Top 10 kitchen Trends

More and more homeowners are remodeling and making the most of their space with these top 10 hot trends in the kitchen.

Pearland Home Kitchen

  1. Kitchens are now featuring a “family room” feel with more seating and dining areas.
  2. The most popular color choice for cabinets was white. It works well with almost any architectural style – traditional to contemporary.
  3. Stainless steel appliances are still a big hit, especially the fingerprint-resistant steel finish.
  4. More and more kitchens are featuring custom additions such as pizza-making stations, coffee bars and wine-tasting nooks.
  5. Walk-in pantries are popular for families and allow for ample storage of surplus items and bulk purchase like paper towels and canned goods.
  6. Tech-savvy kitchens are featuring more electronics, like wall-mounted televisions and built-in sound systems.
  7. Eco-friendly kitchens boost water-conserving faucets, energy start appliances and eco-friend cabinetry.
  8. Built-in appliances that look more like cabinets are popping up across the country.
  9. Lighting can convert from well-lit workspace to dimly lit formal dinner with the flip of a switch. Recessed lighting combined with chandeliers will do the trick.
  10. A save-and-splurge mentality helps keep remodelers on budget. Choose to splurge on appliances instead of countertops or a built-in wine rack instead of a porcelain sink.

I'm happy to see white kitchens are again popular - I've always loved them!

I like the idea of the family room space.  For a long time people wanted to have their "sink" out of the view of their guests, which is where lots of entertainment hostesses spend most of their time!

Danny- Wow, a pizza-making station sounds great! That would be a fun addition to any kitchen.

Danny, I'm happy that white kitchens are still trendy, it's always been my favorite followed by light maple.

Danny , thanks for sharing these.  I always liked the look and feel of white in the kitchen.  I thought I might repost your blog as the tips are great.

I might also add to your list, more and more kitchens have an island with cutting board, stationary and movable on wheels.  Gives an added dimension to the kitchen.
