Even though 2014 is almost on its way out, it’s still interesting to take a look back at the most popular home design trends we’ve seen during the past year. It truly was a year of innovation, as well as of intricate and personalized designs. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular changes we’ve seen in home building over the last year.
The Master Suite
It seems that for most new homes, the master bedroom has been laid to rest in favour of a master suite. Retreating to your master suite is almost like retreating to a terrific spa getaway, which is exactly the result homeowners are looking for. These suites can be minimal if desired, but many homeowners prefer the luxurious variety, which can even include adding a sauna or other spa amenities.
The Guest Suite
If your home has always had a guest bedroom, you’ll be happy to know that guest suites are making an appearance too. A recovering economy means that more travelers are opting to stay with family and friends. As a result, people want to be able to accommodate them. The result is a guest suite that might even be able to put the most exquisite hotel room to shame.
The Smart Home
You’ve heard of smart phones, and you probably even have one in your pocket right now. However, smart homes are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. Smart homes encompass everything from advanced security features that can be operated through mobile devices to designing a home that has an open floor plan with strategically-placed appliances.
If you’ve been thinking about designing and building your own home, it’s important to work with a company who understands the current trends, but who also will listen to your ideas and bring them to life in ways you never imagined. These trends will become commonplace soon enough, however it will be interesting to see how they evolve in the near future.
