2024 Home Design Trends in Ormond Beach

Welcome to the future! As a home builder in sunny Ormond Beach, here at Fretwell Homes we like to stay on top of the latest trends in home design. That way we can build houses that match the lifestyle and needs of today's homebuyers. For 2024, several exciting trends are emerging that we think will be very popular here in Volusia County.

Indoor/Outdoor Living

One of the biggest trends we expect to see more of is indoor/outdoor living spaces. Homeowners in Ormond Beach love being able to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine as much as possible. Features like large sliding glass walls, expanded patios and decks, outdoor kitchens, and seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces will be in high demand. We predict alfresco dining areas and outdoor living rooms to be particularly popular housing features in the coming years.

Flexible Spaces 

Many modern families work, learn, and play in their homes now more than ever. Open floor plans will become even more common to allow flexible use of interior rooms for multipurpose activities. Home offices can double as guest rooms, living rooms can pull triple duty as media rooms and yoga spaces, and large islands can function as casual dining bars or children’s homework stations. Built-in storage solutions and movable partition walls maximize adaptability as needs change.

A Focus on Health

Along with flexibility, 2024 homebuyers will also emphasize health in their new home’s design. Look for a surge in demand for features like air and water filtration systems, large windows that maximize natural light, the inclusion of regular fitness areas, infrared saunas, relaxation nooks, and indoor gardens. Using anti-microbial building materials, low/no VOC paints and finishes, and renewable materials like bamboo floors and countertops also support healthy homes.

Purposeful Kitchens 

The heart of the home continues to be the kitchen. In 2024, expect to see even more giant, gourmet kitchen spaces with pro-level appliances and amenities. But also anticipate requests for practical touches like increased pantry storage, more preparation zones, built-in recycling centers, and pet-friendly features for our four-legged family members. Easy-close drawers and cabinets, pull-out faucets, and technologically advanced appliances will be common inclusions.

Bathroom Spas

Master bathrooms and en-suites will become even more like luxury hotel spas. Some of the popular features we’ll see more of are heated floors, chromotherapy lighting, steam showers, and infinity tub designs. Universal design elements like curbless showers will also increase for both safety and aesthetic reasons. Upscale materials like quartz countertops and metallic finishes give bathrooms a glamorous edge.

Purposeful Storage

In addition to beautiful design features, functional storage solutions continue to rate highly on homeowners’ wish lists. Walk-in wardrobes, mudrooms with built-in cubbies, dedicated pet care zones, and pantry pantries are useful for keeping clutter out of sight. Concealed storage nooks also allow for tucking things away quickly. Stylish and space-efficient storage helps keep homes neat and organized.

Neutral Color Palettes

While color trends come and go, timeless neutral color schemes never go out of style. Warm white, greige, calming blue, and muted green palettes provide an ideal canvas for layering accent colors through changeable items like throw pillows and artwork. We expect light-filled, airy spaces with lots of textures like wood, stone, quartz, marble, and wool to gain traction into 2024 and beyond.

Elevated Exteriors 

Curb appeal and making a great first impression matter to buyers scoping out new construction homes. Features like front courtyard entries, stately architectural details, creative hardscaping using materials like brick and stone, and professional landscaping convey quality craftsmanship. We also anticipate increased interest in attached three-car garages, covered outdoor living spaces, and amenities like fire pits and water features that extend livability outdoors. 

Smart Home Technology

One defining feature of forward-thinking homes is integrated technology. Home automation systems that control lighting, temperature, security, audio/visuals, irrigation and more bring next-level convenience to homeowners. Touch screens, voice controls via artificial intelligence devices, and apps allow easy access to smart home tech. Upgrading to higher efficiency mechanical systems also indicates innovation and sustainable living.

We’re excited to implement these 2024 home design trends into our new construction homes here in Ormond Beach! By blending style, functionality, comfort and cutting-edge features, we build homes that residents can enjoy for years to come.
