There are several ways to find out what people are looking for in houses.

First, go talk to a good real estate agent. Realtors are talking with homebuyers daily.

Second, talk to a new home builder. They are also getting feedback on design from prospective homebuyers every day.

Third, visit new housing developments and look at what is being offered in new homes. Walk through the houses and get a “feel” for the flow of access in the house.

You can also find out about what people are looking for by visiting new home and real estate web sites.

You will get trend information by reviewing new home and home magazines. Most of these types of magazines have regular articles and ads about the latest trends in home design.
