These Amenities Are Favorites Among New Home Builders This Year

While remodels and renovations allow us to update certain features or rooms of homes, new home builds allow us to implement all of the best new home amenities at once. Which ones, though, are builders and buyers most focused on this year? To get a feel for exactly which amenities are being most prominently featured in today’s new homes, the National Association of Home Builders conducted a survey. It revealed a few trends on the rise, and a few that are on the out.

Here is what they discovered to be the top ten amenities included in new homes in 2015:

  1. Walk-in closets in the master bedroom
  2. Laundry rooms
  3. Low-E windows
  4. Great rooms (i.e. kitchen/family/living rooms)
  5. Energy Star rated windows
  6. Ceiling heights of at least nine feet on the first floor
  7. 2 car garages
  8. Programmable thermostats
  9. Granite countertops in the kitchen
  10. Central islands in the kitchen

As evidenced by the Low-E and Energy Star windows and programmable thermostats, new home builders care about going green. Here are the top ten things they do not care about in 2015:

  1. Outdoor kitchens
  2. Laminate countertops in the kitchen
  3. Outdoor fireplaces
  4. Sunrooms
  5. Two-story family rooms
  6. Media rooms
  7. Two-story foyers
  8. Walking and/or jogging trails in the nearby area
  9. Whirlpools in the master bathroom
  10. Carpeting as main level flooring
