Thinking About Redecorating Your Kitchen?

Today's the day you start looking for your dream house. The home with everything you've always wanted. Up-to-date and not a teal wall or shag carpet in sight! Fortunately, there are plenty of gorgeous new homes to choose from. Wonder what they're featuring in the kitchen? Bright Colors Dark, cozy kitchens and Tuscan color schemes are on the way out for new houses. Now the focus is on light, bright gathering places for family and friends. A warm neutral wall color with boldly-colored accents wake up the kitchen and give a festive feel.

This traditional arrangement is now giving way to the idea of "zones," a design strategy that allows you to devote one area to food prep, another to cooking, and yet others to serving, storing, etc. Double ovens are popular, as are special cooking features, such as rotisseries and brick ovens. Cabinets, counters and drawers are becoming more user-friendly, with organizers and ergonomically-friendly heights. Recessed lighting, which can be difficult to reach, is being replaced by pendant lighting, making changing bulbs simple.
