High-Tech Kitchens

Smart homes have continued to gain in popularity in recent years, and kitchens are no exception. Now you can technology built into every part of your kitchen, from the faucets to the fridge, and everything in between. The smart kitchen has arrived. You can get alerts from your refrigerator when you are running low on groceries, have coffee freshly ground and brewed for you when you wake up, and turn lights on and off from your smartphone or tablet.
Watch for kitchens to get even “smarter” in the future.

New Styles and Colors for Appliances

Stainless steel appliances have been king for quite a while, so it’s no surprise to see some new trends on the horizon. One of those is gray appliances in a brushed-metal finish. Other colors are also gaining in popularity, such as red or blue. We have certainly come a long way from the traditional white appliances of yesteryear.

It isn’t just the look of appliances that has changed. Induction cook-tops are hot, as are commercial-sized appliances. Steam ovens are another popular must-have item for new kitchens.

Many new appliances are smart as well, meaning you can run them remotely from your smartphone or tablet.

White Cabinets

White continues to be a popular cabinet color for kitchens, with homeowners appreciating the clean look it provides. To break up the white, however, kitchen islands are often seen in different paint or stain colors. Kitchen islands have become focal points for kitchens, frequently incorporating pops of color for the design-brave.

Gray is another cabinet color homeowners are gravitating toward. Other tones, such as black, plum, and navy, are also making their way into kitchens these days.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz continues to be popular when it comes to kitchen countertops. This hardy material is easy to maintain as well as anti-microbial. Quartz’s biggest competitor, granite, is not as easy to maintain.

More and more colors are becoming available in quartz, and unique styles and patterns are becoming more and more popular among homeowners. The trend continues toward cleaner design, with many preferring to decorate their kitchens in gray, taupe, and cream-colored quartz finishes.
