As we enter a new year, it’s important to examine the ever-changing
design market to find out what’s in style. In this blog, we’ll be focusing on what
we like to call the hub of the home. Yes, we’re talking about the kitchen,
which has become one of if not the most popular spaces to renovate. Not only because
it adds tremendous value when it comes time to sell but it provides homeowners
with a place to gather and break bread with family and friends.
Designers are starting to work more closely with their clients to accommodate specific needs or wants by incorporating customizable features into their layouts. For example, there’s an increasing demand for larger islands that are designed with enough space to accommodate more people for both dining and entertainment purposes, reducing the need for formal dining rooms.
Homeowners are also falling in love with the idea of walk-in pantries built right off the kitchen. These provide additional storage for food, smaller appliances, and cooking supplies which helps to reduce clutter as well.
Another unique feature that can add some class to any kitchen is the statement hood. When incorporated nicely into the overall design, it acts as a centerpiece and will no doubt be a great conversation point for all guests.
Get In Touch With Nature
In terms of colors, more people are starting to move toward warmer earthy tones like greens and blues to give a sense of calmness and bring the outdoors in. When it comes to materials, stone countertops including quartz and marble combined with natural wood cabinets follow this trend as well.
In this age of technology that we currently live in, home features are no exception. The introduction and development of smart appliances allows you to conveniently control almost everything through the use of apps or even voice control. Many are also built with energy efficient properties that will keep costs down. In addition, touchless faucets have gained a lot of notoriety over the last year or two following the COVID-19 pandemic.
