Below are the Top 10 floorplan trends for Raleigh custom homes. See how many of these floor plan design features are in your new home wish list.

Floor Plan Trend #1: Walk in pantry

Custom home floor plans will include more walk in pantries, in several unexpected locations .

- Glass front cabinetry

Floor Plan Trend #3: Main floor master

Main floor master suites will continue to be a top homebuyer request.

Why choose to build a first floor master home?

- Main floor master suites are great forlong-term planning. They eliminate the need to climb stairs every day.

- Main floor master suites enable easy access to outdoor living spaces. Many homeowners are adding a set of French doors to open their master bedroom into a screen porch, deck, or patio.

Floor Plan Trend #4: More Accessible

From fully accessible floor plans (which qualify for grants) to individual features, many Raleigh custom homes will integrate accessibility.

Floor Plan Trend #5: Guest suites
