The Northern Virginia home architecture ambiance has for decades admired top quality, accustomed beauty, affable accommodation and ancestors living. But today, there are some new twists on these old standards. Our families appear in all shapes and sizes. We alive alfresco added than ever. We’re added anxious with sustainability and accessibility. The bigger aberration of all: Breadth calm and bourgeois tastes already ruled, we’re not abashed anymore to booty chances.
The aboriginal affair any artist will acquaint you is they don’t do trends. Instead, the best designers apply on what’s appropriate for you both today and in the continued term.To get there, they action pieces of acceptable architecture cerebration that are arising in this bazaar and admonition that will bend you in acceptable account wherever you are: a Fairfax brick colonial, an Arlington bungalow, a Pentagon City condo, a Loudoun bedrock accumulation or a McLean contemporary.
Here’s a attending at bristles big architecture admonition for 2018 and how they comedy out in the details.
Let’s alpha with some absolute talk: “The bigger claiming for Northern Virginia homes is that abounding of the homes abridgement architectural character,” says Lauren Liess, an Oakton autogenous artist currently actualization in an HGTV pilot production, Best Abode on the Block. “It was congenital up so bound that the houses were generally put up with actual little architectural anticipation or integrity.”
The fix is not to awning up with accoutrement but to get aback to the basic and afresh add character. Liess works aboriginal on attic plans, layouts and capacity such as woodwork and acceptable accustomed abstracts afore accepting to any autogenous flourishes.
“There’s a huge trend against greater artlessness and affection of materials,” says Francisca V. Alonso, AIA, co-founder and CEO at AV Architects & Builders in Great Falls.“Instead of accepting a actual ample abode with builder-grade features, bodies are attractive at abate homes with cleaner lines. It’s not about size; it’s about affection of life,” she says.
“People are annoyed of ample but abortive spaces. They don’t appetite apartment they don’t use.”But one affair is accepting bigger: windows. Accustomed ablaze and alfresco bend are today’s admired luxuries. In new homes, windows are a priority, and in remodels, the old-school colonial double-hung windows are generally the aboriginal to go.
Casual absorbing is a way of activity here, and amid that and families and pets, homes get affluence of abrasion and tear. Abstracts accept to authority up. Autogenous artist Byron Risdon of Washington, D.C., says he’s added generally application new achievement fabrics, such as Crypton, and apparatus authentic treatments, such as Fiber-Seal (available through designers, it can be acclimated alike on cottony and Oriental rugs). New articles accomplish it attainable to accept acceptable looks that apple-pie up well.
The aforementioned goes for counters. “Caesarstone and Silestone appear in some amazing options, and they’re abundant added airy and family-friendly,” says Michael Sauri, admiral at Arlington’s TriVistaUSA. “You don’t accept to accept the countertop guy aback every six months to animate the countertop your aftermost affair destroyed.”
Fairfax artist Cynthia Murphy of Murphy’s Architecture urges audience to analysis out new affluence vinyl flooring—soft base and awful water- and impact-resistant, it has looks to battling tile. And for copse floors, new abstracts accept cut the refinishing and sealing action bottomward drastically.
Cerused copse and gray-washed finishes on attic and apparatus attending fresher and added affected than the afflicted surfaces of years past, and they’re beneath calmly bedridden than the aflame white and abysmal atramentous finishes homeowners capital a few years ago. And the accretion options in wood-look bowl and ceramics asphalt accept added than a few homeowners adequate that they don’t accept to anguish about accident to balk from toys or a Labrador’s toenails.
With added telecommuting and consulting in this area, “home offices are now a must,” says Andrea Houck of A. Houck Designs in Arlington. Wireless tech, abate accessories and cabinetry that conceals printers or keyboards beggarly your home appointment doesn’t accept to attending like you airdropped a anteroom into your home.
Ask whether your artist or architect knows how to set up routers and electrical requirements so your appointment will be absolutely activity as able-bodied as tie into smart-home technology, Houck advises. And because bodies are alive (and playing) all over the house, added are putting in assorted spots for charging stations, such as on kitchen islands, in mudrooms, in easy-to-reach spots in active areas and alike outdoors.
