A young person buying a home in 2021 doesn’t just want a place to live in — they want a sleek, modern, up-to-date living location. But while you might be familiar with the most popular musicians and films, what are the most popular custom home features of today? 

If you’ve found yourself asking this question, you’ve come to the right place. This article will walk you through the best home feature for you to look for in 2021. 

1. Space, Space, Space

Long considered dead, young millennials and older zoomers have revived the freedom, space, and warmth of an open floor plan. Many of today’s homes don’t contain the number of walls of their parent’s homes did. 

This may be due to the fact that young folks spend a lot of time on social media. They’re used to boundaries being broken down, and don’t mind hearing noise from other sides of the house — after all, they’re used to noise. 

If you’re looking for a house that feels contemporary and modern, get a place with an open floor plan, or consider knocking down some walls. 

2. Hardwood Floors

Nothing says contemporary life like hardwood floors. 

Contrary to what many people think, younger generations are into various rustic aesthetics. Clever concepts such as cottagecore have made it chic and in style to go for a look that’s more retro and country-esque. 

Hardwood floors are practical as well. They’re extremely easy to clean and last a long time. If you spill anything on a hardwood floor, all it takes is some wipes and a broom to fix the issue. 

Keep in mind that redoing a floor can cost you a good deal of money. If you really want hardwood floors, look for a home that already has them. 

3. Contemporary Kitchens

Many of today’s trends tend to focus on the kitchen. Buyers often want energy-efficient appliances; luxurious, open spaces; countertops of granite and quartz; pullout storage; a kitchen island; a walk-in kitchen; and stylish cabinets. 

It’s tough to say why this is, but it could be due to the increased aesthetic sensibility of contemporary generations. Older generations are more likely to look at the kitchen with a more pragmatic and philistine eye: here is where I prepare food, here is where I provide for my family, here is not a place that needs to look great. 

If you’re looking to remodel your kitchen, make sure you find someone you can trust. You want to make sure you get it right the first time and cook in the kitchen of your dreams. 

Make Your Custom Home the Perfect Home

Keep these three custom home features in mind when you’re buying and designing a home. Though you might not have been aware of them before, you’ll surely soon start to take notice of your peers embracing these styles. Embrace them yourself for a youthful, energetic home.
