A new year means new and exciting trends in the world of home construction, and 2018 is proving to be no different! Here are all of the trends that you can look forward to seeing in the home construction industry this year. Which one will you choose to incorporate into your new property or home remodeling project?
The Trends in Home Construction to Watch For
- Open Floor Plans: Open floor plans will continue to be popular over the course of this year, as homeowners love the spacious feeling they lend to spaces both big and small.
- Walk-In Showers: Open concept homes aren’t just stopping in the living room! They are also moving into the bathroom with walk-in showers. Many shower-lovers are installing gorgeous glass panels to allow an open view of the bathroom and the sunlight streaming through any skylights or windows in the room.
- Replacement Windows: Energy efficiency continues to be a priority for homeowners, and many current homeowners will be installing new, modern and energy efficient windows in their home. Energy efficiency also no longer means settling, as many options can mimic modern window frames and historic frames.
- Wainscoting: Crown molding has been the king of indoor trim for a long time, but wainscoting is slowly becoming more common in areas like the living room and formal dining room.
- Paving Stone Walkways: Do you want to make a statement to everyone who visits or drives by your home? A unique way to do so is with paving stone walkways. Whether you want to use traditional brick pavers or unique stones and tiles, this type of walkway serves both a practical and a decorative purpose.
- Outdoor Kitchens: As elaborate outdoor hardscaping and landscaping designs become more popular; homeowners are looking for new ways to spend time outdoors. Outdoor kitchens are perfect for entertaining family and friends throughout the year, whether at a summer bonfire or a fall pumpkin carving party. Some outdoor kitchens even include built-in grills and wet bars!
