#TrendingWithTaber - Top New Home Design Trends for New Construction

September 16, 2020

When starting the journey of buying a new home, you have to make a lot of decisions. From choosing a community to selecting a floor plan and more, we know how much fun the decisions can be during this process—and that’s why Homes by Taber offers a customer focused home-building experience in the Oklahoma City area, allowing customers to find their styles and express it in their new homes. We believe the difference is in the details, so our team makes it a priority to stay up-to-date on new construction and design trends. In doing so, we take the pressure off of your shoulders when it comes to selecting interior and exterior finishes. Whether you have an exact aesthetic in mind or are looking for inspiration, we’ve compiled a lookbook of the top nine trends in new home design that can be personalized to meet the expectations you have for your home. 

This blog 1 of a two part series blog. Part one of this blog showcases trends 1-5. 

Contemporary & Natural 

New Construction Top Trend #1 - Contemporary interiors can sometimes be intimidating. You want what’s new and trendy right now, but you also don’t want your home to feel outdated in a few years. By incorporating natural, organic colors into a more contemporary scheme, you can strike the perfect balance. For example, many kitchens rely on the bright and white approach to suggest a modern look—but that’s not the only way to do it. Consider adding a distinct pop of color to your kitchen with blue cabinetry. Growing in popularity over the past few years, muted blue or navy cabinets provides the contemporary look you’re craving without looking overdone. When paired with white quartz countertops that resemble marble, hexagon natural stone tile backsplash and neutral wood tones in the flooring to add warmth, your space will be sure to impress today and years from now. 

Modern & Cozy 

New Construction Top Trend #2 - Many homeowners desire a house with a modern look on the inside. When done incorrectly, it can look sterile and uninviting. Here at Taber, we know that a modern aesthetic can be made more accessible with the right finishes. By leaning on the clean lines and geometric shapes that make modern interiors and exteriors so enticing, but also using warmer colors, you’ll have a home that feels cozy and appealing without being outdated. Natural wood tile flooring and dark gray cabinets will complement a few bright white accents and create a homey feel throughout your floor plan—and match beautifully with the exterior of your Proudly Overbuilt home.

Trendy & Bright  

New Construction Top Trend #3 - Looking for Instagram-worthy design? Look no further. We know exactly what your home needs to resemble what you see on HGTV and in your favorite home magazines. Two-tone kitchen cabinets are all the rage right now, and using gray allows for continuity with gray-hued wood look tile floors to carry the theme throughout the home. Funky, patterned tile for bathroom floors or backsplash provide the perfect opportunity to add your personal style to your home’s interiors. When your finishes are the focal point, you can rely on minimalistic furniture and accent pieces to pull everything together without feeling busy or go all in with your maximum style choices. 

Classic & Clean  

New Construction Top Trend #4 - Sometimes interiors are best left simple, classic and clean to serve as a backdrop canvas for your furniture and accents pieces. With neutral wood tones, simple patterns and clean lines, homeowners have the ability to really change the look and feel of their home as often as they want, without having to worry about it clashing with their finishes. If you’re someone who gets bored of their decor easily and constantly feels the need to mix things up, this might be the perfect solution. 

Warm & Traditional 

New Construction Top Trend #5 - If you’re looking for a little less trendy and a little more traditional, Taber can guide you through our selection of high-quality finishes that can be combined to create timeless interiors. Darker flooring, neutral granite countertops and muted accents colors create a warm space that can be perfectly paired with leather, velvet and other rich textures. Consider accentuating the white cabinets and stainless steel subway tile in the kitchen with white cabinets and white porcelain subway tile in the bathroom to brighten the look and keep it from feeling stuffy. 

Our in-house design team specializes in guiding you through the perfect selections for your taste. No matter where your personal style falls between trendy and traditional, Homes by Taber has the interior and exterior finishes and expertise to create exactly what you envision for your home.