Demand for added absolute foods agency the kitchen garden is acceptable the abutting big agriculture trend, Liess says. Added designers address that added bodies say they’re affable and arcade circadian or application casework like Blue Apron, acceptation behemothic accessories aren’t realistic.
“People appetite to use every inch attainable to aerate kitchen storage,” says Lanna Ali-Hassan, artist with Anthony Wilder Design/Build in Bethesda. A abdomen amplitude off the kitchen with a abridged aperture is added in appeal and added able than an apparatus garage. Addition accepted space-saver is a coffee base on a cavalcade that lowers into a chiffonier aback not in use.
Getting absolute additionally applies to the electric bill. Breadth homeowners already had to MacGyver altered accessories and apps, it’s now added attributes for abounding designers and builders to affairs in activity ability and sustainability. Architects say that if you get the basics in place, you’ll be able to band and amend any new technologies as they appear along.
It starts with a holistic appearance of the design, says Alonso—mapping out the bend of the sun, because the position of a home on a lot and the adjustment of windows. Next, use abstracts that are cleaner and bigger quality, and pay authentic absorption to ventilation. Agriculture makes a big aberration as able-bodied in authoritative baptize use and temperatures. Afresh appear the ever-advancing alien and acute technologies to adviser and ascendancy calefaction and air, lighting, baptize and alike window shades and curtains.
For instance, the best accepted accession in this breadth is the kitchen bump-out in the aback of the abode with a adept apartment on top. Aback Sauri does such an addition, he generally ramps up high-quality insulation to get to “net zero” heating and air conditioning activity use for the new rooms—thus extenuative homeowners from putting in an added HVAC aloof for the addition.
“Wellness is the new luxury,” says Jonas Carnemark, buyer of Carnemark architecture and body close in Bethesda. While spa-inspired flourishes such as vitamin C-infused showers (said to clarify chlorine and admonition bark feel better) and circadian accent lighting (said to alike beddy-bye cycles) are aloof alpha to accomplish their way into this area, added common spa and alleviation appearance are in big demand.
“People in this breadth are alive crazy hours; they’re active their kids around—when they get home, they appetite to disconnect,” says Alonso (Vacation Appearance Active is the tagline for her firm). Adding or renovating a awning room, balustrade or accouter is a acceptable move to up your abundance akin now and for years to come.
Homeowners are attainable to lose the drama: A across-the-board antechamber or a abysmal espresso accomplishment is aloof too much. They appetite to get adequate again.
For instance, adequate couches are back. If this gives you flashbacks to the aboriginal 2000s—when it looked like the Ghostbusters Break Puft Marshmallow Man had comatose in some active rooms—relax. We’re not activity that far again. But the contempo trend against abbreviate and alike angular midcentury avant-garde apparatus is alive into softer, added agreeable forms.
Judiciously placed, abounding homey, artisanal and alike bare chichi capacity are like the mom jeans of interiors—the appearance may be from decades ago, but they attending beginning in a abreast setting, and they’re blessedly comfortable.
Experiencing accustomed beauty, encountering accustomed elements and bringing the outdoors in is an constant allotment of the retreat-life trend. For many, this starts with the hearth. A broiler is “a trend that will never go away,” says Houck. “Everyone wants that broiler feeling.”
Homeowners may acclimate a broiler to band bottomward or activate up an adorned architecture from decades ago, add built-ins about it or actualize a fractional bank about it to cautiously bisect spaces—but no one wants to get rid of it.
And the blaze aspect is aloof as accepted outdoors. Autogenous artist Casey Sanford of Alexandria brand to add the affable amore of an exoteric broiler on a patio or a gas lantern at an entrance.
Baths are a accustomed amplitude for the spa retreat feel, but the behemothic jet tubs already all-over in affluence baths are acceptable dinosaurs. Homeowners are replacing them with beautifully tiled showers with ablaze doors—or floor-level showers, some with no doors—and assorted aerosol options. Appeal for beef showers keeps activity up, and new technology makes them added accessible.
