When it comes to Florida home design, there are many exciting trends to look out for in 2021. This year is projected to be especially good for home buyers; and if you’re considering a move to a new Tampa home, be on the lookout for these up-and-coming design trends.

Spacious Home Offices

If we learned anything in 2020, it was the importance of a bright, organized home office. Now, in 2021, spacious home office designs are sure to take the stage. As remote work continues this year, you’ll notice an increase in dedicated office spaces in Florida homes.
Expansive windows to let in natural light, as well as vibrant interior color palettes, will likely shine in home office designs this year. Floridians need at-home workspaces that are cheerful, calming, and clean all at once.

Dark Exterior Accents

Dark charcoal gray and even black as exterior home accent colors will increase in prevalence in 2021. Paired with a creamy white, pale beige, or lighter shades of gray, dark accents will bring a modern edge to the look of your Florida home. This design trend also pairs well with lush, green landscaping to add contrast and brightness to the exterior of your property.


Have you heard of cottagecore? It’s a rising design trend that’s likely to reach a peak in 2021. Cottagecore is an aesthetic that, in home design, draws influence from western farmhouses. Imagine a life in a farm cottage: This style involves soft color palettes, vintage-inspired decor, and flowers and houseplants. For the exterior of a home, cottagecore can take the form of wood accents, window shutters, pastel colors, and even ivy as part of your landscaping. Charming and simple, cottagecore is set to take off in 2021.

Restructured Open Plans

Open-home plans have dominated residential designs for decades. But with many Tampa households now juggling multiple at-home workers and students, open-home plans are likely to be restructured in 2021. Partitions, sliding doors, and French doors are likely to be introduced to home designs to give each household member greater privacy during the workday.
