Many of us can remember a time when the kitchen was hidden in the back of the house, behind a door. Its function? To make and bake and wash—that was it. But, these days, the kitchen is a gathering place and focal point in the home. It is the place for special memories and holiday prepping, late night glasses of wine after the kids are fast asleep, Sunday brunch and morning coffee with the sunrise… The kitchen has gone from a necessity in the back to a central pride-and-joy of the home.
I say all this to say, if your kitchen isn’t the pride-and-joy of your home but you wish it were, we can help. Here at Kitchen Cabinets & Beyond, our goal is to help the residents of Costa Mesa, CA transform their kitchens into spaces they are excited to cook in, entertain, make memories, and dine with the family. We know how important a kitchen remodel is to you. Is it your year to transform your kitchen? Keep reading for the top 5 kitchen remodel trends to consider for 2018!
- Smart kitchens
Motion sense-equipped faucets, one-touch feature refrigerators that will alert you when it’s time to grocery shop, motion sense-equipped trash bins, lighting systems connected to your tablet or smartphone, soft-close drawers and cabinets… the list goes on. This trend is big and it’s here to stay.
- Quartz is still the leader
High-end kitchens still call for quartz—the leading in countertops for decades. Granite is a close-second, only behind because it requires a little more maintenance.
- Effective storage
There’s nothing more aggravating than a kitchen that works against In 2018, there are more options for storage than ever before, so your kitchen can work for your. Here are some of the front-running trends this year:
- Drawer dividers
- Appliance “garages”
- Spice pull-outs
- Roll-out trays and caddies
- Trash basket cabinets
- Deep drawers
- Large pantry space
- Hardwood vs. ceramic tile flooring
Hardwood flooring is still the #1 choice for kitchens in 2018. But, ceramic tile is on the rise. Many homeowners are opting for ceramic tiles designed to look just like wood flooring or other natural stone.
- Pet-friendly kitchen space
You read that right. These days, we’re seeing fur babies become more and more integrated into the everyday lives of their human owners. Why not create a space just for them in the kitchen, too? For example, a feeding station (or doggy-dinette, if you will…) at the foot of a cabinet or next to a patio door. For your feline family members, adding a decorative (but functional) cat tree with a feeding station at its base is a nice touch. Think of it this way: they’re all more likely to leave you alone while you cook/eat with their own space set aside!
