When you’re in the process of designing your custom home, it may be easy to get wrapped up in all of the current trends and lose sight of the timelessness of your home. To avoid this, make sure that you’re looking at the longevity and versatility of the current trends. Below are a few 2021 trends that you can discuss with your custom home builders to include in your new dream home.
One trend right now that you can include in your dream home is to have a bathroom that is a cozy sanctuary away from the rest of your life. Using sleek, spa-like elements can help you feel like you’ve been whisked away to another world once you’ve closed the door. You can opt for neutral tiles and paint colors as well as luxurious fixtures for your tub, shower, and sink.
Another recent trend you might consider is displaying interesting pieces of pottery and glassware in your kitchen, dining, or living area. Something great about built-in display shelving is that you can completely change up its appearance by putting new objects on the shelves. So if you want to follow this trend, you can without the worry of the built-ins becoming outdated. This is a timeless feature that you can easily update as trends shift and change.
Indoor/Outdoor Living Spaces
If you plan to spend time in your dream home’s yard, you may want to invest in some indoor/outdoor living spaces. Using large windows or sliding glass doors can help your outdoor living space feel like an extension of the indoors. Using a pergola or overhang to provide shade and make your outdoor space feel more like it’s a part of the indoor space as well. An additional perk of this is that it can make your home feel larger. The average custom home is between 3,000 and 3,5000 square feet, and you can add a few hundred more by having a spacious patio or deck space in your yard.
If you’re in the process of building a new home, you can talk with your custom home builders about including these trends in your designs. Though these are particularly trendy at the moment, they can also stand the test of time and won’t become quickly outdated.
