When it comes to home design and decorating trends, there are some we’re glad to see go – like salmon-colored toilets and the ever popular matching wallpaper/window treatment/upholstered headboard combo. Then there are those we wish we had all along; trends that make our homes more beautiful, more energy-efficient, and more functional.

Here are just a few building and design ideas that we think will stand the test of time.nicekitchen

  • Kitchen cabinets that go all the way up to the ceiling, making use of all the vertical space and eliminating dust – or clutter – collecting tops.
  • Deep cabinet drawers instead of doors that allow you to store and easily access more kitchen necessities.
  • Once found in older homes, pocket doors are making a comeback, especially where opening a door causes it to slam into another door or a piece of furniture.
  • The best of both worlds, a gas starter for a wood-burning fireplace allows you to start a fire with ease.
  • Discreetly placing kitchen electrical outlets under hanging cabinets allows that beautiful backsplash to get all the attention it deserves.
  • Say good-bye to getting wet while turning on the shower with more convenient placement of shower and tub fixtures.
  • Decorative floor vent covers in classic or contemporary designs and finishes add a little pizzazz, while flush-mount wood or tile vents that match the floor offer an eye-pleasing, seamless look.
