How To Keep Your Kitchen Up To Date And Stylish Without Slavishly Following Trends
Monday, November 28th 2016 8:43pm
We all want our kitchens to look stylish and fresh, and dare I say it `on trend` without it looking like we are just slavishly following the latest trends, but how can we do this? Well if you can incorporate elements into your kitchen design that are both great on the eye and also highly functional to boot, then you probably have a kitchen that you will both love and will not age any time soon.
The website AJC (Atlanta Journal Constitution) has come up with 5 good ideas to incorporate into your kitchen to make it look stylish, up to date, and that will add value to your home, so here they are:
1. Lacquer cabinets. Believe it or not, lacquer is more popular than wood when it comes to kitchen cabinetry. Sleek and minimal, a lot of homeowners love its low maintenance and modern edge. 2. Two-tone cabinets. From mixing materials to mixing finishes and colors, cabinets that don't necessarily match are en vogue. The application is typically executed with an upper cabinet in one finish or treatment contrasted by a different finish or material on lower cabinets. 3. Highly functioning kitchens, with niche items such as steam ovens and pot fillers. Not too long ago, kitchens that were attractive to look at but not necessarily functional were on the forefront of design. Now, post-recession, homeowners demand the most for their money, and this includes spending money on sturdy, long-lasting appliances. 4. Paneled appliances. These days it still remains a trend to have appliances that are unseen. Paneled appliances, from dishwashers to refrigerators, remain the desired choice, especially for home buyers. 5. Dark floors. Roughly a decade ago, when it came to flooring, the lighter the better. These days the current trend is more towards darker, deeper tones. The above 5 points have been plucked from the AJC website, so it is only right to leave a link which will take you directly to their site and the article in question, so here it is: Hot Trends In Kitchens
