This incredibly rare beef is one of the most restricted wagyu beef in the world, so it’s a huge deal that Holy Grail Steak Co. carries it.

The heavily marbled beef tastes incredibly buttery, thanks to the fact that Maezawa cows are fed beer, whiskey, tofu, honey and soybeans. Head over to Holy Grail Steak Co. now to choose from three cuts of Maezawa beef: tenderloin, New York striploin, and ribeye.

Coway Airmega icon

Coway

As Coway offers more and more air purifiers, they seem to get better and better. It started with the Coway Airmega 150, and the trend continues with the brand’s latest Airmega Icon.

This latest air purifier was designed in conjunction with fuseproject, a world-renowned design firm, which applied its design sensibilities to the Icon. The air purifier uses a touch screen, which sits above the air purifier, and with its real-time air quality indicator, you can easily tell how clean your air is with the color-coded display that lights up from the top of the device. (Perhaps the most interesting part of the device: that the touchscreen doubles as a wireless charger.)

When it comes to its actual air-purifying capabilities, the Icon has 649 square feet of coverage thanks to its three-stage filtering system. The brand records its clean air delivery ratings at 173 for smoke, 194 for dust and 235 for pollen. You don’t know what that means? No worries, because you can set the icon to smart mode and let it do all the work.

Material

Following a successful ceramic launch earlier this year, Material Kitchen is adding two new bowls to the range. The first is the Bap Bowl (bap is Korean for rice), which, as the name suggests, serves as the perfect container for rice. The second bowl is the slightly larger breakfast bowl, which fits just about anything. The new bowls are hand-launched by the Soil Baker brand, founded by Hye Rin Yang, who also shapes all of Material Kitchen’s other ceramics.

Burrow Vesper lounge chair

Terrier

If you buy one of Burrow’s new lounge chairs, called Vesper, you may never want to get up again. Burrow may have started making sofas, but every furniture launch since then has been a winner. The Vesper, which comes as a standalone chair or with a complementary ottoman, is an armless reclining chair, made with a molded plywood body (very mid-century modern like everything else Burrow does ). The chair, as the brand says, reclines in the perfect position to avoid putting too much pressure on any part of your body, and the ottoman follows suit so your knees don’t bend too much. The chair comes in one box and assembles literally in no time.

Lunar Hard Seltzer Heritage Line: Sunset Edition

lunar hard seltzer heritage line sunset edition

Lunar

Lunar makes some of the best hard seltzers (sorry, White Claw, Truly and the rest). The brand takes common Asian flavors and infuses them into hard seltzer, with its quirky lineup including flavors like yuzu and lychee. As part of AAPI Heritage Month, the brand’s founders – Sean Ro and Kevin Wong – are revisiting their Heritage line, in which Lunar develops exclusive flavors crafted in collaboration with iconic New York Asian restaurants.

This time, Lunar worked with Jeju Noodle Bar, a Michelin-starred restaurant; Win Son, James Beard Award finalist; and Bonnie’s, currently one of New York’s hottest new restaurants. For Jeju, Lunar developed Mint Omija, which Lunar calls “a summer version of traditional Korean omija-cha (schisandra berry tea) using a hint of fresh mint”; for Win Son, there is the Teresa Tang (named after a Taiwanese singer and known as the queen of Asian pop), which is a mixture of cranberry juice, cucumbers and spices; and for Bonnie’s, there’s Salted Kumquat, which brings that sweet and salty flavor of salty kumquats in the form of a hard seltzer.

6 home design and construction trends to watch in 2022 https://adt-bains.com/6-home-design-and-construction-trends-to-watch-in-2022/ Mon, 16 May 2022 11:02:31 +0000 https://adt-bains.com/6-home-design-and-construction-trends-to-watch-in-2022/ Looking to make improvements to your home in 2022?

Looking to make improvements to your home in 2022? The start of the new year is the perfect time to evaluate ways to improve your living space.

