Kitchen Remodeling Design Trends
In home improvements the kitchen is at the heart of all renovations. Homeowners want to keep their kitchens function, up to date and in great shape. This will keep the value of your home at its peak. When looking to increase the overall value of a home people will look to remodel their kitchens. Keep these renovations in mind when looking at ways to make your home appeal to future buyers.
Functional Kitchen Islands
Kitchen islands that do more than provide a space to sit or prep food are the latest rage in kitchen design. An island that includes a combination of kitchen desires such as a separate prep sink, a wine cooler, additional cupboard space or a wine cooler increase the value of your kitchen to your home. Adding storage space in a kitchen under an island is also a valuable way to use space that is often wasted. Extra seating is a bonus in the kitchen area as well.
With the introduction of specialty coffees and coffee makers kitchen spaces that entertain this fad are more popular than ever in kitchen renovations. A coffee center that is built in to the cabinet walls can include sophisticated espresso machines, cappuccino makers and one cup coffee makers. These centers can be created and accessed by the simple push of a button. Gourmet coffee at the touch of a button in your own kitchen at any time you wish is what fuels this craze.
No renovation in the kitchen is complete without thinking about the kitchen cabinets. There are so many affordable options in cabinetry without an overwhelming budget. Floating cabinetry is a new, minimal approach to kitchen cabinets. Floating cabinets have unique sliding doors without hardware. If modern isn’t necessarily your idea of the perfect kitchen consider updating cabinets using paint or new wooden cabinetry. Customize your cabinets to fit the look of your kitchen which in turn should be a representation of your home.
This trend is a popular trend because it is one way in which you can mix and match several different elements. Whether you mix butcher block and marble or glass and metal the elements work together to create a one of a kind kitchen. When multiple materials are mixed together to renovate your kitchen the end result is something unique with a high end, exclusive vibe.
