1. Smart Homes

One of the biggest custom home-building trends in today’s market is “smart houses.” This means installing top-of-the-line technological systems throughout your home to make it work for you. With innovative technology, you can easily control your window shades, turn your thermostat up or down, turn off lights, dock your doors, and even preheat your oven – all with the touch of a button! 

Is your new property going to be your home-away-from home? Making it a smart home is always a fantastic idea for vacation homes so that you can monitor and control your home 24/7, even from a distance. You’ll never have to worry that you forgot to lock the door on your way out again. 

2. Second-Floor Laundry Rooms

There are many advantages to having your laundry room on your home’s second floor. Most laundry is generated near the bedrooms and primary bathrooms – including towels, clothing, bedding, etc. So why not have your laundry room nearby, so you don’t have to haul heavy laundry baskets up and down the stairs? Plus, with this proximity, you might eliminate the need for hampers all together since you’ll conveniently be able to take laundry straight to its designated room. 

When your laundry room is upstairs, guests are less likely to see or hear the loud appliances running. It will also open up more space downstairs for you to utilize for extra storage, a mudroom, or more living space. 

3. Bold Accent Walls

When homeowners want to incorporate bright, bold colors into a room, they might be nervous about taking the plunge and painting every single wall – that’s where accent walls come into play! Using just one wall as an accent wall allows you to experiment with colors without overwhelming the look of the space. It can add more visual interest to a room and show off your personal aesthetic.

Whatever your ideal of bold is, you can make it happen with an accent wall. These statement walls don’t just have to be painted a standout color, they can also feature gorgeous wallpaper, rustic brick, or a one-of-a-kind texture. We love the trend of textured wood walls to add a modern yet bohemian look to the space. 

4. Statement Ceilings

We’re a huge fan of accent walls, and we don’t see that trend going anywhere anytime soon. If you’re looking for another way to add personality to your home and don’t want to opt for the bold wall, you could incorporate statement ceilings. 

The options are statement ceilings are essentially endless. You could choose your favorite paint color or funky wallpaper if you don’t want to change the structure. If you’re willing to go out of the box a bit, we recommend using reclaimed timber to add a rustic feel or an engineered wood beam for a more modern look. 

5. Flex Spaces

In today’s world, how we perform our daily activities have changed. One of the top home trends today is incorporating flex spaces into your home that can be used for a wide range of things. Why leave the house when you can have a custom-built home gym, office, studio, or entertainment room?

When you customize your home, you can take advantage of a flex space and make it exactly what you want it to be. Make your home office inspiring and organized by utilizing built-in wall units, desk set-ups, or shelves. Take your workout studio up a notch with lively colors and built-in speakers to pump you up. Whatever it is you need, you can have it!

Another advantage of flex spaces is that they can be used for multiple purposes. If you have extra space in your office, add a sleeper sofa so it can double as a guest room. Or, make it your hobby room and add extra storage.
