Design Trends of 2012


Taken in the great room of a recently completed Lawson built home, the photo above shows a beautiful open space looking out glass doors. Looking back at 2012 we have noticed a few new design trends in the homes we built, such as wide open spaces like in the photo above. Homes are also being built to minimize hallways with rooms coming off of the main social area. We have also seen more luxury bathrooms with spa tubs and more kitchen islands. 

We were excited to see that Builder Magazine had noted some of the same trends we saw and a few more. Check them out below.
