Consider What's Trending When Planning Your Lifestyle Home

Penny Siml - Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Custom home trends can help you plan your come to match your lifestyle.

 
The trending elements of luxury lifestyle homes change constantly. Whether you are building or buying it’s important to keep up with what has risen in popularity and how which elements fit in with your vision of the perfect home.
 
One element to consider is windows. Consider taking advantage of the changing seasons to capture the different scenic views. The changing colors that come with winter, spring, summer, and fall create a rotation of picturesque views from your windows. Large windows are rising in popularity in lifestyle homes. The following is a list of some of the types of windows builders are using to take advantage of natural light and picturesque views:
 
•Bay or bowing
•Picture
•Floor-to-Ceiling
•Transom
•Skylight
 
A second element to consider when designing your lifestyle home is your outdoor space. This has been a big trend in recent years and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. One of the most current trends with outdoor spaces is the use of patios and decks. They were previously usually treated as completely separate spaces of the home. However, homeowners have started viewing porches and patios as extensions of their indoor living spaces. Some components that are often used to achieve this are outdoor fireplaces, full outdoor kitchens, and high-end building materials that make the space luxurious.
 
High-end building materials indoors are also an element that can make a big impact in your lifestyle home. One of the most popular of these high-end materials is marble. Marble is a classic material that is most often used in the kitchen and bathroom. However, where marble has been primarily used for flooring and countertops in the past, there has been an uptick in recent years of designers using it for sinks, bathtubs, and open walk-in showers. Not only is marble visually appealing, it’s also easy to clean, which makes maintenance quick and simple.
 
When building your luxury lifestyle home in the Midwest, considering the current trends can be a great way to get ideas for your project. Ask your builder about these and other elements that are trending in the Midwest.
