Kitchen Remodel Designs -Latest Trends In The Market

 

The Open Concept Is Still Popular

 

Perhaps, one of the most fundamental kitchen design ideas has been the open concept.

In the past, kitchens were located at an area that was disconnected from other rooms, generally in the back of the home. But in the modern interiors, kitchens open up directly into the living space, and this trend is not going anywhere. In fact, appliance designers are coming up with innovative and creative ideas to blend appliances seamlessly into the family room. Using different concepts or finishes can make any open kitchen look like an integral part of the living room.

 

Neutral Colors Do Beat Bright Colors

 

Neutral palettes continue to dominate contemporary homes. Even though colorful painted kitchen cabinets are still a popular choice, most designers and homeowners still prefer painting them white. Whether it is arctic white or antique white, the homeowner just love the idea of having a kitchen that looks and feels bright. Sandy and gray tones are also popular. But if you’re inclined towards bold colors, you can always use them in small details, such as in throw pillows, back splash, rugs or lighting.

 

Bid Goodbye To Granite And Say Hello To Quartz

 

As far as kitchen countertops are concerned, factory-engineered quartz is the new trend popping up in the market. In fact, Quartz is the new Granite. While granite has been considered to be the most popular countertop material, quartz is starting to take over the business.

 

Quartz has the same feel and look as granite, but seems a more practical option. Quartz is more durable, resists cracking and chipping better than granite, and it is easy to clean due to non-porous property.

 

Quick And Economical Ways To Change The Design

 

Even if you’re low on budget and expensive trends do not suit your pocket, then follow the below given affordable trends to give instant boost to your kitchen. These small, yet effective changes will go a long way towards making you feel more uplifted and organized in your new kitchen.

You can easily buy a good quality vintage light fixture for as low as $20. Don’t forget about putting some light under your cabinets to bring some dramatic changes in your kitchen.

 

Change Shelf-Liners And Add Rugs

 

When was the last time you got new shelf-liners? Laying down fresh pieces of non-stick liners will make you keep everything organized in your kitchen and clean the countertop as well so everything looks fresh and clean. There are numerous uses of non-slip liners and you can always use as many colors as you want to give your kitchen a boost.
