Real Estate: Trends to Watch in 2015
The future of home design is looking more and more well-organized, compact and personalized. At Clairemont, we love our real estate clients, and we are well versed in master planned communities as well as the industry’s leading developers. Whether you are buying new or looking to spruce up your old home, here are a few tips from the team that we are watching as the hot trends for real estate in 2015.
Freestanding Tubs: Imagine the luxurious amenities of a spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home. Now, you can dip into your own freestanding tub after a long day at the office. Although they may evoke mental images of the Victorian age, the newest designs from companies like Kohler show modern twists to an age-old idea.
Heated Floors: Stepping out of a warm shower onto the cold tile bathroom floor is a thing of the past. Heat your bathroom floors and bask in the warmth and the comfort of your bathroom. Not only does radiant floor heating keep your feet warm, but it also ensures that the rest of your body will be toasty as well.
Open spaces: An open floor plan may feel like old news, but it’s proving to be a trend that is here to stay. Homeowners are knocking down barrier walls in their homes to offer larger spaces. Airy living rooms and open kitchens are all the rage for 2015.
Charging Stations: In this day and age, we are lost without our smart devices. With the size of our electronic devices shrinking and the huge explosion of Wi-Fi, the need for a separate home office is diminishing by the minute. Homeowners are seeking spaces for charging their devices conveniently all around their homes. The new trend: wall outlets that are catered to Apple chargers and Android devices alike. Change the way you think about sockets and outlets and have your home almost ready for the Jetsons.
Outdoor living: Private dog washing stations, outdoor showers and hot tubs are all trends exploding for 2015. Families are flocking to the idea of taking the living room outdoors and outfitting patios and porches by enhancing and utilizing the natural exterior space.
