Biggest House Trends of 2019
Many homeowners today enjoy a standard of living once thought possible only for the rich. Almost all newly built homes nowadays have master bedrooms with on-suite baths, walk-in closets, hardwood flooring, and large open kitchens with granite, quartz, and even wood countertops. Today’s homeowners also enjoy more leisure time than ever before, and their outdoor spaces reflect that, as well. Along with the rising standard of living for homeownership, planned communities also continue to increase in popularity. While the basics remain the same year in and year out, personal tastes and design trends are always changing. Here are some trends expected to shape new homes and remodels in 2019.
Overall, designers expect the open kitchen concept to continue in 2019. Many homeowners have been using wood, bamboo, and cork for kitchen floors as of late but, the wood-look tile will most likely win out as the top choice in kitchen flooring for 2019. Colors and cabinets will continue to reflect homeowners’ personal preferences, and quartz countertops should continue their rise in popularity.
Grays and light earth-tones set off by white moldings will once again dominate living rooms, family rooms, dens, and bedrooms in 2019. The trend towards location-based design (a beach themed interior in Florida, for example) will most likely rise in the upcoming year. The home-office will also be more of a factor for home buyers and remodelers in the new year. Many homeowners will have no problem trading a third bedroom or den, for a home office, in search of privacy while at the computer or on the phone with work.
Experts expect two opposing trends to shape the bathroom landscape in 2019. Many homeowners have gone retro as of late. Claw-foot bathtubs, subway tile, and black-and-white tile floors have made a comeback in a big way. On the other end of the scale, ultra-modern sinks, elaborate shower heads, and even motion detecting faucets will also be more popular in 2019.
Pavers have seen a steady increase in popularity over the past twenty years or so and should continue to do so in 2019. More style choices and their relatively inexpensive cost allow homeowners a tremendous amount of flexibility and creativity when designing an outdoor space. Thanks to an expanding number of readymade barbeque pits and stone enclosures, outdoor kitchens have seen a sharp rise in popularity, especially in warmer locales. Also trending for 2019, outdoor living spaces will become more and more commonplace. Many homeowners will trade the patio table and chairs for more of a living room type setup with an outdoor couch, loveseat, and chairs nestled around a coffee table or stone fire pit. Thanks to improved technology, lower prices, and ease of installation, Solar Lighting will be the top trend for outdoor lighting in the upcoming year.
Master Planned Communities
Master Planned Communities will be more popular than ever in 2019. Careful and deliberate design has been the staple of planned communities for many years now. Planners do more than just build and sell a batch of houses in a planned development. Homes, schools, roads, stores, parks, and amenities all get considerable thought when it comes to how each will best serve the people using them. Modern Master Planned Communities almost always feature full size or Executive Golf Courses, Tennis and Basketball courts, at least one community clubhouse and pool, and plenty of walking trails so that residents can enjoy life to the fullest. Many newer planned communities also have their own “downtown” with shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, and parks, as well.
