51% of You Want a Smarter Kitchen

The breakfast bar of the HGTV Smart Home 2014 kitchen may unseat the island as centerpiece of the room. It's equipped with custom cabinetry to make the most efficient use of storage, a TV mounted into the cabinetry, and a built-in stainless steel coffee maker, freeing up precious counter space for the room's primary focus, cooking! And, of course, it has gadgetry like surround sound speakers to make meal prep fun, a motion-sensing faucet, and plenty of outlets for all those extra appliances and gizmos.

8% of You Want a Smarter Bathroom

Serenity is the name of the game in the master bathroom, which pairs relaxing colors with modern amenities. Two remotes offer programmable settings in the shower, so the homeowner can run and pre-heat it before ever stepping foot on the tile floor. And I have no words for that in-shower TV.
