The Harcrest Homes team works diligently to remain informed on the hottest trends to continue building beautiful, structurally sound homes across the Gwinnett and Hall County regions.

Outdoor Living

If there is one thing homebuyers are demanding following the COVID-19 crisis, it’s outdoor living. The shocks of the 2020 pandemic changed the way the modern buyer views buying and building. Blending the indoors and outdoors, large window fixtures, porches, patios, gardens and outdoor pools began popping up on buyer wish lists.

Outdoor living spaces provide an easy way for the homebuyer to incorporate the outside within, making the home appear larger and providing a seamless flow between areas. These elements make it effortless to enjoy the changing seasons and make entertaining a breeze!

Classic Installations

While it’s easy to incorporate bright hues and eye-popping designs, homeowners have learned to gravitate towards timeless appointments that will still catch the eye decades down the road. 

Popular interior choices that exude elegance include tall windows, tray ceilings, white cabinetry, marble countertops and more. These trends have not only been popular design choices for decades but also provide a complimentary backdrop for any decorating style.

Bring on the Color!

Another thing homeowners, designers and builders learned after two years in isolation is that color is a fantastic way to breathe life and vibrance into any space. Noticing a shift in homebuyer preferences, the color of the year selections began to reflect vivid hues of blues, greens and purples to add the perfect pop of color for any space.

For fans of more muted tones, other popular colors of the year selections also reflect more earthy, grounded tones, such as sage greens, chocolate browns and deep grays. This is another fantastic way to incorporate a sense of nature into a communal space.

Single-Level Living

In the past, large homes with multiple stories and expansive floorplans were popular among homebuyers and custom builders. The rise of Millennials, seniors and active adults in the homebuying market has caused a shift towards single-level living in the place of sprawling constructions.

These new leaders in the buying market prove that quality trumps quantity, increasing the presence of multi-purpose spaces and more compact floorplans. These plans are also attractive to older buyers searching for less maintenance and families on the hunt for a home that will meet the needs of a growing and shrinking family through the years.

Flex Spaces

Multi-purpose spaces are the new buzzword in the homebuilding industry! After a home’s communal spaces turned into an office, school and relaxation area, it quickly became apparent that the contemporary home no longer meets the needs of the modern buyer. 

It is now essential for a home to include one or more flex spaces that can meet several familial needs. A playroom can quickly transform into a homework space or library, or a Zen studio can also act as a storage room or office.

Home Offices

After learning the joys of working from home during isolation, many workers realized the benefits of working remotely or incorporating a hybrid schedule. The only problem was that the average home did not contain a dedicated space for all work-from-home needs.

A designated space within the home for all your work needs promotes separation from the home’s more populated areas, privacy, productivity and peace. 

More Marble

In previous years, granite countertops dominated the home design scene. Marble countertops have remained a consistent, luxurious choice for homebuyers through the decades. They are fantastic ways to add a pristine look to any kitchen or bathroom. The elegant installation is ideal for any design and color theme and adds a little pizzazz to any space.

Perfect for any bathroom and kitchen, classic marble choices include Carrara, Calacatta, Statuary or Crema Marfil marble.
