2019 Home Building Trends
There are many details to consider when building your new home. Blending current home design trends with classic features ensures long-lasting appeal. Each year ushers in new ideas for home design and finishes. We’ve pulled together a few of the top trends for you to add to must-have features list for your new home.
- Full height backsplashes that stretch from counter to ceiling that float behind shelves and range hoods creating a clean & cohesive look.
- Floor plans that are open and flexible for the areas where people live and interact. A thoughtful layout may also include glass and steel room dividers to give the illusion of an open plan concept while still offering privacy and spatial division.
- Color saturation is a shift away from grey tones to pull in emotion. Bolder colors & richer hues can make more muted furnishings and décor pop. Watch for dramatic reds, statement pinks, bold yellows and organic greens. Pantone’s color of the year is “Living Coral” which is a fun, bright & optimistic hue can be used in many ways from wall paint & wallpaper to accessories such as lampshades, wall art, pillows and throws.
- Copper accents provide red and orange tones and overall earthy hue provide a much-needed breath of fresh air for 2019.
- There’s an overall increase in developing smarter homes. Examples include voice and phone-controlled home amenities such as automated lighting, whole-house sound systems and home security devices.
- The concept of biophilia is the means of connecting humans with nature. Having access to the sight of greenery in the form of live plants and living walls, the sound of water, tactile organic materials (e.g., wood & stone) provides a calming influence on people. Amplify natural light and bring the outdoors inside with the help of large windows.
- Master bathrooms with a spa-like environment including free-standing soaking tubs provide sancturaries away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
- Matte black for kitchen and bath fixtures adds a sleek look.
- Geometric patterns in tile, wallpaper and textiles are expected to become a dramatic presence in new home design. Bold colors with oversized patterns will be popular for tile patterns and textiles.
