Building a new home is so exciting! You finally get to lay out the palace of your dreams, filled with every feature you’ve always imagined. But during the design stage, you are soon overwhelmed with choices from all the options available. What features should you include? To help you decide which way to go, take a look at five of the popular trends in home design from home builders today.
1. Oversized Kitchen Island
Adding a spacious center island to your kitchen offers so many possibilities. Everyone loves the extra workspace. Access to the island from all sides makes collaboration so easy you can get the whole family involved. Add a row of seating to one side and create a serving counter for your guests. Special lighting, compact storage and even a sink can make your island the highlight of your kitchen.
2. Bathroom Spa
Bring that healthy, relaxing spa experience home with a beautifully ornamented bathroom. Create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility with passive colors, plants, candle shelves and inspiring artwork. Add a touch of elegance with gold-plated fixtures and stone and deep wood trim. Incorporate soft, adjustable lighting. Complete it with a whirlpool or Jacuzzi-style enclosure and a rainforest showerhead. Aaah!
3. Outdoor Living Spaces
Enjoy the fresh air and cool breezes with a gorgeous outdoor living area. A stone patio or wooden deck is perfect for outdoor gatherings. A shelter protects from the sun and rain, with low-hanging lights that illuminate the dark corners. An outdoor kitchen brings the feast, and a fireplace or pit is great for roasting or just relaxing. Choose from traditional patio furniture or design stone tables or wooden seating. A small sink for cleanup and a pool for swimming, and your guests may never come back inside.
4. Energy Efficiency
One great benefit of designing your dream home is the opportunity to make your new castle affordable to live in. Wise investments into your heating and cooling systems can save you big bucks down the road. Plus, every corner of your home can benefit from modern techniques of insulation and dead space temperature control. Efficient lighting, adequate ventilation, and quality windows add to the savings. Protect your investment by including the best options from the start, and enjoy the benefits for years to come.
5. Supersized Garages
Let’s face it: The garage today is more than car storage. It’s the tool shed, workshop and storage facility. We fabricate, repair and recycle all kinds of things in there. Sometimes it’s even party central to a group of revelers or family members. There’s no doubt we love our garages. When designing your new home with home builders, why not make it extra big? You’ll love the extra space, and your family will enjoy having a place for everything.
