Interest in affordable, eco-friendly home details is increasing, especially amongst younger home buyers. Go green with concrete counter tops–we’re fans of Soupcan in Chicago; tankless water heaters and recycling bins built into kitchen cabinets. Energy-efficiency is another related feature buyers are looking for, according to the AIA report. Alternative home insulation techniques & extra insulation in the attic are among most-wanted features. Aesthetically, we’ll be soothed by the serene colors of sand, the sea, the sky, and trees. Always present are natural materials like stone, wood, glass and metal.
