Kitchen Remodel Ideas

The kitchen is a key area of your home, and that means when it comes to remodeling this important space you need to be sure you’re choosing a design that will stand the test of time. While it might be tempting to go with something that is trendy at the moment, it could easily go out of style very quickly leaving you with a dated and unfashionable home and an expensive future remodel on your hands.

With this in mind, here are a few popular kitchen trends which have plenty of sticking power. Choose any or all of these and you can rest assured that a few years down the line, your kitchen will stay looking fashionable.

White Appliances

The first trend which is fashionable today and which is likely to stand the test of time are white kitchen appliances. White appliances have long been popular since they’re so easy to clean when compared to stainless steel appliances, and white blends perfectly with all styles of d├ęcor making dishwashers, washing machines and dyers in this color a long-lasting choice. 

Quartz Counters

Quartz has been touted as the toughest material to be used for kitchen countertops, and indeed it’s true that it can resist burns, chips and scratches admirably. Crushed quartz is mixed together with resin to make countertops which can either look like granite colors or have a solid color. The most common granite colors are white, black and gray and beige/brown.It seems odd to designate a single color to granite because the various grains and veins throughout can be any blend of neutral color. That being said, every granite slab has a base color, and it’s usually either white, black, or gray.   Our line of countertops has low maintenance and with no need for annual sealing, a quartz countertop is going to stand the test of time.

Touch Faucets

Although touch faucets might sound like a fad, in fact, they’re rapidly becoming a kitchen must-have now that more homeowners are concerned about minimizing germs and bacteria in their spaces. The perfect solution when you have dirty hands or when your hands are full of items which need to be washed, touch faucets also help you to save water since they switch off automatically. Like touch faucets, you should also have a touchless trash can in your kitchen to free your hands and fresh your home.

Copper Sinks

Although traditional ceramic or resin sinks have been popular for some time, there is a growing trend towards copper sinks. Not only is a copper sink a nice addition to your home but it’s also a long-lasting one. Bringing a stylish, rustic look to your home, a copper sink is resistant to scratches and damage and will stay looking fabulous for years to come.

Deep Drawers

Anyone who wants a functional kitchen that will stay accessible even as they age will appreciate the benefits that come with deep drawers rather than low cabinets. Base cabinets have now evolved so that there’s no need to bend over to reach your pots and pans. Drawers of around 24” in depth can simply be pulled out to reveal everything you need within easy reach. Deep drawer organizers are also here to stay. These ensure that the contents of your larger-than-average drawers stay firmly in place so everything doesn’t just become a big jumble of chaos where you can’t find anything. With separate dividers, trays, boxes and slots, it’s possible to store knives, plates, bottles, flatware and utensils separately.

A Side Opening Oven

Rather than a traditional fold down over door, a side opening oven is becoming a popular choice for accessibility. This is another trend which is here to stay. With the oven located at counter height, there’s no need for any bending or reaching to get food out of the oven, it can just slide out comfortably for a more ergonomic choice. A microwave drawer is another useful addition to your kitchen which is sure to have plenty of sticking power. By having your microwave installed in a drawer below the counter height it becomes much easier to use without any need to stretch up. 

These are just some of the latest trends for kitchens that are certain to go the distance. Since all of these remodel ideas are practical and useful, they are going to stand the test of time. Your kitchen will remain fashionable and functional for many years to come so you won’t need to worry about having to spend a lot of money on a second remodel within just a couple of years. Incorporate any or all of these ideas into your remodel – you won’t regret it!
