Remodeling a Kitchen - part 2
Tuesday, 27 July 2010 19:33

A popular method of remodeling a kitchen today isn’t far too expensive. It often just means new curtains, a different coat of paint, and the newest appliances. Another popular feature of the kitchen in the 21st century is tiles for the floor, but a swing towards hardwood flooring is beginning to take place. When it comes to countertops and cabinets, there are also a few new trends. Cabinets are becoming more stylish, with a higher emphasis placed on designs and carving. When it comes to countertops, the general shift is towards granite. Again, both of these are expensive, so you must consider how much you need them. Also, color correlation is a huge thing nowadays. Snazzy new kitchens are often cool, versus the warm colored kitchens of the 60’s and 70’s. Shades of blue, purple, green and even white and black seem to be all the rage now a days.

When it comes to the layout of the kitchen, you must consider current trends. Right now, the kitchen is no longer the focus point, but more of the efficient cooking stations. Kitchens today are often attacked to a family room, and serve as a point of preparation. At times a small table might be included in the kitchen for morning meals or a quick snack, but more often than not more of the eating is shifting to the family room.

Kitchens nowadays must be efficient. With technology coming out at a rapid pace, a modern kitchen must work well. Things such as the oven, microwave, garbage dispenser, dishwasher, freezer, and water filter should all be available to be able to call a kitchen truly modern. Visit your local furniture and kitchen stores to see some more modern designs to get a better idea of what will be needed.
