If you are working with a custom home designer to build or renovate a home this year, checking out current home trends is a great way to get ideas. There are so many small details that go into the construction, design, and decorating of a new home.

Some homeowners approach a home build or renovation already knowing exactly what they like and what they want. But this isn’t the case for everyone. Some people find it very difficult to pinpoint the style and aesthetic they want. Working with a custom home builder can be helpful.

Not that it ever really went away, but 2022 is proving to be a good year for the color black. When designing a home, you should be careful how you use darker colors, but when used effectively, black can be a powerful tool in your designer toolbox.
A new way black is being used this year is on interior and exterior window frames. Framing in black around front doors is also growing in popularity. Some homeowners are even taking the bold step of adding black accent walls to rooms. These are really spectacular when paired with a white-framed photo gallery.
Other places to use black include appliances, plumbing fixtures, and lighting.
