1. Going Green: Homeowners continue to be environmentally conscious by incorporating sustainable elements into their home design.

3. Let The Sun Shine: Reflective tile backsplashes and light granite countertops will give any kitchen the illusion of more light and space.
4. Back to Earth: Incorporating earth tones into the kitchen for a tranquil and serene sensation will be popular again in 2014.
5. Mixed Metals: Lustrous countertops with metallic influences such as silver fixtures and accents complemented by a mosaic backsplash with 24k gold tiles for a touch of glamour will be on trend for bathrooms.