This year, Terra View predicts that homeowners will strive to make their homes more livable, sustainable and comfortable.

Whether it’s extending outdoor living or finding new opportunities to reduce energy demands, or putting more emphasis on dedicated workspaces designed to spend more than a few hours at home times, 2022 trends address a variety of ways to build “future-proof” homes.

Below, Terra View shares 6 home design and construction trends you can expect to see this year.

1. Sustainability and creating a smarter home

Now more than ever, homeowners are embracing values ​​of sustainability. According to a recent study by the National Association of Realtors of Canada, more than half of its members said their clients were interested in sustainability. This drive to achieve high energy standards will continue to influence building and purchasing decisions in 2022.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also forced many of us to reconsider the way we live. As returning to full-time work remains flexible, many consumers have explored new ways to optimize their living spaces through technological additions. For example, switching to energy efficient light bulbs. It’s one of the easiest ways to save energy and lower your electric bills. Smart thermostats also offer a variety of features that will not only keep your home comfortable, but can also help reduce heating and cooling costs.

Terra View homes are proudly recognized for their leadership in sustainability and thoughtful home design. By incorporating sustainable and eco-friendly features into every home, they are able to reduce both their impact on the environment and the carbon footprint of their owners.

2. Space for mind and body

In addition to seeking flexibility in a floor plan and dedicated home office space, homeowners are looking for “retreat” spaces to relax, exercise, and do more of the things they love. Whether your chosen home model offers an extra bedroom, basement, or extra room, flexible space is key. Functionality, practicality and aesthetics are equally important!

A great example is Terra View’s Avonlea home design which encapsulates many of these key features, with its wide open floor plan and soaring entry. This particular model is available in three elevations with a multitude of layout options.

3. Net zero advances for housing

Net Zero Ready homes are an irreversible market trend – they are homes of the future and are currently being built in accordance with Ontario’s 2030 Building Code. In addition to being 80% more energy efficient , Net Zero homes are more durable, comfortable and healthier than standard homes.

The main difference between Net Zero and Net Zero Ready homes is that Net Zero homes already have solar panels or other renewable energy systems installed. Whereas with a Net Zero Ready you can choose when you are ready to move to a fully Net Zero home.

The most powerful trend today is the movement toward Net Zero and Net Zero Ready homes – and Terra View prides itself on building Net Zero Ready homes and complying with strict green building codes and accreditations. If you want to learn more, check out their blog, “Net Zero and Net Zero Ready: What’s the Difference?”

4. Biophilic Design

Terra View Personalized welcome

Nature moves inside.

More and more homeowners are embracing biophilic design principles, which are a way to connect people to nature by bringing outdoor elements indoors. This can be achieved through the use of more local organic materials in interiors and by maximizing sunlight, fresh air, plants and other natural elements in the home.

A key part of biophilic design includes the geographic location of your home. In 2022, the transition to living in areas surrounded by distinctive geographic and ecological features is expected to continue as homeowners embrace outdoor living spaces and natural elements. The Hart Village and NiMa Trails communities of Terra View are located near conservation lands and surrounding natural areas because surrounding yourself with what you enjoy is most important.

5. Outdoor luxury

Terra View Personalized welcome

The living space of a house is no longer limited to the confines of its interior. Recently, owners have been rushing to spruce up their outdoor spaces and make them an extension of their homes. With the majority of us spending more time at home, many homeowners have begun to improve their outdoor environment for year-round enjoyment.

Terra View Homes floor plans offer a wide variety of exterior design options, to help you bring your exterior vision to life! Take a virtual tour and explore some of their floor plans here.

6. Multifunctional spaces

Single-use spaces seem to be a thing of the past. Versatile pieces have become a necessity as we spend more time at home looking for creative ways to divide our space. Thinking about your space as a whole will help you create a continuous, cohesive design. Bonus rooms have become very popular and can be used as a media room, home office, gym or additional play area.

