See what’s hot in modern home design trends for 2014!

7: The Tech-friendly Home

Sleek mobile devices reign in the modern home—from iPad to iPhone to google glasses, there’s a LOT that needs charging. That’s why we’re seeing an influx of  U-Socket wall plugs with built-in USB ports  popping up throughout modern architecture this year. Homeowners can charge devices from nearly any room without clunky usb to wall-port adapters. The U-Socket also knows when your device is fully charged so it can turn off the power accordingly, preventing the endless energy drain of the past.

4:  Curbless Showers

Showers are becoming more popular than tubs, particularly in modern homes in 2014. And what’s even hotter than a chic shower? A curbless one. Showers feel more like a spa sans the traditional “curb” baring inside the shower from outside.

3601 Euclid Avenue

17 Winding Lake Drive

6854 La Vista Drive

3:  Straight-lined Kitchens

This year is all about clean, smooth lines. The biggest example of this? The straight-lined kitchen. Seen head-on, this sleek kitchen feels uninterrupted, usually having minimal hanging cabinets to distract the eye.

Downsizing doesn’t mean compromising. That’s why going smaller is all about going smarter in 2014. Efficient use of space coupled with lots of natural light dominates modern architecture trends this year.
