Top 65 Home Trends in September

From Elevated Backyard Sheds to Revamped Country Homes

— September 4, 2021 — Art & Design
The top September 2021 home ideas reveal the ways that people are making their living spaces more functional, hygienic and cozier for the arrival of fall and winter in the Northern Hemisphere. With extended periods indoors over the last few years, there's a shift in what people want out of their living spaces.

As a result of using their living spaces differently, people are investing in everything from smart sanitizing doormats to backyard structures that could double as home offices. With a heightened focus on cleanliness, there's also the emergence of washable rugs for households with kids, pets and adults who don't want to have to worry about the stress of cleaning up occasional messes.
