Custom Home Design Trends

September 11, 2016

The home design world is just like the fashion world with its ever-changing popularity in trends. Some fads come and go, while others seem to stick around for decades. We love this part of the home building process – especially when our clients mix their own personal tastes with current trends. So we feel it’s only right to keep you in-the-loop on what is trending in custom home design and how we incorporated those trends into our Everbright homes.

For starters, one of the most apparent trends is happening outdoors. Creating an outdoor entertainment area fully equipped with an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and comfortable seating is taking the outdoor space and turning it into another “room” of the home. With our Everbright homes, we took it up a notch by having the outdoor entertaining space covered and more protected from the elements. This way, homeowners can enjoy the space no matter what season or weather.

On the inside of homes, we are seeing the trend of yesteryear come back. Just as in older homes, our homes have traditional features like high ceilings, wood floors, built-ins, and beautiful banisters. We make sure to also incorporate modern designs with great master bedrooms, huge walk-in showers, soaking tubs, game rooms and home theaters.

In the heart of the home we are seeing large kitchens that open up to the living area. Although many kitchens are being outfitted with modern kitchen-technology there are still ways homeowners have been adding a touch of old-fashion by having fireplaces in unconventional places like the breakfast area or near the oven. In our Everbright homes we have gone with the old charm of butler pantries connecting the kitchen with the formal dining room – just like the old days!

Home design is such an expressive art to show the personality of each home owner. Building custom homes to suit the needs of each client is our goal and, above all, our pleasure. We have spent time on our Everbright homes to include features that not only meet the trends but also the requests from our clients. We love what we do and we know it shows in each home we build.
