3 Kitchen Remodeling Trends To Make Your Space Inviting, Functional & Personal
Some kitchen trends will never be out of style, and fortunately, there are a lot of ways you can go about making the space inviting, functional, and personal with kitchen remodeling.
If your home has aged to the point where you are wanting to remodel the kitchen, don't just think about design trends. Though of course, remodeling trends give you some great ideas to get started, you want to personalize the space – not just do what everyone else is doing.
So, let our veteran remodeling company, Fowler Construction, give you a place to start with these 3 classing remodeling trends you can stick to no matter if it's 2018 or 10 years from now.
Just The Right Contrast With Color & Texture
When planning your kitchen remodeling project, the textures and colors you use will set the tone of the room. While an all white-kitchen may have been popular last year and a kitchen rich in various earthy textures was a decade ago, choosing just the right contrast will always be a classic and beautiful way to remodel. Don't go too smooth and too neutral without adding in some contrasting textures and colors.
For example: For the top cabinets, choose off-white cabinets similar to the color of the ceiling, light-to-medium brown backsplashes, a darker modern brown wood-textured island, smooth modern black bottom cabinets, and a light bamboo floor. This trend of subtle but noticeably contrasted design will always be in style for kitchen remodeling.
Personalizing The Space
If you see a kitchen design photo you like, don't just copy it. Maybe you need different storage for your kitchen island or maybe you really don't like stainless-steel appliances. Need a built-in stove and microwave above but don't want to do something outdated? Do it anyway! This is what you need and there are plenty of kitchen remodeling methods to make the space modern and beautiful.
Make It Functional According To Your Needs
Everyone uses their kitchen differently. If you wouldn't like having a sink installed on a kitchen island, don't do it. If you need a spice rack near the stove, install one. If you like open shelves and baskets to hold goodies, use them. If you like pot-hangers, install them! Just look for modern designs in these products and you'll be all set to enjoy cooking in your kitchen.
