What New Rio Grande Valley Home Trends Will You Love In 2017?

A Touch of Texture – While the past several years in home design and décor often took on a seemingly sleek modern look, new home interiors are going to take on a warmer, more textured look in the year ahead that will provide more of an emotional connection to each room. Bentsen Palm Rio Grande Valley home builders design teams will help you decide on just the right elements from architectural focal points to floor and wall coverings that will help you provide the perfect balance of texture in your new home.

More Personalized Space – More and more home buyers are opting for homes that are sized more appropriately for their needs that also offer an optimal use of space that truly meets their lifestyle.  Whether that’s an open floorplan layout, home management systems, rooms that easily convert for multiple uses, or furnishings that offer flexibility, you’ll love how this trend will help you create more personalized spaces throughout your Bentsen Palm home.

Navy is the New White – The contemporary look of an all-white room is becoming a thing of the past.  New home designs will feature this cool blue color and other shades of indigo blues in countertops, furniture fabric and paint.   

Lower Maintenance Countertops – Granite or natural stone will certainly still be popular in the year ahead, but home buyers have more options with the current trends for butcher block, quartz and marble all offering lower maintenance options over the ever-popular granite.

Jewel Tones – The crowning glory this year will be deep, saturated natural jewel tone colors, including amethyst, emerald, ruby red, sapphire, that will be setting the stage on walls and fabrics in 2017.  Accompanying these rich colors will also be a prevalence of velvety textures used throughout the home in furniture, pillows, curtains, backboards and more.

Natural Wood Tiles – Combining the look of real wood with the durability of porcelain tile, this gorgeous new flooring creates a beautiful look that requires minimal maintenance compared to its counterpart, hardwood floors.  This trend is certainly going to see more airplay in 2017 and with the technology for creating these wood lookalikes creating more and more options, we’re likely to see these natural wood tiles well into the future.

Healthy, Energy Efficient Homes – A continued focus for the year ahead will be on building superior quality, energy efficient homes that not only improve the environmental impact of homes, but also incorporate more and more health and wellness benefits as well, including HVAC systems that offer improved air quality, water filtration systems, LED light fixtures to lower exposure to UV radiation, low VOC paints and carpets, and more.
