    When it comes to home design, true style never dates. That’s not to say there isn’t a place for trends. If you want to win business and keep those clients of yours happy, you need to stay on top of what’s trending in home design. Don’t spend your whole day scouring the internet for what’s hot and what’s not, we’ve compiled everything you need to know about home building trends for you.

     

    Without further ado, here’s what we’re going to be seeing a lot of in 2019.

     

    Sunrooms Are Back In  

    We’re seeing more and more modern Australian’s embrace the sunroom. Not only do sunrooms add a gorgeous light filled room to the house, they are versatile. From home office, to playroom to a sanctuary when guests pop in, they are an added bonus to any home design.

    Open Plan Living Areas Are Here To Stay

    This isn’t news but we’re seeing the trend cemented in 2019. Homeowners value an open plan living area above all else. Plans which seamlessly incorporate the typical flow of the modern Australian lifestyle will be chosen again and again. Think of the living, dining, kitchen and even the outdoor area as one large functional and stylish playground.

    Purposeful Space

    As land sizes are getting smaller and smaller with each generation, Australians are now thinking strategically about their space. We’re seeing a trend towards embracing the minimalist movement. Rather than grand rooms and large unused spaces, go for dual-function rooms which work with the owner to encompass all of their needs.

     

    For example, a sitting room might now double as a home office or playroom for the kids. 1 bathroom may be swapped out for a powder room and laundry instead. The home office may be incorporated into a ‘nook’ rather than taking up a whole bedroom.

    Eco Friendly Homes Are In High Demand

    Australians are serious about reducing their carbon footprint. We’ve banned disposable plastic bags, we’re purchasing mindfully and we’re recycling more and more. Homes should be designed with lifestyle elements to mirror their owners. As such, eco friendly homes are being requested more often than not.

     

    Think of insulation to keep the homes cool in summer and warm in winter to save the excess use of electricity. Solar panels and water tanks are almost a must these days. Also look at the materials you are using. Are they sustainable? Can you use recycled materials rather than new to create the same look? Being on the front foot of this will serve you well in 2019.