It may be worth considering investing in items that complement each other, even if they perform different functions. This will make the transition from work to dining to leisure in one room feel seamless. Terra View homes are designed with this concept in mind, allowing homeowners to intertwine their living spaces to best suit their needs.

For many of us, our home reflects who we are and the lifestyle we hope to live. Terra View homes offer the versatility and thoughtful design required in an ever-changing world. In 2022, how do you see yourself living in ever-changing conditions? What items do you want in your home to live the lifestyle you hope for?

Spring Home Design: When “before” turns into “after” with all the comforts of home https://adt-bains.com/spring-home-design-when-before-turns-into-after-with-all-the-comforts-of-home/ Fri, 06 May 2022 14:00:00 +0000 https://adt-bains.com/spring-home-design-when-before-turns-into-after-with-all-the-comforts-of-home/ By Deputy Editor of Pacific NW Magazine WE HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED in a constantly changing and inconsistent state of “before and after” for some time now. “Before” occasionally reminds us of alluring and familiar feelings – a solid foundation, a nostalgic touchstone, a feeling of knowledge, comfort and security.

WE HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED in a constantly changing and inconsistent state of “before and after” for some time now. “Before” occasionally reminds us of alluring and familiar feelings – a solid foundation, a nostalgic touchstone, a feeling of knowledge, comfort and security. Homeport.

Meanwhile, the elusive and ever-fuzzy concept of “after” teases us — and motivates us — to move on. With hope. With the promise of a resolution. And certainty. Oh please: just a tiny slice of certainty.

Well, hallelujah: we found four. Four brilliantly remodeled/updated/restored Seattle area homes with captivating “before” stories and inspiring “after” results, absolute and clear as a happy day.

These dramatic renewals – a light and bright kitchen update in a historic West Seattle home, a second floor addition/whole house redo in Exposition Heights, the ultra-sensitive historic restoration of an architectural treasure on the Queen Anne and an officially pioneering sustainable renovation on Bainbridge Island – not only improved and transformed four structures, but also the lives of the people inside.

Even through our tentative, still technically pandemic present:

  • In this West Seattle kitchen, a beautiful custom island became an oasis, says Brandon, who along with his wife, Jill, “ordered and enjoyed great cocktails. We sit there, and we’re like, “Well, we can’t go out to a bar, so I guess our new bar is just sitting there.” ” “
  • At Exposition Heights, a new space (and new spaces) has created a fabulous and functional room (and rooms) for work, play and family. So much family friendliness. “I can’t even imagine being in the original house with the kids and the dog, especially the first two months when the kids were home all the time,” says Lily, whose parents also live with her and her husband, James (in their own newly refreshed ADU).
  • On Queen Anne, it took Adelaide Blair and husband Darin McAdams ‘a while’ to adjust to working from home in such a newly opened layout, but there’s also another happy and adaptable ‘after’ here too. “I wear a lot of headphones,” she says. “I’m introverted and like to spend all day alone, and now there’s a person in the house who talks all day. I still love him. Our marriage is good; I swear!”
  • And on Bainbridge, deep relationships — with the land, the home, and the life-affirming nature all around — forged on the supremely green path to full Living Building Challenge certification helped sustain Todd Vogel and Karen Hust (and the planet itself). “It’s not so much the fact that the house is zero electricity and water that makes us feel healthier or safer,” says Hust. “It’s really the connection to place that allows for a sense of groundedness, health and balance that is a mainstay during a difficult time. It’s a foundation that allows you to live with chaotic circumstances in the world, knowing that you have a place to come home to that is regenerative for your well-being, as well as for the place it is built upon.

Ah. There is this blessed certainty: rooted in connection and in our own relationship to our own sense of belonging. Perhaps it is how we cling and ride on whatever our “after” has in store for us.

