Staying on Trends With Your Kitchen Designs

Everyone who cooks desires a kitchen that is functional, spacious and on trend with today’s market. A kitchen that has older appliances, bad lighting, flooring that is cracked with age just doesn’t show off your personality. A kitchen that is bright, with everything you need at your fingertips, and simply up to date will make anyone smile. It allows your personality to shine.

Having a one of a kind kitchen is as easy as you think. It’s something we all desire. Look at your kitchen now. See where you can update. Upgrade to make it a functionally beautiful, one of a kind work of art. If you have the space for it, kitchen islands are a huge trend now. A kitchen island can give you more counter space and even additional seating. If you are able to put the sink and stove on your island, it will allow you to put countertops in their place, as well as free up the wall for additional cabinets.

There are so many options to make your kitchen your own. If you love color and art, think about a glass backsplash. You can even think of a few strategically placed focal tiles in interesting shapes and design. Lighting is another way to bring life back into your kitchen. Pendant lights are making a huge comeback. They are wonderfully different and look great in any kitchen. You can get the lights all together with the base and globes. If you love the base but hate the globes, you can purchase the base and pick your own globes.

Now you can tie in all that planning, design and colors with a beautiful floor. If you love the rustic, earthy look but don’t want hardwood in your kitchen, think about a tile that looks like hardwood. If you love color and art, look at mosaic tiles for that tropical flavor.

For the tight budget option, there is still hope for the “wow factor”. Consider purchasing a higher quality tile as a focal point. This way, you will get the pop you are looking for and still stay on budget. Don’t ever think just because you are on a budget that you have to settle for ordinary. It just takes a little to make it extraordinary!
