Whether you like contemporary, traditional or the transitional style that is a blend of each, it’s fun to explore your design preferences when buying a new construction home. When searching for a Prescott AZ home builder, consider ones that allow you to choose your own fixtures and finishes. A semi-custom builder such as Don Savage will let you get that custom look you desire without the higher price tag. Buying new construction means you won’t have to do any renovation or remodeling work in order to have a stylish home.
Adopting a new style
Even if you liked the highly ornamental Tuscan look in the past, you might decide it’s time for a change. According to a press release from the National Kitchen & Bath Association, design trends for kitchens are pointing toward the contemporary style. However, the transitional style is still No. 1. If you can incorporate the same design style throughout the entire home, it makes the home feel more unified.
Exploring kitchen options
The NKBA’s survey of designers revealed some of the features to look for in an on-trend kitchen: energy-saving appliances, water-saving faucets and stainless steel sinks. According to an article by Building Design and Construction, the most popular material for kitchen cabinets includes cherry and maple. Oak, pine and hickory are not as popular as the country and rustic styles begin to fade out. Granite counter-tops are the perfect choice for a contemporary or transitional style.
Shopping for furniture
If you are buying a new home in Prescott AZ for retirement, you may be bringing a lot of furniture, art work and décor items from your former home. Once they see the sleek and elegant look of their new home, some buyers feel inclined to buy new furnishings to match their new-found style. Consider giving your children your old furniture or having a yard sale. Your Prescott AZ home builder can tell you the exact dimensions of every room so you know what size furniture and art pieces to purchase. Ultimately, though, it’s all about what makes you feel happy.
