Home builders reveal the most frequently requested home features

Whether you’re in the market for a new home or are looking to make improvements, you’ll want to know what features are popular with home builders right now. That’s why we at DYM Builders are sharing the most common requests we receive from homeowners. From spacious kitchens to comfortable bedrooms, these are the features that everyone is asking for! So whether you’re just starting your home search or are thinking about renovating, keep these features in mind!

Increase in requests for smart home features

We’re increasingly using technology in our day-to-day lives, so it makes sense that we’d want these aspects in our homes as well. Homeowners are looking for features like programmable thermostats, home security systems, and hands-free fixtures. While these features may have been seen as luxuries in the past, they’re now becoming more of a necessity for many homeowners.

Growing trend of people wanting smaller homes

While some might see bigger as better, not everybody wants a huge home. Downsizing has actually become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among empty nesters and millennials. These smaller homes are easier to maintain and can actually end up saving you money in the long run. But just because they’re smaller doesn’t mean they’re any less stylish!

The use of color is becoming more important in home design

Whites and neutrals have been popular for years, but home designers are increasingly leaning more into the use of color.  This can be seen in everything from kitchen appliances to furniture and even paint colors. Homeowners are no longer afraid to incorporate color into their homes, and we’re seeing some really beautiful results!

People are requesting more open floor plans and natural light

One of the most common requests we receive is for homes with open floor plans and lots of natural light. These days, people want to be able to entertain and spend time with their families without feeling cramped. And who doesn’t love the feeling of sunshine streaming in through the windows? As we spend more time at home, it’s important that our rooms have high-quality air and lighting to keep us happy and healthy. 

Outdoor kitchens and living spaces are also in high demand

As the weather gets warmer, people are wanting to spend more time outside. Outdoor kitchens and living spaces are the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful weather while still being at home. These features also add value to your property, so they’re a great investment if you’re thinking about selling in the future. You can create a beautiful outdoor living space by adding a patio or deck. Outdoor kitchens are a scalable addition that can easily extend your living space into your backyard and create a perfect place to entertain!

People are also asking for more sustainable features, like solar panels and energy-efficient appliances

As we become more conscious of our impact on the environment, people are looking for ways to make their homes more sustainable. Solar panels are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your energy bills. Energy-efficient appliances are another popular choice for those who want to be more eco-friendly. These appliances use less water and energy, which can save you money and help the environment.

If you are in the market for a new home or are considering renovating your existing one, be sure to keep these features in mind. They are popular for a reason – they make our lives easier and more comfortable. And if you want to take advantage of any of these trends, DYM Builders is here to help. We can design and build the perfect home for you, tailored specifically to your needs and budget. Contact us today to get started!
