Spring 2020 New Home Design Trends

At HHHunt Homes, we are committed to helping our homebuyers build the home of their dreams. Part of that process is the design selection. Our team has decades of experience working with homebuyers and is continually researching new design trends and features. They will answer your questions and provide recommendations based on your personal preferences.

We sat down with Karen Shelly, Design Manager at our Design Gallery in Richmond, to discuss some of the latest trends for this Spring.   

What are some of this Spring’s “must-haves” for homebuyers?

As we are getting into the full swing of 2020, we are seeing the return of a more eclectic vibe. Buyers are paying much more attention to the usability of their home’s design and how they can put their own personal touches into each room to give it their own brand of flair. Colors are becoming the new neutrals in wall paint more than interior selections. We are seeing homebuyers bringing the outdoors into their homes with the return of warmer colors with saturated hues, jewel tones and more patterns than in recent years.

What are some of the popular features homebuyers are selecting for their kitchens?

Homebuyers are getting into quartz countertops, and we are seeing a pop in two-tone kitchens.  For cabinets, people are opting for lighter wood tones or even bolder choices like navy paired with white and mixed metals for fixtures to give contrast.

What are some of the popular features homebuyers are selecting for owner’s suite bathrooms?

The owner’s suite bathrooms are all about luxury partnered with functionality. Our customers want to feel like they are away at a spa just footsteps from their bedroom, but they don’t want to substitute the practicality of the room. The large spa showers with glass doors and tiles in bright, clean colors are a big hit combined with our technology spa package.

How is the design selection process working during the COVID-19 outbreak?

In a word, differently. Our top priority is and always has been the health and safety of both our employees and our customers.  What hasn’t changed is our commitment to guiding our homebuyers through the design process. We are utilizing various virtual tools such as FaceTime or Skype so that our customers can put their eyes on the selections within the gallery and speak face to face with our talented designers. HHHunt Homes also offers a state-of-the-art Design Studio Manager which provides online access to a library of options, pricing and photos that are specific to your home. Now you can start to personalize your selections at any time.
