Trends in house design and construction are anticipated to change dramatically in the next ten years. We’ve seen some notable changes over the past decade. A mix of both new and traditional design elements are changing the look of homes across the country.
Home and Farmhouse Kitchen Remodeling In 2020, I was talking with a friend who works in the catering industry about the trends in kitchen remodeling. She said there is a great increase in new construction and future home building with contemporary kitchens. She also said that her industry is experiencing a boom in home improvement plans. I found this interesting and decided to ask around about it. I was surprised at the sheer number of responses and possibilities.
I wanted to find out what the average homeowner thinks is the next trend in the making and remodeling of their contemporary kitchen. Most kitchen remodeling projects involve putting a new sink, countertop, refrigerator, cabinets, or island. These are all great additions, but what are the next big additions for this century?
The most obvious change in the next decade in home and new home’s kitchen are more natural, organic, and/or sustainable materials. Natural materials will include kitchen appliances, cookware, appliances, counters, and so forth. Sustainable materials would include hampers, wood, and glass. What I found interesting is that none of these materials are just for the natural type kitchen.
My friend said that many new design trends take the natural and sustainable lifestyle into consideration for new designs. Some of the concepts for new design elements in kitchen design for the next decade include: natural kitchen designs, sustainable kitchen design, and new materials. Thistype of thinking is only beginning to take shape, and it won’t be long before we have an updated food supply in the new kitchen, and trends are shifting towards more sustainable choices for every family.
What I have found through my years as a designer, builder, contractor, and consumer advocates, is that anything new can affect our buying habits, as well as our dreams. For example, in the next decade, we will likely see the rise of more “full service” concepts. At this point, we’ll see more focus on general maintenance, and less emphasis on specialized attention.
So as you can see, trends in house design and construction are numerous and unpredictable. I do believe the market is ready for the next change in kitchen design, construction, and in furniture and accessories. Of course, it will depend on the product, and the consumer’s preferences, and also how the market continues to evolve.
