P&D Builders LTD. has been in the new home construction business for over 50 years! As a company, we have seen many trends come and go. Trends evolve with time and it is our job to keep up to date with what homebuyers want. A few current trends going on now are as follows:

Geometric Tile

This is a simple solution that will make a big impact. You have to choose the flooring in your new kitchen, so if you go with tile. This is something to greatly consider. Geometric patterns with bold and contrasting color schemes are huge right now. Whether you want to go with a simple black and white, or something more complex, it will add character to your space that is sure to catch the eye of your guests.

Nooks and Built-Ins 

Old homes in the area are known for their nooks and built-ins. Thanks to this new trend in home construction, we are seeing them appear more frequently now. New home construction clients are spending more time incorporating built-in storage benches, window seats and bookshelves into their spaces. This will greatly benefit the resale value of your home making it timeless and highly functional.

Oversize Islands

The formal dining room MIGHT start to fade away in the upcoming years. The space is starting to be replaced by in-home offices or more functional rooms. In order to do without the formal dining rooms, the kitchen needs to be the main place for family meals. The oversized islands are accommodating all the family needs such as dining, homework and entertainment. These larger islands can also hold many of the common kitchen items such as an extra sink, more counter space, a microwave and more.

In-home Offices

The modern workforce is quickly transitioning to the remote work environment. Which has resulted in an increased number of home offices being requested. We are shying away from home offices being an old spare bedroom, instead we are seeing offices incorporated in the original design of the home with built-in bookshelves. If you are looking to build an in-home office, make sure you are thinking about how and when you work. If the office is located in a prime position in the home, this would be great for someone who enjoys noise and is good at multitasking. If you need privacy, one of the upstairs corners of the home might be better. Also consider permanent shelving and how big of a desk you are going to need.
