4 Trends in New Home Construction
Designing your custom new house is an exciting project! Here are some of the top design features trending in 2017.
1. Open floor plans
Whether your style is more modern or more traditional, one of the most popular design trends across the board is creating an open floor plan with plenty of space. An open floor plan usually means fewer hallways and a more usable living space. It can make your new home feel bigger and more spacious.
2. Natural and cerused wood
Another way to add a unique touch to your home is by including natural wood grain and warm colors. Cerused wood is a finishing technique that helps bring out grain patterns in wood, giving it a more high-end feel.
White may be the most versatile color to paint the walls of your new custom home, but taupe is quickly becoming a favorite for many new homeowners. It’s warmer than gray, and richer than white, and can add a nice accent to your new home.
4. Personalized spaces
Another trend in new home construction is more personalization. Gone are the days of cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all homes! A local custom home builder can work with you to find the perfect floor plan, color palette, building materials, appliances, and custom details!
