2019 Design Trends

Design trends are forever changing throughout the years, some stay the same and some make a comeback. Check out some of the design trends we are seeing going into the new year!

Color in the Home

As we have seen throughout the last few years, neutrals have mainly stayed consistent in the home. People have started to add more color into their homes – it could be an entire room, accent wall, or accent piece. We believe adding color to your home is the easiest way to make a statement.

Tiled Walls

Tiled walls are an accent trend that is becoming more popular and we can expect to see more of it in the next year. Although, mosaics have been popular for accent walls, large format tile will be making its way in as the popular product for larger spaces including fireplaces or shower walls.

Pet Areas

Our pets are a part of our families and now designing parts of your home dedicated just for them is becoming a design trend we see going into many homes. It could be a nook under a cabinet or stairs or even a pet spa in the mudroom or laundry room.

Pocket Offices

A pocket office is becoming more popular for today’s homebuyer because they don’t have to give up space in a bedroom and can still have a place to work. A pocket office is also an efficient way to use up space that often wasted in floor plans. We have seen office space going into the laundry rooms or behind a pair of barn doors.

Textured Cabinets

Textured cabinets are a new trend that is making its way into 2019. We believe that adding textured cabinets can add dimension to any room. Keep an eye out for our upcoming spec homes that will showcase this new trend!

Matte White Appliances

White appliances are nothing new and has been commonly seen in the past. The new matte white finish for appliances puts a modern twist to what we’ve seen before. We believe that this new finish will been seen a lot this year and an easy way to brighten up your kitchen.

This month, the spotlight is on Lisa Cameron, Lead Estimator / Custom Home Specialist. Lisa has been with Kimberley Development for nearly four years, but has been in the custom home building industry for 12 years.

Lisa is one of the first points of contact a client will experience with our team and helps make our client’s dream home a reality. Her ability to guide clients through the process from the initial floor plan meeting to completion of the project specifications contract is second to none. Her primary goal is to ensure the process of building a new home is not only an enjoyable experience, but also easy to understand and as stress-free as possible.

Lisa’s passion for delivering homes that outperform the competition stems back to when she worked alongside her father, who is also in the construction industry. Her knowledgeable background along with her dedication to always offering a helping hand to fellow coworkers, makes her an invaluable part of our team.
