The home design industry, like any other industry, is constantly evolving from one season to the next. Environmental consciousness and clever, space-saving design are at the top of the list of buyers’ minds when it comes to the latest in home construction trends. Building custom homes is becoming increasingly appealing in today’s housing market. When you build or remodel your own home, you can have whatever type of home you want. Here are the top six new home construction trends for the trend-savvy builder in South Florida.
The global concern for the environment is mirrored in the construction of new homes. Homebuyers are more concerned with environmentally friendly “green” materials such as countertops, paints, flooring, and adhesives. They are also interested in eco-friendly homes with solar panels, tank-less water heaters, and improved insulation.
Outdoor Living Room
This trend, which began several years ago, is still popular. The outdoor living room has the appearance, feel, and functionality of an indoor living room, complete with furniture, curtains, televisions, and audio systems. Some are designed as courtyards, with energy-efficient glass windows and doors, to provide more privacy.
Kitchen Wood Flooring and Quartz Countertops
In South Florida, the kitchen construction trend leans toward the use of wood flooring and quartz countertops, with marble materials being highly sought after. Because of its versatility, marble has been at the top of the list for many years. Unfortunately, they are not the most affordable options available. Quartz countertops, however, you won’t have to spend a fortune or pay for expensive repairs if you use them.
People residing in both purchased and rented homes are looking for ways to optimize their living spaces as house prices continue to rise. These properties must be able to accommodate changes such as an additional lessor or a family member. Installation of easy-to-remove walls may be an option for adding a new room quickly. Buildings that have yet to be constructed, can choose to install this easy to remove walls.
Water and Energy Efficiency
People will continue to seek out the most effective ways to save water and energy in their homes in South Florida. These include more energy-efficient furnaces, low-flow sinks, and toilets, as well as recycled water that can be used to flush toilets and water plants. What’s great is that when it comes to new homes, water efficiency and energy efficiency are no longer “outliers.”
In 2022, the augmented reality sector is estimated to be valued at more than $90 billion. Augmented reality can provide 3D visualization for existing construction projects, future construction design bids, and casting a vision for any renovation project or construction improvements. The augmented reality tool also provides automated measurements, structural changes, and safety training. As technology remains one of the most important trends in commercial construction, augmented reality will continue to find a purpose.
Earthy Tones and Textures
When it comes to applying a fresh coat of paint to a house that is on the market, professionals frequently recommend neutral colors as the safest option. Homes and businesses will likely stick to earthy tones that provide a comfortable and cozy vibe, in keeping with the minimalistic trend. Thus, colors such as beige, olive, rust, cream, and khaki will be even more sought-after in the coming years, particularly in the interior section of a property. You can never go wrong with neutral colors, they elicit a sense of calmness.
