Open, Open, Open

While this trend has been popular for a while, having an open floor plan is becoming more emphasized as almost every home buyer requests a home that is open. There are many advantages to open floor plans, including: 

  • Natural light
  • Larger feel
  • Better for entertaining
  • Allows your kitchen to be more central to entertaining

An open floor plan fosters togetherness, and in this day and age when families are pulled in so many directions and our attention is taken by our hundreds of “friends” online, an open floor plan makes it easier to have meaningful conversations with our loved ones and to share in each other’s lives, even if they are on a screen. An open floor plan also ensures you don’t run into walls or objects in the middle of the night, and it makes your home seem bigger.

An Extra Room

For years, if you had an extra room in your home, it was automatically turned into an extra bedroom for guests to stay. However, many people don’t have guests come and stay any more, so having an extra bed that sat unused for years did not make sense. Thus, in 2020, you can expect to see your luxury home builder, such as UrbanLUX Builders in San Antonio, incorporate more rooms in homes that are multi-purpose. For example, you may have a room that can be a kids’ playroom, keeping their toys contained and safely out of the way so you don’t trip on them. Or, you may have an extra room that is your office space for all of your paperwork, or from working from home. Also, your extra room could be turned into a workout space, which is becoming more popular as the internet has allowed online and/or virtual workout programs to be streamed and performed at home on demand.

Architectural Details

As we move into 2020, you will notice that the details in the home become more prominent. Thus, you may see more detailed trim work, outdoor details on the home, and more details in spaces you spend a lot of time, such as the kitchen and bathroom. From lighted vanity mirrors to ornate shutters, custom home builders in San Antonio are now using intricate details to make your home different from others and more personal. High ceilings are still in vogue and will continue to be as part of keeping with an open floor plan.

Different Shapes and Angles

When you build a custom home in San Antonio, you want it to be different than the house next to yours in some ways. While we mentioned being different in the architectural details, many home buyers are looking for something a bit more obvious, from the overall shape of their home to the angles of their roof. You can expect to see taller walls, flatter roofs, exotic home colors, unique additions, such as intricate chimneys and porches, and a unique front landscaping design that invites a double-take as you drive by. As much as we are all individuals, we crave to express that in our home’s exterior features as well.
