7 Trendy Great Room Ideas For Your Home

Great rooms are definitely something to be desired in a home – they not only offer a fantastic area for families to gather daily, but also a great space to entertain guests comfortably. With great rooms being an anchor room in a home, it’s only natural that they should be a truly “wow” space – and we are seeing some incredible ideas within the home building industry.

When it comes to building a home, the great thing is, you get to add custom features to truly make it yours from the very beginning – and you should definitely consider including and customizing a great room.

Not quite sure where to begin? No worries. Our team of home building experts have put together the top trends we’re seeing in great room designs and decor, that will make your space comfortable, yet chic and will not only impress guests – but increase the value of your home, should you plan to sell in the future.

1.  Statement Chandelier 

A unique lighting choice is an easy way to make a bold statement. Give your great room a focal point by adding a large chandelier with dramatic features. A well-chosen chandelier can add much-needed flair and contrast to an otherwise plain room.

2.  Contrasting Colors & Textures

From wooden beams, accent colored walls and stone fireplaces, to rustic leather chairs, steel fixtures, crown molding and bold printed rugs – different colors and textures add depth to any room – whether it’s in the initial build, or splashed throughout the decor.

3. Window Styles & Treatments 

Details can add such class to any room, especially when it comes to the windows. Frames offer a wide variety of choices for any style preference – from colonial and cape cod, to French, Victorian and tudor paned. All while treatments, like wood blinds or floor-to-ceiling drapery, can add warmth and comfort.

4. Window-Filled Walls

Sometimes no details can make an even larger impact. Floor-to-ceiling windows truly open up a room, making it not only feel much more spacious, but allows natural light to flood in. And if you are on a great piece of property – could give you a wonderful natural view!

5. Rustic In Style 

The modern farmhouse look has definitely blown up and proven it’s here to stay! From giant wooden beams and supports, to chunky custom built-in wooden shelving. Add in some metal-framed furniture pieces, animal prints to your decor – and, voila! you have a rustic style to your home.

6. Extend Your Room To The Great Outdoors

We’ve been seeing a lot of extra large sliding doors that extend interior rooms into an outdoor living space; creating a completely open concept. Outdoor living spaces are increasing in popularity as well as details. We’re talking full-on outdoor kitchens with counters, stoves and brick ovens – to outdoor living rooms with large sectionals and fireplaces; complete with a pergola to shelter from direct sunlight or rain.

7. Extensions & Beyond

We’re loving the look of vaulted ceilings or mini extensions of spaces! Vaulted ceilings create a much more open feel to a room (and look fantastic with the beams or statement chandeliers we talked about above!), while extended spaces, like popped out windows with a bench, are great for additional guest seating or reading nook. They add a personal touch to a cookie-cutter style home and also add value.
