Kitchen and bath remodeling are consistently among the most requested projects for remodeling firms after the New Year. Your kitchen is the heart of the home. It serves as the launchpad for just about every activity in your home: meals, game nights, homework, and social gatherings with loved ones. In highly used spaces, style is no doubt important, but it comes secondary to how each room serves you and your family. You need a space that works for how you live.
Choosing a reputable remodeling team with experienced kitchen designers will ensure that your kitchen remodel serves as more than just a touch up - it's an investment in your home and your quality of life. Below are some ideas to help you envision your brand new, dream kitchen.
NEUTRAL KITCHENS RE-IMAGINED
All-white kitchens have maintained popularity in kitchen remodeling for years because they're often the most adaptable to various interiors, and they're classic, they never really go out of style. But, over the past year there has been a considerable shift to include more color. Navy, ever the neutral blue, has been increasingly popular, especially paired with white. If blue and white conjures up images of cluttered shelves full of ginger jars, rest assured that bringing this classic color combination together in new and less traditional ways will make the space feel more modern and fresh.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: A BOLD CLASSIC COUNTERTOP
Although creative combinations of cabinetry and metal finishes are all the rage, we're still seeing a high demand for classic countertops. Natural marble countertops will forever be another classic. The unique pattern of each slab makes every installation one-of-a-kind. That being said, engineered quartz is still dominating the kitchen remodeling market in Chula Vista, CA because it doesn't require special attention or maintenance. While not for everyone, we find families with young children or grandchildren, or couples who really love to entertain, tend to gravitate toward quartz because it just makes life easier.
MIX IT UP WITH METALLIC ACCENTS
Mixing metals tends to give a space a more curated and intentional look. When the plumbing, appliances, light fixtures and cabinet hardware are all variations on brushed or stainless steel, it tends to look like there wasn't much thought put into it. Homeowners have a tendency to stress over making sure everything matches, but it's just not possible. When you're combining similar finishes across half a dozen brands, they're all going to be slightly different - especially anything gold or brass. We prefer to mix finishes, but not just for the sake of being different. When it's intentional, mixing metals really adds another layer of detail making the kitchen that much more unique. In the navy and white kitchen above, we used chrome, stainless steel, aluminum and varying shades of brass.
