Latest Design Trends in the Houston Real Estate Market

2013 is ‘the’ year for the real estate market in Houston. You should already be aware of this; it has been all over the newspapers ever since this year started. But do you know about the latest design trends that are also being followed since then?

If you want to become a homeowner in Houston, be sure that your chosen house has all the latest trends from this year. Many experts believe that some of these trends are not just going to be seen in 2013, but will also be observable a few years from now. You do not want to be left out of the race to urbanization, right? So take a look.

Reducing the Size

Quality homes do not always imply a bigger size. True, mansions covering acres of land are often out of this world, but smaller homes can be just as classy and exclusive provided they have been designed attractively. And this is actually a better option. Know why? Your home will not take up that much land, and so you will have to pay a lower price, while enjoying the quality of a sophisticated modernized unit in a lesser space.

As such, all of the new homes that have been constructed in Houston this year are based on this one idea that even small can be beautiful.

Outdoor Living

Outdoor patios and kitchens have become popular in the real estate industry. Want to give a more edgy look to your exterior? Adorn it with furniture so that it looks like it is part of the interior house. This is what every home builder has been doing in 2013.

Many people have also chosen to separate the indoors and outdoors with glass doors. Pull them open and the inside and outside will merge together, giving you quite a large space.

Pet Customizations

Adore your pet? You are not the only home owner who does. The good thing is that real estate architects are also aware of this. Now most of the houses in Houston feature provisions for your pet as well. In some cases, you may see a bathing facility constructed for your pet in the laundry room. In another house, you may come across a compartment in one of the cabinets where your pet’s food bowl can be stored.
