The digital age is here in a big way, and upgrades to the typical electrical socket are a big example of this. New U-sockets are being installed in homes, containing a couple of USB ports to help users charge their electronic cameras, cell phones and other devices without using a three-pronged plug. Many of these sockets also have smart features which turn off the electrical current when the device is finished charging, which reduces electrical waste.
Bathrooms are another area of the house that will receive a much newer look in the future, even if some of these new remodeling concepts echo designs from generations past. More and more, people are opting for stand-alone tubs, which take up much less space in a room than the tiled bath deck that many suburban residents are used to. Curbless showers and automatic faucets are also being installed to improve bathrooms in multi-generational homes that may be used by young and old alike, living in the same residence.

At the same time, some layering of paints or textiles is being used by many to create a personal aesthetic inside of a home that is self-expressive without being egregious.
