Stainless steel appliances always receive so much admiration in a kitchen design, but what about your kitchen cabinets? You know the things that hold your food, dishes, and are equally as important as anything else in the kitchen. They are beginning to get the attention they deserve. The moment you change up your kitchen cabinets, you can completely change the kitchen’s personality or vibe. It really is that simple. Below are a rundown of six trends that are happening to kitchen cabinets today.
New technology transforms our day-to-day lives, from bringing the internet to our kitchens to stoves that can be programmed to turn on, cook and shut down without you being there and refrigerators that will tell you when you are out of milk. The “smart home” is quickly becoming the norm and our bathrooms are keeping pace with the new technology. Here’s a look at the trends:
Your master bedroom is your personal oasis, the type of floor you choose for this oasis will set the look and mood for that oasis. Wall-to-wall carpeting, hardwood flooring, tile, laminate or even concrete will depend on what you want you, the size, layout, the climate, and budget for your room.
Whether you are adding a new porch or remodeling the existing porch, getting the right roof and ceiling for it is crucial. If you don’t have the right roofing you might get leaks or it isn’t right because the color is off. Some homeowners will use their porch all year long and install an outdoor kitchen. Making sure your porch is safe from the elements is extremely important for the longevity of this space.
I love a basement, in every home I have bought or rented I have looked for a basement. If it wasn’t finished I mentally tallied up the cost it would take to finish it. What kind of flooring I could put there, the lighting, furniture and built-ins I can add. But finishing a basement or taking a portion and finishing it can be costly if not done correctly the first time.
When we are looking for lighting options we are often provided with multiple light designs and fixtures, from recessed lighting that require contractors and tradesmen, to floor and desk lamps that need to have access to outlets. Ambient lighting, task or accent lighting are the most popular fixtures that are extremely versatile enough to be used in every room of the house.
A popular choice for kitchens, this resilient flooring is a versatile, economical option. Vinyl comes in a wide range of colors and patterns that mimic hardwood, ceramics, and stone. The surface’s elasticity and warmth make it comfortable to stand on, and plates, cups, and glasses often won’t break when dropped.
That single, small lighting fixture protruding from the middle of your bathroom ceiling doesn’t cut it by today’s lighting standards. What to do? Alternative sources of general lighting include recessed ceiling fixtures and indirect lighting that bounces off the ceiling or the walls. Adequate task lights have become a must, too.
