This article, by Aurora Zeledon, highlights the five hottest home design trends impacting floor plans in 2018.
1. The Modern Farmhouse
The modern farmhouse layout is still very popular among home builders and we are now starting to see builders put their on unique touches on this classic floor plan. By incorporating soft pastels that feel fresh and new, homeowners and builders are really making their plans stand out from similar designs.
2. Social Kitchens
Open floor plans have been trending for years, but now we are seeing this layout taken a step further by combining the formal dining room with the breakfast nook. This twist on a traditional idea is inviting for friends and family alike. A good host makes his or her guests feel relaxed, and a well-thought-out kitchen can help create that easy going vibe.
3. In-Law Suites
Floor plans need to respond to and accommodate the shift toward multi-generational living, which means adaptability is key. A client might not need room for grandparents now, but in a couple of years that may change.
4. Innovative Storage
Greater emphasis is placed on the thoughtful placement of such features as mudrooms and laundry areas, areas for pet amenities, and even home offices. The idea is that space is limited so it is important to use the space you have wisely.
5. Everyday Spa
A massive amount of square footage is not required to have a chic, contemporary bathroom. Many plans keep it simple and streamlined with the must-haves: double sinks and a spacious shower. Installing a standalone shower is just one idea to bring your bathroom up to date.
