5 Custom Homebuilding Trends for 2016

Custom luxury homebuilding ideas, Wooddale Builders, Minneapolis, MNLooking for chic and stylish homebuilding ideas? Whether you’re planning to renovate or start from scratch, here are five Minnesotan homebuilding trends to class up your humble abode and wow your guests. Check them out and see if you agree!

1.  Open Spaces Are Happy Places.

A wide open floor plan maximizes your space and increases your family’s togetherness. Strive for a welcoming studio apartment feel by tearing down walls dividing your kitchen, family room and dining room. Add luxurious floor-to-ceiling windows for a plethora of natural light and views of the great outdoors.

2.  Feel the Heat.

Fire is so hot right now! Family room fireplaces and backyard fire pits are perfect for those frigid winter evenings and buggy summer nights we Minnesotans know all too well. A cast-iron fire pit on your patio turns every night into bonfire night, while a wood or electric fireplace warms hands and hearts alike.

3.  Smartest Home on the Block.

From interchangeable tablet wall mounts and smartphone charger stations to Bluetooth AirPlay speakers, technology seamlessly integrates into many custom homes. The omnipresence of Wi-Fi and the shrinking size of devices mean less demand for spacious desks and separate home offices.

4.  Leaner and Greener.

Downsize to a smaller, energy efficient home to reduce your impact on the environment. Like the trend in cars from Hummers to Priuses, Minnesota green neighborhoods include solar panels, electric car charging stations and rain gardens. Not sure if you’re on board the green train? Green homes are cost-effective and often nearly self-sufficient. Nothing is quite as convincing as saving money.

5.  Wood is Good.

From shiplap siding to oak floors and cherry cabinets, wood provides a rustic cabin appeal that is both timeless and contemporary. Accent your live space with a splash of white for a pleasant and cozy atmosphere.

Whether you’re looking for a custom single-family home, custom townhome or custom villa, Wooddale Builders will create the living environment you envision. Contact us to learn more!
