the

performance of the appliance

and suggests the most efficient

settings. The most recent

technology will be downloaded

to the appliance to keep it at

peak performance.”

glass shower screen from Basco.

Additional emerging trends for the bathroom include:

SHOWER AND TUB

In demand are roomier freestanding showers to accommodate two

people with zero-clearance entry, integrated seating and grab bars.

Surrounds are larger-format with fewer grout lines. Stylish linear

drains work by allowing the water to flow into a trough beneath

the shower floor.

FAUCETS

Similar to the kitchen, bathroom faucets are going toward voice-activated

or hands-free, in black or nickel, matte or brushed finishes. ➻

electronic lavatory faucet, from

Brizo, features hands-free water

activation with a temperature

enclosure, from Ryan's all-glass,

opens up this shower space

and invites in the warmth and

light from the room's design.

4 A dimmable lighted mirror,

from IBMirror, adds anywhere

between a soft glow for mood

or bright light for function.

housetrends idea book 2021 29


TOILETS

Convenience in the bath comes in the

form of bidets and toilets with selfclosing

lids.

VANITIES

Floating vanities come to the

forefront with integrated electrical

outlets, charging capabilities and

storage.

FLOORING

Radiant heated flooring adds a layer

of warmth underfoot.

TECHNOLOGY

Motion-sensor lighting, temperature

control, leak detection with mobile

alerts, and mirrors with integrated

internet access, are all desired features

to take the bath high-tech.

Wonderful

to have

Wines

on hand

A selection of six premium wines that

are perfect for intimate dinners or

long-awaited gatherings

As the pages turn on our calendars, many of us are beginning to

anticipate a shift from zoom happy hours to face-to-face gatherings

that we’ve missed so dearly. With that in mind, there has

never been a better time to consider taking your wine selection up

a notch. Nicholas Gantenberg, wine director of The Wine Cellar at

The Spicy Olive, suggests these wines that cover all the bases—red,

white and bubbly. Prices range from $50 for most of the selections,

to over $100 for the Cabernet. All are perfect to have on hand for

celebrating the days to come.

Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc

Round, lush and vibrantly balanced

across the palate. Richness and weight

counterbalance bright acidity supported

by flavors of tangerine, lemon zest,

candied orange peel and sweet pink

grapefruit.

Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay

Elegant tastes of apple and pear

characters are balanced by fresh acidity,

and the finish is clean. This is a versatile

pairing wine with fresh salads, grilled

scallops, and most cheeses.

Mount Peak Gravity

A quality red blend that adjusts to

many tastes. It is filled with intense fruit

characteristics that create a full-bodied,

luscious mouthfeel. It’s well suited for

grilled meats and stews.

Belle Glos Pinot Noir: Clark &

Telephone, Dairyman or Las Alturas

Deep garnet or ruby reds, from three

different regions pinot noirs offer

medleys of cherries, plums and black

fruits in a medium bodied wine. Pair

with pork, poultry, or creamy dishes.

Veuve Clicquot Champagne

Golden yellow with creamy, tiny bubbles

and fruity vanilla aromas. Fantastic

champagne for cheeses, with a salmon

dinner or any special beginning.

Daou “Soul of a Lion” Cabernet

Sauvignon

Deep, complex bouquet that presents

notes of cassis, black currant, licorice,

incense, ripe plum and vanilla. A perfect

complement to red meats. This wine is a

real special treat.

your satisfaction

BEFORE

The homeowners, while empty nesters, still needed a much more open floorplan for entertaining. The

low soffits and dividing wall between the kitchen and eating space, as well as the load wall between the

kitchen and family room, made the kitchen space very cramped. In the new design, the soffits as well as the

load wall were removed. We also centered the opening into the dining room to allow for more symmetry

and the ability to add a pantry next to the refrigerator. Moving the sink and dishwasher into the island

gave the much needed space for a new micro drawer, gas range and stainless steel hood. They now have a

beautifully open floor plan large enough to accommodate their family and friends.

We’re all crazy for a

Charcuterie

While traditionally a charcuterie is a collection of cold, cooked meats, that

word—and the board it sits on—recently have exploded into a visual and

gastronomical feast.

