Following the 2019 International Builders' Show, the team at John Burns Real Estate Consulting (JBREC) identified the top 5 product design trends for the year. 

Bold colors, expanded Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, textured surfaces, thin and compact sizing, and water-consciousness were the five major product design trends JBREC highlighted from the show that builders should be conscious of, and may indicate the trajectory of building product trends into the future.
