If you are considering a kitchen or bathroom remodel this year, or if you are building a new home, there are several trends that have cropped up for the year that you may want to consider. Your kitchen and bathroom are the most used rooms in your home and an update can bring you more than a 100 percent return on your investment. Some of these trends are fairly easy to incorporate into your kitchen or bath to give it an updated look.
Black & White
Black and white are one trend that has seemed to grow in popularity for this year. The colors are timeless and classic. It is also easy to get a sophisticated look in your kitchen or bath by adding white cabinetry with black hardware. It is also easy to change this look when you grow tired of it or when it begins to look outdated. If you aren’t a fan of black and white in your bathroom, consider soft colors to give your bathroom a spa-like atmosphere.
High Tech and Eco-Friendly Additions
There are many high-tech products available now for the kitchen and bath to help make our life much easier. Products like Genican, a garbage can that scans barcodes as you throw them away and adds them to your grocery list or the Smart Crock Pot that is connected to a home automation system by WeMo so you can control it from your smartphone. Some ovens now allow you to control them using an app on your smartphone. In the bathroom, consider adding eco-friendly features like water-saving toilets and showerheads. Look for the WaterSense label to be sure the product meets guidelines from the EPA.
Bright Sinks and Unique Tile
The days of white or beige sinks are a thing of the past. Today’s trend is for bright, colorful sinks like bright blue or teal are a great way to add a splash of color to your room. Pair them with a white or black countertop for the contrast. If you want to add tile, there is no need to use flat, boring tile any longer. Choose three-dimensional tiles that add texture and visual appeal to your kitchen or bath. Use them in a shower or behind a whirlpool tub. You can also use the tile as a backsplash in the kitchen for a unique look.
