Updating your kitchen can be a great way to add value to your home. A modern, appealing kitchen is a main selling point for today's buyers. Here are a few of today's top trends in kitchen designs:
Light Gray. Light gray can be softer and more dynamic than harsh white. Gray can easily be combined with pops of color to add character to your kitchen.
Bright Appliances. While stainless steel appliances have long been a popular trend, appliances in bright colors are quickly emerging as a top trend. This can be an easy way to add an individual and unique flair.
Go Bold. Bold fixtures are a great way to make a simple statement in your kitchen. Oversized light fixtures in dramatic colors can create a rich, luxurious feel and add depth to the room.
Store it. Storage space in a kitchen is important, so maximizing storage is always appreciated. Custom, multi-tiered drawers are a clever way to add additional kitchen storage.
Imitation is Flattery. There is no doubt about it, granite counter tops are still in style. They can be expensive though, so an easy way to mimic the look without blowing your entire renovation budget is to use a look-alike laminate.
Unified Style. Make sure your kitchen matches the atmosphere of the rest of your home. An ultra-modern kitchen with a more classically styled home can be jarring. Simple touches and fixtures can bring together your home's style harmoniously.
Warm Metal. Stainless steel can be a bit cold and industrial-feeling at times. Brass or copper-colored fixtures can add a touch of warmth to your kitchen with minimal effort. Your sink, lighting and drawer pulls are great opportunities to add some warmer metallic finishes.
Simple Statements. Some looks will never go out of style — like the classic Shaker-inspired kitchens. Rich, textural woods and sensible functionality are always a good investment.
