The latest trends in kitchen remodeling aren’t Jetson-esque robots or pop-up appliances in a cold, stark environment. They do include concealed appliances for a sleek look, or stainless steel in the newer, finger-print-free finish. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) Design Competition, kitchen remodeling includes color that makes a statement in backsplashes and paint. The designers also showed trends in dark cabinetry – espresso and chocolate – detailed ceilings, inlaid floors and walk-in pantries.
Although you can get many different opinions on “trends,” in our kitchen additions and kitchen remodels throughout Manassas, Alexandria, Fairfax and Arlington, we’re seeing dark and natural-finish 42-inch tall cabinetry and wood floors surge in popularity. Countertops in natural stone and quartz continue to be in demand, and customers are asking for more lighting and electrical outlets. Most importantly, your kitchen should be functional for your family’s lifestyle – trends notwithstanding.
