What’s Hot in Kitchen Renovations?
A snazzy kitchen is always going to be a head-turner. Even people who don’t cook much like this space to look updated and well-designed.
Here are five current kitchen trends, according to Miranda Crace, publisher of home, money and life blog Zing! by Quicken Loans:
Brass is back. Change out the cabinet hardware and lighting fixtures for an easy updated kitchen look. Consider using old-fashioned brass in modern styles.
White and gray palette. Gray countertops and white cabinets are where it’s at right now. Or go with gray-stained cabinets and a white countertop.
Basic with a flourish. Simple but stylish is always in. For example, consider using white subway tiles for a backsplash, but in an angled pattern for added flair.
Quartz countertops. Granite had a good run, but quartz is now the go-to countertop material. Like granite, quartz is stain- and heat-resistant.
Open shelving. Storing beautiful dishes, cookware and glassware out in the open can give the kitchen more visual interest and offer increased storage capacity—win-win!
