Top Trends In Residential Construction
The trends for new home construction is always changing and we are seeing home concepts come and go as quickly as the years do. These trends help customers decide what kind of home fits their life and their style and is the ultimate factor in what kind of home they are looking to build. If you are looking to build a new home you might be wondering what the top trends are this year.
Here are the top trends in residential construction this year:
- Bigger and more open kitchens
In older homes, kitchens are smaller and usually tucked away in a corner somewhere, but in modern homes they tend to be a focal point of the home and is a hub for family to spend time together.
- More homes have open concepts
Walls and doors are a thing of the past and open concepts are in. The open concepts allow the house to flow from room to room and creates a minimalistic look. This concept can be used on multiple rooms to create the look of a larger interior.
- Large windows are larger than life
Large windows provide better ventilation for the home, but they also give you a great view of the outdoors and your backyard. One added benefit with large windows - they give you a good view of your pets or kids playing outside while you are inside.
- Building a “green” home
A lot of companies are starting to use green building materials for residential construction. Homes that use green materials are are higher quality, healthier and are more energy efficient. Green homes can also save the homeowner more when it comes to energy bills.
- Outdoor entertainment spaces
Homeowners are starting to realize that they aren’t taking advantage of all the square footage in their home. Homeowners are starting to put in outdoor kitchens, firepits, and entertainment seating to extend their living space and take advantage of the different seasons.
- More personalized space
Builders are starting to think more about how people want to live in their home rather than generically making the space and having them figure out how to live in it. We are starting to see a wider variety of layouts based on how your family wants to live.
- The transforming office
It seems that younger generations are working from home more and more these days, but building a separate office can be hard on the budget. It comes down to the dual purpose furniture and the built in cabinets to build your dream home office.
