“When it comes to kitchens, a couple of years ago people were being adventurous with countertop stones or backsplashes, but now my clients want their kitchen design to be classic and timeless. They’re gravitating to natural wood, classic marbles, and designs that will stand the test of time.” — Eskin
“As kids get older, clients are turning playrooms into multimedia rooms, with workstations, TVs, a dedicated place to play video games, and lots of bean bag chairs.” — King
“I’m seeing a lot of automated furniture in the family room, like high-design, luxury recliners. My clients want this room to be overly comfortable. We’re also seeing more moody colors, like deep greys and chocolate browns.” — King
“Clients are requesting larger dining rooms because they are seeking a dedicated space to meet and gather. We’re installing dining tables with elliptical shapes and curved, soft, sculptural edges. Popular dining chairs also replicate this aesthetic and are soft, approachable and easy to sit in.” — Eskin
“The powder room is where people get funky with lights and mirrors and there are no more rules. People want guests to come out of this room and say, ‘Wow.’” — Bertuzzi
“We’re doing a lot of home offices with backdrops for Zoom and video meetings. We recently installed a vivid decal of downtown Detroit in a client’s home office.” — King
“The platform bed is still number one, particularly wood and metal beds. Side tables are much lower and wider. The bedroom is now incorporating a lot of jewel tones, like navy and emerald green, inspired by nature.” — Bertuzzi
“Bathrooms are going high-tech. People are adding heated floors and towel bars, and we’re seeing large showers with all the features and electric, high-end toilets. Now bathrooms include built in medicine cabinets so clients can keep everything off the counter.” — King
“If clients have a dedicated dressing room, we are installing shelves with lighting, as well as glass doors that cover closets but still give a peek into what’s inside. If space allows, many clients are turning closets into a lounge area, with bookshelves, chairs and a desk.” — King
