Kitchen Renovations For 2018
If you’re in the market for a new home, keep on the lookout. You’ll definitely want to keep your eyes open for the 5 killer kitchen trends that you’ll lust after in 2018. Home seller, on the other hand, will find it worth their time to become familiar with these trends so that they can give the buyers what they want this year!
GLASS-FRONTED UPPER CABINETS
Glass-fronted upper cabinets are on the wish list of many buyers. They brighten the space and make the uppers look lighter, offer a place to display favorite dishware, and just look so very stylish.
Glass-fronted doors need not be on EVERY upper cabinet, but they create a unique focal point when on one or two.
Under-cabinet lighting, installed under the upper cabinets, is also lusted over. If your home doesn’t have them, don’t worry. This lighting is desirable because it lights up the workspace, provides accent lighting at the touch of a button, and can be used to showcase a fabulous accessory.
They are inexpensive and easy to install. Thanks to LED technology, battery operated stick-on lights shine bright and are attractive. In fact, they even come with a remote for instant mood lighting!
The recent focus on country chic décor has impacted kitchen sink trends. We once had large, deep, utilitarian farmhouse sinks. We swapped those out for stainless steel dual sinks. Guess what? We have re-thought our stance and now want our big, deep sinks back!
A large farmhouse sink creates plenty of room for washing dishes, even the largest pots and pans. They hold a lot of water for cleaning tasks, and they just really look good! White porcelain is the top-seller of this sink style.
DEEP PAN STORAGE DRAWERS
Today’s homeowners don’t like deep and dark cabinets where they stack and unstack pots and pans to access their favorites. It’s time-consuming and awkward to reach. Instead, they are opting for deep pan storage drawers that pull out and offer easy access.
If your home doesn’t have these custom-installed, it can be a DIY project. Kitchen drawer kits can be purchased and installed with just a drill and screwdriver.
A neutral kitchen is a blank canvas. It is classy, elegant, and clean looking. Neutral doesn’t necessarily need to translate to “white” or “boring.” The fact of the matter is that neutrals never go out of style!
It can be soft gray, cream, greige, or tan. It’s a great way to keep a kitchen that’s always on trend.
If you’re a seller, you may be thinking that you don’t want to paint. But think of the white or cream kitchen as you in a simple white outfit…you accessorize it and make it your own! You can add pops of colors though fabulous accessories, countertop appliances, and window treatments.
The neutral kitchen gives the home buyer the opportunity to stamp the space with your very own style!
Whether you are a real estate buyer or seller, there are trends that impact how home purchases are made. The kitchen is a deal breaker for many buyers. Keeping up with the current trends will ensure a smooth transition for both parties.
