Lately, the focus has been on calming, relaxing colors when it comes to home remodeling. This color trend extends to kitchen remodeling as well. By mixing metals into the design plan, you contrast the yellow and the white metals. For instance, mixing stainless steel with copper.
Texture plays an important role in design because it creates drama and depth. Smooth, clean textures are trending in kitchen remodeling. However, they are often offset by a textural element with flooring or walls to create interest
At one time, laminate was the hot new countertop material. Another favorite was granite. A solid concrete countertop was a new trend. Still another stainless steel.
It seems today that the focus is on eco-friendly composite countertops that do not give off harmful VOCs. They are formed of fly ash or recycled paper. They are resistant to stains, scratches, and heat. They inhibit bacteria growth. Granite is still much loved, and engineered stone is wonderful for a contemporary kitchen.
More than ever before, homeowners are leaning toward an open floor. At one time, rooms were sectioned and then began to open up to make the home airier. Now, instead of a peek-a-boo wall between the kitchen and other areas, half wall to hide dirty dishes, everything is open. The trend may become even more industrial-like to where walls completely disappear except for bedrooms.
More windows are being installed to open the space even further. Functional floor plans are also considered a higher priority, which fits into more open space.
