Custom Home Inspiration: 5 Custom Building Trends for the New Year

Custom Building Trends for the New Year

The new year is underway, and at Riverview Custom Homes, that means it’s time to prepare for another year of new and exciting trends. As a custom home builder, our goal is to create inspired, luxurious designs that suit your unique lifestyle. We build wow by incorporating trends that reflect modern tastes, which is often a top priority for our clients.

If you’ve got your eye on a custom home this year, consider these five custom-building trends starting to make waves this year.

1. Flexible Kitchen Counters

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, and building a kitchen that’s flexible and movable can add functionality and style to this important space. Movable counters can be adjusted up or down to accommodate the need for more counter space while cooking, create additional dining space for guests, or transform the look and feel of your kitchen as desired.

2. Bigger, Brighter Spaces

For a luxury custom home with a modern feel, consider large glass doors and oversized windows that connect indoor spaces with your patio, swimming pool, or garden. This brings in more natural light while combining your indoor space with a more accessible outside, lending to a feeling of openness and luxury year-round.

3. Functional Office Space

Professionals choosing to work with a custom home builder often search for bigger and better work-from-home options. While some look to host clients in their homes for meetings and sales pitches, others simply want a comfortable space to catch up on work in the evenings or on weekends. Modern work-from-home spaces in your luxury custom home could include big, bright windows, flexible living space to host clients and visitors, and built-in storage space for files, books, or awards.

4. Home Entertainment

When it comes to entertainment options in your custom home, the sky is the limit. Whether you want a stylish wet bar with marble countertops and a water feature, a large home theatre to host screenings with your closest friends and family, or a full-sized gaming room, elaborate home entertainment is one of the top trends we’re seeing in custom home designs this year.

5. Nature-Inspired Swimming Pools

As a custom home builder, Riverview Custom Homes builds plenty of in-ground swimming pools for our clients each year, but this year, we’re seeing one trend in particular: swimming pools set against scenic greenery and rock gardens. These swimming pools are inspired by natural lakes, giving backyards a more serene, calm feel than a typical swimming pool.
