4 Athertyn .com Trust the trends or create your own! So many of our homeowners are thrilled with single-level living and the opportunity to fully customize their brand- new home using our full-service, on-site Design Center. We asked our design team what is in demand for home décor this year. Here’s what they told us: What are the popular color choices? White and gray walls are big now. Anything light and bright, too. What is trending for room layouts? Removing walls to enlarge the space and keeping floor plans as open as possible. Is there a specific upgrade that is drawing attention? People are asking to incorporate wine storage, whether it be in the kitchen, a closet, or the laundry room. They also want more customized storage space in general — such as additional closets or built-ins. What is more popular contemporary or traditional styles? Today we are seeing more contemporary rather than traditional, including the matte brass, honey brass and champagne brass finishes with lighter hardwood floors. Selections are returning to blondes or more rustic and natural looking floor selections. Quartz countertops are still hot.
