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. Popular colors have an international flavor, whether they're the warm, earthy colors of Aztec pottery or the hot, happy oranges and yellows inspired by India. Zones We all know about the kitchen "work triangle." 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.

Decorative Touches in Your Kitchen

Darker cabinet colors are still in, as are stainless steel appliances-although some are choosing to add color accents with red, blue and other non-traditional appliance hues. Granite is still a popular choice for countertops, but don't forget to look at soapstone, slate, marble, or even stainless steel. You can display your unique style in the many variations of kitchen sinks now available. Choose from a "trough" style with multiple faucets, a farmhouse sink, or a seamless version with no edges in which dirt can collect. As for faucet styles-the choices are endless.

You can also make your kitchen your own by choosing special drawer and cabinet pulls, or installing a colorful tile backsplash. Tile is still a flooring favorite, as is urethane-treated wood Of course, as you look at homes to buy, it's best to keep in mind that no dream house is perfect. Remember to leave a little room in your budget to make the decorative changes you love. It make take time, a little extra cash, and some elbow grease, but you can create the perfect home!
