In most homes the kitchen is a primary gathering place and that may become even more so after HGTV announced the kitchen to be the new family room. The team at Kansas City Remodel heartily agrees, especially when you consider how much time most of us spend in the kitchen. A warm and inviting kitchen is the perfect place to create a meal and catch-up with the ones that you love. Knowing that the world of design never rests for long, Kansas City Remodel went in search of the latest decorating and remodeling trends for the kitchen. Below is a recap of some of our favorite and most approachable kitchen remodeling trends.
After years of brightly colored contemporary kitchens, the color pallet for the modern kitchen is going neutral. Designers suggest monochromatic coordination for walls, floors and countertops. One nice thing about this trend is that it’s a look that’s not likely to go out of style any time soon. Consider the timeless look of white cabinets and black fixtures or gleaming black granite countertops in an all-white kitchen.
When it comes to kitchen remodeling updates, some of the easiest things to change quickly are fixtures. Start with the items that you use most in your kitchen and work from there. An updated sink can provide a quick modernization and is available in a range of colors and materials. This season look for the continued presence of stainless steel, granite composite or try one of the new colored sinks to provide a splash of color. Under cabinet lighting and updated kitchen hardware are other quick updates that will make a kitchen space feel new.
Considering the time we spend in the kitchen, it’s reasonable to think that we’re probably using the space for more than just cooking. Today, kitchen space multitasks as a home office, a spot for doing homework and a catch-all repository for all of the electronics, paperwork and misc. items that get dumped on the way through the door. Taking into account all of these uses, a kitchen remodel to a island could be a great way to add more counter space for a home office or storage space for counter appliances and pet-related items. While you’re at it, designate another space for all of the technology in the house, adding one location for the phones, tablets, laptops and gaming consoles to be gathered and charged in one place.
