So, this is an opportunity to take a look at those pieces that you admire and find a way to bring it all together into a functional and beautiful kitchen remodeling project.
You can look at counter tops until you find the right options for you. You can look at appliances for style, name brand, and color. You can even look at everything from sky lights, pot racks, cabinet doors, and every type of flooring until you find just the right color, texture, pattern, and size for the heart of your home. After all, it will be your dream kitchen remodeling project, when it is all said and done.
Five of the hottest trends in kitchen remodeling have to do with finding your own style in the midst of all of the inspiration that is available in books, magazines, television, and film these days.
The first, trending topic is low maintenance renovation. Homeowners like you want a beautiful kitchen without a lot of fuss. You don’t want to spend more time caring for your countertops than using them. You want more storage and you just want more space.
The second, trending topic is details. The details of your kitchen’s crown molding, cabinet hardware, sink, faucet fixtures, and accessories add to a space, as well. A kitchen remodeling doesn’t have to be about taking down a wall, rearranging the layout, or gutting the entire room and starting over. It can just be about change.
The third, trending topic is applying the uses of your kitchen with ease. This is when technology meets culinary arts with the latest appliances and home office applications to make the time you spend in this room more useful with task lighting, computers, and appliances with memory and finite temperature control.
The fourth, trending topic is the use of color to make the kitchen a comfortable, but lively room to be in. Stick with dark and natural beige and brown tones on cabinets and countertops, while color accents in accessories, such as barstools, dining set, curtains, glassware, etc., can provide endless options.
The fifth, and most important trending topic in kitchen remodeling is that it is still the room with the most significant value when it comes to home renovations.
