Many of the 2014 remodeling trends that will gain popularity this year are based in technology. The future is here and our homes serve some of the best examples of modern innovation possible in renovation. Utilizing the most advanced tech available while still maintaining a comfortable and luxurious feel in your house is a wise goal.
A serious staple of any new space is the USB outlet. Mimicking the traditional wall plug, these devices offer two USB inputs to directly charge your smartphone, gaming devices, and other gadgets. Showing up more and more, this modern interface is a powerful selection.
Luxurious bathrooms are another hot trend. With the affordability of high-end spa equipment, many homeowners are choosing to outfit their personal bathrooms as nicely as a salon. These amenities and fixtures, once only available at busy commercial sites, are becoming more and more common.
Sustainable building materials are also rising in popularity. In an effort to go greener and greener, energy efficiency is now an assumption rather than an add-on. Frugal is the new sexy.
