Most Requested Design Features

Every home buyer is unique, and they all have distinct ideas about what they want most in their new home. Sometimes, our buyers bring ideas to the table that turn out to be standard features in future homes. Our design team is always working to balance the newest trends in home design with traditional classics that stand the test of time. This summer, check out the design features that buyers are requesting most:

Coffered Ceilings

Not just for formal dining rooms anymore, coffered ceilings above living rooms and kitchens are gaining in popularity. They add quiet elegance to the space and are a surprisingly cost-effective feature.

Ship Lap Accents & High Wainscoting

Made widely popular by a certain home improvement television show, ship lap accent walls in kitchens, offices, and dining areas are always a hit with new home shoppers. So is high wainscoting, a more modern version of a traditional chair rail and molding.

Barn Doors

Adding a sliding barn door in a rich finish with rustic hardware is a great way to add easy, farmhouse appeal to your home in the suburbs.

White-washed Brick

So many current design trends include bright, white palettes. White-washed brick, especially on a fireplace surround and hearth, brings muted texture to that white background. Plus, it’s a great underpinning for a stained cedar mantle where artwork can be displayed.

Accent Island

Now a standard feature in all new RHG homes, kitchen islands in an accent color bring subtle variety to open-concept floor plans. Add pedestal legs and room for seating, and you’ve got a design feature perfect for homework after school or extra seats at family celebrations.

Covered Back Porch

RHG builds across the north Atlanta metro region, and we know how much our customers love the outdoors. Each one of our new homes is complete with a covered back porch, the best shady spot to enjoy your new backyard, put dinner on the grill, or watch the big game on your outdoor TV.

The best thing about all of these design elements? Each one can be added to any Richardson Housing Group new home, and many of them are already standard features! To explore our latest new home communities and see current listings, visit today.
