Living In Your Home


You’re never really ‘done’ when it comes to interior design. With each new year comes exciting new trends and possibilities, offering a fresh start for recent and long-established homeowners alike!

These are a few of the top interior decor trends we’re watching in 2019: colours, materials, accents and styles that are already making statements in our favourite home magazines and design feeds.

1. Darker Shades

This is the year to break out of the neutral-zone and embrace your dark side. The all-white wall trend is starting to feel worn-out, and more and more homeowners are leaning towards darker, more dramatic shades. Dulux/PPG even selected a deep shade of green called Night Watch as its 2019 colour of the year!

2. Quartz Countertops

The verdict is in: according to Houzz, 2018 was the year that engineered quartz finally eclipsed granite as the material of choice for new kitchen countertops. Engineered quartz can have a similar look and feel to slate, granite or soapstone, but at a fraction of the cost – plus, quartz is more durable and easier to clean. Its shimmer-smooth surface is a great way to brighter your kitchen.

3. Statement Mirrors

Mirrors are a practical accent: they bounce light, expand the horizon, and let you check your reflection on the way out the door. Bigger is better when it comes to mirrors in 2019, with more designs that rest against the wall rather than hanging from it.

4. Blended Walls, Baseboards, and Trims

Trims and baseboards don’t need to stand out from the wall. In fact, painting baseboards and trims the same colour as the walls is a classic interior design trick – it makes small rooms feel taller and open spaces seamless. This continuous paint technique is one of the fastest-growing interior décor trends going into 2019, especially in offices and living rooms.

5. Textured Walls

Accent walls are an interior design staple, but the traditional two-tone design is a bit out-of-fashion in 2019. Textured walls are a more contemporary way to distinguish different parts of the space. Geometric wood patterns and modern paneling are growing trends, along with colourful wallpaper that gives the illusion of texture.

  • FAQ

    Where can I get a price list or How come your website doesn’t show pricing?

    Prices vary geographically, depending on where you are building. With the amount of options available, price lists run into thousands of options. Prices change with the options you choose. The best way to get an idea on pricing would be to contact our Design Centre nearest to where you are building.

    What is your average square foot selling price?

    Prices for a complete home, including foundation vary from $200 sq-ft to over $300 because our homes are all custom built, we can design a home to fit your budget.

    Why should I buy from you over a conventional or "Stick-Builder"?

    The advantages of prefab include building in a climate controlled environment, using environmentally friendly products which reduces waste and a CSA monitored quality controlled program. There is less time start to finish, with less disruption to neighborhood. We also sell at a firm price.

    Do your homes include a foundation?

    Yes our homes include full foundation and basement.

    How long does it take to build a Royal Home?

    It takes less than two weeks to build a home in our factory, but the process from start to finish is very dependent on the timing of obtaining a building permit. For most of our clients the process from start to delivery is twelve to sixteen weeks with move in eight to twelve weeks thereafter.

    What size homes do you build?

    As a custom builder we can build any size home but generally the average size range is between 1300 and 3500 sq feet.

    Do you build garages?

    Yes. Garages are built on site after the home is delivered.

    Are the homes energy efficient?

    Building a prefab home in a factory assures the highest attention to sealing the building envelope and ensures that the cold stays out.

    Since your homes are so energy efficient and air tight, how do you get fresh air?

    All our homes have HRV heat recovery ventilator air exchanger to remove stale air, and introduce fresh air.

    Where can I put a prefab home?

    Anywhere in Ontario you like.

    Can I really customize my prefab home?

    Yes, we use state of the art custom design software, today no two homes are built alike.

    Do you finish the basement?

    Yes. We can customize your basement to the finishes you desire.

    Are Royal Homes built to code?

    All Royal Homes are individually designed to meet all provincial and municipal building codes for your specific lot location.

    Do you build stick-built or conventional homes as well?

    We are a custom home builder first and use prefabricated components wherever we can, because it is a better way to build. If you have a remote site or custom home design with large open spaces we would look at what makes most sense for that design and location. This could include prebuilt panels or partially site built specific rooms.

    What makes the building process environmentally friendly?

    Waste in the factory is separated and recycled, reducing the impact on landfills. This has less disruption in terms of noise and time at job site. Building prefab allows for higher energy efficient homes and reduced heating costs.

    How is your home delivered?

    Our home is delivered by way of custom designed hydraulic flatbed trailers and precisely craned onto the foundation.

    Can you make changes or custom design?

    Yes, clients are given preliminary plans to review and changes are welcome and easily accommodated.
