The "New Traditional" Style

The new classics blend traditional design with modern styling. This “new traditional” style is being seen in many new homes, and it’s a way to bring the charm and character of older homes to newly constructed homes. Have you hesitated to build a new house because you don’t want a cookie cutter home? We understand. That’s why all Wayne Homes are customized to be uniquely yours. All elements can be customized to look and feel the way you want. From switching out a room from another floor plan to building a custom kitchen, we put you in control of what your “new traditional” home looks like.

Traditional Layout

One way to make a new home have a more traditional feel is by having a classic layout. Open-concept floor plans feel more modern, whereas a more divided home with a formal dining space and a den separate from the great room feels traditional. Another traditional space is a powder room. Make yours feel special with designer wallpaper or shiplap walls. Hearken back to the days of family dinners around the table and treating your guests with care with a more traditional layout, and you’ll feel instant historic character…even in a new home. Browse our floor plans to find the one that feels right for you.

Neutral Colors

Whitewashing the inside of your home makes it feel larger and provides a backdrop for beautiful furniture, rugs or artwork. Adding wood beams to the ceiling or shiplap to the office brings architectural value that is usually seen in older homes. Pale, neutral tones with natural materials and textures are timeless and feel aged. These “new traditional” styles bring old world character to today’s interior design.

Features and Fixtures with Character

Now you have your layout and wall coverings and architectural details chosen, it’s time to add character with the features and fixtures of your home. For the bathroom, a claw foot tub adds instant drama and a historic feel to your home. For the great room, floor to ceiling built-in shelving with sliding ladders and lots and lots of books lend a library vibe that feels estate-like. Rustic fireplaces with reclaimed mantels have that old farmhouse feel that is both cozy and contemporary. Browse our Farmhouse Inspiration photo album to see how we can incorporate this “new traditional” style from the outside in.
