As the way we live in our homes is changing there are many home trends in 2013 that will be directly shaped by a bit of that change. Trends in culture are showing people are changing jobs more often rather than being committed “company men” as has been the way of things for the last century; because of this homeowner’s needs and style preferences are directly influencing the types of things they are putting importance on in the home.
Here are just a few of the hot home trends for 2013:
Outdoor Living Spaces
This one is on FIRE! And hey, why not have a fire? Patio spaces with well designed decks, fire pits, and bar-be-que spaces with all the latest gadgets are all the rage. Courtyards are being customized with audio and video, turning what was just a space for holiday hangouts into places you will be spending more of your time in all year round.
Neutrals and Color Pops
Neutral main color themes seemed to have caught on, some say for affordability, but also because they make pops of color all the more vibrant. If you’ve not seen this style do a little googling or pop around pinterest to find out what it’s all about. Neutral doesn’t have to be drab or plain if you know how to work it!
Especially in the area of new home construction, there’s been a real influx of “green energy” builders – even here in our little valley! Not only is this trend great for the environment but it’s also great for the homeowner as these new technologies not only provide a savings on the month to month costs of owning your home but in many cases they can also lend to the longevity of your home as well.
These are just a few samples of what’s hot in homes right now! I love working with home buyers, especially one’s who have great ideas about what they want in their next home. Part of providing the best East Boise real estate services possible is knowing what’s going on in the market; that is one place in which I excel!
