Although general contractors can tackle a kitchen remodeling project any day of the year, spring and summer tend to be the most popular times. The weather is manageable, and the bright skies and blooming flowers are inspiring for homeowners. If you’re looking to renovate your kitchen, we have some ideas you might want to consider. Based in Minneapolis, MN, EdgeWork Design Build has been serving homeowners throughout the Twin Cities metro area for over 40 years.
5 Kitchen Remodeling Ideas to Try in 2018
1. Soft, Muted Colors
While white and beige have reigned supreme for years, in 2018 consider branching out to another hue in the spectrum. A soft sage or slate would be a gentle way to introduce color into the space while still maintaining a neutral tone. Grey is another popular, and timeless, muted shade.
2. Unconventional Metals
Stainless steel and brushed nickel have been a popular choice for a while now, but shiny copper, golden yellow brass, and oil rubbed bronze are popping up more frequently in kitchen remodels for aspects like lighting fixtures, faucets, and hardware. Black appliances are also becoming more sought-after.
3. Natural Wood Grain
While hardwood is often showcased in kitchen cabinetry, it’s also been featured in countertops more recently, especially for kitchen island and bar combinations. Hardwood floors continue to be in demand, especially in open floor concepts.
While appliances, sink, countertops, backsplash, lighting, and cabinetry are always paramount, this year, smaller decorative elements like the lighting shades, slipcovers, wall art, and cabinet hardware are getting more attention. Consider adding a chandelier over a breakfast nook with cushions that coordinate with the throw pillows in your living room.
As significant as decoration is this year, functionality is still essential. If they aren’t already on your list, incorporate features like rotating shelving in corner cabinets, tiered drawers, and an organized refrigerator enclosure that blends seamlessly into the kitchen.
