Today, Holbrook & Nichols Construction wants to give you a sneak peek at what’s ahead in our industry. Check out these top trends in custom homes for 2019:

Spacious, yet small

Homeowners are still looking for open floor plans in their custom homes. However, there’s now a twist. The trend is moving toward open, modestly-sized houses. The idea here is that a modern home should be designed to create warm, intimate atmospheres. How can you create spaces that are small in feel yet open in design? Rooms are separated by lighting, decor, or flooring.

Home colors move from warm to cold

In addition to changes in size, there have also been changes in color. No longer are colder colors gaining in popularity. Instead, warm tones like earthy neutral colors are becoming tops in the minds of custom home buyers. Consider choosing warm blues and greys, deep reds and oranges, and even black. Bright colors that pop are trending for bedrooms in 2019.

All-natural style

As far as the overall aesthetic for both furniture and home design, 2019 is going to represent a call back to nature. Owners of custom built homes often look for plant decor, minimalist features, and wooden furniture. Homeowners want spaces that are easier to maintain. Anything that connects a home back to the environment while also requiring little care are considered must-haves for 2019.
