Remodeling your kitchen is the single most cost-effective room remodel you can invest in. Your return on investment is typically 100% or more! If you’d like to list your home but don’t want it sitting on the market for 100+ days, consider investing in your kitchen. The following are the upcoming trends to give you ideas on how to begin your kitchen remodel.
1. Wood Paneling
Probably one of the biggest trends right now is wood paneling! This can be done in small spaces as an accent and is a cost-effective way to create a new look in your kitchen. Leaving the wood in its rich, natural state is one way to do it, but also painting the wood white or a lighter shade of gray are other possibilities. You may also see this being done in living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms!
2. Hidden Appliances
Another popular trend is hiding your appliances behind the beautiful cabinetry in your kitchen. This can be done with your refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven, but also with your smaller appliances such as coffee makers and your microwave. For those who spend more time in the kitchen, this would provide a more inviting environment for sitting around and chatting with family and friends.
3. Tuxedo Kitchens
The tuxedo kitchen is a wonderful way to give a subtle contrast to this area of your home. Typically, you have white painted cabinets on top, and a darker color such as dark gray or navy blue on the bottom. Tie it all in with matching faucets, hardware, and light fixtures, and you’ve got yourself a stunning, modern kitchen!
4. Backsplash with Pattern
Although subway-inspired tiles are still on the top of most people’s wish lists, these patterned tiles are a close second! If you have a kitchen with neutral colors, this is a great way to add pattern and texture to the space.
5. The Automated Sink
Not only are sinks becoming automated, but meat thermometers that notify your smartphone when that yummy roast is done and lights that turn on and off by motion detection are just a couple of many new automation trends! We are likely to see many more of these options available to us in the future!