When it comes to entertaining—small groups or large—it’s hard to beat the

fun and flexibility of these platters. Portions can easily be scaled, and ingredients

selected can be as affordable or high-end as you see fit. Here are a few guidelines

for getting started. ➻

housetrends housetrends idea book 2021 city 39


40 housetrends.com


Cheeses: Choose 4+

Selecting a soft cheese, a semi-soft cheese, a firm cheese,

and a blue cheese will provide for a balanced combination.

For example: a brie for the soft, a Havarti or mozzarella for

the semi-soft, and a cheddar for the firm selection. If you

don’t care for “stinky” cheeses, consider one with added

wine, herbs or fruit. Have fun with the cheeses. These

selections seem to generate the most buzz among guests.

Meats: Choose 2+

Consider a reliable classic such as ham or turkey, then add

a spicier selection or two—possibly pepperoni, salami,

prosciutto, cured sausage, chorizo, or even bacon. While

some of these meats can be a bit pricey per pound, you

really don’t need a large amount of each. Guests will be

enjoying tasting portions.

Bread and crackers: 2+

A hearty bread, such as a baguette, ciabatta, or nutty whole

grain loaf, sliced into small sections is great for creating

tasty masterpieces using the meats and cheeses along with

a smear of jam, chutney or mustard. A few clusters of

gourmet crackers work well for staging those smaller bites.

Fruits: 3+

Fruits are great for adding splashes of color to your board.

Clusters of red or green grapes and berries add a visual

punch. Apple slices might work well with your Cheddar

cheese. Pears accompany your brie. Also consider dried

fruits in the form of figs, cranberries or dried apricots.

Spreads: 2+

You should include at least one sweet and one savory

spread. In general, a spicy whole grain mustard is always a

good pick to satisfy the savory side of things, but a hummus

or tapenade will work as well. The sky is the limit on the

sweet side— anything from a local honey to chutney or jam.

Final touches

Small, but mighty details to add include pickles, veggies, and

olives. Add in a variety of nuts—walnuts, cashews, almonds,

pistachios, and pecans—there’s not a bad choice in the

bunch. A sprig of rosemary, or another fresh herb add a

perfect finishing touch.

Assembly

Find the right board to build your platters. Large cutting

boards, marble slabs, slate boards or ceramic platters are

great options. Start with one of your larger items as a focal

point, place the items in order of biggest to smallest. Meats

can be sliced, folded or rolled up in individual tasting sizes.

Soft cheeses should be served with a spreader or butter

knife. Hard cheeses can sliced, cubed, or served with a

knife. The smaller items, such as bread slices, crackers and

nuts should be in a couple different areas so that they are

easily within reach. Mustards and jams can be placed in small

ramekins scattered around the board with spreaders nearby.

While assembly may seem intimidating, you really can’t mess

it up. If you’d prefer to have a visual staring point, find a

version online to use as inspiration. Enjoy!

Urbane Bronze

2

Bold and understated at the same time, Urbane Bronze from

Sherwin-Williams is a warm, grounding shade of gray-brown

intended to reflect our current need for serenity and stability.

“The home is now the ultimate retreat from the world,

and color is an easy and effective way to create a personal

haven,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at

Sherwin-Williams. Gray undertones balance the earthy

brown to create a dark, deeply comforting color reminiscent

of burnished metal or timeworn stone. ➻

Aegean

Teal

Benjamin Moore’s Aegean Teal marries the tranquil

nature of blue with green's association with wellness,

while a gray undertone keeps the color modern.

Hannah Yeo, color marketing and development

manager at Benjamin Moore, calls it "an intriguing

blue-green that creates natural harmony and invites

us to take a moment to reflect and reset." The color›s

calming qualities make it an excellent choice for bedrooms

or home offices, and its casual elegance shines

on kitchen cabinetry or built-ins. ➻

Pantone, which standardizes swatches for the design industry,

has revealed two hues for its Color of the Year: the neutral

Ultimate Gray and vibrant yellow Illuminating.

