Trending Home Architecture

February 14, 2022

Much like clothing and hairstyles, what’s popular in-home architecture changes with the times. Modern home trends are inspired by a relaxed, lived-in aesthetic with a focus on comfort and function — after all, with more people working/schooling from home, we’re spending a lot of time in our domiciles. Looking to make a change? Here are some of the top home architecture trends for 2022.  


Cottage Style Details 

The cottage aesthetic has gotten increasingly popular, with many builders embracing the quaint feel that cottage architectural details like gabled roofs and neutral colors provide to homes. Many cottage-style homes today have Georgian roots, with details such as brick quoins, like those found at Brookwood Point, an active senior community by Ole South.  

Modern Craftsman Design 

Interest in Craftsman-style homes has been picking up since the 1990s, but the design stands more popular than ever. Modern Craftsman homes can be identified by their low-pitched, triangular roofs, overhanging eaves, heavy columns, patterned windows, and covered front porches. Modern Craftsman homes are immensely popular for buyers looking for new construction homes in Middle Tennessee.  


Energy-Efficient Materials 

Homeowners today expect their homes to be energy efficient. The home building process is where this begins. Homebuyers looking for a new, construction house should look for builders who use quality, long-lasting materials with strong insulating properties — leading to more efficient heating and cooling.  


Indoor/Outdoor Spaces 

Homeowners today are embracing the beauty of Middle Tennessee, with porches and outdoor living spaces that bring the outdoors in. For those looking to incorporate this home trend, Ole South has designed many floor plans that offer homebuyers the option to add additional covered porches to the back of their homes. Check out the stunning indoor/outdoor spaces available in homes located in MurfreesboroFairview, and other Nashville-area communities.  


Multi-Generational Living 

Many home buyers aren’t solely looking for a home for themselves — they often have children, parents, grandchildren, or grandparents that live with them as well. This has generated increasing popularity of split-suite and bonus-suite home designs. Many one-story homes today add privacy by using a split-suite design, such as those found in Ole South Cottage Collection homes. Homeowners looking for more space often choose two-story bonus-suite options, where a second oversized suite is added, usually above the garage.
