Top Home Design Trends

As we work through the design with each customer, we typically see similar design concepts carried over from one design to another. Although each design is unique in its own right; here is a list of custom home design ideas that are currently trending.

  • Divide the vanity in the Main Bath from the toilet and tub/shower combo with a wall including an opening or pocket door for privacy
  • Freestanding vanities in all Baths, Powder Rooms and the Ensuite
  • Rear Decks becoming extensions of the living space and incorporating an exterior gas fireplace as the focal point
  • Smaller rear Covered BBQ Decks with steps down to an at grade patio for more privacy in highly condensed neighborhoods.
  • Interest in energy efficiency and "Green" products or materials (example: high efficient furnaces, hot water on demand, spray foam insulation, etc.)
  • Upper Floor Laundry's becoming a room as a whole with potential TV's and sitting areas.
  • Providing a second access to the Laundry Room via a Master Bedroom Walk-In Closet or Ensuite
  • Dual-Use Home Offices / Dens or Music Rooms
  • Cost effective architectural ceiling details not just in key areas of the home
  • Flat or low pitch modern looking roof systems
  • Elaborate chandeliers in Foyers, Stairwells or Bedrooms
  • Although 'open concept' is still very sought after, there appears to be more and more requests for the Kitchen area to be semi-private and not so "on display"; bringing back a little bit more of a defined food preparation area away from guests and family.
