Re-thinking the kitchen
Food doesn’t just come from the grocery store anymore. Many homeowners grow food in their gardens and have taken to canning their produce. New kitchen designs often include added space for storing vegetables from your garden and your canning equipment. High-temperature cooking options, induction ovens, and com- bination ovens are also becoming more and more popular.
Be cautious about the connected home
The new technology for controlling your HVAC system, home entertainment system, and other electronic features is con- venient, but it does come with some risk. Technology moves extremely fast, and what once seemed cutting edge can quickly be abandoned by the manufacturer, leaving you without many options for updates, maintenance, and replacements. Be sure to do your research.
Gray is anything but dull
Cool shades of gray are an extremely popular choice for interiors. Other popular paint colors in newer homes include chocolate brown, teal, and yellow. Try something new and see how it upgrades your space.
