What Are the Top Floorplan Trends For 2019?
Are you interested in buying a home in Southern California in 2019? If so, one of the top decisions that you will have to make before searching for a house is choosing the type of floorplan that you want in your home.
In this article, we will discuss some of the current floorplan trends that we’re seeing a demand for in the 2019 SoCal Real Estate market.
There’s no doubt that the SoCal Real Estate market has always been the leader in the United States when it comes to what’s happening in Real Estate because most real estate trends start here, and the same is true with floorplans.
One of the top requirements that we’ve seen homebuyers want in during 2019 is vaulted ceilings.
A vaulted ceiling is a ceiling that has a noticeable arch that’s between 8 to 12 feet high. With these types of ceilings, any home will feel bigger and more spacious inside.
There are a few different vaulted ceiling types to choose from including domed vaults, barrel vaults, rib vaults, and fan vaults.
Kitchens That Flow into Great Rooms
If you remember SoCal homes of the 1980s and 1990s, you will remember that most homes back then had distinct rooms for every purpose. There were bedrooms, bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, dining room, and family room.
These days most people don’t use their living rooms or dining rooms because they either spend the bulk of their time in the kitchen or family room.
Home builders have been capitalizing on this trend by building more homes with kitchens that flow into “great rooms”.
A great room is one room that combines several rooms into one space including the living room, dining area, study, and family room.
Home buyers these days like floorplans with kitchens that “flow” into the great room because whoever is working in the kitchen gets to feel like they are a “part of the action” by being able to see what’s happening in the great room.
These floorplan trends are hot in Southern California right now. We feel confident that they will be in demand across the rest of the United States in the coming months.
