2017 Design Trends and Features for Luxury Homes

What’s in for 2017 in the creative world of designing or renovating luxury homes—a vital interest for both sellers and buyers? The inman.com site had a talk with the twin brothers of HGTV’s Property Brothers about this and came up with 30 trends and features.

The first point the article makes is that high-end buyers this year are seeking the antithesis of standard, cookie-cutter looks and functionality. They want convenience, style and recreation built into their house.

HGTV personalities Jonathan and Drew Scott in the article talked about their ranch style house they built in Las Vegas, which has a designer kitchen, blended living space and mixed metal adornments, along with very smart home technology, and plenty of recreational year-round space built in.

Some of the items they point out for 2017 luxury homes are: single story outselling multistory homes; 5800 to 7000 square feet; 6-plus car garage; in the kitchen a full raft of the ultimate in commercial appliances; full on smart house automation including LED wall pads for adjusting lighting and temperature or voice activation; spacious walk-in closets; collapsible window walls; and much more.
