2012 Home Design Trends Include Mixing Exterior Materials

Design Trends

Now that the weather is warming up and it’s prime time to start thinking about home improvement projects, home design trends are getting plenty of attention. There are a number of interesting trends in the home design industry right now, ranging from materials to amenities to space planning, and more. Take a look at some of the top home design trends, below.

  • Realistic space allocation- Most families use rooms like the kitchen much more than the formal dining room or parlor, so homeowners are building or remodeling accordingly, creating large kitchen spaces that make room for everything from food prep and storage to homework and entertaining.
  • Multi-generational living and universal design- Many families are returning to the traditional living arrangement in which parents, children, and grandparents are all under the same roof, requiring features like multiple master suites and more communal spaces. Aging-in-place and universal design features are also popular, allowing people to stay in their homes even when their mobility or health needs change.
  • Mixing materials- Gone are cookie-cutter facades; homeowners are personalizing the architecture of their homes with a mix of materials, incorporating wood shakes, siding and cultured stone into the exterior design. At Bordner, we offer a number of services to help you add style and function to your home, from stone and stucco to windows, doors, and siding.
