Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen can be a challenging space. Often thought of as the “heart of the home,” kitchens have the unique distinction of needing to be simultaneously, utilitarian work areas and welcoming gathering places.  To get inspired to create a kitchen that best reflects your family’s style, take at look at this list of some of our favorite kitchen trends going into 2012.

Juxtaposition: Combining seemingly contrasting styles is an ongoing trend that we suspect will continue to be popular in 2012.  For example, pair modern painted white lacquer cabinets with black granite countertops or rustic hardwood floors.  The juxtaposition of light and dark, modern and traditional will create an instantly classic space that can easily survive style changes and ever evolving trends.

Furniture-Style Detailing: Fancy fixtures, such as decorative brackets or the more intricate hardware that you might find on armoires or other furniture can add a grand twist when applied to the kitchen.  On your base cabinets, try applying furniture-style feet to your toe-kicks to create the look of the currently popular unfitted cabinets.

Colorful Countertops: A pop of color can help to transform a space and what better place to put it than in your kitchen counters?  Showy surfaces and bright bold colors are becoming increasingly popular today.  Not quite ready for a bold blue tile counter?  More conventional surfaces such as quartz can provide a subtler color injection when the hue is bold and unexpected.
