Have you commissioned a new home builder to construct a new property in Brevard County, Florida? If yes, it’s important you keep these trends in mind, when designing your dream home.
5 home building trends you need to be aware of in 2018
- Homes will become smarter
If you’re a lover of technology, you’ll love 2018’s biggest trend-smart homes.
While homes have been smart for years, more number of Floridian homes will go the tech route this year. Remote controlled locks, centrally controlled security cameras, sensor-deployed lighting, heating & air-conditioning systems, remote-controlled irrigation & lawn maintenance systems and another hi-fi tech will make homes more efficient and comfortable.
Speak to your new home contractor for advice on making homes smarter.
- Wall colors go natural
With fall almost upon us, real estate color palettes are undergoing a makeover. Maple, sweetgum and persimmon are some of the lush trees that populate Florida in autumn. Get inspired by them this 2018 and paint your home in hues of reds, pinks and oranges.
If you’re thinking of going darker, choose royal blues mixed with white for the best effect.
- Freestanding fixtures will embellish homes
Fancy floor lamps, rustic-looking table fans, carved side tables and uniquely-shaped bookcases are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to freestanding fixtures. This year, you’ll see many Florida home builders experimenting with elegant freestanding pieces to decorate homes.
If you’re not sure what to add to your new house, just consult a member of our team. We are custom home builders and we can help you design a spectacular home.
- Copper makes a comeback
Faux-copper embellishments and fixtures have always been used to make homes look more elegant. But in 2018 we’ll be seeing the comeback of real copper. From copper vases to copper statutes to copper doorknobs, you can ask your new home builders to go crazy with copper.
If you’re feeling really experimental, try copper lighting, copper kitchen sinks and elegant copper mirrors in your new home.
- Homes become more elderly-friendly
The population of the elderly is growing exponentially in Florida. Research shows that over 23% of the entire Floridian population (that’s 20 million people!) is over the age of 60. This makes necessary homes that are elderly-friendly.
Homes will see an inclusion of elevators, walking ramps, supporting rods, call bells, eye viewers, bathroom pedestals and more as part of the home building design. Our team of home builders in Viera FL can design elderly-friendly homes for you.
