Design Your Dream Kitchen!

Are you looking to renovate your current kitchen? Have you been watching all of your favorite HGTV shows and reading the House Beautiful Magazines to get ideas about color, styles, new trends, etc.?

Reasons for remodeling the kitchen

HGTV points out that “many homeowners determine whether they should remodel their kitchens based on whether their cabinets are worn, their appliances are dated or their countertops are crackled”.

The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) suggests the following considerations to help homeowners evaluate the condition of their kitchens and decide if the time is right for a remodel:

  • Adequate space
  • Traffic flow – open plan
  • Children – safety
  • Efficiency – technological advances in appliances
  • Universal design – is it working?
  • Location of the kitchen

Overall style

Before you get started, it is important that you focus in on the style of your entire home and what you want your new kitchen to look like with the design and overall feel. Here are the most popular styles from the National Kitchen & Bath Association with a photo gallery representing each look to make things a little easier to visualize:

  • Contemporary
  • Transitional
  • Traditional
  • Mid-century Modern
  • Farmhouse
  • Craftsman
  • Eclectic
  • Beach
  • Industrial
  • Glam

What’s hot in the world of kitchen design?

OK. You’ve got your style identified. Now, let’s look what is hot in the world of kitchen design.

House Beautiful reports that “kitchen design in 2018 is all about timber veneers, color contrast, texture, metallics and the ongoing industrial look. Personalization is big. The tail end of 2017 saw the emergence of more bold colors and textures in kitchen doors and this is following into this year. The mix of striking solid colors and woodgrains will continue to prove popular, whilst more industrial finishes like concrete will sit alongside these to really create interest in the kitchen. Consumers are increasingly looking for more variety and being braver in their style and color choices”.

Style at Home Designers revealed the coolest kitchen design trends for 2018:

  • Personalized backsplash tiles
  • No upper cabinets
  • Metal accents
  • The lived-in kitchen
  • Tiles everywhere
  • Sophisticated technology and finishes
  • Marble
  • Disappearing hood vents

Major Wow Components

Now you know what’s hot in 2018! Let’s look at some major components of a kitchen that can give you that WOW factor if you make one change or all of them. Each item has a huge host of materials, themes, sizes, etc. It is best to work with a professional kitchen remodeler to get educated about your choices in each area to make it beautiful and functional:
