As we speed into the new year, let’s take a look at some of the hottest trends we’ve been seeing in kitchen remodeling ideas.
To reduce clutter and open up your kitchen space, new designs are sparse, yet add more storage. The traditional (and eternally popular) white is being replaced by lighter shades of grey and even warmer color palettes. Minimalist faucets and hidden appliances are other ways to express this trend.
Instead of traditional hardware sets, designers are creating a more eclectic, postmodern design with a variety of different shapes and finishes for handles and faucets. Copper, pewter, or brass can give each area of the kitchen its own unique personality.
Quartz is king
With a dazzling variety of colors and styles, quartz countertops are extremely versatile. They’re also heat and stain resistant, never need sealing, and require very little maintenance other than mild soap and water. More and more of our clients are turning to quartz counters made by Caesarstone™, Zodiaq™ by Dupont, Silestone™, and Cambria™.
Homeowners are emulating industrial kitchen spaces with lots of counter space, stainless steel sinks, and heavy-duty appliances. A mix of stones for surfaces and backsplash can give it a more personal touch.
More options for recycled/repurposed kitchen counters are available than ever before. Because these can qualify for LEED certification, many homeowners and builders are embracing them.
