If you are planning to remodel your kitchen in the New Year, you are not alone. Kitchen remodeling is at the top of the list of rooms that homeowners are planning to remodel in 2014. According to the Zillow Digs Home Design Trend Report for 2014, trendy kits will soon be featuring exquisite black countertops, rich paint tones and open shelves / glass front-cabinets.
Since the kitchen is often the focal point of the homes, it makes perfect sense that in this new year, it is the top room choice for home remodeling. Every member of the family favors a great deal of time in the kitchen and when you update and modernize it, you can ensure that your family will continue to enjoy the time they spend in there. When you entertain guests at a dinner or a party, you are sure to be spending a lot of time in your kitchen and you will most certainly wow your guests by incorporating these amazing new kitchen remodeling ideas into your home.
Homeowners are always looking for the latest trends and ways to make their kitchens more sophisticated, trendy and modern. In colder weather areas, black countertops are one great way that you can add style and elegance. Changing your countertop can dramatically improve the appearance of your kitchen, and there are several options of materials that you can utilize to stay current with the black countertop trend. Black granite and quartz are both excellent materials that will add beauty and class to your home. In order to keep your kitchen open and not too heavy, you may want to also use lighter colored backsplash.
The preferred colors can change slightly in warmer weather cities. Although black is still popular, there are other paint tones that are more up and coming in these areas. Zillow Digs has also identified dark brown, dark red and copper tones to be popular choices for this year. As with black countertops, it is easy to overwhelm a room with the darker colors, so homeowners may choose to accent just one wall with the darker color and maintain lighter shades for the remaining walls. In addition to the dark paint tones, the Pantone color of the year is radiant orchid, so you may decide to be adventurous and incorporate this beautiful color into your kitchen.
In years past, most homeowners chose cabinetry that unfortunately hid their kitchenware, making it impossible for them to admire it and easily access it. Luckily, open shelves and glass-front cabinets are the contemporary and exciting way to display your dishes, china and cookware. It is very fashionable to display most contents in your kitchen, and more homeowners are choosing to showcase the beautiful kitchenware that they have carefully chosen. In addition to your dishes and cookware, homeowners are now able to display their spices, oils and cookbooks, making the kitchen more fun and interesting to look at.
