Top 5 Trends

June 1, 2017

In the home improvement world trends come and go faster than you can say “HGTV”. At Marc Julien Homes we know the difficulty in choosing from a multitude of trends to incorporate into our luxury home builds. That is why we have complied five of the top trends that are the latest “must-have” items for buying, building and renovating today.

Reclaimed Wood

Remember the days of wood panel basements? We do (we still have nightmares about them!) thankfully wood has taken on a new life in the form of reclaimed barn wood, gym floors, shiplap, and the trusty old pallet. The uses for reclaimed wood are endless. From ceilings to kitchen islands and loggias to accent walls…wood is no longer limited to the floor.

Outdoor Living Areas

Transitioning seamlessly from the indoor living area to the outdoors is pivotal in new home construction and renovations today. Including a summer kitchen, covered patio and pocket doors are the perfect options to incorporate the entirety of the property.

Double Islands

With the kitchen being the focal point of any home, it is no wonder why homeowners are upping the functionality of the room. Bringing in a second island creates additional counter-space, storage, seating, and feeling of grandeur.

Intricate Staircases

With these staircases there is no doubt they are leading to heaven! Beaming with luxury and opulence these intricate works may incorporate iron, marble, custom tile work, and even illusions of floating making your stairway not just a thoroughfare but a permeant art piece in your home.
