New Construction Trends in the DC Metro Area

New construction is typically the sign of a busy housing market. And since the DC metro area is a popular place to live, demand for homes is increasing, leading real estate developers to construct new houses and neighborhoods. 
But that's also good news for home buyers: You have more options, and you don't have to settle for a home that doesn't offer the modern features and smart home technology you are searching for. But just what kind of home features are available for DC-area home buyers? 


Open Concept Floor Plans

Gone are the days of separate rooms and walls at every turn. With open floor plans, everything flows together wonderfully, and new construction homes in the DC metro area make the perfect entertaining spaces. If you're cooking a meal in the kitchen, you can easily hold a conversation with someone sitting on the couch in the living area. 

Gourmet Kitchens

New kitchens are the envy of any chef, offering spacious kitchen islands to extend your counter space or offer more seating. Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances are the features of choice, not only for their beauty but for their durability.


First Floor Master Bedrooms

A common feature in aging-in-place homes, first floor master bedrooms or owners suites make it easy for homeowners to get out of bed and travel to the kitchen to make coffee. You don't have to navigate any stairs in the process.

Energy Efficiency

From the appliances to the construction materials, energy efficiency is a popular trend in new home construction in the DC metro area. This includes Energy Star heating and cooling systems and programmable thermostats.

High Ceilings

Giving the impression of an estate home, high ceilings in the foyer or great room offer a dramatic entrance and open up the already spacious floor plan. Best of all, the rooms with high ceilings do not give the impression of closed-in spaces.

Classic Home Styles with a Modern Twist

Craftsman-style homes are a popular trend among many generations of home buyers, and this classic design meets the 21st century in new construction homes in the DC metro area.

New Construction Trends in Luxury Homes

Timeless architecture meets the latest in technology in brand new luxury homes.

In the DC metro area, the standard features that you can find in all new construction properties are still offered, but there are typically more higher-end features offered in addition, such as:

  • zoned heating and cooling
  • marble and hardwood floors
  • home theater system
  • private sauna and/or pool
  • chandeliers
  • elevator
  • library/study
