Cabinets: If you are interested in having painted cabinets in your kitchen remodel, gray is now the new white. White cabinets are still highly desirable and popular but kitchen industries are starting to sell more and more gray cabinets to clients. Along with gray cabinets, hues of chocolate and espresso are trending. These are darker colors that are usually not painted cabinets, but rather stained cabinets. The most popular door style right now is the shaker, which is just a very simple door with a rectangular design right in the center. It offers a clean and simple design that offers versatility when it comes to other sections in the kitchen.
Sinks: Now if you never plan on selling your home, you could consider this bold, popular kitchen trend that has just recently hit the market: fresh hues for sinks. They work best with white or gray cabinet remodels. You can consider lime green or red for your sink color to add some creativity and boldness to the design. Walking into your kitchen and seeing your favorite color everyday will surely brighten your day. If you are not into color schemes that stand out, try lighter hues that still offer a hint of color, but will not overwhelm you.
Countertops: When it comes to the countertops in a kitchen remodel, quartz and granite are still the front runners, quartz especially. A lot of people are leaning towards the cleaner quartz tops that just have a little pop of sparkle or a few grains running throughout the countertops. This allows clients to choose bolder cabinets and fixtures that still mesh well with their new tops.
Plumbing Fixtures: The most popular finish we are seeing at Stevens Kitchens for plumbing fixtures is oil-rubbed bronze, it matches with most cabinet colors or countertop colors, so I am not surprised. Also, the touch 2.0 technology for faucets is making it's way to the kitchen remodeling world because of its high functionality for the extreme cooker, check out this video here to learn more about touch 2.0 technology faucets. Here at Stevens Kitchens we highly recommend purchasing plumbing fixtures from us. We carry Delta, Kohler, and Brizo because you really get the quality you pay for.
If you keep your kitchen remodel simple and clean, you have a much better chance of it not going out of style. Which is what you want, you want a timeless kitchen that way if you ever do plan to sell your home it appeals to more home-buyers, and certain bold or outdated features will not scare buyers off.
