Home Design and Building in 2024 and Beyond.

Looking ahead into 2024 and beyond, the home building industry is poised to continue its trajectory of growth and innovation. With advancements in technology, materials, and design, new homes will be built to meet the needs and preferences of modern families. From small, energy-efficient homes to larger, luxurious estates, there is something for everyone in the new home market. In this article, we will explore the latest trends in new home building and what they mean for homeowners.

Building a Home That is the Right Size for Your Needs.

There is still demand for larger, more spacious homes, especially among families with children. These homes often have more bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as dedicated spaces for entertaining and recreation. While these homes can be more expensive to build and maintain, they offer the kind of space and luxury that many homeowners desire, with room to grow as needed. 


One trend that has been gaining momentum in recent years is the move towards smaller, more efficient homes. Many homeowners are looking for homes that are easier to maintain, more affordable, and with considerations for the environment. In response, home builders are designing homes that are more compact and functional, with a focus on quality over quantity. These smaller homes often have open floor plans, fewer rooms, and clever storage solutions to maximize space. Additionally, these homes are often designed to be energy-efficient, with features like solar panels and smart home technology to help reduce energy costs.


In fact, at Hendren Custom Homes, we have seen an increase in customers wanting ranch-style homes.

Another reason for building a smaller home is to help create a customized and comfortable living space for elderly parents who may have special accessibility needs. We have seen an increased request for modern ranch-style homes, which typically are rectangular, U, or L-shaped. They tend to have a devoted patio or deck space and large windows, and they often feature a finished basement and attached garage. While they may be smaller in square footage, they still maintain a strong resale value and are designed with intention.


Design Details That Stand the Test of Time.

Another trend in new home building is the focus on unique and custom design details. Many homeowners are looking for homes that reflect their personal style and taste, and home builders are responding by offering more customization options. From choosing the color of the walls to selecting the type of flooring, homeowners are able to tailor their homes to their exact specifications. Additionally, many new homes feature modern design elements like open floor plans, clean lines, and natural materials like wood and stone.


The modern farm style that has been popular in the last few years is fading out, and we are seeing a more traditional style replace the rustic look. From more linear trim details to tile and flooring selections, traditional design is bold, clean, and timeless, keeping your home feeling upscale for years to come.

Re-Imagined Room Layout.


In terms of room layout, a few trends are emerging in the new home market. One is the focus on the kitchen as the heart of the home. Many new homes feature large, open kitchens that flow seamlessly into other living spaces, like the dining room and living room. These kitchens often have large islands, high-end appliances, and plenty of storage space. Additionally, many homeowners are looking for homes with outdoor living spaces, like patios and decks, that can be used for entertaining and relaxation.

Another trend in room layout is the incorporation of multi-use spaces. With more people working from home and participating in virtual learning, homeowners are looking for spaces that can serve multiple functions. For example, a home office might also be used as a guest bedroom, or a playroom might also be used as a home gym.

Home Trim and Finishes.

When it comes to home trim and finishes, there are several trends that are gaining popularity in the new home market. Materials like wood and stone for flooring, countertops, and accent walls add warmth and texture to a home, and they are often seen as more sustainable and environmentally friendly.


Using tile and wood in new and innovative ways creates unique and visually stunning spaces. One trend in tile design is the use of large-format tiles, which can be used to create a seamless and cohesive look. These tiles can be used on floors, walls, and even ceilings, and they can come in a variety of finishes and colors.

Another trend is the use of patterned tiles, which can add visual interest and texture to a space. These tiles can be used to create a feature wall, a backsplash, or even a statement floor.


Tile with matte finishes instead of shiny or glossy finishes can give a home a more modern and sophisticated look, and they are also easier to maintain.

In terms of wood, designers are exploring new finishes and textures, such as wire-brushed and distressed finishes, which can add a rustic or vintage feel to a space. Additionally, designers are incorporating wood in unexpected ways, such as using wood panels to create a feature wall or using wood slats as a room divider.
