Unique Features of Trendmaker Homes

There are many things to consider when you’re buying a new home. From floor plans to finishes, the decisions you make about your home may be with you for years to come.


Fortunately, Trendmaker Homes makes it easy for you, adding unique features in our communities and homes that you’re sure to love. Here are nine of our best:

1. Master-planned communities

Location is one of the most important aspects of purchasing a new home. Do you need easy access to a major roadway to get to work? Exceptional schools? Are parks, trails and other active-lifestyle features must-haves? Trendmaker builds beautiful homes in a range of price points in convenient master-planned communities in both the Houston and Austin areas. In these prime locations, you’re close to great schools, dining, shopping and abundant recreation.

2. Smart Homes

For many people, the biggest cost of a home after a mortgage is the energy bill. So, you want to have a home where you can live in comfort but keep your energy bills in check. Thanks to Trendmaker’s LivingSmart® program, cost savings occur from standard and optional features like smart heating and cooling systems that you control with your smart device and energy-saving appliances. A radiant roof barrier helps with toasty Texas summers. Plus, smart doorbells and door locks can give you peace of mind.

3. Architectural elements

Trendmaker homes have sophisticated architectural styling including Hill Country, Mediterranean or traditional, giving you gorgeous options that you’ll love coming home to. Details are unique to each city. In Houston, you might find coffered ceilings, beams and tray ceilings in different homes, while in the Capital City, beautiful Austin stone is popular to create stunning exteriors.

4. Designer details

Whether you choose a move-in ready home or work with our Design Studio on stylish selections, Trendmaker Homes is known for beautiful, premium finishes that come in every home. You’ll find exceptional flooring, cabinetry and plumbing fixtures in contemporary colors, styles and shapes.

5. Top chef kitchens

Open kitchens with spacious, welcoming central islands are just right for entertaining – or doing homework. Depending on your area, you’ll find options like a butler’s pantry, double ovens or a desk area. With features like this, the kitchen may well become the favorite room in your home.

6. Open concept spaces with lots of light

In all Trendmaker homes, you’ll find beautiful open spaces blanketed in natural light. Plenty of windows are included in every design.

7. Signature hidden storage

Select homes feature Trendmaker’s signature hidden storage, a versatile room hidden behind a bookcase.

8. Drop zones

Imagine how handy a wall of cubbies and a bench off the garage could be, especially on rainy or cold weather days. In select floor plans, Trendmaker has you covered with attractive drop zones for coats, backpacks and pet accessories.

9. Indoor-outdoor spaces

Texas residents love their outdoor spaces and enjoy al fresco dining almost all year long. Trendmaker Homes either have plans that include a covered patio or offer an optional covered patio, perfect for entertaining. Add a grill and comfy, outdoor furniture, and you’re in business.
