Custom Home Builders: When Should I Carry Out Home Improvement Project?

People generally carry out home improvement projects for many reasons. For some, it could be that their home design or style is becoming outdated. While others may simply be looking to increase the overall value of their property. In such cases, home remodeling (including kitchen or bathroom renovations) makes a lot of sense. 

Another reason you may want to improve your home is when it’s no longer safe for you and your household to live in the building. This is especially if the house has stood for many decades and the structure has grown weak, putting parts of the building at high risk of collapse.

Once you are ready to make a change, the first step you should take is to check out Arlington custom home builders you can trust. 

In Luka Builders you have a contractor with industry experience, knowledge, and professionalism not only to simplify your home remodeling and construction project but also to ensure you don’t break the bank for such projects.

Popular Architectural Styles for New Home Construction In Arlington, VA

Luka Builders is one of the best custom home builders Arlington VA you can trust to deliver just about any style for your new home construction. Here are some top examples of building styles we can help you execute:

1. Mid-Century Modern

This modern building style is inspired by the post-WWII era in the 1950s and ‘60s. Homes with this design style are characterized by geometric shapes, flat panes, and bold color palettes, both inside and outside. 

The mid-century style typically features multiple windows to make the most of incoming sunlight. This style is common in prefabricated homes, with contemporary architecture borrowing design elements.

2. Colonial

You simply can’t beat the classics! As far as Arlington architecture is concerned, Colonial has always been one of the dominating styles. Although the name “Colonial” suggests something archaic, you will very unlikely find any old buildings in Arlington, since America is relatively a new country. 

Instead, you will come across gambrel roofs,  large chimneys, thick walls, decorative crowns, and flattened columns. Most “Colonial” houses are symmetrical and are focused on brickwork. 

The colonial is famous for its simple two-story box style appearance. The typical Colonial style also features a central panel front door flanked by rectangular windows.

For the fact that this design is currently in high demand, sometimes Arlington custom home builders who are looking to gain some traction often refer to random home styles as colonial, even if they are split-level ramblers, for instance. So you have to be sure you are dealing with a reliable home builder to get exactly what you want.

3. Farmhouse

Scandinavian design is one popular European style that is gradually being adopted in the United States. It is often confused with mid-century modern, although they are quite different. The main reason for this confusion is that Scandinavian-styled homes also have many windows and smooth, geometric shapes just like the mid-century style. 

The only striking difference between the two is that Scandinavian is more likely to have a pointed roof, unlike the flat roofs of mid-century modern homes. 

The Scandinavian design also focuses on neutral tones and warm aesthetics. These sorts of buildings are similar to contemporary-style cabins.

4. Modern Rustic

The evidence of a modern rustic space is an open floor plan with modern pieces of furniture and preserved and exposed natural architectural components. The color scheme of a modern rustic architectural style is very simple with large windows bringing the outdoors in. This style boasts a unique kind of elegance that appears informal, yet, it is comfortable and depicts modern living at its best! 

5. Georgian

This is another popular style among Arlington custom home builders. Although Georgian homes find themselves more embellished, they also focus on symmetry and are quite similar to the Colonial style. The only major difference between the two styles is the level of ostentation. 

In recent times, the Georgian styles in Arlington have undergone so much evolution due to European pattern books. The popular Nelson House in Virginia is one great example of Georgian Architecture.

6. Craftsman

You simply can not talk about American Architecture without mentioning the Federal style. It is based mostly on the English Adamesque style and took its cues from ancient Roman architecture. These buildings are more likely to be more embellishing and decorative than Georgian styles, which is a plus for those who are primarily interested in aesthetics.

The Federal was the first style of the newly formed United States and is now one of the dominating building styles across the entire US, especially in bustling urban areas like Massachusetts, but not excluding places like Virginia and Arlington, to be precise.
