Design Trends for Your New Custom Home
The trends in home design change slightly from year to year and decade to decade. As you consider building a new home, here are a few trends that may inspire you:
- Open Spaces: For a number of years, new homes have incorporated “great” rooms – centrally located rooms that merge the family room, living room and kitchen – and the trend is expected to continue. Minimal barrier walls give families more space to gather, work, and dine in one central area. Vaulted ceilings can provide a lighter, more airy appearance. In the kitchen, spacious islands are ideal for providing separation without blocking the view.
- First Floor Master Suites: This is another popular trend, especially with homeowners who expect to live in their homes through retirement age. Some with two-story homes and young families plan for two master suites, one upstairs and one downstairs, enabling them to be near their small children but eventually move downstairs as the kids grow up. Others may want to enjoy great views from the second floor but are mindful that someday they may not want to climb stairs.
- Smart Homes: Technology today allows homeowners to create “smart” homes that incorporate lighting, thermostats, and even appliances that can be controlled by a smartphone. Other must-haves include charging stations throughout the home and outlets with USB ports. Smart homes that are energy efficient can also be very cost-effective.
- Outdoor Entertainment Spaces: Outside spaces can serve as extensions of indoor living space. Affordable wireless technology has made it possible to incorporate amenities typically found indoors, such as TVs and sound systems. Patios and decks have become destinations for family entertainment.
These are just a few of the trends that custom home builders can incorporate into your new home in Reading, PA. Get in touch with D&B Elite Construction at (610) 927-6494 to see how we can help bring your vision to life!