“It’s a combination that speaks to the resilience, the optimism

and hope and positivity that we need, as we reset, renew,

reimagine and reinvent,” said Laurie Pressman, vice president

of the Pantone Color Institute. “Two extremely independent

colors highlight how different elements come together to

express this message of strength and hopefulness.” ➻

Aqua Fiesta

For its first ever color of the year, Glidden has chosen an

accent color: Aqua Fiesta. The Glidden team describes

it as a “vibrant aquamarine that works best in small

doses when combined with other neutral paint colors.”

They suggest pairing this tropical turquoise with a cool

gray to create an inviting spa-style in the bathroom. In

bedrooms or living areas, the addition of cream-colored

fabrics and neutral accessories helps soften the paint’s

boldness.

Working Pantry:

an out-of-sight

solution

54 housetrends.com


If you're a neat,

clean-as-you-go

cook, you may not

need a dedicated

space for meal prep

and staging, but for

the rest of us, a

working pantry could

just be the perfect

solution for keeping

the mess at bay.

No longer tucked away from the

action, cooks and their kitchens are

now front and center in living and

entertainment spaces.

No walls separate them from family

members and guests as they enjoy

their meals in a less formal dining

area. That’s a big upside for the

homeowner. The downside is that the

kitchen—and any mess one might

make—is visible to everyone at the

table.

Ranging from a walk-in room with

abundant shelving to a decked out

“messy kitchen” or prep space which

includes additional appliances, these

rooms provide the amenities to move

unsightly kitchen tasks out of eyesight.

Countertops and electrical outlets

provide the working space to

accommodate small appliances, such

as mixers, toasters, blenders and coffee

makers. ➻

This expansive “kitchen annex” features a

sink, an under-counter refrigerator, an ice

maker and an abundance of open shelving

which is accessible via a custom-built

ladder. J&K Custom Homes photo by Greg

Grupenhof.

“Once you get your

food prep and storage

areas in order,” says

Erica Winchester

from Closets by

Design, “Cooking and

cleaning will never

be the same.”

Amped up pantries might include a

second refrigerator, oven, microwave or

dishwasher. While entertaining, homeowners

can clear the table and place the

dishes in the pantry and move on to

dessert with a clean backdrop. (If they’ve

played their cards right, they could have

one of their teenagers load the dishwasher

out of sight while guests enjoy

an after-dinner drink.) These pantries

also work beautifully as a staging area or

catering kitchen for parties.

While it may sound like a splurge,

incorporating a working pantry when

building a new home or remodeling a

kitchen might actually allow homeowners

to cut a few corners. Since these areas

are meant to be out of sight, owners can

opt for more affordable options such as

metal shelving and laminate countertops.

And when small appliances and entertaining

supplies—such as serving platters,

barware and the “good” china—are

housed in the pantry, the kitchen may

not need as much cabinetry and countertop

space, says Michelle Moran, partner

at J&K Custom Homes. ➻

CLEVER KITCHEN STORAGE

Within the main kitchen there are plenty of clever ideas for taking full

advantage of every square inch of this valuable real estate. For example:

Even if these rooms don’t include a

lot of bells and whistles, the additional

counter space alone comes

in incredibly handy while hosting

gatherings. If you want to take the

party prep up a notch, this is a great

spot for a including a wine rack or

a wine fridge and possibly an ice

maker which is an increasingly popular

appliance for homeowners who

entertain frequently.

Cemented

in

Style

Patterned cement tile seems to be popping up everywhere.

Dating back roughly three centuries, these

unique tiles conjure up thoughts of Moroccan architecture,

Spanish villas and Mexican haciendas. Exhibiting a

handmade look with bold colors and eclectic geometric

shapes, these tiles can completely transform the look of

your home.

Patterned cement tile leaves

a lasting impression

BY LIZZIE KIBLER

The beauty of patterned cement tile is

its ability to complement a wide range of design styles. It

can create a vintage look in a traditional kitchen, but also

establish the perfect focal point in a modern bathroom.

Before you have the first tile installed, it’s important to

learn about what you’re bringing into your home. ➻

The basics

Melanie Stephens, co-founder of Granada Tile, says cement tile has revitalized

an art form that developed in France in the mid-1800s. Some even say the true

origins of this tile date back to Barcelona.

