New Trends In Home Design for 2017

To stay up to date on current trends in the building industry, REALTY 828 attended the International Builders Show (IBS) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Orlando, FL on January 10-12. In the show’s past, automation of home living products was a small part of the show. They are now being perfected and taken to a new level with phone apps, touch technology and remote control.

The design industry is finally putting function before form to create a more user-friendly experience and efficiency in the way we live. Remote-control options for cabinets, windows and blinds; touch-tap operation for sinks, cabinets and toilets, and compact, modern European-style storage for kitchens and closets were all on display. NanaWall was just one of many companies offering customizable glass wall solutions for opening up flex spaces in homes to bring the outside in. Sleek lines, contemporary style, with low maintenance is on its way to be the standard of living. LED lighting has taken over. You will find the lights in all cabinets and backlighting everything from floors, ceilings, bathrooms, and closets.

With record numbers of new home construction in the works it is going to be an interesting year in real estate. This is going to be the year in Asheville that buyers purchase the $250K+ homes that are dated styles and remodel them into amazing contemporary living spaces with full rehabs .
