Niche-style hotel properties have been hot for years and now the lifestyle trend has arrived in the home building industry.
In recent years, U.S. home builders have embraced the idea that they are selling more than roofs over their buyers’ heads. They’ve come to realize the importance of offering specialized communities that cater to different types of buyers across the country. In fact, Americans’ evolving lifestyles are shaping home design and inspiring new communities, says marketing expert Emily Siwek.
And while residential builders are becoming more inventive with the choices they offer, they could take a cue from hotel developers, who have been meeting consumer demand for personalization for years. Whether it’s a singles-only floor, a millennial-focused lobby, or tennis courts designed by a pro, hotels large and small excel at lifestyle design. From picnic table desks to open-air lobbies and farm-to-table demonstration kitchens, they are breaking the mold of what top-notch hospitality should look like.
