MULTIPLE FINISH COLORS…Choices on finishing today is endless & mind boggling. Mixing finishes is a very unique look. Upper cabinets finished in painted white, while base is stained wood. It’s all about interesting combinations, combining different bits & pieces. Making an island a different finish is a big bold statement. Since the island is more like a piece of furniture. This trend is more about expression of the desire for more personality.
MOVE OVER DOUBLE BOWL SINKS…Today’s kitchens are being designed with large single bowl sinks or multiple sinks. The farmhouse design is always popular. These are great for larger cookware, cookie sheets & stockpots. Prep sinks are great at the end of a run of kitchen cabinets or island. This allows multiple people to work at the same time. Faucet design has become unique fun!!! A unique faucet can add a pop of style & color to your kitchen. Pot filler faucets are very popular & useful. These are over your cooktop area with a very long spout with instant hot water.
CABINET LIGHTING…LED has taken over the incandescent bulbs. These have a brighter but cooler, softer light they put off. They can be very bright, so make sure to check your wattage per the light fixture recommendations. This is a great way to add some accent lighting around the kitchen without using all the overhead fixtures.
BUILT IN APPLIANCES…These are designed with the look of fitting flush and disappearing into the surrounding cabinetry. This gives a streamlined look & design. Make sure that your cabinets have been built accordingly for this. This is not a usual standard for cabinet design.
CABINETRY WITH FURNITURE FLAIR…Kitchen cabinets should never be boring. Especially since this is the heart of the home. A tall pantry can be turned into a hutch or armoire looking piece.
