A Little Frugality Can be Good

Functionality and frugality are becoming popular when it comes to a person’s home.

In a recent design trends survey by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) it has been stated that, “The precipitous decline in house prices over the past five years and the resulting growth in the number of homeowners with delinquent mortgages or mortgages in foreclosure has dramatically changed the way that households are making decisions.

One of the high consumer priorities according to the American Institute of Architects are insulation products including alternative techniques such as structural insulation panels and sprayed foam, as well as additional insulation in the attic. Also gaining in popularity are first floor master bedrooms, ramps and elevators, and easy-to-use handles and faucets.

Another popular trend has been found in home products, that reduce energy cost or environmental concerns were a big concern for consumers. Examples include water conserving devices, use of reclaimed and salvaged materials, products aimed at improving indoor air quality, renewable flooring products such as bamboo and cork, and moisture control systems to reduce mold.

According to AIA, among construction sectors, homes geared for first-time buyers are on the verge of recovery later this year.
