Top 3 Predicted Custom Home Design Trends for 2012
Builder Online magazine has announced that Schumacher Homes has released its list of the top ten custom home design trends the company predicts for 2012. Paul Schumacher, CEO of Schumacher Homes, says “We expect that the trends … will be our biggest requests in 2012, as well as the growing trend toward more casual, family-focused living.”
Schumacher said that the list of trends were predicted based on some of the most popular design features buyers were asking for in 2011. Take a look at the top three trends that were the most requested:
The In-Law Suite
As we mentioned in a previous post, there has been a surge in combining multiple generations under one roof. The addition of a private in-law suite with separate entrances and bathrooms allow privacy.
The Dual Suite
Also great for a multigenerational household, the dual suite allows privacy away from the communal living space.
The Hearth Room
This room is a popular architectural option for the winter months, or you can simply chose an alcove for a fireplace.
