This year is something that we all would be more than happy to put behind us. And when it is the new year around the corner, it is again the time to feel the merry and joy of good and positive times.
These trying times have been hard in every sector, especially in the construction industry. Throughout the world, a lot of building projects have come to halt and many new were not even able to take off.
But the upcoming times are going to change that soon. Many houses and residential apartments and housing plans would be resuming soon. And with newer and researched studies, they would be made in a more ecologically sustainable way.
If you also have been one of those who have been planning to build your home this new year, then the following styles are something that you will find intriguing.
The Quintessential Industrial Touch
This style has been picking up its pace for a very long time. Popularised by movies, this architectural layout gives an urban feel. It is very asymmetric in the construction form and it uses a lot of different materials that create a great dimension.
Seasoned iron, wood, aluminum, and even recycled plastic, are most commonly seen to be used to create this look. Simple lines and the absence of surface elements also add to achieve this particular guise.
The concept of Smart Homes
Going automatic has become the new norm of our daily lives and this is something that is getting reflected in the construction of new homes too. To meet the rising demands, the emphasis is more now to create automatic homes that can be mobile or remote-controlled.
The temperature, lighting, security, etc. are a few of those concerns that are wanted to get handled by from being outside. It comes with a greater comfort level and also helps to reduce bills along with efficient consumption of utilities.
Changing the look with the roof
This is something that will see a major shift in the upcoming new year. Many of the people who wanted to go in for a different kind of a look for their house now want a drastically different appearance to their house. Since, the overflowing rain gutters are no joke in the rainy months, this is something that could be made better by altering the traditional roofing styles. It is not only important to provide protection against the environmental factors but is also to hold back the insulation right within.
A few of the most popular roofing options that will become more are Japanese Styled Roofs, Butterfly Style Roofs, the Bauhaus Look, or the evergreen and classic Slanting Roofs of varying angles.
The need to create more and more open spaces in new houses is more prevalent. The idea is not to be restricted to one room to perform a particular job anymore. People are wanting to have more creative and open spaces that could be used multipurpose. For instance, the living area of a house should not be only restricted to family time or for entertaining guests. If need be, it could also be easily transformable to include a makeshift studio or a child’s play area.
A Recreated Kitchen
A kitchen is one of the spaces of the entire house that gets the most amount of footfalls in. It is the place where a lot of food is cooked along with making some great memories. In the earlier constructions, the kitchen solely belongs to the woman of the household where she would be in cooking for her family almost the entire day.
But those routines have now long changed. Nowadays, it is the place which is frequented by the entire family to participate more in the process. But now, the desire is to use it as a dining space too. This is one of the reasons for which the fondness to have a breakfast bar, an island top and a proximity from countertop to dining table will continue to see a rising popularity.
