When House Beautiful magazine asked designer blogger Arianna Belle for her thoughts about the coming home style trends for 2014, she replied with a focus on interchangeable accents. “I think we’ll see a trend towards chameleon decor. Instead of settling on one fixed look, people will opt for a versatile neutral base and use big-impact accents to easily change their decor.”
Let’s talk about what that means for kitchen remodels. As you know, kitchen trends change often. It doesn’t take long for the kitchen to appear dated – and frankly, a 1980’s kitchen just doesn’t work all that well for the 2014 family. Our lifestyles have changed tremendously! But updating the kitchen can be an expensive proposition.
Belle’s thoughts on retaining one neutral base- say the cabinetry, which is often the most expensive element of any kitchen – while changing other eye catching aspects of the room – makes good financial sense. There are so many options available to you when you have a skilled Natick building contractor working to assist you. Something as simple as putting in a window can completely transform the look of the room. Other popular changes include changing cabinet doors and countertop, adding or reconfiguring a kitchen island, and renovating to accommodate more modern appliances to better meet family needs.
For families that enjoy doing a lot of summer barbecuing, one creative alternative to the traditional kitchen remodel is having a deck or patio built to adjoin the kitchen. Attractive French or patio doors add a light into the kitchen while increasing the functional space you have for cooking and entertaining. You can have an attractive deck added on for the fraction of the price of a full kitchen remodel – something to keep in mind.
