Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen is the hub of the home and the center of activity. If your kitchen is looking a little outdated, it is time for a refresh. Whether you plan to stay in your home for many years to come or you are thinking of selling it in the future, a kitchen renovation is something that always makes a big impact. Here are a few ideas and trends to bring your kitchen up to date.

Bright Kitchens

These last few years have had many staying in and cooking at home more than eating out. It has become even more important for our kitchens to become practical and cheerful. One of the more popular trends that we are seeing is all-white cabinets with pops of color throughout the space using accessories and brightly painted accents. Trends also tend to be toward lighter woods and eco-friendly materials. You might want to try lighter colors with pops of citrus, refreshing blues, and shades of nature-inspired green.

Install an Induction Cooktop

Induction cooktops are a popular trend because they provide more consistent heat than many other types of ranges. They are fast, and an induction cooktop can boil a pot of water in as little as 90 seconds. A stainless-steel induction cooktop makes the kitchen feel fresh and modern. It is also a time-saver in our busy lives. Our team includes a certified electrician with over 20 years of experience, so we can install the range or anything else that is needed.

New Lighting Brightens Kitchen Spaces

More recently, kitchens have become a space that is more multifunctional than in the past. It is the room where the kids do homework, and many kitchens must now serve as a Home Office for part of the day. This means that lighting is more important than ever. Mixed metals have become a popular style trend in recent years, and the right lighting can make them stand out and brighten the space. Some LED rope lighting under the countertop can provide just the right amount of light for a workspace.

Natural Materials for the Kitchen

Natural materials give the kitchen a contemporary look, and they continue to become more popular. These materials include quartzite or granite countertops and natural flooring options, like bamboo. Natural materials evoke a feeling of being outdoors, and they continue to find their way into every room of the home, especially kitchens.

New Appliance Trends

Some of the biggest innovations for a kitchen renovation are in the area of appliances. For a long time, appliances tended to get larger and more expansive. Now, homeowners are transforming their spaces to be more functional by adding two smaller refrigerators instead of one large one.
