If you are building or renovating, it can be helpful to stay up to date with the latest trends for new homes.
While it is important to stay true to your own unique style, it can be handy to look at what is on everyone else’s radar to avoid any outdated styles that you might regret later… or to pick up some cool new ideas!
As we come into 2021, it seems that environment and sustainable architecture is on the forefront of many people’s minds.
You can see this theme play out through some of the biggest trends apparent at the moment:
Bringing The Outside In
One of the most prominent trends of the new year is the bigger emphasis on nature and natural settings.
This means more indoor plants and green walls, but also more natural lighting. Going hard on windows and skylights to bring the sunshine and air into the home has become a popular feature in many new homes.
The extra windows and skylights also have the environment in mind. More natural light means less reliance on electricity during the day and can help with cooling your living areas.
Pergolas and front porches are always a good idea, no matter what is trending. They provide an extra relaxing or entertainment space… and you can never have too many!
There are some great ways to style and design these areas that dramatically improve the appearance of your home, as well as its functionality.
You’ll be the envy of the street!
Flat and Neutral Roofing
When it comes to roofing, a more minimalist approach is becoming increasingly popular in new and renovated homes.
It is expensive to continuously update your roof. This is why you’ll want to choose a style and design that won’t age quickly and still fits your aesthetic.
To do this, you’ll want to go with a neutral colour pallet and a flatter profile. This will guarantee versatility, functionality and style!
Not only is this a timeless look, but flatter roofs also make it easier for solar panels to be installed. This could be a good move if you are considering solar power, and if you are still on the fence, make sure to check out our blog Should You Invest In Solar Power?
