Sneak Peek! The Latest Homerama Trends

One of the best parts of Homearama® is seeing all the latest home trends (then returning home with your own design ideas flowing). Though we still have another week before Homearama Lifestyle Edition opens, you can get a sneak peek at the latest Homearama trends right now. 

Our goal at this year’s Homearama is to make the process of envisioning your next home or finding inspiration from our builders to be pleasurable and fulfilling. As easy as it is to fall in love with the natural beauty and charm of Union Village, we want our showgoers to remember their journey to realizing a custom home to be a remarkable life experience. 

Living Outside

With this year’s show taking place at Union Village, a place that celebrates front porch living, it’s no surprise that one of the biggest Homearama trends this year is exciting outdoor living spaces. Every home finds a way to celebrate the outdoors, and you’ll find every type of porch imaginable: front, back and side porches; covered, wraparound and screened porches; and even second-story porches. Some porches even overlook beautiful courtyard areas. These homes’ devotion to the outdoors adds a whole new meaning to the phrase “pull up a chair and sit for a spell.”  Most importantly, the front porch living brings families together back outside and the “neighborhood” feeling of long ago is returning here at Union Village, and showgoers will love it!

Big, Open Spaces

It’ll be hard to miss the stunning 10-foot ceilings in this year’s show homes! Expect to see high ceilings that add to the open concept floor plans, optimizing spaces to be as big and uncluttered as possible. Open floor plans make socializing with your family and guests easier than ever. You’ll love spending time in these connected spaces, many of which are grounded by cozy fireplaces. 

Bright and White Details

If this year’s homes feel especially bright, you can credit it to the white details found inside and out. Spot this trend in every room—from cabinets to countertops, furniture to tiles, even window trims and exteriors. Expect to see white in a variety of textures, all creating eye-catching details that make a space feel brighter and cleaner. 

Trendy Tiling

With the return of maximalism comes the renewed popularity of fun patterns and details, and one of the Homearama trends that best shows that is stylish tile work. Kitchen backsplashes, bathroom walls, floors and even fireplaces mix and match patterns in unforgettable tile details. Tiling is an easy and affordable way to make a space pop: Don’t be surprised if you get home and immediately want to redo your kitchen backsplash.

Masters on the Main

Homearama Lifestyle Editions is all about homes that reflect modern lifestyles, and a great example of that is placing master suites on the main level, which several of this year’s homes have done.First-floor bed and bath combos allow residents to age-in-place as these master suites are much more accessible than the typical second-story master. It’s also a Homearama trend that makes the master an even more private and secluded space.
