There are always different home staging styles that get hyped in the industry throughout the months. What’s a hit these days may no longer be relevant the following year… but may have a comeback later on. That’s how fast interests shuffle and change due to forecasts. As reference, Trulia Trends reports on what’s in and what’s out in home luxuries.
According to the list of 20 phrases that made it to the trend hunt, the top three home luxuries that are trending up with a significant change in percentages are marble bath (78%), roof deck (63%) and oversized windows (56%). The bottom three are panoramic views (18%), ocean views (18%) and walk-in closets (17%) respectively.
Now a marble bath may be too ambitious, but those who have money to spend are indeed welcoming the comeback of this classic stone. After all, the bathroom is a sacred sanctuary, and to each his own relaxation efforts.
From indoor installations, we now move on to roof deck designs that add more homeyness to your exteriors. As it is currently a talk of the town, homeowners could benefit from design ideas that are abundant on the web.
It’s also interesting how oversized windows are rating highly, but then again, it does offer great illumination in your space. They can be dramatic backdrops to key areas of your home and can boast a good view inside and out.

If you are trying to dress up your home for a future sale, know what remains timeless in the eyes of buyers. It’s better to go for minimal but classic looks to appeal to a broader range of viewers. The trends only serve as a collective guide for your spur of the moment projects, and if you want to go into investment properties, now that’s a different story to tell.
