These days, it’s all about energy – energy efficiency, that is! In an effort to decrease the United States’ dependence on other countries for energy, the federal government has enacted stricter standards for home energy usage. This ultimately works to your benefit, because better energy efficiency can improve your home experience while also reducing your monthly energy bills!
Some examples of ways that your new home can be more energy efficient include…
This year, home fixtures and surfaces are clean and bold. Busy patterns such as marble are going out of vogue. Consider a few of the following tips when you begin to think about your home’s visual design:
With kitchens being used more and more to entertain guests, many people cringe to have their small appliances and food items cluttering the kitchen counter. The answer? An extra-large pantry that doubles as a small utility room!
Instead of a cabinet pantry in your actual kitchen or even a shelved closet, opt for a walk-in closet with ample storage space for all your kitchen items. This will significantly reduce your need for cabinetry in your kitchen. Some pantries these days include counter space for small appliances such as your food processor or electric can opener. You might even consider installing a secondary fridge or freezer!
These days, almost everyone has a smart phone. Thanks to amazing new technology, now our phones can work in conjunction with our houses! Here are just a few examples of smart features that you might want to install…
With these and other great capabilities, smart houses are able to automate numerous actions to make your life safer, simpler, and more affordable.
One great way to get more bang for your buck is to include a finished basement or even an entire third floor to your home design. The finished basement isn’t a “new” trend, per se, but sometimes the classics are classic for good reason. The extra space provided by a finished basement or by a third floor can make a big difference to your lifestyle.
When all is said and done, trends will come and go, and the fashionable home you build today may not be so trendy in 5 or 10 years. This is why the most important decision you make is the one that has your own tastes and interests in mind. After all, the best house you can build is the one that matches your unique personality. Now THAT’S a trend that will never go out of style!
