We love talking the latest trends in new home construction, especially small town living new home construction! Check out the latest hot trends we’re seeing all over Central Indiana. Here’s nine of our favorites.

  • Heated Floors: From bathrooms to entries and mudrooms, heated floors are popular for keeping bare feet toasty and helping melt snow and dry boots in colder months.
  • Statement Mirrors in Bathrooms: So long, medicine cabinets. Hello, statement mirrors. Think large wood-framed beauties, backlit modern marvels and ornate vintage gems that boost style in a bathroom.
  • Surprising Backsplash and Countertop Pairings: You could play it safe with white subway tile and granite countertops, but sometimes safe is so boring. Instead, consider a different combination, such as a brick backsplash with concrete countertops (as shown here) or yellow ceramic tile with butcher block.
  • Sunrooms: A sunroom is a top dream space for many homeowners. Even those who don’t have the luxury of having — or adding — one are finding ways to carve out a special sun-drenched corner in their homes.
  • Attention-Seeking Bedrooms: A can of paint will certainly transform the look and feel of a bedroom, but to take the sanctuary to the next level, you’re going to need bolder ideas. Here, a rustic wood wall and ceiling feature warms up the otherwise contemporary room.
  • Fireplaces and Fire Features: New advances mean you can have all the ambience without the smell, pollution or hassle of traditional wood-burning fireplaces. Plus, fireplaces are making a comeback as living room focal points in lieu of the dark void of a TV screen.
  • Farmhouse Entryways: Stripping away the need for fancy flourishes or decor for decor’s sake, farmhouse style gets at the root of function. That’s why the style makes sense for mudrooms, where simplicity in storage and durability in materials are paramount.
  • Niche Appliances: Looking for a little added luxury in the kitchen? Steam ovens promise to cook food more thoroughly and healthily than microwaves; warming drawers give cooks a little wiggle room to deliver hot meals to family and guests; and induction cooktops save space and are safer for homes with young kids.
  • Deep Kitchen Drawers: Data shows that ease of storage is the top kitchen priority. And while deep drawers have been creeping up to replace lower kitchen cabinets for a while now, they’re only getting better — and more affordable. Dividers and inserts let you organize any shape or size of dish, pan or utensil under the sun, and there are even clever options for deep corner drawers, and drawers under range tops and kitchen sinks.
