When your kitchen is in need of some desperate remodeling and updating, you may be wondering where to start. There are so many ways to enhance and alter a kitchen. With so many options, some people are unsure and a little overwhelmed. Texas Home Solutions / Bath Vision would like to help by sharing this year’s major remodeling trends and what other people have done to renew their home’s kitchens.
Smart Kitchen Upgrades
With modern technology you can have an enhanced kitchen that is more convenient and efficient. A smart kitchen doesn’t mean installing every single gadget that can connect to your phone. Instead, sensor faucets, lighting and more efficient appliances are the essence of a smart kitchen. There is an ever growing need to use less water and energy. When remodeling the kitchen, consider sensor or touch faucets or low flow faucets which adds convenience along with efficiency. There are appliances such as programmable coffee makers that switch off when not in use. Another major trend is installing skylights in the kitchen to allow natural light during the day, removing the need for artificial lighting during the daylight hours. When investing in a kitchen remodel, look for the many ways you can have a smart kitchen.
Replacing or Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets
When remodeling a kitchen, it is common to replace or refinish the cabinets. Darker cabinets is this years’ major trend, combined with lighter colored walls and countertops. However, cabinet replacement is often more common since there are more unique storage options and cabinet designs available. There are thin pop-out spice cabinets, built-in organizers for pots and pans and other cooking utensils. Many homeowners love the newer cabinet designs, their function and better efficiency.
Quartz or Granite Countertops
Many kitchen remodeling projects often have the countertops replaced with a solid piece of quartz or granite stone. Both granite and quartz are one of the more durable natural stones and don’t scratch or stain like marble or other softer stones. On the hardness scale, granite and quartz are a seven with diamond being at a 10. The solid piece of stone makes cleaning much easier than older countertops that are created with tile and grout. Natural stone countertops are also very beautiful and are in high demand.
Modern Kitchen Island
Kitchen islands are often enhanced or added during kitchen remodeling. Kitchen islands help provide additional cooking space and serve as an informal eating area. Kitchen islands can serve as additional storage space too. You can find many unique kitchen island designs. Some are flat with bottom cabinets. Other islands have a bar pop out for a small dining area. Other kitchen islands are large enough to serve as the dining area, re-purposing the formal dining room or area.
