Here are some of the latest Massachusetts custom home ideas for those who need a little inspiration for constructing a new home.
Efficient, Sustainable Custom Homes
Building an efficient and sustainable custom home is definitely becoming a priority. We see everything from solar power, stronger structures that withstand the worst weather, and water saving features to high-efficiency HVAC systems, water heating, high-efficiency windows, and energy saving systems.
With the way planet resources seem to be dwindling, environmentally friendly building materials are making their way into more and more newly constructed homes today.
Smart, Digital Home Systems For Custom Homes
There is enough technology today to tie all the home’s smart systems together. Building a custom home offers the perfect opportunity to start with an entirely integrated system as opposed to Massachusetts remodeling with a little added at a time.
The sprinkler system, heating and cooling system, lighting, security system, video surveillance, home entertainment system, and so much more can be tied together with WiFi control and monitoring. You even find WiFi dishwashers today that automatically orders detergent.
Home charging stations in several rooms and a more advanced electrical system to support them are becoming an integral part of new home construction today.
Custom Home Design Color Trends
The softer colors are a key focus in design for 2016 and 2017. In 2017 various shades of gray will be popular on interior walls, exterior siding, in fireplace stone, furnishings, and in bathrooms and kitchens. Think of relaxing hues that create a layered look which ties well together.
Accents in copper mixed with chrome and other such mixed metal designs are in style, as provided by your Massachusetts home builder.
Custom Homes With Open Spaces
Walls are being removed even more for a more open feel of homes. Often the kitchen, dining, and living areas are all open with many more windows installed. This helps families to gather and entertain friends. The light and airy feeling is enhanced due to more windows.
Custom Home Designs With Custom Storage
More storage is a must, but storage organizers are even better. Whether it’s targeted storage areas or just a kitchen cabinet, functionality and ease of use is in style. Drawer organizers, pull-out shelving, shelves that lower, super pantries, gift wrapping stations, and even pet washing stations are being designed into new homes today.
