Robbie’s Real Estate Trends: Clean Lines, Open Spaces

06/06/2014

Clean lines and open spaces are key at 9447 Rockbrook Drive in Preston Hollow. Photos / Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty

Here’s something to consider: While your home is your personal space, when it comes time to put it on the market, sellers should think beyond their own preferences and consider future buyers. After all, new owners want to envision themselves in their new home, not yours.

9447 Rockbrook Drive, Preston Hollow, Dallas, Briggs Freeman Sotheby's luxury home for sale in Dallas Fort Worth-dining

From the real estate point of view, we always try to give advice on how to balance elements like style and architecture with the reality of how people want to live in their home. There are some basics to consider when personalizing your space, particularly if your intent is to sell. In the event your plan is to stay three to five years, it’s prudent to design with that in mind.

9447 Rockbrook Drive, Preston Hollow, Dallas, Briggs Freeman Sotheby's luxury home for sale in Dallas Fort Worth-sitting

These days it seems like design trends are transitioning toward simple and uncluttered; modern, sleek and contemporary. Think clean lines, open spaces, neutral colors – it’s almost a mantra. Whether it’s a family home, a luxurious high rise looking out on the city skyline, or a sprawling ranch property, clients want large, open spaces for entertaining. Plus, there is a preference for uncomplicated design that allows rooms to be used a multitude of ways.

9447 Rockbrook Drive, Preston Hollow, Dallas, Briggs Freeman Sotheby's luxury home for sale in Dallas Fort Worth-master

So what’s driving this simplification movement? It could be the increasing desire to live uncluttered lives while the world’s ever-expanding rush of technology causes information and activity overload. Simplicity means less stress, and that fundamental can easily be communicated in how a home is designed.

Balancing elements, such as style and architecture, with the reality of how people want to live in their homes makes good sense. It’s just that simple.
