Kitchen Designs to Look Out for in the New Year

Kitchen Remodeling

If a kitchen remodel is on your wish list for the new year, you might be interested in the trending popularity of glamorous materials, jewel tones and lighter cabinet colors. Elle Decor, the harbinger of style and good taste for the home, has just released popular decor choices for 2014, and they include a dose of glamour for the kitchen.

The kitchen is often the heart of the home so it is important  to take time when choosing the decor for it. The style gurus predict more color, more drama, and a dose of polished metal accents and unusual lighting for the well-appointed kitchen in the coming year. Upstaging granite as the countertop material of choice may well be natural-looking manmades such as quartzite and composite materials that simulate malachite or agate. Other designers predict a continuing interest in recycled glass and eco-friendly surfaces for backsplashes.

Metals, including a return to polished brass as well as hammered and antiqued finishes, are expected to adorn backsplashes and utility surfaces and appear prominently in lighting fixtures.

Painted finishes may well be more popular for kitchen cabinets, in a variety of deep-toned jewel colors, but lighter “honey-toned” woods will gain new acceptance, according to style gurus. Natural flooring, including wood, will remain popular, but colors are lighter and more natural.

Function is still vital, however, so if you are considering a remodel for your New Jersey home in the new year, your best resource will be a professional, experienced firm like Trade Mark Design & Build to assist with all phases of the project. Visit our website to view our vast portfolio
