With a competitive housing market, more homebuyers are opting to build their own home rather than buy an existing home.  Here are some trends we expect to see this year!


1. Larger Floor Plans

As we enter year 2 of the pandemic, we are still spending more time at home than ever.  We’ve mastered working, exercising, learning, and relaxing from home and want a space for each. Homebuyers are building larger homes than last year.

An open and airy great room that flows into your dining room and kitchen is still an incredibly popular in-home design. It’s a great flex space, using the dining room or kitchen island as a place for homework.

On the flip side of the open common area, a separate home office space is a need for most Americans today.

>> Storage: Our master closets and laundry rooms are the ultimate storage space. Built-ins with drawers, shelves and cabinets keep spaces clutter-free and more relaxing. Organizational and functional storage is an easy solution to hide the clutter – no matter where you are in the home.



2. Pools

We don’t just want to enjoy in interior of our home, we want to spend time in our backyards, too!  Outdoor living space to fit your lifestyle is just as important to homeowners.  Over the past 2 summers, the pool industry has been booming and the demand for pools are high — and there is no sign of them slowing down!


3. Windows

With a larger space, you need large windows that let the natural light stream in.  Long banks of multiple windows – sometimes on two or even three walls – create a space full of light, fresh air and views.

Specifically, we are seeing window grids trend in large windows.  Purely decorative and aesthetic, you can add window grids to match the style of your home.


4. Transitional Farmhouse

Transitional style finds a sweet spot between the elegance of traditional style and the comfortable, yet clean lines of contemporary style. Bringing together transitional and farmhouse style creates a unique space that is both enjoyable in present day and for many years to come.

As we move toward a more transitional farmhouse look, we are adding accents and pops of color to our all white kitchens.

>> Tonal color scheme: A muted palette with a splash of color. Lots of green hues are making their way into the home.  This gives a timeless, earthy feel. Think about deep forest green painted cabinets in your kitchen island.  Sherwin Williams 2022 Color of the Year is even a shade of green!
