The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) holds a competition annually amongst builders throughout the nation called the “Best in America Living Awards.” These awards, while prestigious, are very telling of what we are going to see in the building industry in the upcoming years.
This years winners, sixty-five of them, were recognized at a gala dinner during the International Builders Show in Las Vegas. These winners were recognized for their forward-thinking approaches, and their leading edge home design trends.
Some of the top design trends included kitchen features such as marble, cooking hearths and light fixtures, which remained at the top of the priority list. Specialty rooms, such as outdoor cooking spaces and eating areas that extend your living area are finding their way into traditional floor plans.
