NEWNAN, Ga.— Kolter Homes understands active adult lifestyles, and the latest design trends catering to this demographic have been unveiled at Cresswind at Spring Haven, the newest Cresswind community in Newnan, Ga.

Merging aesthetics with functionality for the modern homeowner, Mandy Cornelison, the Design Consultant for Cresswind at Spring Haven, shares insights into what's currently shaping the preferences of active adults seeking a vibrant yet maintenance-free living environment.

"Today's active adults are embracing a lifestyle revolving around simplicity and enjoyment. They're moving away from the burdens of upkeep to spend more time engaging in activities they love, like pickleball, social clubs and concerts," Cornelison explains. This shift in priorities led to a significant change in design preferences.

Here are the top trends Kolter Homes sees with active adult homebuyers.

Clean, streamlined, low-maintenance design. Active adults want to spend more time outside the home and lean toward clean, streamlined, low-maintenance options. "Our homeowners want to spend less time dusting and fluffing,” states Cornelison. Quartz countertops and laminate flooring are go-to choices over granite and hardwoods due to their durability and ease of care.

Everything old is new again! Mixing modern furnishings with a striking antique piece is not just accepted; it's celebrated. It's about making your space truly yours, where modern meets traditional in a harmonious balance. Cornelison highlights the resurgence of blending old with new, creating a unique and personalized space. "The exciting part about current design trends is the freedom it gives,” she adds.

Texture and pattern. Incorporating different textures and patterns through tiles, wall trim details or even a funky accent chair adds depth and appeal to any room. Textures add interest, from the softness of a shaggy rug underfoot to the ruggedness of a stone accent wall. These elements dramatically alter the feel of a space, making it cozier, more luxurious or even more grounded. Similarly, patterns break the monotony of single-color schemes.

Color trends. There is a notable shift to warmer, earthier tones. There is a decline in gray tones as taupe, olive, gold and blues replace them. These colors bring warmth and a sense of calm to interiors, reflecting the natural world outside.

Entertainment spaces. The ability to entertain comfortably in their homes is essential for active adults who value spending time with family and old and new friends at this stage. They want guests to feel welcome and comfortable in their homes. Open floor plans are still a must, and the kitchen is the number one area active adults focus on. A bright, open kitchen with plenty of storage and countertop space is necessary.

Versatile spaces. Another key trend Cornelison points out is the desire for versatile "catch-all" spaces. Whether it's an office, home gym, craft room, man cave or a cozy den, having a flexible space that adapts to various needs is increasingly important for active adults.

Cresswind at Spring Haven is at the forefront of these evolving design trends, ensuring its homes match the lifestyles of today's active adults.
