Whether you are buying, building, completely renovating, or just updating your space, this list of 9 home design trends from our custom homes will give you the inspiration you need!

1. A Grand Entrance

People pass by it every day, so why not splurge on the most-seen space of your home—the foyer. Showcase your style right in the entryway. Add beautiful doors, sidelight windows, gorgeous lighting, a box-vault ceiling, or a unique rug to make a great first impression every time.

2. Black Windows

With dark finishes growing in popularity, windows are the newest to follow suit. Versatile dark interior window cladding enhances extraordinary windows, adds depth, and makes a statement. Whether your home has a farmhouse, Mediterranean, or modern style, select dark finishes to transform your space.

3. Blue Details

In home design trends this season, blue is the new black. Whether it’s navy, cobalt, or royal, the blue contrasts well against neutral colors. Add the pop of blue wherever you choose!

4. Shiplap


The relaxed and farm-inspired trend of shiplap is here to stay. As seen above, shiplap can be incorporated throughout different rooms in your home. The white design keeps a room light, clean, and versatile, yet displays a subtle texture. Add an accent wall, or shiplap the whole room!

5. Marble

Marble can be used in many different places besides just floors and counters. Add touches of marble in shades of white and gray for a luxurious hint of elegance, like a full-tiled wall or custom fireplace.

6. Distinct Tile

Intricate and interesting tile doubles as a backsplash and a focal point in kitchens, bathrooms, and bars. The mixtures of surfaces add visual balance to the overall design of the area. Use different patterns, shapes, and textures to ensure uniqueness in your home.

7. Rustic Walls

Do you love the rustic feel and texture of wood? Whether you opt for the original, or stain it to make it your own, adding elements of reclaimed wood can bring architectural interest to any room. Although not a new home design trend, it’s not going away anytime soon. Natural wood brings character and simplicity to a design. Install as much as you please!

8. Crisp, Clean, and White Kitchens

Light design elements help create a spacious atmosphere. Whether its modern or classic, white kitchens are trendy, yet timeless. Feature white cabinets, countertops, or backsplashes to transform your kitchen into an open, airy place to cook and eat.

9. Brass Finishes

Brass is making a comeback in 2017. With many different options and variations, this adaptable trend is easy to incorporate throughout your home. Accessorize any room with brass light fixtures, cabinet hardware, or faucets.
