Home construction trends have been guided by requirements related to appearance, functionality and performance – here are the most important directions of development:
- Large, multifunctional spaces – open floor plans have been the trend for quite some time and are here to stay, too. Multifunctional rooms, such as open kitchens with easy to maintain Denver granite countertops that serve as dining rooms and living rooms as well make small apartments feel large and spacious. This open concept brings the entire family together.
- Green adoption – construction solutions that reduce the environmental impact of the building are also very popular nowadays and not only for new construction. Many homeowners today decide to remodel their homes to accommodate new technologies, such as the usage of renewable energy, to reduce both environmental impact and ownership costs.
- Increased interest in remodeling – more and more people prefer remodeling old buildings over purchasing new construction. Remodeling projects are usually cheaper and take shorter to complete than building a new home.
- Modular buildings – a trend that has been around for years and doesn’t seem to lose popularity. Modular buildings are created off-site, then they get disassembled, transported to the building site and assembled again. The process reduces construction time and the related costs, what’s more, the building can be disassembled any time in the future and transported to a new location, thus giving more mobility to the owner.
