What is in store for the homes of the future? Only time will tell but here are a few ideas that we will be seeing in the very near future:
Homes may become smaller. A recent survey of home builders revealed they are building smaller homes. Today the average new home has topped out at approximately 2,400 square feet but builders say to expect new single-family homes to check in at an average of 2,150 square feet by about 2015.
There will no more formal rooms like living rooms and dining rooms. The same study said 52 percent of builders plan to build homes with larger great rooms or spaces that combine the family room, living room and kitchen.
Buyers and builders are also looking to go green. Expect to see more energy-efficient windows and compact fluorescent and LED lighting, as well as water-efficient appliances and plumbing in newer homes.
