The kitchen is the most utilized room and you want your kitchen to look its best.
For the next several years, we expect transitional kitchens to continue growing strong. A transitional style kitchen incorporates both traditional and contemporary elements and design. This includes a simple, clean, and minimalistic and uncluttered look or commonly known as a shaker style kitchen. Whereas a contemporary kitchen design is modern and includes innovative design, newest technology, simultaneously using recycled materials.
If you are looking for a complete transformation of your kitchen, consider these trends and bring your kitchen remodel into the 21st century and give us a call!
LIGHT-COLORED KITCHEN CABINETS ARE IN
The kitchen cabinets industry’s manufacturers say that while grain and wood-like cabinets are still popular, the growing trend is gray, white and cream-colored kitchen cabinets. And we agree – just check out our recent kitchen renovations over the past couple years which incorporate this trend.
HIGH CONTRAST OR DUAL-COLOR CABINETS
Are light-colored cabinets not your thing? Have you given any thought to a high-contrast kitchen design? Do you love red hues? How about incorporating dark cherry cabinets with a neutral color paint or backsplash and beige-colored countertops? Have you thought about a dual-tone kitchen? Can you picture all white wall-mounted cabinets with black or dark-colored base cabinets? How about solid-color lacquer cabinets? Have you considered a rustic hardwood floor? The two-tone look creates drama and displays a balance between light and dark spaces.
Both of the above trends emphasize an individualized look – don’t go for the cookie-cutter kitchen design. Create a unique space, one that highlights your style, personality and life.
A FRESH LOOK FOR KITCHEN LINKS
Another growing trend is an eye-catching farmhouse sink or apron-front sink. Whether pure white or dazzling lime green, homeowners are shying away from the dull basic white or stainless steel. This is a great option for small kitchens or just to create a fabulous focal point.
AND CONTINUING TO THE SINK’S COMPANION – THE KITCHEN COUNTERTOP
Tired of granite, marble or other natural stone? Quartz continues to be the prevalent choice for countertops. Quartz is durable, non-porous and resistant to heat, spills, scratches and overall, busy families. They come in a myriad of colors and styles. Another top choice is wood countertops. They look beautiful and offer a homey, soft, as well as modern wood-look in the kitchen.
KEEP KITCHEN FUNCTIONALITY AND STORAGE IN MIND
Like everything else, kitchen cabinets are changing. Today, most cabinet manufacturers offer hydraulic, quiet and easy-to-close doors and drawers, pullout shelving units, multi-tiered drawers, interior illumination for better visibility, roll-out bins, built-in chopping blocks, docking stations for electronics, extra preparation space for cooking, clever corner cabinets (a/k/a lazy Susan), etc. Integrate a few of these ideas into your new kitchen!
KITCHEN APPLIANCES – SO MANY OPTIONS
Stainless steel still seems to control the market, whether in silver or black, white and gray are becoming more popular. However, speaking of functionality, freezer-on-bottom refrigerators are increasing in sales and so are cooktop and wall-oven combinations. However capricious your wants, try focusing on keeping it simple and classic: Choose appliances that will add to your kitchen, not overwhelm it.