Spring Home Design: Loom House on Bainbridge Island weaves design and sustainability into a one-of-a-kind tapestry of connections https://adt-bains.com/spring-home-design-loom-house-on-bainbridge-island-weaves-design-and-sustainability-into-a-one-of-a-kind-tapestry-of-connections/ Fri, 06 May 2022 14:00:00 +0000 https://adt-bains.com/spring-home-design-loom-house-on-bainbridge-island-weaves-design-and-sustainability-into-a-one-of-a-kind-tapestry-of-connections/ WE WILL NOT dwell long on the “front” of this story.

WE WILL NOT dwell long on the “front” of this story. We could – this 1968 Bainbridge Island beauty has stood solidly for half a century as a classic paragon of design, craftsmanship and the Pacific Northwest itself – but that’s the ‘after’ that weaves inspiring threads of connection, comfort, nature, sustainability and residence in a harmonious home like no other on the planet.

Officially.

This incomparable “after” is called Loom House, the first renovated house everywhere to achieve full Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification, which means it has met seven extremely rigorous fundamental standards – “petals” – of sustainability: place, energy, water, health and happiness, materials, equity and beauty. (Heron Hall, also on Bainbridge — clearly an island of cutting-edge building and living — is also LBC certified, but it was built from the ground up.)

Equally significantly, only Loom House is inhabited by Karen Hust and Todd Vogel, who purchased this “beloved and manicured, but not updated” home (originally designed by North West Architect Hal Moldstad), planning to conscientiously renovate it for energy-efficiency – and in the happy consequence, they set a stratospheric standard of green living that enriched their daily existence and could (should) inspire a global renovation revolution. .

“When we knew we were going to do a renovation, we wanted it to be as green as possible. But we didn’t know what was possible,” says Hust. “We realized there were a lot of standards, and we thought, ‘Well, standards are cool, because if you come across one, people will hear about it and things will hopefully get passed on. And then we heard about the LBC… and although it sounded like a tough bar, we thought, “It will be such a useful and effective tool if we go there.” We were excited from the start.“

It was huge. (But their surprisingly groundbreaking home isn’t: 3,200 square feet split between a south-facing main house and a north-facing guest and office space, connected by a stunning expansive outdoor deck.)

“My number one secret to a successful Living Building is owner engagement. That’s it,” says architect Chris Hellstern, director of LBC services at the Miller Hull Partnership (the company behind Seattle’s LBC-certified Bullitt Center). “I think this project was certified because the owners were really invested. I don’t know if you could go through this process with people who had been “talked to”. ”

As Hust and Vogel eagerly deepened their understanding of LBC and their connection to the house and the essential nature that surrounds it (while documenting the historic project and the depth of their engagement on their awesome blog), Hellstern and the team who came together to make it happen – Clark Construction Inc., interior designer Charlie Hellstern (who is married to Chris), Anne James Landscape Architecture, and a good handful of engineers and consultants – came together put to work cultivating petals.

The original structure (all wood, no Sheetrock) “showed good and bad manners,” says Justin Ansley of Clark Construction – high-quality wood, handcrafted craftsmanship, general architectural “bones”: good . Oddly small rooms, asbestos stains, an overabundance of bunk beds but no real entrance: not that much. “It was a real challenge to figure out how to fill in and create a watertight, modern and energy-efficient building, but because of that, the superstructure is still there, and that’s a big part of the look that everyone love so much.”

When those not-so-loved dividing walls came down, Vogel recalled, Ansley pulled out a piece of wood and said, “This is first growth. I couldn’t buy such a strong piece of wood. And then he would turn around and find a place to use it in the wall. First, it’s great for reuse, and second, it helps us understand what’s going on behind the walls and gives us a connection to the love and care people put into building this place.

In itself, building by renovating, rather than razing and rebuilding, is like gardening with starter plants instead of seeds: you get a good head start towards something beautifully green. “There’s obviously an embodied carbon advantage to that, and both Todd and Karen took advantage of that,” says Chris Hellstern. “We certainly find that when we reuse materials, we don’t have to make new plastic products. Also fewer chemicals of concern. So overall, from a materials perspective and reducing global warming, it can be really good for the environment.