“Unlike handmade ceramic tiles, which are usually hand-painted, glazed and

fired, cement tiles, also known as encaustic tiles, are made by first pouring a

mixture of cement and color pigment into separate compartments in a metal

mold,” Stephens says. “This first color layer is 1/8-inch thick. Next we add concrete

and press the tile under 2,000 pounds of pressure per square inch. This is

left to cure, creating a remarkably strong and lustrous cement tile.”

When it comes to the types of tile you are looking for, material makes a huge

difference. According to Stephens, tiles made with low-grade pigment will not

have the same richness and depth of color and those made without marble

powder—an important component added to the cement—will not have the

same natural luster.

“There are a lot of knock-offs out there, such as cement tile with painted

designs that wear off,” says Melanie Ocana, who owns Rustico Tile & Stone

with her husband, Ray Ocana. “With quality cement tile, the top layer is pigmented

cement. You have several millimeters of color and with wear and tear

you aren’t going to lose color.”

Chris Clamp of Cement Tile Shop recommends getting a sample of any

cement tile you might be interested in installing. “We source from factories

worldwide,” Clamp says. “Although the process is the same, each factory’s’ tiles

have unique characteristics.” ➻

Location, location, location

It all depends on the room you’ve chosen to remodel, but if you want patterned tiles and you

aren’t sure what room to put them in, Stephens recommends to start with the kitchen or a

bathroom. Keep in mind that you are not just limited to flooring—kitchen backsplashes and

shower focal points or wall niches are great places to add a touch of character or vintage style.

Clamp adds that mudrooms and laundry rooms are great places to experiment. He’s also seeing

homeowners use the patterned tile on fireplace surrounds and as accent walls.

Ocana says the beauty of cement tile allows people to place a personal stamp on their home.

“We even have customers changing a design. They take out one particular piece and add

another element. It is just like a piece of custom artwork.”

“As cement tile becomes better known and people are seeing its many uses, they are becoming

more adventuresome with its applications,” Stephens says. “We have even had people put

it on their ceilings.”

While cement tile can be used outside, there are a few limitations. “The tiles are not recommended

for outdoor flooring in areas which experience freezing temperatures, since freezing

and thawing of water on the tiles can weaken them,” Stephens says. “They are also not meant

for vehicular traffic.”

Ocana says that if homeowners do install cement tile outside to do so under a covered patio

or lanai. “If it is properly installed and fully waterproofed—from the subfloor to the sealant—

it can be a beautiful addition to an outdoor space,” she says. “We recommend that homeowners

inspect the tile prior to and after winter to ensure it is withstanding the elements.” ➻

housetrends idea book 2021 67


Pattern frenzy

If you aren’t certain about what

style to use, Clamp says that classic

styles such as florals, geometrics and

Moroccan tiles are among the most

popular. “We do have very classic patterns

that look great in a mid-century

house or more abstract patterns that

work in a contemporary setting, but

we have seen people do so many different

things because they just love

a particular pattern,” he adds. “We

offer a visualizer on our website that

allows you to ‘try on’ our patterns in

different room scenes or even in your

own space.”

Other than the kitchen, bathrooms

are a great place to add patterned

tiles. In that case, it’s important to

know that both Stephens and Clamp

say their tiles are safe to use in showers

so you don’t have to worry about

slipping. “Our tiles have been tested

by the Tile Council of North America

and more than meet ADA requirements

for slip resistance,” Clamp

says. “We do recommend sealing the

tiles for protection from moisture in

wet areas.”

“We see different trends based on

geography. It’s all about the MeaLu

Collection in the southwest and west

coast,” says Ocana. “But northeast,

in New York for example, people are

interested in geometrics and monochromatic

colors.” ➻

Personality comes to life

The beauty of cement tile is the customization. “There are

beautiful homes that are tiled from head-to-toe that do not

feel overdone,” Stephens says. “That is largely because the

patterns and colors harmonize and draw out the best in

each other. Certainly, if you’re going to use a lot of patterned

tile on floors and walls, you may want simple drapes and

upholstery.”

Clamp suggests checking out Cement Tile Shop’s

Instagram feed to get a sense of how much or how little their

clients use. And just like other natural stone tile, cement

tiles are durable and can last a lifetime. “Well-installed, the

tiles can last over 100 years,” Stephens says. “At their core,

encaustic tiles are hydraulically pressed concrete, a very

durable material.”
