There are a variety of reasons why people are moving in, but here are the top six benefits that will change your family’s life.

Families often meet up at the new amenity center, which serves as an excellent setting for social gatherings.

4. Neighborhood Comradery

Building meaningful relationships with your neighbors is what truly makes your community feel like home. To gain a sense of comradery, new homeowners join groups developed by people in the neighborhood. Fitness-related groups, such as Zumba, are a popular and healthy way to form connections with neighbors.

Making your house feel like a home can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. Paint colors, living room configurations, wall art and more – Wildcat Ranch has the inside scoop this year. Here are 8 new design trends to try in 2021!

1. Return to Traditional

The past brought overwhelming elements of midcentury modern and Scandinavian-style design, but now homeowners are seeking comfort and familiarity throughout their spaces in a more traditional sense. Traditionalism has been known to incorporate timeless designs along with classic artworks, antiques, and pieces of history to invoke a sense of harmony and order. Traditional home designs are inspired by anything from French Country to Neoclassical styles, including slipcovered sofas, antique accents, classic prints, statement lighting and thoughtful colorful palettes.

2. Emphasis on Nature

After spending countless hours inside this past year, homeowners have reimagined their spaces with new preferences inspired by the beauty of nature. This year we will expect to see an emphasis on raw materials such as natural fiber textiles over synthetics and furnishings like wicker, rattan, and cane. Designers are incorporating live-edge wood accents, like dining tables and shelves, as focal points to pair with calming colors and “earthy” shades taken from warm greens and emeralds, cobalt blue, bronzes, and browns. And what’s nature without plants? Houseplants are #1 on the list of home elements rising to popularity in 2021. Plants have been proven to reduce stress, boost productivity and increase the air quality in your home. Bring the outside in with a faux planter or real succulent to liven up any space!

3. Rustic Details

“Cottagecore”, a new name for the classic collection of rustic and antique furnishings, cozy floral textiles, and light earth tones, is trending this year. Rustic details are among 2021’s top interior design trends. Homeowners are embracing individuality and swaying from sterile uniformity to opt for artisan features like handmade textiles, reclaimed vintage furnishings, and unique hardware. In incorporating rustic details, designs should blend new and old décor to create the perfect balance—consider using repurposed vintage pieces for an expert contrast.

4. Embracing Color

Pantone may have announced Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow as the 2021 colors of the year, though designers and homeowners are embracing the use of many other strong colors throughout a home. As contemporary modern styles become a day of the past, white walls become a canvas for self-expression in any space, not just one accent wall. The use of tropical colors and cool hues can mimic surrounding nature and beach getaways as well as inviting atmospheres. Thus, using cheery yellows and soft pastels can evoke happiness in the home.

5. Flex Rooms

As the need for remote work and school has increased, so has practical workspaces. Flex rooms have long been designed as intimate multipurpose spaces that accommodate evolving needs for a homeowner. From office guest rooms to study nooks, these tend to be the perfect space for the family to gather or finish work even in a confined space. No need to build on when room dividers, standing desks and strategic furniture placement can transform any flex room into a practical space to live, learn and work.

6. Outdoor Living

As the desire for outdoor experiences continues in 2021, homeowners are looking to transform yards into enjoyable, functional spaces. Elevate barbeques with a complete outdoor kitchen or add throw blankets and pillows around a fire pit. Fill the yard with games like cornhole, bocce, and horseshoe for entertaining too—the possibilities are endless year-round. Houzz also reports that pergolas are the new hot trend for outdoor spaces, especially in the summer for much-needed shade.

7. Reimagined Kitchens

Gone are the days of plain white walls and minimalistic decor, just as all-white kitchens are being upgraded to new dark-colored cabinets and countertops. Homeowners are choosing grey, green, and even black kitchens to balance bright color schemes within other spaces. According to Homes & Gardens Magazine, one enviable trend projected to infiltrate 2021 kitchen designs is open concept, floating shelves. To complete the aesthetic, designers are filling the shelves with “display-worthy” gear such as clay plates, colored glassware, popular cookbooks, and copper cookware.

8. Statement Furniture

Whether incorporating a family heirloom, vintage find or cloud couch, one of the biggest trends in 2021 is the introduction of one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. According to the online furniture marketplace, soft textures that beg for an impromptu nap are anticipated to be big this year. What better way to relax after a long day than on a comfortable couch with a bar cart full of the perfect drink concoctions? Google Trends data analyzed by Roofing Megastore shows the “drink trolley” has increased in popularity by 117% this year alone. If you don’t already own this staple piece, it is a must-have in 2021!

It is evident that this year’s décor trends have a lot in store for homebuyers. Can you imagine what you will incorporate into your home? Discover the possibilities in this Texas Community.

Picking a new home is a big thing in a family’s life. While parents have a list of things that they need, such as enough space to host holiday parties and close proximity to work and top-rated schools, kids have their own needs that a home needs to satisfy. When viewing homes, families should consider factors such as how close it is to a school, how much room there is for pets, and how they could see their family growing in it. Check out some of the other common suggestions below!

Imaginative Play Area

The playground is a great way for kids to burn energy and meet new friends while parents get to take a break, but they play an important role in a kid’s growth, as well. Any child development expert could tell you that at a playground, children learn social skills, stretch out their muscles, and develop eye-hand coordination. Every neighborhood needs one!

Parks and Trails

With the demands of school getting bigger and technology coming up with more distractions, the time that a kid spends outside is shrinking drastically. That’s why it’s important to live in a neighborhood where it’s easier for kids to get out and move around. Getting outdoors is an essential part of growing up. Outside is where imagination can take over. Parks and trails are an important part of this, serving as a place for children to have their own adventures, explore the natural world, and have fun in the fresh air.

Super Swimming Pools

Come summertime, everyone needs somewhere to cool off! What’s better than splashing around in a pool? Parents might want to catch up on their tans, but for kids, a swimming pool is the ultimate social spot. Whether it’s part of the community’s offerings, or it’s right in the backyard, no one can go wrong with a pool.

Not Too Far from Friends

Part of the reason why the early childhood years are so important is because children are forming the relationships that they’ll carry throughout life. A great neighborhood should be able to help foster these relationships. Sidewalks open up a whole world to kids, from letting them ride bikes down the way to a friend’s house to giving them an open canvas for chalk art. Parks give them space to play in. Wildcat Ranch in Crandall, Texas, even has a school on-site, so not only are kids close to their education, they’re also close to their friends as well.

Room for Rover

No need to leave furry friends out of the fun – a home should have plenty of space for pets. After all, they’re family too, and their needs to be respected as well. That means a big backyard to run around in, plenty of parks and trails to take a walk to, and a separate space for them to lay their head (and tear up their toys).

An ideal family home is one that kids can explore childhood and grow up in. That’s what makes the homes at Wildcat Ranch so special. Located in Crandall, Texas, this community creates a hometown feel and offers a brand new on-site school, Noble Reed Elementary School. As part of the Crandall Independent School District, Noble Reed Elementary is just one of the many features that make Wildcat Ranch perfect for families and kids.