As Loom House blossomed into a showcase of regenerative design – with new insulation; perfectly adapted ventilation, lighting and air conditioning; triple glazed windows; an underground cistern that captures enough water for year-round self-sufficiency; a new carport for charging electric vehicles; Red list of chemical-free furniture, furnishings and building materials; 16 kWh of photovoltaic panels; a backup battery system rather than a generator of peace disturbances; life-affirming nature all around – the benefits have multiplied. Even beyond all the awards and accolades Loom House has won.

Financially and environmentally, Hust and Vogel are happy to collect checks from the electric company at the end of the year. “It’s great to feel like we’re able to harvest enough energy to be part of the community, but not necessarily take in more than we need,” says Hust. (Vogel reports that his biggest utility bill is for his cell phone.)

Spiritually and ecologically, Hust says, “The proportions of the space and the beautiful furnishings certainly help reduce stress levels. There are spaces that work for us, and the systems work so well that it becomes a subconscious pleasure to be here. Vogel adds: “Environmentally, we’re really comfortable, in terms of air temperature and that sort of thing. But also, we have a connection to nature with our home, and we’ve already seen that there’s a place to explore here, and getting out into that space and doing that exploration in itself reduces stress.

Always, everything comes back to nature. And this harmonious house. And its own crucial “after” effects.

“It kind of hit us that we were moving here to be near our niece,” Vogel says. “And what sense did it make to move here to be near our niece and build a house in a way that set her future on fire?”

How the pandemic has changed the design of new homes | Seattle Times https://adt-bains.com/how-the-pandemic-has-changed-the-design-of-new-homes-seattle-times/ Tue, 03 May 2022 13:05:00 +0000 https://adt-bains.com/how-the-pandemic-has-changed-the-design-of-new-homes-seattle-times/ The pandemic has changed what people need and want in a home, and builders and architects are responding with new, more adaptable floor plans.

The pandemic has changed what people need and want in a home, and builders and architects are responding with new, more adaptable floor plans. From more outdoor space to increased flexibility indoors, the design of the house is evolving to meet the demands of the moment.

Here are some building trends influenced by how we’ve lived for the past two years.

Buyers want more space

The biggest change is the footprint of new homes. “Buyers want more square footage,” says Rose Quint, assistant vice president for survey research at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Quint says the average size of newly built homes tends to be cyclical. It had been on a downward trend since its last peak at around 2,700 square feet in 2015. In 2020, it has come back up. After dropping to around 2,450 square feet, the size of new homes is increasing again and averaged 2,561 square feet in the first quarter of 2022.

New importance in entries

The desire for more space isn’t the only home design trend that has emerged since the pandemic, according to Donald Ruthoff, director of Dahlin Group Architecture in California. “People want their home to be a safe space that’s more functional than it used to be,” Ruthoff says.

This increased functionality starts at the front door: the pandemic has led to an upsurge in the popularity of foyers and vestibules at the main entrance.

The owners were looking for a way to separate delivery people and other temporary visitors from the main living space, and a separate space at the main entrance was the answer. In fact, says Ruhroff, vestibules first became popular architectural features during the Spanish flu pandemic a century ago.

Secondary entrances, such as a backdoor mudroom more often used by the family, also received a makeover. In particular, the so-called drop zone where shoes, coats and bags are often dumped had to transform in response to owners’ demands.

“We see this space growing because it needs to do more,” Ruthoff said. “People want to come into the house and be able to wash their hands and drop their work clothes, especially if they’re a frontline worker.”

Flexibility is king

Further inside the home, people have also sought to optimize the existing space.

“We’re really talking about design change in terms of not making the house bigger, but looking at every square inch of the house and making sure it’s functioning optimally,” says Ruthoff.

From glass doors that create office space from a corner of the living room to furniture solutions that help spaces work better, innovative solutions of all kinds have garnered increased interest in recent years.

