Building a brand new home is truly one of life’s most memorable (and dare we say, enjoyable!) experiences. Not only do you have the opportunity to choose your floorplan, you can personalize details so that it looks and feels entirely your own.
With that said, sometimes the choices for finishes and features are so broad that it can be hard to choose! That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the top design trends for new homes in 2021. Whether you incorporate some or all of these elements into your new home, you’ll end up with a modern space with timeless appeal that you’ll love for a lifetime.
Porches, Decks & Terraces
Private outdoor space has become a priority for new homeowners over the last few years, and many new homes today give you the option to enjoy the outdoors anywhere you’d like! Front porches have been extended to accommodate more seating, while rooftop decks and terraces are often covered to afford maximum comfort and convenience.
Energy Efficient Everything
Homeowners today want energy efficient everything. From 100% ENERGY STAR and 100% Indoor airPLUS Certified designs, to MERV filtration and low VOC paint that reduce waste and create a healthier indoor-air environment, homeowners can feel confident that they’re doing their part for the planet without giving up luxury.
Interior layouts of homes have certainly changed even from a decade ago! Home has become so much more than just the place you return to after work or school. It has become your office, school room, gym, entertainment center, and so much more. Flex space has become an all-important feature because it allows your home to change along with your needs.
Mudrooms & Drop Zones
Increasingly, when we come home, we want to leave the outside world at the door — both figuratively and literally. Mudrooms and drop zones have become essential to keep both our homes and our minds less cluttered.
Granite countertops and kitchen islands have been in vogue for quite some time, but the latest must-have for new homebuyers is the walk-in pantry. Many people adjusted their shopping habits in the past year and a half to buy in bulk whenever possible. With a walk-in pantry, there’s somewhere to store it all out of sight, but organized and accessible.
Separate Tub & Shower
Bathrooms in new homes have become full-on luxury suites, especially in the primary bath. Here we are seeing a growing trend of having a separate soaking tub and walk-in shower. Homeowners want to indulge themselves, and this is one way to do it! Especially since many primary baths feature granite or quartz countertops, double vanities, and elegant light fixtures to create a one-of-a-kind sanctuary.
