7 Kitchen and Bath Design Trends
October is National Kitchen and Bath Month. With the kids getting settled into school and holiday craziness around the corner, this small window of time is a favorite for homeowners to tackle their kitchen and bath remodel ideas.
Even if you’re not in the market for a full-scale redo, there are lots of ways you can freshen up your space with décor and details to make it feel newer.
To keep you up to date, here are some of the best kitchen and bath trends to inspire your project:
Natural wood is popping up everywhere from countertops to walls, and the look is calm, light, and refreshing. You can DIY some bathroom shelving, put up an accent pallet wall, or go for it with reclaimed wood slab countertops.
There have never been more tile options, and a great designer can help you come up with a style that is creative, unique, and all your own. Think outside the box with different shapes and textures.
Gray is proving to be the go-to color for everything from cabinets to walls. It’s incredibly versatile and can complement warm and cool palettes. (We just repainted our Tigard showroom in shades of gray) If you’re not quite ready to install new cabinets, refinishing your existing ones in gray could be a great option.
Black + White
The appeal of the classic black and white palette is its simplicity. You can weave in any pop of color in your décor, and black and white can go from country to modern.
Maximize Space (and hide the clutter)
Storage is always a priority when it comes to cabinet design, and the trend toward minimalism and "tiny" living have forced designers to really think about functionality in our living spaces. In the kitchen, this means custom cabinets that can maximize every nook and cranny. In the bathroom, this means utilizing wall space and the right vanities.
The future is here, from sensor-activated lights to smartphone technology that can sync with a meat thermometer (no really!). A great product to step into the future with is a hands-free kitchen faucet. It’s a great choice if you have small children that can’t reach the faucet handles!
Curbless Showers (or no-threshold showers)
Curbless showers have many appealing points – they’re easy to clean, make a bathroom look bigger, and can help homeowners age in their own homes - besides the fact that they look sleek and stunning.
