The following 2020 home design trends will help you make the most out of your investment in the first home for your family.
Functional Designs with Flow and Functionality That Make the Most of Space
The first thing that you will want to consider when planning the design of your new family home is functionality and the future. First, you want to have an open design and good flow from the main living areas. In addition, you will want to consider the future, such as if your family will grow and what mobility needs you will have when you retire, both of which will be easier with less space on upper floors and if main rooms and master bedrooms are on the main level.
Using the Best Trim and Lighting Features That Are Both Attractive and Functional
Go bigger with trim and molding to give your home more attractive features. The bolder trim in your home design will also give you solutions for features like interact lighting that can have automatic controls, different colors, and modern features. In addition to the indirect lighting in the trim, simple light fixtures can also be added to walls and other areas to add interesting interior design details.
Colorful Spaces and Patterns That Give Your First Family Home Personalized Custom Details
The bland stains and neutral colors that have been part of kitchen designs in the past are long gone. If you want a modern and trendy kitchen design, you will want to consider options for kitchen finishes that have more colors and give your families gathering space a more personalized custom design. This can be done with painted cabinet finishes, colorful tilework, and countertop surfaces that use more than just grey, black, and white colors.
Functional Open-Concept Kitchen Designs That Are Attractive and Low-Maintenance
Open kitchen spaces have long been the trendy design for new homes, but features like higher cabinets can make these spaces less functional and more tedious to maintain. Therefore, to make your kitchen more functional and easier to maintain, consider making it a little bigger and getting rid of features like high cabinets. Instead, use ventilation hoods that are exposed and replace high cabinets with shelves that give kitchens a more open feeling.
Energy-Efficient Designs, Natural Elements, and Useful Features That Are Not Overly Complicated for Your Family
Energy-efficiency and green features are still an important part of modern custom home designs. First, consider natural features such as planters indoors, outdoor rooftop green space, and water features that add attractive green details to your home. Combining these features with modern energy-efficient mechanical systems and other automated features that are easy-to-use will make your home greener and more functional.
These are some tips that will help you make the most out of your investment for the first home for your family.
