Five Hot Trends For 2014 Spring Renovations
Posted By: 
Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Nice weather is nearly upon us. Soon it will be time to throw open the windows and doors, roll up our shirt sleeves, and get to work on the home renovations we’ve been dreaming up, all winter long. Here are five hot topics to get you started.

Let this be the year you make your home as beautiful as it can be!

1. Modern Kitchens
The kitchen is the heart of the home, where people mix and mingle, catch up and enjoy delightful cooking smells. Realizing this, many designers are replacing the rustic look with modern elegance, signaling a return to glamour as well as efficiency. This means inlaid appliances, with bronze or chrome fixtures and an increase in vertical storage.

2. Vintage Chic
While the kitchen may be going ultra-modern, the rest of the house may be going retro as a response, perhaps as a way to retain some warmth and individuality. As style blogger Lindsay Souza, from, put it, “Thanks to social media, the lifespan of a trend has been cut in half. We're all a little overexposed. I think vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces will be highly sought after. It's the curiosities that make a house a home and keep your guests asking: ‘Where did you get that?’”

3. Colors
Designers and homeowners are getting bolder and more imaginative with colors, making Christian May of, dare to hope, “Of course I hopefully predict that color will be the trend story every year in hopes of banishing the boring beige box, but this year it really could happen!” Green Flash, Lemon Zest, Nectarine and Rouge Red are the popular choices from Pantone, the leading authority on color, and monochromatic rooms, as well as striking combinations are predicted to WOW. Blues are predicted to be the hottest sellers.

4. Sustainability
Of course, there’s nothing new about striving for a greener life, but sustainability continues to be high on people’s lists of goals. Reclaimed material, more renewable resources, such as bamboo, energy efficient appliances, windows and doors, and long-lasting fixtures will continue to be popular.

5. Integrated Technology
As we all continue to integrate technology in our lives, the top design trend of 2014 is the U-socket, which has two built-in USB ports to power devices including iPhones, gaming devices, digital cameras, Kindles and iPads... and features a smart sensor that allows it to shut off when the device is fully charged. Finally, we are finding a balance between the way things were, and the way things will be.
