MORE DOORS - Pinterest has a point

Here's something new. Pinterest shared their 2021 Trend Predictions, and we are shook that the long-lasting open floor plan idea might be finally slowing down. Since March of 2020, we have been strapped with having to improvise. Improvising in that open space, none the less. We took it upon ourselves to create home offices, homework stations, exercise rooms, etc. We did it to have a piece of mind…a little bit of sanity and privacy.

So, when we look at the “More Door” idea from, as Pinterest calls it, it makes total sense. We want more walls, more doors, more dedicated spaces for activities we had never done in our homes pre-pandemic (oh, those were the days).

All good trends come back around and we are seeing some old school trends are returning. Searches for home libraries are up 7x. Bookcase dividers are an easy way to bridge open floor plans, and these searches are soaring 150% in search increases. It makes perfect sense. Why didn't we think of it...oh wait...

Ameriwood Home isn't behind on this trend. We have been creating flex-living items for several years. You know, desks that match living room or bedroom collections. Or coffee tables that have a lifting feature to double as a workstation. It's been on our minds for a while. Now's our time to shine! Here’s a quick list of just some of the items we have that can work in new dedicated spaces!

  1. Rebel 3 in 1 Media Dresser and Desk Combo! This beauty comes in five different color options and creates a totally functional dorm room/student learning center.
  2. Reznor Lift-top Coffee Table. Let's talk about convenience; we love being able to watch TV and change into work mode in the blink of an eye with the rising tabletop feature.
  3. Marshall 3 Shelf Metal Rolling Utility Cart. Let’s face it, with wheels, anything is possible with this item. Move it anywhere you need in your home!
  4. Williams Kitchen Cart. Perfectly created for the kitchen but can be used as a bonus in the laundry room too. Don't be afraid to get creative and make yourself a feel-good space like a coffee station.
  5. Lory 54" Wall Cabinet. These cabinets are great for added storage in your laundry room, basement, or garage.
