Sustainable design

It comes as no surprise that sustainable design is one of the most popular home builders trends for 2024. With a growing awareness of environmental concerns and the need for energy conservation, sustainable and energy-efficient design has become increasingly popular. From design to material choice, home builders are looking to minimise their carbon footprint, reduce energy consumption and introduce renewable energy sources. Home builders are focussing on more eco-friendly materials and materials that are made locally to reduce the need for transportation. They also include energy-efficient appliances in their designs, along with renewable energy sources like solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling systems.

Open-plan living spaces

Open floor plans are another popular element in custom home builders’ designs. Homeowners are prioritising larger spaces that encourage flow through the home, maximising interaction between rooms. This includes open kitchens seamlessly connected to dining rooms and living areas designed to spill out onto the patio. 

In response to the popularity of working from home, there is a rise in dual-purpose spaces like home offices doubling as guest bedrooms or flexible living spaces. Custom home builders have adapted to the new way of living by designing homes with expansive living areas, which makes spaces feel bigger. Their designs promote seamless flow, with a focus on connection.

Outdoor living

Outdoor living spaces have become one of the most talked-about elements of custom home design in 2024. With people looking to spend more time outside, custom home builders’ designs have shifted to creating outdoor spaces designed for comfortable, extended outdoor experiences. Home builders are achieving this by including elements like outdoor kitchens, fire pits, covered seating areas, and eco-conscious landscaping – all of which promote outdoor relaxation and entertainment that can be enjoyed both day and night. As the popularity of time spent outdoors increases, custom home builders are relying on expansive patios, decks, and outdoor kitchens that seamlessly blend with indoor living spaces. These inclusions allow homeowners to cook, entertain and relax outdoors, without ever needing to go indoors. 

Wellness spaces

As health and wellness become more and more of a focus, the integration of wellness-focused design elements has become more popular in custom home builders’ designs. Homeowners are prioritising features that enhance physical and mental well-being, including spaces dedicated to exercise, meditation or rooms designed to calm overstimulation, and spa-like bathrooms featuring amenities like rainfall showers, ambient lighting and interior design that incorporates nature in various ways.

Minimalist design

With the pace of life speeding up, many home builders are opting for minimalist design. Clean lines, neutral colour palettes, and the use of natural light are all defining characteristics of this calming and timeless design style. Minimalist design inspires simplicity, and prioritises uncluttered living spaces.  

By building in more cupboard space and hide-away elements, you’ll be able to achieve the feeling of a more serene space. Minimalist custom home designs include simpler, less ornate decor and lighting, and sway towards amenities that can be closed behind a cupboard to maintain the clean, simple feel they aim to achieve.   

Customising and personalisation 

Building a custom home is the perfect opportunity for a home builder to bring their vision to life and create a home that truly represents their style and lifestyle. By choosing a building team that prioritises customisation, home builders are able to have a say on everything from the layout to the finishes, fixtures, and materials used in their design. Customisation will always come down to personal taste, but what many home builders rely on is creating a mood board on Pinterest, which will give them a guideline and reference to achieve the look and feel they want to create for their custom home.