“Our president talks about Swiss army knife cuisine,” Ruthoff offers as an example. “Kitchens don’t necessarily have to be bigger, but they have to do more. These are more detailed kitchen cabinets that have more efficient storage.

Open Floor Plans Live On

Even though people need their space to do more, the open floor plan remains popular with homeowners and buyers.

Quint says that in a recent NAHB survey, about 34% of remodelers said they were working on projects to make floor plans more open. Only 2% said they had a job that created more secluded spaces.

Ruthoff agrees. “The open floor plan isn’t going away,” he says. “But we’re creating opportunities for adjacent spaces that are connected, but not fully connected.”

One futuristic solution that is just beginning to attract attention, he says, is moveable walls. “We are seeing the advent of flexible wall systems that will allow walling in or changing the floor plan,” he says. “It’s still got a few years left in its true application, but I think it’s coming.”

Architects and builders are also more concerned with creating spaces at the right scale. “Some of the spaces we were creating around 2010 were too big,” says Ruthoff. “We sometimes call it swirling space, just space for space’s sake. But it comes down to: you can’t sit very far from the television before it becomes uncomfortable.

Indoor/outdoor living emphasized

Homeowners have begun to place a higher value on outdoor living spaces during the pandemic. Patios, decks and porches have been popular additions in recent years, Quint says.

Ruthoff says more and more people now want outdoor spaces that feel like a natural extension of their indoor rooms. This includes using complementary materials inside and out and creating unobstructed sight lines to the outside.

“It’s the idea of ​​making sure people feel connected in a holistic way that contributes to physical well-being and well-being,” he says. “The amount of natural light you get in the house is important for keeping people healthy.”

WASHINGTON DC — Health and wellness issues continue to top the list of residential design trends resulting from the impact of COVID-19, while sustainability has shifted from “wellness” to a “must-have” for designers and consumers alike.

These are the key findings of the American Society of Interior Designers’ 2022 Trends Report, a three-part analysis of key trends, economic indicators and changes shaping the interior design profession.

According to the report, interior designers, like others in the residential design industry, are “at a pivotal moment in history,” witnessing technological shifts, major demographic developments, and societal shifts and changes. attitudes.

“Designers will be called upon (on) to serve and offer guidance as the industry moves away from COVID-19 and into a new era,” ASID said.

According to ASID, wellness is currently a top priority, with owners increasingly looking for designs and products that will promote good health and an overall sense of well-being.

“Customers are turning to simpler, cleaner and more easily maintained designs, as well as outdoor living spaces and places where they can relax and refresh themselves from the increased stresses of everyday life,” said the Washington, DC-based association, noting Workplace Wellness is also “a must for employees and businesses.”

“Wellness features and healthy design will become nearly ubiquitous in luxury properties and workplaces, with an increasing focus not just on wellness but on improving human health,” said association.

ASID also noted a concerted trend towards smart home technology, with products such as lighting systems, carbon monoxide detectors and digital thermostats gaining popularity as they become simpler. use.

“Most homes now have at least one or two smart objects, and it is expected that by 2023 more than half will have three or more,” ASID said.

The future of office design is also changing, according to the ASID report.

“Emerging trends include giving employees more freedom and flexibility to design their own spaces, creating experience-based environments with more sensory input, returning the private office, and providing more of spaces that support teamwork and interactive activities,” the association observed.

ALLISON PARK, Pa. (AP) — Should Thailand’s hanging stay on the living room wall where it’s lived since I was born? Should we set up the family room as it was when I was 8, when I was 17 or in a brand new layout? Should we leave my mother’s spice rack on the north kitchen wall? And the spices?

When you live in a home passed down from generation to generation, profound design opportunities lurk around every corner. There are plenty of opportunities to mix past and present. And the weight of history can rise and knock you down at the most unexpected times.

