2. Condo and Row Home Construction
Condo and row home construction is expected to be the rage in 2014. As more people are downsizing to prepare for an aging economy, row homes and condominiums are expected to be purchased more in the future. Single-family homes are also popular.
3. Trendy Kitchens
Black countertops in granite and quartz are some of the more popular choices in trendy kitchens. Marble and light grey counters are popular and will provide some contrast in a room that includes complementary wall and tile colors.
4. New Shelving Designs
Open shelves and glass-front cabinetry debuted in previous years, but they are still coveted in design in the new year. Frosted glass is popular and is considered very trendy. Copper and deep red colors are popular, but they often make the rooms feel smaller.
5. Construction Includes Space for Larger Refrigerators

6. Spa-Like Baths

Freestanding architectural tubs with cascading waterfall faucets are commonly integrated into spa-like bathrooms. Homeowners are excited about these rectangular bathtubs with clean lines and dark wood and stainless steel or brushed nickel accents.
