look and feel of homes are transforming towards more open-plan, flexible designs and construction.
Homes that are not necessarily in the large, luxury categories are still renovating towards all bedrooms being en suite, even if it means a small shower and toilet area. The trend is demonstrating smaller size properties are being optimized for multi-functionality and deep immersion into smart devices.
Small Structure, Easy Maintenance
Project managers have noticed a similar request for most of the commercial and residential properties they are helping to be developed: Interiors must be perfectly designed to include compact storage for furniture that can be extended out when required; multi-functionality being prioritized (dining room tables that slide out from behind entertainment centers, etc.); voice-activated smart devices integrated everywhere.
Clients are demanding that floors be designed so that automatic vacuum cleaners can have clear access to every part of the flooring. So, no stairs, steps, or elevations that will inhibit a robot cleaner from doing its job. Floor estimating software has been one of the first innovations to adapt to this latest development.
Construction is seeing a massive shift towards the use of lightweight, yet strong structures for many types of residential buildings. Insulated and prefabricated walls are growing in popularity among homeowners who appreciate the reduced weight and labor costs. Alternative power supplies such as hybrid generators and solar panels coupled with climate control features are rapidly becoming standard in many areas. The most requested installation in the vast majority of homes is a fast and effective domestic bandwidth.
Other smart home devices that will become standard in the next few years includesecurity cameras, light bulbs, thermostats, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, hubs and plugs. Hence the necessity for the fast, adequate bandwidth.
Residences Of The Future
The feel and appearance of homes will start to become more ecological and less pretentious. Natural and eco-friendly materials in their raw state will be favored about all other interior finishes. Manufacturers will respond to this demand by creating more materials made of renewable resources such as bamboo and pinewoods.
The look and appearance of the homes will become one of understated and simple elegance. Increasingly, residents will desire a wholly integrated look flowing from the interior of the house, through to the exterior. It must be one with its surrounding environment, and not impose itself onto it.
There is a definite shift happening from an imposing mansion standing out proudly on its erf. Smaller, more stylish homes that are distinctly second place to the trees and landscape around it will be the favored designs in the future.
Landscapes will conform to the preferred tastes as well. Pathways that cut through the garden foliage as veins of concrete are no longer in vogue. Meandering walks paved with chipped wood or pebbles are set to be the standout garden features in the future.
