5 Kitchen Update Trends

Whether you are looking to invest in simple updates or a complete kitchen renovation, you cannot go wrong incorporating the latest design trends to enjoy now as well as boost your homes value when it comes time to sell. If you are not sure where to begin, check out our list below featuring on trend elements we think will give you the most bang for your buck.

1. Cabinet Color

Replacing or repainting dark, dated cabinets is a priority in any kitchen update as cabinets are both an aesthetic and functional focal point which get noticed immediately by buyers. Bright white shaker cabinets remain a current favorite to brighten any space and provide a clean, modern appeal. On trend navy blue can be used for perimeter cabinets and a built-in pantry and coffee bar to add depth and contrast to a white subway tile backsplash, white Quartz counters, wood flooring and stainless-steel appliances.

2. Custom Storage

According to a recent Houzz study, a top functional priority, cited by 63 percent of renovators, was having a kitchen in which it is easy to store and find items. In the kitchen below, the large island functions as both a work area with extra storage below as well as a casual eating space with bar stools. The surrounding custom cabinetry and built in storage units add to the rooms efficiency and enhance the clean lines and modern style.

3. Quartz Countertops

The Houzz study also found that Quartz was the most popular countertop material in 2018. It has become a growing alternative to granite and marble for its durability, versatility and custom appeal.

4. Full-Tile Feature Walls

With the popularity of open first floor layouts and kitchens with wall free transitions, there is more of a need for a focal point. One of the trends we continue to see is beautiful feature walls with counter to ceiling tile either behind floating shelves or a range hood. Whether choosing a shimmery glass finish or a bold geometric pattern, it is a cost effective way to add high end style, texture and depth.

5. Mixed Metals

Designers are now selecting a mix of metal finishes for faucets, hardware, lighting and appliances to add a new level of depth, sophisticated style and personality to a space. Be careful not to choose too many different finishes that compete with the surrounding colors and materials. Keep it simple with two metals that balance the room well. A primary finish such as a cool chrome or stainless steel should take up two-thirds of the fixtures then choose a warmer accent such as antique brass for the remaining third.

I Appreciate Your Referrals

It is a common misconception that a real estate agent primarily learns of someone looking to buy or sell a home when someone simply calls an agency looking for an agent to help them. Although this can happen, it is very rare. In fact, over 80% of the referrals I receive come from past clients and past coworkers just like you. The other 15-20% of referrals comes from our national network of relocation companies and other Coldwell Banker agencies across the country.

The greatest compliment I can receive is when someone like you refers me to a friend, coworker or family member of theirs. If you, or someone you know, are looking to either buy or sell a home then I would certainly appreciate the opportunity to earn your business. Do you know of someone looking to buy or sell a home?
