If you're looking for townhouse floor plans, you've come to the right place. If you're a trendsetter in home building, you'll know that the latest trends in home building include many features that are at the core of the townhouse.

Trends in Home Building

Going Green

Townhouses are notoriously green and getting greener with new technology. If you live in a townhouse, you already know this. For those who don't you share common walls with neighbors which reduces the need to heat or cool your home considerably. Depending on the design, solar panels can easily be installed on what are commonly flat roofs. Energy efficient windows and doors make the homes even more eco friendly and energy efficient.

Open Floor Plans

The trend in home design has been the open floor plan for a while now. Families like large common areas, especially for entertaining. Townhouses utilize the open floor plan because space must be used wisely. Additionally, because of the shared walls light must be considered. An open floor plan allows for the most natural light to envelope the room. 

Multiple Generations

These days, many families are considering building homes with the idea in mind that there will be many generations living under one roof. That could mean children who stay in the home longer, return after college or grandparents who live in the home to help raise the kids or who prefer family over a nursing home or assisted living facility. The townhouse design allows for bedrooms on each level providing privacy and one's own space while remaining in the fold.

Aging in Place

More and more people are opting to age in place. This means living in your home instead of moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home. A home that is optimal for aging in place is often a single level home but homes with elevators and other considerations for those with special needs work well. Townhomes are easy to navigate and often have elevators since they tend to be three levels or more.
