The interior design had a fascinating year in 2021. Today there are several new interior design trend ideas, including more conventional methods, fluting, and wallpaper. However, many of the fashionable styles in 2021 will fade away quickly.

Kitchens With Windows

The epidemic emphasized having distinct spaces, especially since many rooms must double as workspaces. As a result, large kitchens open to the entire house are becoming less popular.

The Interiors are Monochromatic and all White

It’s not just that the all-white style has outlived its usefulness; it’s also not the most intriguing option. Another issue with white furnishings is that they are challenging to keep clean, mainly white sofas.

Kitchen Hoods Made of Stainless Steel

Kitchen features hoods have been a must-have for high-end kitchens for years. However, as the harsh, industrial aesthetic fades in favor of softer aesthetics, this trend is fading out of popularity.

Design Faux

The faux decor has been popular for years, from wood tile flooring to marble porcelain. While these components are cost-effective, they are frequently put incorrectly and appear to be fake, as the custom builders say.

Gray’s Decade Of Success Is Coming To An End

White, brown, and gray have been popular neutral colors. Gray appears to be the color that fades the fastest.

Overused Design Words

For instance, the term “maximalist” has become overused and means little more than tossing everyone into the fire and hoping it works.

Stone Finishes With Backlighting

We don’t need to use artificial backlighting to bring out the beautiful natural stone. Allow the material to speak for itself.

Palettes of “Safe” Colors

I adore how vibrant colors, layers, textures, and luxurious textiles battle the formerly dominant white and lively color palettes. I’m ready for the lighter-colored trends to take a back seat for the time being.

“Modern Barn” Concept

The vaguely barn-like constructions with the all-white walls, black glass, bleach wide-oak floors, and abstraction greige carpeting influenced by the galaxies or jellyfish or other sea life in mauve-y, earthen color schemes are banal in both exterior and interior. They have the appearance of dismal medical imaging.

Dining and Bath Hardware in Black

As the clock hits midnight on New Year’s Eve, I’m ready to see the black kitchen and bath hardware go away. I’m well aware that this will very certainly result in my death. Black hardware will always feel trendy to me as a lover of vintage unlacquered brass, silver, and good-quality nickel.

Selecting the right home builder is a crucial decision during the home building process. Choosing wrongly can lead to various issues, such as unmet expectations, unplanned delays, and shoddy craftsmanship. If you are planning to have your dream home built newly, you might be wondering whether you should work with a local or national builder. A local builder is a person who focuses on creating houses in their local community. On the other hand, national home builders develop houses for the national community.  Both local and national builders deliver excellent results in their projects. However, they differ in several ways.  

1.    Customer Experience

Local and national builders serve their clients differently. On one hand, local builders offer personalized services. This means that they will focus more on your project and your needs. They will also communicate with you face-to-face and work with you through every step.

On the contrary, national builders offer generalized services. The large blueprint makes it difficult for them to offer more streamlined services and focus on individual customers.  

2.    Flexibility

Local and national builders offer different floor plans and finishes that homeowners can choose from. Local builders are flexible and can customize the plans to ensure that the new house matches the property owner’s needs. However, national builders often follow the specific blueprint that the customers selected.

3.    Knowledge of the Area and Local Home Trends

Local builders know the area the client is building because they are local community members.  They are also aware of the regulations, trends, and floor plans that relate to a particular area. This knowledge enables them to create homes that are up-to-date with these trends. On the contrary, national builders lack knowledge of specific towns and the latest trends and construction regulations in your area.

4.    Pricing

Local and national builders charge differently for their services. A custom builder is more affordable than an executive builder. Various factors, such as local material sourcing, contribute to this cost difference.

5.    Interaction with Local Economy

National builders are less likely to benefit the local economy because they deal with clients and businesses from different regions.  Some ship their construction materials from other countries.

Local builders are different because they collaborate with local subcontractors and suppliers. Working with them during the new home construction benefits the community economically.

In conclusion, understanding the differences between national and local builders will help you select the best builder for your dream home. Generally, local builders are better because they are flexible, pay attention to detail, and are affordable.  

Snowflakes are still falling, schools are closing due to the winter weather. Who’s had enough of it already?  It has become treacherous to get to and from work or anywhere else for that matter.   Some of you may be thinking, “Home renovation, now? Yeah right!”  Here are four reasons why, NOW, is the perfect time to start planning your 2019 home renovations.

  1. Late winter can be perfect time for new home construction or a remodel project.  Since supply and demand are a important factor, you can be more choosy in finding the best builder in your area. Builders are often more accessible late winter, therefore homeowners can benefit from the contractor’s increased flexibility.   It is a good idea to make the call to begin the planning of your home renovation project ten to twelve weeks in advance to give enough time to plan for scope of work and plan development.  Are you envisioning sipping your favorite drink in that beautiful new screen porch with an attached outdoor deck?  Allow your builder to begin drawing plans late winter,  so you can enjoy it during Minnesota’s three warmer seasons.
  2.  With contractor availability in mind, you may also profit from better deals on materials.   Spring price increases will naturally occur due to supply and demand.  Many showrooms offer deals at the end of winter to get rid of the previous season’s stock. Starting your project now could land you some good deals and save you money on the supplies you need for your project. As a result you’ll have extra cash for some fabulous furniture!
  3. Starting your new home construction or renovation project late winter also provides you the opportunity to have contractors look at other issues you may be having with your home.  You can have your contractor survey your property after this harsh winter.  Roofs, decks, windows, these are all things to consider when you are looking at home renovations.  Relying on a company like Tice-Hause Design Build to give their expert advice on what should be addressed now can save you time and money in the long run.
  4. Finally, with the holidays behind us, the New Year begun, and Spring cleaning approaching, now is the perfect time to start your new home construction or renovation project. Many homeowners find themselves putting  new builds or remodels off because summer schedules can get very busy. Whether its endless sporting activities, travel plans, or simply trying to take advantage of every ray of sunshine, summers can be an overwhelming time of year to try to renovate your home.  While you are home and hunkered down, now is the time to call Tice-Hause Design Build to get this years new home construction or renovation project underway.  They welcome projects any time of the year and off season is no exception.
