Over the years the kitchen has become the central hub of the home, for everything from cooking to doing homework. Therefore, it needs to be easy to use, organized, and innovative. The popular kitchen remodeling trends of the year are helping to achieve all of these things. While the trends haven’t changed dramatically from last year, Kitchen Remodeling has definitely become more affordable as a result of mass marketing and competition in production. Let’s take a look at the most popular kitchen remodeling trends for this year.
This year, it is all about kitchen remodeling for wide open spaces and bringing the living space into the kitchen. Instead of having a kitchen that is closed off from the rest of the house, homeowners are knocking down walls and turning the kitchen and family room into one large room. This allows the person cooking to interact with the rest of the family, as well as providing an open floor plan. In most cases, there is a kitchen island that separates the kitchen from the family room. Homeowners are also adding bar stools at the island so that families can sit and chat with the person cooking while still having access to the television or other activities in the family room.
Semi-custom cabinets are giving kitchen remodeling the look and feel of pieces of furniture rather than just looking like cabinets. Many manufactures are adding fluted columns, claw feet, and detailed moldings to help create the illusion of hand crafted kitchen cabinets at a much more affordable price. Solid hardwood is also all the rage right now, especially dark colors such as cherry or maple. Many designers have been quoted saying that their main vision is to bring elegance and class into an informal atmosphere during kitchen remodeling.
Sinks and Countertops
Top mounted sinks are a thing of the past. Under mounted sinks are the newest trend for kitchen remodeling projects. The bowl of the sink is attached underneath the countertop. Unlike top mounted sinks, which have the lip of the sink showing on top of the counter, an under mounted sink has clean lines and invisible sink lines. This allows the homeowner to avoid getting dirt and grime down in the cracks of the sink, and instead wipe it into the sink. It is hard to tell where the sink begins and where the countertop ends. The industrial style sinks that are in many restaurants are a popular trend as well for kitchen remodeling. It is a free standing fixture with three wash basins and legs to add height.
Natural stone is still the popular countertop choice this year, granite in particular. This is because it is durable and especially easy to keep clean. Limestone is also making a popular appearance among some countertop designers. A new innovative approach is using different materials in different areas of the kitchen, for example using granite or limestone on some countertops, butcher block for the kitchen island, and concrete on others.
