Not interested in doing a complete kitchen remodel but want to update your kitchen to the twenty-first century? Consider these tips to take your kitchen remodel to the next level with just a few simple steps.
Color is a big part of a kitchen remodel. In 2016, the top color choices are again turning minimalistic, with a heightened focus on the nude and classic colors. For example, traditional whitewashed walls? They’re so out of focus. Instead, the new white is actually various shades of gray, from light to dark. Grey is definitely a top trending color, in fact designers are predicting that gray countertops and cabinetry will upstage the traditional white looks.
Another kitchen remodel design trend in 2016 is instead of designing a kitchen based around style and appeal, to redesign one that is centered around functionality. Easy to close doors, access to storage and reliable appliances are the best choices for a kitchen remodel in terms of 2016.
In addition to seeing a rise in popularity of gray countertops and cabinets, there has also been a rise in the appeal of black and white design palettes. This type of classic design has been considered an ageless design, one that is not foreseen to ever go totally out of style, which makes it a good option for a kitchen remodel in 2016. But what is coming into style this year is fresh hues and colors that revitalize your kitchen sink. Think about an eye-catching green or blue sink finish to draw attention to the sink in your new kitchen. Just a small pop of color in a black and white classic kitchen can really make your new design pop.
Yet another way to make your kitchen remodel pop is to install bold fixtures in your new design. Try installing oversized light fixtures in unique stains or finishes or perhaps a luxurious wood cabinet that make a strong statement in your kitchen design. You can alternatively do this by using the natural light in your kitchen to contrast light and shadow. Metal range hoods are also making a comeback in kitchen remodels in 2016.
Another trending kitchen remodel design feature for 2016 is increased functionality and storage. Using up all possible areas of storage are must in creating a kitchen that is neat, organized and clutter-free. Consider installing corner cabinets or pullout storage cabinets to clear away more counter space in your kitchen. An alternative suggestion for clearing even more counter space is to install a pull out knife block in a cabinet, thus getting rid of the unsightly block from your countertops.
So when you are considering a kitchen remodel to update the feel and look of your space, consider one with a slightly cleaner feel with bold lines and less fussy details. It will not only let you enjoy your kitchen space, have plenty of storage available and provide a kitchen style that is more compatible with the style of the rest of your home.
