06 Sep Consider These Design Trends
As the calendar year of 2016 heads into the end of summer and toward the fall, there are several popular Custom Home Design Trends that new home owners have made popular this year in their custom dream homes in the Greater San Antonio area. You may want to take these into consideration as the process begins for building your new home.
The kitchen as many of you know has become one of the main focal points not only when building a new home, but also among the Custom Home Design Trends that have been noted throughout 2016 thus far. One such trend that has consistently remained popular in kitchens this year is “white on white spaces.” This “clean look” with the usage of white cabinets with a light colored or white counter top or back splash has returned in a big way. The main factor attributing to making this one of the most frequently seen of 2016’s Custom Home Design Trends, is the overall desire of new home buyers and builders to use the kitchen as the center of the home for entertaining guests, as the brightness of the “white on white” helps in opening up and making the appear large.
Double islands in the kitchen is another of this year’s Custom Home Design Trends that has seen many who have built a new home include, for much of the same reason. One island for seating and entertaining, with a second for much of the same and in some cases even for a sink, makes for more overall space when trying to be a good host.
As far as Custom Home Design Trends in regards to flooring this year, reclaimed lumber continued to be the choice of many. First gaining major popularity a few years back, this eco-friendly option in floors adds a unique look, and a bit of character and personality also.
It was not very long ago that brass fixtures in a newly built home were considered outdated and less than savory as far as Custom Home Design Trends go. However, they are back with a vengeance this year, mainly due to how “unique look of the brass when partnered with a more contemporary style fixture.
Continuing to take priority among the new homeowners in 2016 was a focus on indoor/outdoor living spaces. As is commonplace here among each of the Custom Home Design Trends discussed, this too plays into the open space concept that has become so important in recent years. Allowing indoor and outdoor spaces to flow seamlessly such as an outdoor living room type area around a fireplace or the indoor dining area opening to a patio space.
