These 5 New Home Design Trends in 2017 Will Make You Go from Blah to Aha!

Are you renovating or building a new home and looking for some ideas to inspire you? Well, hold onto your hats because 2017 brings some spectacular home designs trends to the table. Whether you want a futuristic appliance or prefer old-school designs, this year’s trends can please almost anyone.

Let’s have a look, shall we?

1.     Voice-Activated Assistants

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you always have someone to talk to when you get home, even though there’s no one there?

That’s just one of the features of a voice-activated assistant.

This intelligent technology connects all the smart devices you have in your home, allowing you to control them by voice. It is constantly on standby, waiting for your greetings and your command (similar to Jarvis from Iron Man.)

You can ask the assistant to turn on your TV, turn up the lights, or even close your shade or change the temperature in your home.

2.     Kitchen Storage Walls

Minimalism showed us how nice it is to have simpler and cleaner visuals, and wide, open spaces. Now we like most of our things to be hidden behind closed doors and our rooms to serve multiple purposes, so you don’t feel like you are in a cluttered space.

The kitchen makes no exception. Nowadays, people prefer to replace their upper cabinets with whole walls that integrate everything from the electronics that crowded your countertops to big appliances, such as your oven or dishwasher. Everything that seemed out of place is now nicely tucked away. Soon you won’t be able to tell the difference between your dining room and kitchen.

3.     Counter-Depth Fridges

If you’re more old school and like to see your kitchen appliances separated, but still as part of an ordered, clean and symmetric visual, then we have some good news for you. An outstanding counter-depth fridge that respects the line of your kitchen furniture will make everyone think that you’ve custom-made it. To top it all, you save space too!

4.     Splurging on Laundry Rooms

Clean laundry gives you a happy, clean feeling. But does your laundry room offers you the same feeling?

Probably not.

People are beginning to see laundry rooms as important parts of their home. From top washing machines and dryers to wonderful looking storage spaces, the laundry room has turned into a combination between a kitchen, a bathroom, and a dressing room.

If you want to go even further, then you can opt for energy-efficient solutions that can dry your clothes without a dryer. Yes, such thing exists, and we have one!

5.     Outdoor-Feeling Indoor Showers

You love your view of the outdoors, and all the colorful vegetation.  But when you are showering,  you don’t want to look at dull shower stall walls, but at lovely blooming trees.

Add a big transom window or ventilating skylight to your shower, and you’ll have the perfect view of the outdoors.  Plus if you choose the skylight you can quickly release the moisture in your bathroom and prevent mold from growing in your home.

These are some great new home design trends to consider when building your new home. They may seem luxurious and expensive, but when you see how they impact your life, making it easier and more comfortable, you’ll be happy that you made the investment.
