Kitchen Remodel Trends
In most homes, especially in the South, the kitchen is the heart and soul. So doesn’t the room where you can create and serve meals full of love deserve a little love itself? If you’re thinking of showing your kitchen a little love in the form of a remodel, here are some of the most popular trends this year.
As mentioned, the kitchen is the heart and soul of many homes. In order to make that even more true, kitchens are being subtly integrated with living rooms to allow for maximum coziness. This is accomplished by creating hidden and integrated appliances.
Maybe it’s due to the public fascination with cooking shows, but industrial, metal kitchen accessories are in fashion. While this isn’t a new trend, the metals of choice are changing. Whereas before, traditional metals like stainless steel were the most popular, now the more muted bronze and copper are the metals of choice.
Muted Color Pallets
To offset the bold metal accessories, kitchens are increasingly being decorated in soft grays, blues, greens, and yellows. This is a change from a trend towards white kitchens over the past few years.
Overhead lights are so last year. The new trend is to create subdued, gentle lighting within and around the cabinets. This creates a simple elegance.
Technology is barreling full speed ahead, and the kitchen isn’t safe from this. Integrated charging stations, automated cabinets, and hands-free kitchen sinks are just some of the ways our kitchens are becoming smarter.
Hopefully, these new trends will give you an idea how to update your kitchen to reflect its importance in your home. Whether it’s just one of these trends or all of them, your family and friends will appreciate the effort.
