The new year is finally here and we are so excited to see what 2012 has to offer. Designing a custom home is a fantastic way to get 2012 off to a great start. If are already considering designing a new home in 2012, you are in luck. We came across some of the hottest elements and features set to be on the trend list for 2012. Design your home with style in mind and take a look at some of the trends you can expect to see in 2012:
- In-law suites: Adding an element of privacy to a custom home is becoming increasingly popular. More custom homes are being designed with in-law suites to give guests added privacy and comfort. Some custom homes even go so far as to create separate entrances for the in-law suites to create the maximum amount of privacy.
- Hearth rooms: Creating a room specifically for a fireplace is becoming a popular trend, especially in colder climates. Designing a hearth room in a custom home can create a warm and cozy ambiance in the home without much effort.
- Walls of windows: Using a wall dedicated to windows is becoming increasingly popular. This trend touches on sustainability by taking advantage of natural light while also creating a sleek and stylish feel. A wall of windows will also open an area that may not have felt as spacious without the windows.
