Here at Homes By WestBay, we work seriously hard to make sure you’re  happy with your new home, but we get to have fun too! One of our favorite parts of the home building industry is seeing all the beautiful ways our homeowners choose to reflect their personal style in their homes.

When you meet with our designer and tour our studio, you get a full hands-on experience where you can see, hear, feel, taste, and touch the very materials that you’ll find in your home. We see such an array of unique personalities and interesting ideas, and we love incorporating some of those ideas into our models. We pride ourselves on our wide assortment of materials and the purpose behind each individual detail. Why settle for ordinary ceilings when you could have crown molding? Why have a doorway, when you can have a beautiful archway? Naturally, some interior trends emerge every year, and this is what we’re swooning over for 2016!

1.)  Exterior Fabrics and Materials Inside the Home

People all around the country are falling for materials like burlap and wicker to adorn their living rooms, bedrooms, and family rooms. The durability of the fabric is fantastic for a busy family and creates an understated elegance that will leave a lasting impression. Oh, and the best part? It’s easy to clean! Moms, rejoice!

2.) Dramatic Staircases

If you’re the homeowner interested in an automatic WOW factor, the double staircases trend of 2016 is perfect for you. Guests will marvel at the elegance and question how deep your pockets go, but you’ll revel in the value and affordability of your exquisite new home. Imagine taking family photos, prom pictures, and Christmas memories in our spacious living rooms.

3.) Formal Dining Rooms

America is all about the dining room this year, so feast your eyes on lush fabric, tall ceilings, and private dining space. 2016 will definitely be the Year of the Dinner Party, and Homes By WestBay is happy to help you host!
