The homebuilding market in DFW is super hot, and with a new year comes new trends. Candy already mentioned the emergence of the skullery, but there’s more!
We’ve asked the best and brightest North Texas homebuilders to look into their crystal balls and make predictions about homebuilding trends for 2015. They’ve also given us some sublime photos that illustrate those trends in action in their own work. You won’t want to miss this—jump to read the whole story!
1. HOME AUTOMATION
Technology integration was the biggest trend mentioned by our builders, and it’s showing up across the board in home design requests.
“Everyone wants to control their house from their iPhone,” said Les Owens, President of LRO Residential. “There is a whole new wave of wifi-controlled door locks coming out, it will not be long until every new home has all exterior locks on wifi and controlled by phone, or interior home controls.”
Buyers want to be able to control from their phones the thermostat, lighting, pool equipment, security systems, surveillance cameras, appliances, garage doors, and more. The possibilities seem to be endless and our builders predict home automation will continue to be in demand with expanded capabilities.
“Integrating technology throughout the home is making modern life easier, like [building] charging stations, being able to control everything from one place, and while you’re on-the-go,” said Mark Danuser, President and Owner of Tatum Brown Custom Homes. “I’m personally excited about how smarter technology is going to evolve the home building, especially in regard to better energy efficiency and connectivity.”
