As a result of this what we are witnessing is an increasing number of sustainable and eco-friendly homes coming up across the country. These eco-friendly homes are not only maximizing the use of natural elements like light and breeze to reduce energy consumption, but are also generating clean energy through solar panels for self consumption. They are using storm water harvesting techniques to use rain and snowmelt water.

This is another trend where we see technology being leveraged to maximise comfortable living of people. There is an increasing number of people who are getting their homes set up with smart devices that can be controlled using a mobile phone. So while they are on their way back from work, they can switch on the AC and set it at their preferred temperature or start the sprinklers in the lawn.

There are a lot more people today who are ditching the traditional home layouts and opting for open layouts. They are using changing colour hues, furniture, and even foundation levels to separate different areas of the house instead of using walls and beams as the separator.
