Kitchens today are no longer just for cooking and eating. They have become a central gathering place for entertaining, conversation, homework and games, in addition to food preparation and mealtimes. With so much time spent in one room, you deserve an eye-catching, yet comfortable kitchen that you are proud to display. As more attention is paid to this multi-purpose room, there are a plethora of ideas on how to update or transform your current space.
Colors to Countertops Transform Kitchens
Many kitchen remodelers, such as Desirable Kitchens & Refacing located in Pittsburgh, have been consistent trends for 2017. The updates and transformations range from colors to countertops to technology.
Greige is the New White – While white kitchens still remain popular, many kitchens are making a color transformation to shades of grey and beige, or a combination of the two – “greige”. These warmer tones allow for the kitchen to become an extension of the living and dining rooms.
Black & White – other homeowners are going with more of the high contrast approach keeping it simple with black and white.
Sinks with Color – once only known to be white or stainless steel, today’s kitchen sinks are seeing a surge in colors. Especially in kitchens with neutral hues, the pop of color makes for a unique update.
Bold Fixtures – bigger, brighter and bolder fixtures are making a statement in kitchens this year. From lighting to faucets to cabinet accents, the use of chrome and nickel provide a less utilitarian approach to the modern day kitchen.
Quartz countertops – becoming a favorite of busy cooks, quartz countertops are a must have for a kitchen with a lot of traffic. Known for its resistance to heat, scratches and spills, quartz is a smart update for many families.
Storage – many homeowners are looking for more customized solutions for storage, such as pull-out waste and recycling cabinets and multi-tiered drawers.
Technology & Automation – With today’s advances in technology, kitchens are becoming more automated. From the popular hands-free faucet to sensor-activated kitchen lights, these updates are perfect for families, especially with small children unable to reach the faucet handles or light switches.
