Believe it or not, autumn is approaching fast. While the temperatures outside will be dropping soon enough, your kitchen still has time to sizzle with updated cabinets and countertops. Preparing for your fall renovation need not be daunting, especially when you have a good idea of what is hot this season. Here are some of this year’s top trends to help spark your kitchen creativity.

A Designer Kitchen in Reach

Although white is the most popular interior design cabinet color, light gray continues to make headway. There are an ample number of shades to choose from, but avoid going too dark in smaller kitchens.

Color is not the only change cabinets have seen this year as a lot of manufacturers have created new opening systems. Instead of conventional outward-swinging hinge doors, you can now install hydraulic models that open upward with the simple push of a button. Designer Cabinets, Granite & Tile expects to sell more and more of these space-saving and aesthetically intriguing interior design cabinets.

Black and white is a classic kitchen theme that conjures images of days gone by, but this uniquely contrasting palette remains a sought-after option. While you are certainly free to mix and match which colors go where, we recommend white cabinetry and granite kitchen countertops with jet black appliances (or possibly vice versa).

Your kitchen sink serves more than a functional purpose and deserves special treatment along with every other piece in the room. Stainless steel is generally the go-to choice, but do not be afraid to spice things up with bold coloring. Hues of green and yellow are a great way to make a dull cooking space pop, particularly when accenting a custom tile backsplash.

We all know lighting is important for every room, but this is even more true for kitchens. While few fixtures can compete with natural light, there has been a notable boost in the sales of bolder models. Make a statement with over-sized products that become the room’s focal point.

It is amazing how simple changes can bring your kitchen back to life or finally make your house feel like home. Give us a call or visit our showroom today to explore upgrading your kitchen cabinets and countertops.
