Each year brings new themes and trends to light, but due to the unpredictable nature of 2020, this year’s fads on how we design and curate our homes are considerably different. With most of the world spending a seriously unexpected amount of time in their house, people’s tastes are leaning towards transforming their living space to one that accommodates their lifestyle better and incorporates more tranquility and joy. The good news is that with all of these emerging ideas, you can apply them to the design plans for your Asheville custom home, but you can also utilize them in spaces already built. We love the versatility of reimagining an existing space and think it’s a challenge worth approaching if you’re up to some creative exercising! There are several ways people are doing this and we’d like to share some wonderful ideas that people have found to embrace the changing landscape of life and cultivate a happier home.
Bringing in more nature: Whether you’re a plant lover and have spent the last year stocking up on succulents, or you’ve decided it’s time to put more effort into designing your property’s outdoor spaces, people are finding more peace by nurturing the green and growing in their lives. From living roofs to herbaceous room dividers, fern fences to indoor gardens, redesigning your home to focus on plant life has become a highly popular venture. If you’ve been interested in bringing plants into your space but aren’t feeling sure how to care for them properly, we always advise starting small with easy to care for greenery. One approachable way to begin is by incorporating flowers into your front yard landscape. These are generally easy to maintain and immediately make an impact on your home’s overall look.
Emphasizing natural light: This trend is on the rise and we certainly understand why. Many people we meet with who are searching for Asheville custom home builders are looking to create a living space with a dramatic focus on letting in the light. Allowing the early morning rays to wake you up and enjoying an afternoon sun bath while you read in the living room has real effects on one’s mental health. Beyond the pure enjoyment of sitting inside, enjoying the warm sun, this also helps to save on energy costs, which we like to prioritize at Brock Builders. Not only will you reach to turn on a light less, you won’t need to turn up the heat as much! Not to mention, sunlight increases your body’s serotonin levels, so it’s always a good investment to welcome it into your home!
Highly atmospheric bathrooms: Whether you’re looking for some home remodeling on your Hendersonville, NC property or you’re interested in building a custom home in Asheville, it’s a good idea to spend some time designing a breathtaking bathroom. Lots of people have been creating small oases here specifically attuned for relaxation in a time when stress and anxiety can be unpredictable. And in a time when going to the spa seems unsafe, putting energy into revitalizing the bathroom can go a long way toward bringing more tranquility into your daily routine. Want to add a calming water feature? Or remodel the shower or bathtub to enhance your cleansing experience? With so many options to customize this room, the sky is the limit.
Are you looking to incorporate any of these features into an Asheville custom home or remodel? We’ve got tons of ideas and suggestions for your new or existing structure and we’d be happy to work with you to develop your ideal living space.
