Ditch the appliance garages and get your microwave off the counter if you want to be in step with this season’s kitchen design trends, according to this Forbes article. Over the years, we’ve done many kitchen remodels in and near Auberndale, and we have to admit, the article makes some great points.
The first point is knowing whether you want to renovate your Auburndale kitchen for your own sake, or because you’re planning on selling your home. Having a firm grasp of your motivation will make the decision making process easier. For example, if you know you’re going to stay in your current home at least until you retire, and hopefully for many years beyond, and you love dark cherry cabinets, have your Auberndale building contractor install dark cherry cabinets. However, if you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, you may want to opt for more popular finishes, such as light maple or painted wood.
The move toward open, airy kitchen design explains many of the current kitchen trends. Eliminating appliance garages, in-kitchen desks, and hanging pot racks all contribute to the cleaner feel and open lines of the modern kitchen. Using deep drawers for pot and pan storage makes it easy to keep the clutter under control. We’ve also seen some Auberndale kitchen renovations bring the pot and pan storage into a pantry area, so that’s another option to consider.
Backsplashes are a big trend, and that’s surely do to how much these colorful, attractive features do to make kitchen clean-up quick and simple. Talk to your Auberndale building contraactor about your choices for backsplashes. The most current trend is for the backsplash to extend from the countertop to the bottom of the upper cabinets. There are great ceramic tile backsplashes, metal backsplashes, even glass backsplashes. No matter what your personal style may be, there’s a backsplash option for you!
