Most Durable Material for Kitchen Countertops
One of the things that you will need to decide on when you are ready to remodel your kitchen is what you want to use for your counter tops. Most people will use several types of materials such as wood butcher block, metal and of course natural stone. Natural stone is the most common type of counter top material to use and the latest trend is to use quartz. The great thing about quartz is that you can use find quartz that comes in many colors combinations that will go with the rest of the kitchen design. The other benefit that you get when you choose quartz is that it is a durable stone that stands up well to damage and abuse. This is great if you want materials that will stand the test of time.
Which Color Scheme is Best for Kitchen?
One of the trends that has been around for some time is to have a streamline white kitchen. This means you choose white cabinets, white paint and of course white counters. This is a great way to add brightness and elegance to a kitchen. Although it is still sought after and a great way to design a kitchen the more current trend is to use a pop of color somewhere in the space. You don’t want to break up a beautiful white space with a dark blue wall or a deep red wall so it is better to choose a soft color pop. You can use sea foam green, sky blue or yellow to paint the island as a way to add that pop of color that can make the space a little more fun.
Kitchen Cabinets with No Handles
When you are looking to make a change to the kitchen switching out the handles is a great place to start. If you plan on updating the kitchen to make it more modern you want to avoid cabinets that have hardware like handles and knobs. The trend is to have cabinets have space that is cut out to open the cabinets without the use of handles.
