Custom Home Building: Latest Trends in Custom Home Construction

When you’re having a custom home built, you’re also building you dream home. While you want it to be timeless and have features that can survive trends, you also want it to be modern and up to par with current design trends (unless, of course, you’re into vintage aesthetics).

Looking ahead to the rest of this year, here are design trends that experts expect to see continue in custom home building:

Hearth rooms/alcoves

Heath rooms and alcoves are especially popular in homes in areas where the winter especially hits. These areas are commonly centered on a fireplace, allowing families and friends to gather around when the weather gets chilly.

Sunrooms & screened-in porches

Who doesn’t like to enjoy the splendors of nature from the comfort of their own home? More homeowners are opting to build a sunroom or screened-in porch, so they can sit and enjoy the great outdoors, while not having to deal with mosquitoes and other insects.

Room additions for parents/in-laws

More families are merging generations together in one home. Because of this, more homeowners are adding private suites for parents and in-laws, which feature separate entrances and restrooms so those moving in still have the availability of privacy.

A similar option, which is also trending, is to construct a dual suite. This floor plan gives privacy away from the home’s shared living areas.

Lots of windows

Those who like to host guests and events are choosing the “wall of windows” addition, which provides homes with an impressive environment in which to entertain.

Exterior alterations

As times change, so do trends in home exteriors. And more homeowners are choosing to alter the outside of their home to their exact details.

Angled garages

Angled garages are often a decision of either concerns about space or as a unique design choice that sets one’s garage apart from the rest of the neighborhood.

Bonus/extra room

Life changes, and with it changes our lifestyles and needs. A bonus or extra room is perfect for adapting to lifestyle changes. It also provides hobbyists and entertainers with extra space to take up their crafts.

Sitting rooms

Some design trends not only mean a new look for your home, but also turn into increased resale value. Because of this, many have opted to add a sitting room to their master living room, and give their home an additional touch of elegance.

Home theater

Why pay movie theater prices for tickets, popcorn and candy when you can enjoy the cinema from your home? Adding a home movie theater is big among movie buffs and football fans.
