Latest Design Trends in Prefab Construction

After getting financing and choosing a lot to build your home, then comes the fun part of actually designing your dream home. With Houzz offering you a multitude of choices, the design process can be overwhelming. We’ve compiled a list of the latest design trends that may help narrow down and shed some light on choices that can make your life easier.

From the exterior down to the type of countertops in your bathroom, our members see steady trends amongst their clients. These trends lean more toward making life easier.

While this year has seen the trend of monochromatic color palettes on the exterior of homes instead of the use of contrasting colors, new home owners are now leaning toward the use of mixed materials. Mixing stone, vinyl, wood and other types of sidings are becoming more popular and creating more curb appeal.

Home owners are also beginning to hide their garage and in the process creating a family entrance around the back of their home. This leads to an alternate layout that flips the home. Floorplans with garages being situated in the back of homes, more families are entering through a rear foyer. These mudrooms become more of a hub for shoes and other family property. This leaves the front foyer home clean and open for guests.

The more open floor plan is still widely used. Whether the home is 700 sf or 3,000 sf, home owners prefer a more open style with less walls and more space.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

MHBA members are seeing a trend toward open air showers. This design keeps the bathroom feeling open and airy. There is also a trend toward more upscale finishes such as hardwood flooring and designer trim in master suites. Many homes are featuring two master suites on two floors for home owners looking for longevity in their home. The second floor master will be used until owners can no longer use the stairs while the additional master will be used as a guest room.