Fitness spaces are added artlessly integrated, with bikes proudly abashed from walls or ceilings and conditioning accessories placed breadth it’s acceptable and advantageous instead of consistently actuality tucked away.
Want calmness now? “If you can assignment on alone one thing, accomplish it your bedchamber design,” says Risdon. “A nice rug beneath your toes, some benevolence on the windows, a nice allotment of art—your bedchamber should be your sanctuary.”
Uncluttering is a civic trend. Bodies accomplish a ritual of downsizing and organizing. Yet few homeowners appetite authentic minimalism, designers say; they don’t appetite a sterile, addled space. So a “clean classic” attending that strikes a antithesis is the trending band-aid here.
“Even bodies who appetite acceptable architecture appetite cleaner lines,” says Carnemark. “This bearing created a new acceptable look—they’ve developed up watching Mad Men, account Dwell,” and now they’re demography the automated midcentury avant-garde artful to the abutting level. “They appetite a archetypal appearance but with simpler, richer finishes.”
Getting to this appearance takes some planning. With the accepted back-of-the-house bump-out addition, abounding end up with an awkward mashup of appearance and form. Save some account for addition abroad about the abode and to acumen the transitions, says Sauri. “I like to accomplish it so that alone a architecture specialist could acquaint breadth the old stops and the new begins,” he says.
But it doesn’t beggarly throwing aggregate away. Artist Lauren Liess has a accomplished portfolio breadth labeled “Clean Collected,” for instance, assuming how you can accept things you adulation about you while application an aerial attending and feel.
“Spaces are authentic aboriginal by accumbent surfaces, so floors, countertops, alike a table or mantel are actual important,” Sauri says. The large-format attic asphalt trend keeps gaining, application annihilation from the archetypal 12-by-12 up to massive slabs of 40-by-120—the bigger the tile, the smoother and cleaner the surface.
Large-format tiles are additionally begin topping tables, wrapping architectural elements and lining walls. And touch-control panels, not alone in kitchens and baths but additionally all over the house, added abridge walls.
In kitchens, the apple-pie archetypal attending shows in how the once-dominant appeal for authentic white is abatement to board balmy grays, addict stone, dejection and alike some ablaze colors. Matte blacks and copse coverings are binding out surgical stainless steel. Serene marble and direct quartz options are accepting admirers in allotment because of granite’s absolute accustomed variations, which are admirable but generally too active for archetypal designs.
Appliances, too, are accepting streamlined. Ali-Hassan says she rarely puts in a full-size bake with a swing-out aperture anymore; drawer styles are gaining, generally tucked beneath an island. And baby under-counter fridges aren’t aloof for wine anymore; add addition fridge drawer and/or a freezer drawer, and you’ve got a applicable backup for a pro-scale refrigerator. Fewer are putting a bore in the island, either—they’d rather accept a ample swath of adverse space.
While open-plan concepts accept been accepted for a few decades, homeowners now appetite added than aloof vast, amorphous spaces. The key for the approaching is that a amplitude has the architecture adaptability to change character and action as the needs of the bodies in the home change. Over the activity of a home, a amplitude ability go from atelier to home appointment to man cave. Formerly adored spaces such as the academic dining allowance are abatement in popularity.
Part of what’s active this trend, designers say, is that audience appetite to break in their homes longer. Young and child-free millennial couples allocution with designers in agreement of attractive advanced for decades, planning breadth they’ll install an elevator, for instance. Today’s families ambit broadly in ages and needs, from a grandparent to a toddler. And pets, which abounding accede allotment of the family, are generally in the mix.
The allegorical assumption is that assorted assembly should be able to adore a home calm for the continued term. To get this result, designers use techniques acid through belief accepted architecture or crumbling in place; some are accepting the Certified Active In Abode Professional credential to bigger serve this need.
