If you’ve been thinking you’d like to improve upon your kitchen space, there is no better time than right now. The great news is that any work you do in the kitchen space in terms of updates will deliver when it comes to positive impacts on your home’s value. Industry experts suggest that kitchen remodel projects are some of the smartest updates you can make to your home. And while you’re at it, consider these four trendy ideas for your space.
Go all white with your kitchen
All white has been an on-trend look for the past several years. White countertops—granite or quartz—with subtle color veining, white cabinets, white tiles, and light-colored flooring are all part of the recipe for a cool, clean, modern kitchen space. This trend doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon, either and should definitely be a consideration for your kitchen remodel.
Don’t be afraid of color, though
Even though all-white kitchens are all the rage, you shouldn’t shy away from considering a pop of color in your kitchen space. Maybe a bold backsplash is in order, or a different tile used only behind the stovetop. You might even consider something really bold like painting your kitchen island cabinets a contrasting color to the rest of the room.
Consider clever storage
Kitchens are all about storage. In fact, it’s one of the first things that most people notice when looking at a kitchen. There are some unique storage ideas available in the cabinetry world. Do yourself a favor and hit a cabinetry showroom near you to discover the world of possibilities when it comes to clever storage.
Wood still wins in the kitchen and you should consider the building material for your project. Maybe a butcher block countertop would work well in your space. Perhaps exposed, rough-cut beams overhead would add a dramatic punch that you’re looking for. And also be sure to buy top quality hardwood cabinets for years of use with little maintenance.
