The Future of Construction: Top 5 New Home Trends for 2019

Are you planning to build a new home?

It's time.

You've been dreaming about this for as long as you can remember. Filling your Pinterest account with all the images you love and following every design account on Instagram. 

Now it's your turn. It's time to build your dream home. 

Check out the future of construction with these top 5 new home trends.

Multi-Generation Living

Multi-generational living is back. And trust us, it's a good thing. I mean, we love our families, right?

The idea of moving in with family to save money is becoming a reality for many U.S. citizens. As parents are living longer, and college grads are returning home, the need for multi-functional homes is in demand.

New home construction trends include in-law suites, where older parents can move in with their children, and basement apartments for college-aged kids who are still trying to figure out their careers. 

There are many different ways to design these suites. Such as main floor laundry rooms and bedrooms for aging parents, or separate entrances for young adults. Rest be assured, no matter what your family situation is, there can be a space for everyone. 

Beautiful Mudrooms

It's not often that we can use the words beautiful and mud in the same sentence, but when talking about new construction mudrooms, the words flow perfectly.

Mudrooms have become an essential part of any new home construction project. They are usually located off the garage and have become must-have in order to keep your home organized and clean. 

Think benches of taking off shoes, cubbies for storage, and even a dog shower to keep man's best friend clean.

Enhanced Bathrooms

Remember the big jetted tubs of the 90s? Well, forget about them. The new way to relax is in a spacious shower with seats and a steamer. It's a pretty must-have spa in your master bathroom.

Big tubs used to be essential. But, let's be honest, they were impossible to bathe the kids in, and even harder to clean.

Comfort and accessibility are must-haves when it comes to new bathrooms. More and more home builders and designating more space for luxury bathrooms.

Multiple Kitchens

In recent years, we all wanted a big, spacious kitchen where the family could gather. Now, we want multiple kitchens.

Remember the multi-generation trend? Well, for that to really work, we'll need more than one kitchen. 

Of course, big open kitchens are still a priority, but now we find ourselves putting in smaller kitchens in a different area of the house. These kitchens are used to create enticing aromas, do additional food prep, and storage.

Do you like entertaining? What about an outdoor kitchen complete with a sink, built-in grill, a brick oven, and smart technology? Now that's how we like to BBQ.

Keep it Green

Everyone's going green these days and building market is no different. Everything from appliances to materials will be energy efficient. 

This means that layouts will implement natural lighting, solar power panels,

"Low-E" windows, and low flow toilets. 

In additions to being energy efficient, the up cycling trend will continue to grow in 2019. Using textures such as reclaimed wood and rustic materials will be popular in the upcoming year.
