Each year, as technology progresses and lifestyles evolve, old trends are replaced with new ones. This process happens across all industries including architecture and design. But trends don’t appear from thin air – typically change comes from progressive industry leaders who are one step ahead of their competition.

Larger windows add beauty to a room by bringing the view of the outdoors in. However, large windows are not just for looks. They can also contribute to a passive home.

Gone are the days where every room had a door and four walls. Instead of traditional rooms, there are now implied spaces. These spaces connect to each other without obstructions creating minimalistic interior design. This concept can even be applied to multiple floors to create an enlarging effect of the home’s interior space.

Kitchens are getting bigger—what was once hidden away is now the epicenter of every home. The dining room has begun to fade as seating space is now being included as part of the kitchen. These spacious kitchens provide a central hub within your home for family to gather together in one appealing space.
