Custom home trends come and go, but these are import 2017 trends to know.When it comes to Indianapolis custom homes, you know you want a home that will look great for years to come, but still fit in with the current styles. One of the best ways to make sure the interior of your home looks great now and in the future is to follow Indianapolis custom home trends. With these trends, you know you’ll have a great look that impresses your guests and makes them feel right at home.


Here are seven Indianapolis custom home trends to be on the lookout for in 2017:


Matte Appliances

A matte finish gives kitchen appliances a bold look without being completely in your face about it. While traditional appliances are glossy and lustrous, the matte finished appliances give kitchens an entirely new level and depth.


Subway Tile

Subway tile is fantastic in kitchens and in bathrooms because it’s such a classic look without being over the top. To make the tile pop even more, use a gray grout. The darker ground will blend into the surrounding area and help hide any dirt and grim.


Contrasting Islands

Who doesn’t love a great kitchen island? To make this classic kitchen feature modern, make it a completely different color than the surrounding cabinets. If the majority of your kitchen is made up of warm hues, then consider a cool blue for your kitchen island.


Unique Vanities

Vanities have been making a comeback in recent years, but homeowners are ditching the prefab look and opting for more unique options. Everything from a chest of drawers to filing cabinets are being used to create unique bathroom vanities.



The term shedquarter has been around for a few years and refers to space on your property that is outside the main home. Often, the shedquarters is used as a home office. It’s the perfect way to keep home and work separate for those who operate a home-based business.


Mixed Patterns

There’s no such thing as “too busy” any more. You don’t need to worry about your favorite statement piece clashing with other patterns in a room. Now, you can start mixing and matching your favorite patterns to create a signature look for every room in your home.


Navy Blue

Black is out and navy blue is in. From the kitchen to the mud room, navy blue is going to start popping up everywhere. Navy blue is the perfect modern color that goes with just about any color scheme and avoids making a room feel small, like black so often does.
