New Home Construction Trends in Florida

Energy Savings

Saving energy is at the top of everybody’s list these days. From energy efficient appliances to green materials, there are a lot of different ways you can help reduce your strain on the planet while building a new home. Plus, there are often government-backed incentives to go green and taking advantage of them can help you save money on your energy bill every month thereafter. Greener features can also help boost the value of your home when you go to resell it.

There’s the option for Low-E windows, low flow toilets, solar power, and so much more.

Open Concept Floor Plans

Open concept floor plans have been on trend for many years, and the trend continues to thrive and grow. Kitchens that open up into living spaces and play rooms that open up into bedrooms – there are many ways to make your home more family-friendly by removing some unnecessary walls. No need to worry, there are still plenty of ways to create small and intimate spaces as well.

Copper Gutters

It sounds rather fancy, and it is, but this luxurious trend might be worth the extra cash if you want to upgrade the look of an often-overlooked aspect of your home. Not to mention, copper gutters are more durable while adding unmatched style.

Smaller Square Footage

Bigger has been better for a long time in America, but more and more home owners are seeking out a smaller footprint. Maybe it’s the popularity of the tiny home, or the desire to move towards more simplicity, either way, people are finding creative ways to get everything they want in a smaller space.

Bringing the Outdoors In

Indoor spaces that roll right into outdoor spaces is one of the biggest it-trends in home design. Picture large glass doors that expand the entire length of the kitchen and family room and open up all the way to allow for indoor/outdoor living. Even when closed, large floor-to-ceiling windows make you feel like you are outside. Large covered patios outfitted with televisions and cozy couches are another common way people are creating indoor/outdoor spaces.

Smart Homes

Nest Thermostats, smart fridges, and voice automated lights, these are just some of the many ways that homes are getting smarter. Tech-lovers are excited to find a whirlwind of ways they can outfit their home with better technology than ever before. Some of which will simply help improve convenience, while others can help keep your family safer.
