Designers Northwest, Inc.

As an award winning full service kitchen and bathroom remodeling company, Designers Northwest provides a wide array of design options for our clients. Here are some of the trends for 2014.

Smart Homes: Electronic devices reign in most households which creates the need to provide a way to integrate these new devices into our homes. When remodeling your kitchen, new under counter plug strips such as the Legrand Adorne system allows home owners to connect electronic devices such as your iPhones and iPads to built in USB ports for charging. The U-Socket wall plug has two built-in USB ports to power devices including iPhones, gaming devices, digital cameras, Kindles and iPads. The U-Socket also has a smart sensor that allows it to shut off when the device is fully charged.

Barrier Free Showers: When planning ahead for future bathroom remodels, we see homeowners are looking for ways to stay in their homes longer as we age. Bathrooms can be made more accessible by removing barriers such as shower curbs. Curb-less showers are becoming increasingly more popular.

Stand Alone Tubs: If homeowners want a tub experience in 2014, it’s likely they will select a free standing tub as a structural element, which takes up much less space in the room than the old tiled-in tub deck.

Eco-friendly Cabinets: With a rise in inquiries from people with chemical sensitivity, designing your kitchen remodel around Earth-friendly products. Cabinets with no added formaldehyde and non-toxic glues, binders, and finishes provides a healthy choice for your home.
