As you browse Pinterest or continue on your HGTV binge, you may still find yourself looking for the perfect design inspiration for your new custom home. Luckily, we’re here to help.

We have a knack for custom-building dream homes. In fact, it’s among our favorite projects to undertake! To give you some great style inspo, we’ve compiled a list of the five newest custom home trends you have to see.

Ready? Here they are:

Open Floor Plans

This one is practical and stylish! An open floor plan simply means that each room blends into one another. So, instead of walking through two separate doors to get from the foyer to the dining room and then the kitchen, you just flow effortlessly through your space.

This allows for an increased sense of household harmony and a more laid-back atmosphere for entertaining!

Walk-In Showers

Ooh, baby. If you’re custom-building your dream home, you’ve probably already had some ideas about what you’re going to do with your master bathroom. Why not make the most of your space by designing a spa-like retreat with all the bells and whistles?

Dual shower heads, glass doors, and ambient lighting are three ingenious ways to make this space your own!

Heated Entryway Floors

Sure, you’ve seen heated floors in a bathroom before, but what about your entryway? Imagine coming home in the colder Philadelphia months, kicking off your snow boots and being greeted with a toasty heated floor.

There’s no better way to welcome guests into your home!

Customized Outdoor Spaces

There’s no better way to spend a summer evening than with a backyard barbecue, watching the fireflies from your own patio, or just enjoying the sweet summer air with friends and loved ones.

We’ve seen a huge uptick in “outdoor living spaces,” which are outdoor areas like rooftops and patios that have been designed to accommodate gatherings, parties, and kick-backs! Think outdoor cooking spaces, firepits, and patio furniture.

Energy Efficient & Sustainable Features

You can have a beautiful home and show kindness to the environment at the same time! “Green” and energy-efficient home design plans are the way of the future.

Oftentimes, these practices aren’t even that high-tech! It all boils down to common-sense building: making sure you have proper insulation and eliminating gaps between windows or doors where cold (or warm) air can escape.
