Top Home Buying Design And Trends To Look For In 2016
Top Home Buying Design And Trends To Look For In 2016
Are you in the market to buy a new home this year? Be sure to do your homework first by checking out our list of the top home buying and design trends for 2016. Top Home Buying Trend New home construction tops the list of home buying trends for 2016. The reason why buyers are gravitating toward new construction homes is that it gives them a chance to personalize the space for their exact needs and wants. Home buyers are looking for improved functionality, detailing and finding the perfect match for their family. Home builders are setting up beautiful new home communities so buyers can get an ideal home that is also located in the perfect neighborhood.
We expect the open concept layout to remain strong in 2016. New home buyers love how openness makes for the perfect entertaining space, and it’s also a good option for families with children so parents can keep a watchful eye as they’re sitting on the couch or cooking in the kitchen. Because open concept will remain so popular, there will likely be a decline in requests for grand entrances or foyers as these closed spaces don’t mesh well with the open concept layout.
Open kitchen concept spaces, kitchens in 2016 are expected to be larger, which gives way for the top kitchen trend – double islands. Home owners know the importance of the kitchen for entertaining, and two islands allows for a dedicated space for prepping and cooking, as well as a space for guests to sit, socialize and dine.
The top bathroom trend for new homes in 2016 is separate bathtubs and showers, going against the traditional tub-shower combo. Home builders can accommodate this trend by building large walk-in showers beautified with glass doors and floor-to-ceiling tiling and including stand-alone, centered tubs that are very functional yet displayed like a work of art. Large master bathrooms will contain both of these elements giving homeowners their own personal spa retreat.
Trends in terms of materials in new homes of 2016, we will see a trend that moves us away from granite countertops. Granite has been a popular option for some time now, but for some home buyers it has lost its luster. There are, of course, many other countertop materials to choose from for kitchens and bathrooms. Some materials we expect to become popular are engineered stone (such as quartz), wood or butcher block, and concrete.
Trends in terms of color, the top trend for 2016 is white, as new home buyers want to achieve a contemporary look with clean lines and colors. This color trend will be the focus for kitchens in 2016 where we expect to see the white-on-white look achieved by combining white walls and backsplashes with white cabinets and countertops. New homes come equipped with the standards such as a kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, but home buyers are now coming to expect at least one extra bonus room to use as they wish. The top bonus room trend home builders are expecting in 2016 is the wine room. A customized wine room allows the home buyer to store his or her favorite vintages as well as have a getaway space to enjoy wine with friends and family.
Top Outdoor Trend Home buyers are starting to expect, is the same level of functionality in their outdoor spaces as they do indoors. This is giving way to a 2016 trend of indoor-outdoor living, where the inside open concept space that is perfect for entertaining flows naturally to the outdoor world via large glass sliding doors. The trend will be to equip the outdoors for entertaining too which means large porches for lounging and mingling as well as outdoor extras like fire pits, fireplaces, pizza ovens and outdoor kitchens.
By knowing the top trends in home designs for 2016, you can now create the new home of your dreams from top to bottom. Gather your ideas then speak to a reputable custom home builder who can make your dreams a reality.
