Top 5 New Home Trends


The modern home is always changing and evolving.  Check out these home trends as seen at the 2016 Street of Dreams!

TECH-LESS LIVING ROOMS 
Although modern homes are certainly filled with the latest home and energy efficient technologies, more families are opting to keep living rooms unplugged for a more peaceful environment. Instead of a television looming above the fireplace, the focal point of room becomes the fireplace.  

 

FORMAL DINING ROOMS & BUILT-IN KITCHEN SEATING
For homeowners who love to entertain, keeping a formal dining space is preferable to turning it into an office or media room. Family dinners are coming back with beautiful built-in seating options for today's modern kitchen.






NICHE APPLIANCES
High tech microwaves with convection cooking, steam ovens, which promise to cook food more thoroughly, and warming drawers are popular kitchen additions. Other kitchen trends include mismatched cabinets, mixed tiles, deep kitchen drawers, lighted countertops, and marble accents.




BOLD ACCENT WALLS 
From grass walls to wood slabs, bold accent walls are showing up everywhere. Although accents walls are nothing new, the myriad of options for textures, custom graphics and prints, and new types of wallpaper make for some unique design choices.






STATEMENT MIRRORS IN BATHROOMS 
Beautiful mirrors can make the bathroom. From large wood-framed marvels to unique ornate shapes, different home styles determine the designer's mirror choices. You can even choose a high-tech mirror with television!
