By June 29, 2017January 7th, 2019No Comments

Is it time for you to do a little something with that dull boring kitchen? With these popular and current trends you can make your kitchen an inviting atmosphere that represents your lifestyle.


Grey is the new white:

Wondering which color to paint your kitchen cabinets? Manufacturers say that while white cabinets continue to be tops, gray is not coming in not too far behind and could possibly break through to take the #1 spot. A trendy kitchen design is to combine cabinet colors. This gives a modern yet, charming feel to your kitchen. The best part is that this style does not seem to be going away anytime soon!



Choosing Bold Fixtures:

Bold Fixtures can give a great sense of depth especially in a room with lower ceilings. Its all about adding that “wow” factor to your home and kitchen.




Maximizing Kitchen Storage

Kitchen storage is a huge issue, especially a big problem for homeowners that have smaller kitchens that are lacking the room to spread out. Manufacturers are now starting to double up storage in custom kitchens by creating multi-tiered drawers. These drawers give the homeowners the ability to store more items or goods in a drawer that would previously be full of wasted space.


Add In Automation

Automation used to be a thing of the future. The future is here and it is time to embrace it. Examples of things to update in your kitchen could be: Sensor activated lights, hand-free faucets, or motion-activated trashcans. Have you ever wished you had a third hand for when your hands are full and you just can’t quite reach the knob on the sink? This may just do the trick.


Counter tops

Have your tile or laminate counter tops seen better days? If you’re tired of cleaning crumbs or from grout lines, or are numbed by the dull, matte look of your ages-old laminate counters, chances are your kitchen counters can benefit from a complete refresh.
Granite is one of the most popular kitchen countertop options in residential kitchens. You’ll find an overwhelming number of colors and patterns to choose from, whether you choose stone or stone-look, so you’re bound to find the look that fits your style. See some of our options in our gallery.
