Give Your Mom The Gift Of A Custom Designed Dream Home This Mother’s Day

According to this article by The Telegraph magazine, surveys have shown that women are the key decision makers in the home. Decisions about design from the conceptual to the end stages of home building will require the input/approval of the leading lady in your life. Here are some of 2018’s top luxurious home design trends your Mom might love:

Single story/open concept

Open concept has become quite popular in modern residential design. An open-concept floor plan makes your living space feel bigger and less cluttered than it actually is. It also provides the opportunity for your living spaces to overlap. It is most common to see an open layout between the living or family room and kitchen. It offers ease and convenience for today’s busy lifestyle. Sight lines are kept open, making entertaining more enjoyable as well as making watching young children playing or doing homework whilst preparing meals in the kitchen easier.

Mid-century & modern style
The use of organic, clean lines and integrating with nature has made large windows, open concept, and bringing the outdoors in popular again.  This luxury home design trend is particularly popular for a woman/ person always on-the-go and connected 24/7. It’s simplicity eliminates physical clutter which in turn helps to reduce mental clutter. This type of design is characterized by:

  • Large windows /door walls bringing the outside in from many angles
  • An open floor plan between living and dining areas
  • Clean lines, soft curves, and minimal detailing
  • Natural fibers, woods, and a blending of textures.

Dressing rooms
Homes these days are starting to prioritize style over function. A popular feature in the 18th century, dressing rooms are certainly emerging as a luxurious home design. Dressing rooms can simply be described as an amped up walk-in closet. This space, dedicated to shoes, clothes and accessories allows for practical indulgence. It’s easy for Mom to move from bedroom to bathroom to begin her day with a touch of privacy. This room is also an opportunity to play around with diffused lighting. Overhead lighting is necessary, but backlit shelves, glamorous chandeliers and space lamps can add an even more unique touch.

Smart Technology

Smart technology is no longer limited to our phones. Luxury homes are becoming smarter with heating and cooling, electronics, appliances, lighting, etc. controlled by an app. It has become a norm for high-tech security systems and smart appliances to be accessible from your handheld device/ electronic device.

Spa-like bathrooms
Larger bathrooms with spa-like features have become quite the rage. Large soaker tubs are the perfect way to relax when modern life gets tough. Or opt for a large shower with frameless glass doors, and a separate toilet area to create a relaxing oasis right in your own home.
