Top 3 Custom Home Design Trends for 2017

There’s no denying that 2017 is here and with it, a bevy of new custom home design trends to spot. The economy, environment, and demographics always play a big role in trend spotting. But this year there are two additional triggers: a desire for greater healthfulness and a yearning for a sense of community. Here are the top 3 custom home design trends for 2017 to watch for.

1) Cork surface resurgence: In recent years, cork has resurfaced as a favorite for a variety of uses. As a renewable material harvested from the bark of cork oak trees, cork is appealing since it’s resistant to mold, mildew, water, termites, fire, cracking, and abrasions. Natural cork is a perfect expression of these needs, with the bonus of being low-maintenance.

2.) Healthier homes: Homeowners are actively seeking out healthy water supplies, purifiers, and HVAC systems, along with nontoxic paints and adhesives. A newer element to this trend in 2017 will include enhanced environmental testing. A growing number of builders, remodelers, architects, and interior designers expect health to influence their business decisions due to consumer demand, according to studies from both the Urban Land Institute and McGraw-Hill Construction.

3.) More playful spaces: The harder you work, the harder you should play. 2017 will have more playful spaces implemented in the home because people want their home to be their escape and place to unwind. Spaces that encourage play are trending in the form of putting greens, play rooms, outdoor backyard custom barbeque pits and more. Why shouldn’t your home be your refuge?
