The tastes of homeowners are constantly changing, and in 2014 home builders are looking to reflect the changing tastes of the consumer with new designs and additions to new single-family homes.

What did they find? Read on to find out!


Popular Features in New Single-Family Homes in 2014

A Walk-In Closet in the Master Bedroom

Walk-in closets are great for both form and function, giving the master bedroom an even more spacious feel, and adding plenty of space for clothing and other storage in the bedroom. No need to fumble around in a small closet for a lost article of clothing when you can walk right in to everything perfectly organized.

Low-E Windows

Low-e (which stands for low emissivity) windows are quickly gaining popularity in new homes and as replacement windows in old homes. The function of low-e windows is highly customizable: you can get windows that let in low amounts of UV light, prevent fading, and improve insulation. Low-e windows take energy efficiency to the next step.

Laundry Room

Dedicated rooms for laundry keep the clutter and mess out of other rooms in the home and help you stay more organized.

Great Room

A great room can fill the role of several rooms including a family room and study. Commonly built with high ceilings, great rooms can serve as a beautiful centerpiece of your living space.
