Moving into a home is an important moment in life, even for those who have done it before. The Baby Boomer generation is a powerful force in the housing market, with more than 700,000 looking for homes in the next year.
These 55-plus home buyers are far from ready to sit in a rocking chair in the sun all day (though they can do that too). They are looking for a home that will allow them to embark on a new adventure. They want to entertain family and friends, have access to community and amenities, and stay active. But they also want a home that will allow them to age in place—a home that will meet their needs through the golden years.
Busy 55-plus home buyers don’t have the time or sometimes the ability to keep up a home, that’s why Daltile products are a perfect match for Boomer homes. We offer durable products that have the style and finesse of the lifestyle of a Boomer.
BUILDER magazine and Taylor Morrison approached Daltile about their joint effort, a show home aimed at the 55-plus crowd, called the NEXTadventure Home.
The show home is part of a plan for a 55-plus community in Clermont, FL, just a short drive from Orlando and all the entertainment it offers. It features outdoor living spaces, large kitchens suited for entertaining, ideal pantries, oversized showers, and extra bedrooms.
“The Boomer homebuyers are very discerning in their tastes and have a very clear vision for what their next chapter of life should entail, and we make that lifestyle a reality in our communities,” says Taylor Morrison president and CEO, Sheryl Palmer.
Taylor Morrison has selected Daltile products like Retro Rounds, Saddle Brook XT, and Ambassador that have fairly hands-off maintenance or superior slip-resistance for designs that lets 55-plus homeowners enjoy what’s most important.
