Top New Home Trends Here to Stay in 2021

If there’s one thing that we've learned over the past year, it's that adaptability is crucial! The concept of flexible spaces has inspired us to re-evaluate our favorite home design trends to better suit an ever-changing lifestyle. Our favorite part about these design trends is that they will continue to adapt to your family's lifestyle for years to come!


Uplifting Home Offices

Working from home took center stage in 2020 and continues to be a trend in 2021. For many, the convenience of working from home made having flexible home offices more important than ever before. Our De Young ControlSmart™ home automation technology guarantees your home is Wi-Fi ready with Wi-Fi planning, professionally designed per plan. CAT6 and CAT5e cabling provides reliable and super-fast residential networking for a high-performance home office setup. Learn more about De Young ControlSmart home automation here.


Flexible Floorplans

Flexible, multi-purpose spaces are our favorite because they can be used for all kinds of activities.

With our Icon Series floorplans, you can Flex Your Floorplan with Multi-Generational designs and a wide variety of selections including first floor bedroom suites, bonus rooms, lofts, super great rooms, balconies and dens to further personalize your home. To find your favorite De Young Home, browse our floorplans here.

Healthy Homes

With more time spent indoors, improving interior environment is a trend from 2020 that has continued to gain popularity this year. Our homes include Thrive Smart features, which are designed to improve health and quality of life, both inside and outside the home. Thrive Smart includes features for improved air quality and comfort with a variety of products including an Energy Recovery Ventilator for filtered clean, fresh air to expel odors and containments from the home. De Young homeowners also enjoy walkable neighborhoods with nearby trails and parks to promote an active, healthy lifestyle.
