Kitchen Remodeling Trends

Remodeling a kitchen takes a lot of planning and research. There are three reasons one might want to remodel their kitchen; improve the flow of the work space in the kitchen, update or improve the room or to add value to the home. The kitchen is the one room that a remodeling project will increase the value of the home. The average family remodels a kitchen every twenty years.

Trends for remodeling are available very quickly through social media, especially through Pinterest and Houzz.com. Pinterest is a great source for the DIY person and Houzz is a website that allows professional to share photos and details of their projects. With the numerous internet options the purchasers are more educated for look, quality, function, price and are looking for products that are long lasting.

One caution, be careful not to be too trendy with a new kitchen design, suggest Holly Denihan, the custom kitchen designer at DirectBuy of Indianapolis.

Holly shares five new trends that are must have items for any kitchen remodeling project, that will always be up to date.

One can never go wrong being more green and the consumers of today are looking for easy ways to save and recycle. A double trash pullout is a definite must, one of the most popular items added to a kitchen remodeling project. One bin is for trash and one bin is for recycling, making it easy to separate the recycle and easy to put them out for recycle pick up.

The current kitchen remodels have simple style. Clean line cabinet doors with recessed center panels instead of raised. Less “ornate” and more “comfortable casual”. DirectBuy vendors have an excellent selection of comfortable styles as well as a variety of colors that will go great with any type of flooring.

All of the cabinets offered by DirectBuy are; solid wood, dove tailed, full extension and soft closing.

Large drawers are a very popular selection. These drawers are for pots and pans. The more drawers the better and the bigger the better. People are going away from the roll out shelves to drawers for ease of function.

Islands are getting larger and larger and better functioning with the entire family having a space for every need including homework, prep space, clean up, and cooking.

For the countertops, quartz is growing in popularity over granite countertops, the colors are more uniform and simple looking. The main difference between granite and quartz; granite is natural rock from the earth and will have pitting that requires a sealer every 1-3 years. Quarts is natural rock ground up and repoured to make the counter top and it is maintenance free. Some will choose the type of countertop based on the look and others will choose the counter top based on the amount of maintenance.