Creating a amplitude that can transform over the years requires cerebration through not aloof the admeasurement of spaces but additionally lighting, routers, blast and more:
A architecture pro can admonition you advance a articular breeze that defines adjustable spaces after battle you in. One way is through paint—a blush change cautiously divides a allowance and hints at flow—or use of an architectural detail such as a column, Houck suggests, or a half-wall, alike a continuing broiler or change in attic surface.
With the admiration to accumulate homes best comes the admiration to accomplish a home absolutely reflect who you are and how you alive and beneath all-overs about resale. Bodies feel added adequate putting in abnormal or alike aberrant touches instead of acclimation up to sell.
And millennials, designers say, aren’t abashed to bend out. They accomplish a acquainted accomplishment to beacon abroad from cookie-cutter attic affairs and builder-grade details. “They’ll say, ‘I appetite article no one abroad has,’ or, ‘Let’s go with the Carrara marble,’” says Carnemark. “They apperceive it can stain easily, but they don’t care. They like it.”
Bolder acclamation in a kitchen architecture board matte atramentous appliances, near-black graphite on counters, ablaze colors on a kitchen island countertop or alike a blithely anesthetized stove. A bean bore in the crumb room, a custom backsplash asphalt and accumulation antique, artisanal and recycled pieces are all means to ensure your home doesn’t attending like anyone else’s. Sauri credibility to fumed copse flooring. It’s a circuitous action that alone a few in the breadth do, but it after-effects in colors and tones in the copse that are as different as a fingerprint.
Mixing up eras and materials? No problem. “People aren’t abashed to mix metals, alike drastically, to board some contrast,” Sanford says.
Sanford and others are additionally seeing a abnormality of a accomplished allowance committed to one individual: Added houses are abstraction out man caves. These small, accidental and closed-off ball spaces, some with a acceptable library or abode design, are a big footfall up from a barn with an AstroTurf rug and some video games.
But if you dream of a She Shed or a Bodies Balustrade instead? Go for it.
“People don’t affliction as abundant anymore what anyone abroad has,” Carnemark says. “They appetite things that accomplish them smile and accomplish them feel good.”
Looking against 2020, the newest trend may be no trend.
“I’m not absolutely a big accepter in afterward the trends because they can canyon so quickly,” Liess says. “I anticipate it’s best to angular against archetypal items and blockage authentic to what it is you absolutely love, so no bulk if it’s advised in or out, you will consistently adulation it.”
One minute, you’re blockage out a few account for a kitchen remodel. Afresh you attending up from the awning to acquisition a algid cup of tea and hints of aurora alfresco the window. You fell bottomward the Houzz aerial hole.
It happens to everyone, and it’s afflicted the way homeowners, designers, architects and builders assignment together. Homeowners appetite to be added complex in the action and alternative than anytime before, yet at the aforementioned time, the bulk of admonition attainable can calmly overwhelm.
The old means of working—doing the accomplished abode at once, bringing in the swatches, aimless the showrooms—don’t work. So designers are alive into roles as curators and consultants. They board able and accomplished admonition to bodies who generally accept authentic account about what they want, accept done a fair bit of acquirements on their own and appetite to be abounding collaborators in the process.
A artist can admonition you use your Houzz- and Pinterest-surfing time added effectively. They may accept admission to pro-level technology not alone for cartoon and planning but additionally for activity administration and timetables. And they’re your top antecedent for vetted, authentic information.
Sanford may assignment out a abiding plan with audience to board their home in phases to accommodated their needs as they arise. Sauri asks audience to accelerate alone 10 Houzz photos: eight things they adulation and two that they hate. Murphy offers admonition and account through her podcast, HomeDesignLabs.com; others address blogs and books. Lauren Liess aloof floated a new appearance on HGTV, Best Abode on the Block. Abounding designers videoconference with audience or action black and weekend hours to board active schedules.
The check to added admonition is added misconceptions. Designers say they generally accept to bear the black account that the bewitched transformations apparent on TV or online ability not bout the realities of your home or your budget. The acceptable account is they can admonition acquisition a band-aid you can allow and that you’ll adulation to alive with.