It goes without saying that the pandemic has changed the way we all live our lives a lot. The ability (and in some cases the need) to go to work and school from home, coupled with restrictions on what we could do in public, meant our homes had to do more for us than ever before. As homeowners have reprioritized their spaces, builders and architects have had to change the way homes are designed.

New home buyers want more space

The biggest change is the footprint of new homes. “Buyers want more square footage,” says Rose Quint, assistant vice president for survey research at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Quint explains that the average size of newly built homes tends to be cyclical. It had been on a downward trend since its last peak at around 2,700 square feet in 2015. In 2020, however, that trend began to reverse. After dropping to around 2,450 square feet, the size of new homes is increasing again and averaged 2,561 square feet in the first quarter of 2022.

Architects are giving new importance to entrances

The desire for more space isn’t the only home design trend that has emerged since the pandemic, according to Donald Ruthoff, director of Dahlin Group Architecture in California. “People want their home to be a safe space that’s more functional than it used to be,” Ruthoff says.

This increased functionality starts at the front door: the pandemic has led to an upsurge in the popularity of foyers and vestibules at the main entrance.

The owners were looking for a way to separate delivery people and other temporary visitors from the main living space, and a separate space at the main entrance was the answer. In fact, says Ruhroff, vestibules first became popular architectural features during the Spanish flu pandemic a century ago.

Secondary entrances, such as a backdoor mudroom more often used by the family, also received a makeover. In particular, the so-called drop zone where shoes, coats and bags are often dumped had to transform in response to owners’ demands.

“We see this space growing because it needs to do more,” Ruthoff said. “People want to come into the house and be able to wash their hands and drop their work clothes, especially if they’re a frontline worker.”

Flexibility is now an interior design trend

Further inside the home, people have also sought to optimize the existing space.

“We’re really talking about design change in terms of not making the house bigger, but looking at every square inch of the house and making sure it’s functioning optimally,” says Ruthoff.

From glass doors that create office space from a corner of the living room to furniture solutions that help spaces work better, innovative solutions of all kinds have garnered increased interest in recent years.

“Our president talks about Swiss army knife cuisine,” Ruthoff offers as an example. “Kitchens don’t necessarily have to be bigger, but they have to do more. These are more detailed kitchen cabinets that have more efficient storage.

Has the pandemic killed the open floor plan in new homes?

Even though people need their space to do more, the open floor plan remains popular with homeowners and buyers.

Quint says that in a recent NAHB survey, about 34% of remodelers said they were working on projects to make floor plans more open. Only 2% said they had a job that created more secluded spaces.

Ruthoff agrees. “The open floor plan isn’t going away,” he says. “But we’re creating opportunities for adjacent spaces that are connected, but not fully connected.”

A futuristic solution that is just beginning to attract attention, he adds, are moveable walls. “We are seeing the advent of flexible wall systems that will allow walling in or changing the floor plan,” he says. “It’s still got a few years left in its true application, but I think it’s coming.”

Architects and builders are also more concerned with creating spaces at the right scale. “Some of the spaces we were creating around 2010 were too big,” says Ruthoff. “We sometimes call it swirling space, just space for space’s sake. But it comes down to: you can’t sit very far from the television before it becomes uncomfortable.

New Homes Emphasize Indoor-Outdoor Living

Homeowners have also begun to place a higher value on outdoor living spaces during the pandemic. Patios, decks and porches have been popular additions in recent years, according to Quint.

Ruthoff says more and more people now want outdoor spaces that feel like a natural extension of their indoor rooms. This includes using complementary materials inside and out and creating unobstructed sight lines to the outside.

“It’s the idea of ​​making sure people feel holistically connected, which contributes to physical well-being and well-being,” he says. “The amount of natural light you get in the house is important for keeping people healthy.”

At the end of the line

The pandemic has changed what people need and want in a home, and builders and architects are responding with new, more adaptable floor plans. From more outdoor space to increased flexibility indoors, the design of the house is evolving to meet the demands of the moment.
