When you are designing a new custom home along with your home designer, you would be tempted to go for trendy styles and patterns. Your friends, relatives or even your designer would also coerce you to go for trendy designs. But, it is a good idea to stay away from such trends as much as possible only because those trends turn out to be fads more often than not. Most of these trendy styles don’t stand the test of time. On the other hand, you should incorporate more of the classic finishes and styles into your home design. That is why you should interview the designer and the builder before hiring them just to make sure that their aesthetic sensibilities are more in touch with your expectations.
If you still want to bring in the latest trends and styles into the design of your new custom home, you can have a hybrid approach. You can mix and match classic and modern trendy styles. A good experienced custom home designer can help you achieve the balance and design the home the way you want.
