We've been polling our design crew at ADR Builders and have come up with the three best new remodeling trends for the start of 2014...
1. - The U-Socket
Digital devices reign in most households, so the new U-Socket wall plug has two built-in USB ports to power devices including smart phones, gaming devices, digital cameras, and tablets. The U-Socket also has a smart sensor that allows it to shut off when the device is fully charged.
2. - The Spa Shower
More and more people are forgoing a tub and opting for a large and luxurious walk in shower. Features like large niches and benches, multiple shower heads and frame-less glass enclosures make your bathroom feel like a spa retreat. Heated tile floors are another very popular luxury addition.
3. - Open Floor Plans
Our world is becoming more and more social and interconnected, home design reflects that. Many people value an open floor plan, merging kitchen, dining and living areas into one space. Especially in urban environments where rooms can be tight, this type of design is a great way to squeeze as much breathing room as possible out of a small space.
