Take a closer look at any modern home and chances are you’ll see a lot of open space. This is the case because homeowners are now trying to design their homes with more open concepts on the inside and they’re sure going to do this in 2018 as well. Therefore, we’ll see a lot of them opting for fewer hallways, small rooms, and lots of open space. One of the best ways to include open space in your new home is to design a kitchen that opens to your dining area. You can also think about merging your dining area with your living room.
Kitchens are the New Social Hubs
We expect to see more and more homeowners turning their kitchens into a place that can be used to entertain guests. This means they’ll be able to hang out with their family and entertain their guests while preparing a meal. If you decide to follow this trend, you’ll want to make sure you include a kitchen island in your kitchen. Moreover, you’ll want to make your new kitchen spacious, since nobody enjoys staying long in a space that feels cramped.
Sunrooms are coming back into style as a means of escape from the high-tech world. People nowadays are looking for more ways to unplug from technology and social media, and sunrooms are a means to sit back and enjoy the surrounding environment. If you decide to add a sunroom into your new home, try to make it as warm as possible, since even though it’s called sunroom, you’ll definitely want to use it during the cold months as well.
Just like sunrooms, people are going back to classic designs by incorporating more wood into their home’s aesthetics. The home improvement décor may come in different forms including wooden plates, a rustic wooden lamp, a solid wooden table, or exterior accents that are made from wood such as corbels, or columns. The home designs of 2018 are likely to be all about wooden interior finishes and natural accents. Wood interiors complement the desire by most homeowners to integrate with nature in today’s world where technology has almost made our lives artificial.
From bold, colored geometric tiles to soft, herringbone-style hardwoods, decorated flooring designs are growing in popularity, especially in bathrooms and laundry rooms. Homeowners today are looking for ways to make rooms pop without adding a lot of clutter to the room. Stylized floors are a great way to allow open space in a room without making it look too barren or bland.
These trends barely break the surface of a sea of new and exciting concepts being offered by home designers in 2018. For a complete breakdown of what is available and which new concepts will best serve your needs, contact Hagen Homes to learn more.
