Home Design Trend Predictions for 2014

Sheila Schmitz, editor for Houzz.com recently shared her eight home-design trend predictions for 2014 with Details Magazine. A few highlights:
Black is the New Gray. Black is the new color darling for 2014. In a Houzz poll, 74 percent of homeowners admitted to being a fan of black rooms, from bathrooms and kitchens (with crisp white fixtures) to interior doors and exterior siding.
Metal Backsplashes. Tile remains the most popular backsplash material according to the Houzz Kitchen Remodeling Survey, but people are increasingly selecting metal tiles and other sheet materials including stainless steel, glass, and stone slab—it looks sleek and makes for easy cleaning.What do you think?
