Today’s technology, combined with innovative approaches to using space, is opening the door to an endless array of home design options. Pet owners are creating in-home dog-washing stations and millennials favor upper kitchen cabinets that lower to the counter with the touch of a button.

According to an article in The Washington Post, Millennials have home design tastes that step outside the usual, and typically incorporate creative technology features. These trends include artisan hand-baked clay tiles as a kitchen backsplash, and a bathroom exhaust fan that turns on and off through a sensor.

No matter what your home style preferences are, there are options for everyone!
