I am glad to see conversations and brain storming happening around how the design and build of homes will be changing after this pandemic experience. Some of my Holmes Approved Homes builders are seeing a spike in homeowners wanting to leave denser cities. That’s an interesting idea, because for some of us, working from home will now become a permanent reality.
Kitchens have come a long way. Gone are the days when this was a room buried out of view of house guests — a dark hovel of stoves and burners intended only for the function of making food. Nowadays, the kitchen is a place for gathering, entertaining, working, and relaxing. In many modern homes, layouts are more open and the kitchen visible. Kitchen design is sleek and seamless — every bit as key to the look of a home’s interior as any other room.
Unlike fashion and décor, style trends in home design tend to move at a slower pace, but they are certainly changing. From open floor plans to smart storage solutions, here are some of the home design and architectural trends that are finding their way into more and more of our living spaces.
