Yankee Barn clients are demographically diverse. Ages vary, lifestyles differ and requirements for new house designs are as individual as our clients are. But none of this is an issue at Yankee Barn Homes. A home building company with 50 years under our belt, YBH builds high-end post and beam, partial post and beam, and panelized homes in a range of architectural styles. Each home is a custom design born of the collaboration between the client and the YBH Design Team.
Yankee Barn House Design Trends
Diversity reigns among today’s new homeowners, but there is common ground within their ranks. Perhaps what we are seeing is a return to authenticity. Specific style trends appear to support this idea.
Commonalities in Home Design Choices
- A blend of materials and design periods – contemporary and vintage exist side by side and support individualism through unique stories.
- The rise of the color black – possibly as a counter-story to the popularity of white, black has become the new bold color choice.
- Homes reflecting personal interests and hobbies – a yoga room, a hobby room, wider pathways and curb-less showers, designed on purpose to suit the homeowner.
- Larger family living spaces, even in smaller homes – people are feeling the need to connect and share with loved ones.
People are embracing health, time with loved ones, and decor with a history. All white cabinets might be too sleek and lack the warmth of imperfections. Homeowners are bringing back the grain, and with it, a story. There is a desire to reconnect and create a comfortable environment for all who enter the home.
