Spring will be here before you know it, so why not freshen up your kitchen with these top trends?
Spring into Simplicity
Shaker style cabinets have grown in popularity throughout 2010 and provide a clean, functional look. This cabinet’s simplicity is expressed through its plain fronts, limited trim and easy hardware that can fit any kitchen décor.
Bye Bye, Color
With a tumbling housing market, homeowners are opting for a neutral palette in the kitchen. Their hope to resell their home in the future is leading to classic finishes and warm earth tones for countertops and backsplashes.
Granite may still be prominent, but quartz countertops are on the rise. Quartz provides the ultimate combination of form and function, allowing for a more diverse, durable and practical countertop surfacing material than either granite or marble. The material is also stain, scratch and heat-resistant.
When selecting the cabinets for your home, consider maple wood. Maple is growing in popularity for its affordable price, durability and versatility. Maple wood fits in with a wide variety of décors.
Satin Nickel Faucets
These easy to care for faucets are great because the brushed satin finish hides most scratches and finger prints. And unlike stainless steel faucets, which can have a bluish tint, a satin nickel finish can provide a modern look to fit any color scheme. Another plus is they are resistant to corrosion and tarnishing.
