The Latest Kitchen Trends

As sales of new and existing homes slow, many homeowners are seeking ways to make their current home more like their dream home. One of best places to start is the kitchen. It is the area most families spend most of their time and the one room where the return on your investment for improvements is excellent. Some of the more recent trends in kitchen design and renovation are:

  • Refrigerators are getting smaller and narrower to fit smaller spaces and budgets
  • More retailers are offering real wood flooring, including wood that has been hand-scraped for a distressed look
  • Quartz, or engineered stone is gaining on granite as the top choice for counter tops because quartz looks great and is exceptionally durable, but does not require periodic resealing like granite
