This year’s Homearama was a huge success, with record crowds recorded and outstanding reviews given from new home buyers. Many of my friends from The Content Squad were part of that record crowd, touring each home and noting which eye-popping features seemed to stand out most to them. Here’s a run down of their Homearama perspectives and what impacted them most.
“I attended Homearama for the first time with my wife and it was really cool to see the many differing builders’ styles and the unique blend of color schemes that were used creatively throughout each home.”
“I love going to Homearama, but this year I really enjoyed the fact that some homes were scaled down in size from previous years. Still immaculately designed and built, but with more open floor plans. Entire kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms were all one big space with no dividing walls. You could cook dinner, watch tv, and chat with visitors seated in the dining room all at the same time.”
“This was my first year attending Homearama and I had a wonderful time touring the homes. I have a personal interest in interior architecture and design, so I enjoyed getting design ideas from each house. Each home was artfully designed and decorated for entertaining guests, from open concept kitchens and living rooms, to outdoor fireplaces and basement bars. On a side note, it was interesting to see that one home had even stocked its pantry with groceries from Kroger.”
“So many exciting new things were introduced this year at Homearama. The Pocket Office idea is one of the most impressive and functional ideas in homebuilding that I have seen in a long time. I love that you can walk in the door and instantly store and charge your electronic devices and then grab them back fully charged and ready to go before you head back out the door. This idea is also productive because as we drive in and check the mailbox, mail tends to get scattered in the car, shoved in purses or grocery sacks for proper filing and oftentimes just plain lost in the shuffle. With the addition of a pocket office, your mail has a home right inside your door and is uniformly filed away for safe keeping. I really loved this new, innovative idea!”
“Besides spending a night away with my wife, Ashley, without the kids, it was nice to see friends in the community while looking at amazing homes. Each home had its own unique appeal but what stood out most to me is the Pocket Office, the Crimsafe porch screen, which was fantastic, the kids’ playhouse in the basement and the home office with its own front door entry. Homearama isn’t just a chance to see amazing homes and designs, but it’s also a great social event in this city, year in and year out.”
