Timeless Custom Home Building
When it comes to custom home building, you want to ensure that not only all of your needs are met, but that you’ll have a home that is aesthetically pleasing. By incorporating timeless elements into your custom home, you can build a home that will your family for generations to come. With these timeless design trends, you can build the home of your dreams that is sure to stand the test of time.
#1 Durability and Sustainability
Of course, when it comes to building your own home, you want to make sure that it is built to last. Investing in durable materials like stone, solid wood, and brick will ensure that your home stands strong even in the harshest conditions. Investing in the durability of your home is sure to add piece of mind when unfavorable weather hits. Even if the durable materials are more expensive, it is sure to save you money in the long run. While that could mean that you build a smaller home, using durable materials will give you security and peace of mind knowing that your home will stand strong for the years to come.
While the idea of an eco-friendly home may seem to be a new trend, this is one theme that is sure to last. When building your own home, you have the opportunity to incorporate a variety of features that not only add to the sustainability of your home, but add to its overall value, as well. A fully self-sustaining, off-the-grid home may be a little bit too much to take on all at once, but you can still implement some self-sustaining factors. Consider investing in installing solar panels. This may seem costly at first, but these solar panels may, in turn, lower your electricity bill. You can also look into eco-friendly appliances, or recycled features like flooring for your new home. If you’re wanting to turn the entire project into a sustainable project, you can have your construction crew donate materials in good condition, or recycle materials that are no longer usable.
The best way to build a timeless home is to keep things simple. Clean lines and a simple layout will easily transition from year to year and trend to trend. You can implement this in every aspect of your home building. It is always easier to update your home with a new coat of paint than entire renovations. Simple designs are often easier to incorporate and can often be cheaper than the more ornate trends that may be in style right now. By using clean lines and a simple design, the backdrop of your home will always be a blank canvas and allow you to use trendy pieces as they flow in and out of favor, instead of making major renovations every few years.
Another way to keep it simple is to use neutral colors as your base. Neutrals will never be out of style and can easily transition with each season of life. With the base colors as neutrals, it is easy to incorporate trendy styles that you can easily transition out. A quick coat of paint to the front door, or a few colorful pops throughout the home will make your space feel modern and up to date without compromising the timeless design.
Keeping things simple, ultimately, embraces the “less is more” concept. The use of simple details and clean lines will save money in the long run since you won’t feel the need to constantly update your home and it will allow you to easily follow the trends of the times without having to update your entire home.
#3 Open Spaces
An open-concept floor plan offers functionality and versatility in your custom built home. With an open concept, you have the freedom to incorporate furniture and other details however you please. You can separate spaces with the use of furniture, or you can easily adjust things to flow with the openness of the home. With a flexible, open concept design, your home will keep the timeless feel in a functional space.
#4 Use Elements of the Past
When designing your custom built home, you may want to look the classic architecture of the past. The ancient Greeks and Romans implemented several details that can still be seen in modern architecture. The use of columns and arches can be seen in architectural designs throughout all of history. These two design features will never go out of style and can add an extra touch of sophistication and elegance to your home. Both of these features will also add to the durability of your home and will ensure that you are building a home that will last for the years to come.
