Custom Home builder

Every new year brings new custom home building trends. Home design is ever evolving as family dynamics shift and certain home features take precedence over others. Change is exciting and Tidewater Homes is happy to continue offering our homebuyers top quality luxury custom home building services! Since 2014, Tidewater Homes has been building new homes in Jacksonville and throughout Duval, Clay & St. Johns counties in Northeast Florida. Our team has over 65 years of collective building experience and a passion for creating luxury custom homes. Let’s dive into the latest and greatest custom home building trends we expect in 2024.


Complete Home Customization

There is probably nothing better than having exactly what you want, how you want it. One of our favorite trends in 2024 just happens to be one that clients can only get with a true custom home builder like Tidewater Homes: full home build and design customizations. With Tidewater Homes, every detail can be personalized to comfortably fit your family’s unique wants and needs. From cabinetry and countertops to appliances and fixtures, the possibilities are endless when working with a home design studio that values personalization and comfort. With a true custom home builder, you won’t be limited to a certain catalog of flooring selections, exterior paint colors, or anything else. We have a selection of spacious floor plans ready to be customized, or our New Home Design Studio team can work with an architect of your choice to create a custom home design from scratch!


Energy Efficiency

In 2024, a home’s energy efficient is one of the top priorities. New custom homes built with high quality, sustainable materials and insulation that help conserve energy loss will save homeowners thousands on energy bills in the future. In Northeast Florida smart homes, that means the roof, insulation, lights, appliances, plumbing, water heater, windows, and even the landscaping design can be custom tailored to maximize performance, reduce waste, and save money. Tidewater Homes can work with our clients on a whole-house systems approach which ensures every detail from the build to the interior design is thoughtfully planned with energy-efficiency at top of mind.


Multigenerational Living

In 2024, more generations are coming together to live under one roof. According to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2023 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, fourteen percent of all home buyers in 2023 were motivated to purchase a home to accommodate multiple generations in their family. If you’re considering building a custom home, you might also be accounting for in-laws, grandparents, or adult children living on the same property, now or someday in the future. It’s important to ensure the space is best utilized and there won’t be uncomfortable overcrowding. Tidewater Homes can help build a luxury custom home that works for multigenerational living, through a larger floor plan, an in-law casita suite or accessory dwelling unit on the property. No matter the reason, a new custom home built in 2024 should serve your family’s needs for many years in the future.


Maximizing Outdoor Living Spaces

After the pandemic forced people in, enhancing the outdoor living spaces at home has been on the trend. Renovating your outdoor living space into a luxurious extension of your indoor living area can make being home your favorite place to be. We’re lucky to live in Florida where beautiful outdoor living spaces can be utilized year-round! Custom home features like covered patios, outdoor kitchens, and courtyards are highly requested these days.


Healthy Home Features

Another 2024 home design trend is a healthy home initiative. Air filtration systems and whole-home water purification systems help ensure new homeowners are met with clean air and water from day one. Healthy home design may also call for increased natural lighting to help boost energy levels – another win for Florida sunshine! Tidewater Homes continues to innovate and improve our luxury custom home design/build processes to incorporate advancements in healthy home features that our clients are wishing for.


While these 2024 custom home building trends might look different in future years, we’re excited for the possibilities and love working with each one of our clients to build the home of their dreams. We’re eager to help you begin your custom home building journey in Northeast Florida! Contact us today to request a consultation!
