trends in kitchen design
Kitchen designs today focus not only on cooking and eating activities; they also consider the use of the space to entertain guests. Well-lit rooms are now the most fashionable combined with more open spaces, and are now part of other rooms in the house, specifically the dining room and the so-called ‘great room’. By updating with the latest styles, people will be able to achieve their remodeling or construction goals.
One of the newer methods of remodeling your home’s ‘cooking and eating space’ is to make use of furniture-style cabinets, which are the best option when building islands. These are characterized by moldings, round legs and corbal coverings that make the cabinets look more like furniture. The same effect is also produced by cabinets that are made of solid wood such as cherry and maple. Regarding the finish, the light to medium ones are considered the most demanded, followed by the aged and glazed finishes. Painted finishes can also be applied, giving rise to other colors such as oyster, blueberry, off-white, and many more.
For a softer look, people rely on undermount sinks made from any of the following materials: stainless steel and cast iron, which easily match modern homes. They are also said to be beautiful and practical, not to mention quick to install and easy to clean.
When it comes to countertops, those shaped like natural stones, for example, granite and limestone, are the favorites. These materials can also be mixed with artificial stones such as concrete to give a more modern touch. For appliances, however, commercial types like European-style dishwashers, warming drawers, built-in refrigerators, etc. they have also become sought after.
Pots and pans that were traditionally placed in cupboards can now be stored in sturdy drawers. Have a butler’s pantry, wet bar, baking center, etc. built is also a growing trend today. These additions will really make activities more convenient and efficient, and will also help save time.
Some people may be hesitant when it comes to redesign for fear that the costs involved are too high. The truth is that the extension does not imply too much expense and that the only important cost will come from the need to add more presses and pantries.
There are so many advantages that modernization and expansion can give you, such as the creation of larger rooms, brighter places, etc. Remember that any amount of money you have to spend will be worth it due to the increase in the value of your residence that renovation activities can offer.
Now there are several kitchen designs to choose from. However, it’s a smart move to select one that’s not only fashionable, but also gives you and your family more room to prepare, clean, and store food more easily. Such a room in your home will never be boring as long as you know the right styles to follow.
