While you want to enjoy your kitchen and design it the way you like, you also need to consider what potential buyers would like in case you sell your home down the road. A kitchen that was designed even just a decade ago can look dated, and you may want to decide on remodeling your kitchen.
An important part of remodeling your kitchen is to find current trends that you are fond of. What had been popular decades before may not be what is popular now, so keeping up with 21st century kitchen trends for your remodel is a good idea.
When looking at trends make certain to watch for things that have remained in style or have changed very little. For example natural stone counter tops, such as granite, limestone and marble, are still the most popular material for counter tops. But adding a modern twist, like using different materials for specific work areas, keep your kitchen looking up to date and in style.
Less and less people have the need to prepare foods from scratch, so another trend of modern kitchens is to add more storage space. Work stations are now expected, whether that be full-size pantries, multi-level islands to work on, or cabinet pull outs.
The kitchen is now used for the entire family, so having a more open kitchen design for more space for family is also a current kitchen trend. Today’s kitchen designs are more open as far as space planning, since smaller kitchens were usually designed for a single person.
The trend toward professional grade appliances has continued. Keep a look out for kitchen ranges, built in refrigerators, and ovens with convection microwave and warming drawer options. Dishwashers that look like part of the cabinetry is more popular now than the huge face of stainless steel.
With so many different and unique styles to choose from, a modern trend has been to be more specific in kitchen design. For example having your kitchen designed in the famour country style is not enough. You can choose to have it designed in French country or the Tuscan country style.
There are a dizzying array of kitchen design ideas to consider, so take your time and research the current trends. By doing so you will be able to keep your kitchen looking attractive, especially to potential buyers if you end up selling your home later on. If you feel overwhelmed by this, you are not alone, that is why most people go out and hire a trusted company that will help them install all of the fixtures and elements that they’ve picked out.
