The 5 Most Requested Home Design Trends from Our Clients
The beauty of building a custom home is getting to create a space that reflects and enhances your personal lifestyle. While many features are timeless like open main living, laundry room on the second floor and LOTS of windows, trends are also evolving as our daily routines change. Here are the 5 most client requested home design trends for 2022.
Highly Effective Pantry and Storage Spaces: Having functional, yet visually pleasing storage spaces has become frontline for those who’ve been spending lots of time within the walls of their home the last few years. A practical pantry space and mudroom are becoming a necessity in home design. While the outside world can feel unpredictable and chaotic, organization brings a sense of control and satisfaction into our home. 2022 is a movement of order, simplicity and organization!
Functional Workspaces: As work-from-home culture has catapulted into the spotlight, having a calm, organized home office is a priority. Our clients have designed their offices with lifestyle in mind and have even transformed extra bedrooms into their ideal working space. Offices with lots of storage, soundproofing, privacy and built-ins are just a few of the current design features that are requested.
LED Lighting: Lighting is the jewel of the home. In order to highlight certain angles, shelving, butler’s pantries and other commonly overlooked features, LEDs have become the go-to lighting fix. It is extremely easy to install and the look is timeless and clean.
Dedicated Entertaining Spaces: Entertaining at home has taken on a whole new level, with dedicated wine rooms and lavish wet bars replacing the classic wine cooler. Enhance these spaces with decorative lighting, tile or wallpaper accents and temperature controlled systems.
Indoor-Outdoor Connection: Indoor-Outdoor living is a major staple in modern homes, especially in the Pacific Northwest where nature often inspires home design. Sliders and pocket doors create a seamless flow from the indoor to outdoor areas. Some clients really get creative and install large slabs and folding windows in their kitchen to create a beautiful, indoor-outdoor social setup.
