In 2022, homebuyers have a new set of priorities. Features like sustainability, multifunctionality, and minimalism have become more popular than the decadence and maximalism of mid-2000s McMansions. At the same time, ultra-industrial buildings have fallen in popularity as homeowners seek cozy, comfortable environments packed with character. Today’s buyers want homes that walk a fine line between modern aesthetics and timeless design. The solution? Beautiful artisan, craftsman style homes like those found throughout Nashville, Tennessee.
The Rise of the Craftsman: Understanding Shifting Priorities
Before the pandemic, industrial and contemporary designs dominated the architectural scene. Residential and commercial buildings favored sharp lines, plain gray walls, and stark elements like exposed metal pipes. However, this rapidly shifted as the government issued stay-at-home orders.
As Americans began spending days, weeks, and months in their homes, their priorities changed. Years of quarantine forged a new trend: a mixture of craftsman-style houses and modern house styles. Essentially, a combination of craft and character. This blend brings out the best of both design directions, ensuring that homeowners can enjoy both timeless, classic elements and a celebration of modern style.
