Stainless steel appliances never lose their appeal, perhaps because they look great with any color scheme.
Natural hues and soft neutrals, with shades of white and cream are the most commonly selected colors for kitchen remodels today. White and gray painted kitchen cabinets are still popular, but natural wood stains never go out of style.
Open kitchen layouts have been selected by many homeowners for several years now. Contractors are frequently asked to remove a wall so homeowners can enjoy the convenience of a more kitchen space to work in, and still mingle with others. The preference for openness is reflected in small details, like the open cabinetry and open shelving that has been popular for the last several years.
Lighting features in today’s kitchens consist of under cabinet lights, ceiling lighting and task lights such as pendant lights over a kitchen island; all with adjustable dimming and the ability to turn off some features when not wanted.
